what's in my bag fathers

It's almost Father's Day and we wanted to pay homage to all the rad fathers of the world, particularly the ones who share their love of music with their kids. Here are our Top 5 What's In My Bag? episodes featuring dads at Amoeba. Two episodes feature dads shopping alongside their kids and the others are fathers trying to navigate that potential minefield of picking out music for their children. 

5. Jay Bentley of Bad Religion and his son, Hunter, demonstrate what happens when the generations listen to very different musical styles. Unlike his punk rocker dad, Hunter is an aspiring rap artist and picks up underground hip hop. Watch as Jay reacts to his son giving Bad Religion some praise. (Start at 2:37 for the conversation between father and son.)

Modern Rock

The early 80's fascination with blossoming computer culture seemed to go hand in hand with an apprehensive take on its possible uses... These themes made for some very interesting makeovers.  Throw in a little Sci-fi and a touch of New Wave and you've got some very "Modern Rock"...

Grace Slick and the Airplane folks had a few records with technological themes...

Peter Frampton attempted his own computer makeover below, the 80's were not his decade...
