Interested in your kids listening to wholesome music?  We’ve compiled a music chart to do just that.  Find the mainstream bands your kids like and then get them to try some of our suggestions (we’ve hyperlinked most of the bands to their homepage).  While some mainstream bands certainly put out some wholesome music, many do not.  Yet there are many bands who sound just as good and have great lyrics as well. So get the best of both worlds.  You can find most of our suggested groups’ CD’s at any music store, on their website or through iTunes.
