Minor Threat - "I Don't Want to Hear It
A surprising choice, I realize, but the one time I played this song for my daughter, she made this face like she was traveling really fast through a wind tunnel the whole time it was on, and I found it super hilarious.
Ryan Adams - "Come Pick Me Up"
Again, this is a tough one because there's so much awesome cursing in it, but in my experience all kids love it pretty much immediately, which makes sense because it is perfect. My kid actually loves most of this record—she really likes the argument about the Morrissey song in the beginning because someone says, "Oh, he's got a mouth full of cookies," which she thinks is the funniest thing in the world.
Morrissey - "Every Day is Like Sunday"
And, speaking of Morrissey... No, I don't know. I've never played this song for a kid, but I'm definitely going to really soon, and I'll let you know how it goes. It would also be acceptable if you were to choose one of the many Morrissey songs that at least sounds happy despite being massively depressing.
