impressionable cousins
When I was 16ish, I regularly babysat my 3 younger cousins, all boys, probably around 3, 5 and 7 years old at the time. I was quite into metal at the time (dark scandinavian stuff, not american crap), and so begins my cousins' journey into black metal and the devil.

I thought, the lyrics being foreign, they wouldn't understand what was being said, but being so eager to impress me they would grab my cds, google the names, and read up all about them, their lyrics, what they stood for (thank god they didn't look up Gorgoroth), and similiar bands.

From thereon every time I'd show up to babysit I'd have 3 under 8 year olds running up and shouting suggestions of various black metal bands and which songs were best, somewhat to this style.

5 year old: Munch! Have you listened to the new album from Hordes of Maggots?
7 year old: yeah! 'Satan's legion' is awesome!
Cue- 2 year old headbanging violently, bashing into walls and furniture, but too hardcore to care.

I had a lot of explaining to do. Regularly.

As a parent
I'd have grinned and said "Well done, lad", being glad they're not be exposed to X-Factor type bollocks.
I'm still trying to convince my youngest boy (4) that Korn (minus sweary tracks) is good, Beyonce BAD.

I have a 50% success rate, so far
My eldest daughter (7) likes Cheryl Cole (shudder). My youngest (5) likes hardcore dutch drum and bass...

You just have to find bands to bridge the gap between pop and rock, then slowly bend them to the dark side. Melodic, female fronted metal bands has always worked on my ex girlfriends. *grand, evil cackle*

My sister spent a lot of time while pregnant with her laptop on her belly
The speakers were on the front edge of the laptop, and so my nephew was treated to plenty of Slipknot (Christ alone knows why) while in the womb.

After my nephew hatched, whenever my sister wanted some peace and quiet, she'd put on a Slipknot CD. My nephew would fall asleep almost immediately.
