While previous research has established relationships between perceived parenting styles and children’s deviant behaviours, and links between these behaviours and liking for intense and rebellious music, no research has explored the associations between perceived parenting styles and children’s liking for different music styles. Whereas previous research has considered musical taste by looking at a small number of individual difference variables in isolation from one another, the present research used a cross-sectional correlational design to investigate whether parenting styles, the big five personality traits, sensation-seeking, age, and gender were associated with liking for different music styles. Three hundred and thirty-six Australians completed an online, self-report questionnaire. Analyses demonstrated that there were relationships between five of the six parenting style variables and five of the music styles considered. This indicates that various parenting styles were associated with musical taste, and that the nature of these associations extends well beyond those concerning rebellious music and neglectful parenting that have been identified by previous research.
