11-year old sister wants me to refer some music for her iPod. Any suggestions?

She just got an iPod. I told her the obvious Jonas brothers, Miley, soundtracks to disney movies like Camp Rock, High School Musical, etc. But she's not really a fan of Miley/Hannah Montana, or too many of those other Disney Channel stars. Hell if I'm going to tell her about the bands that I listen to, because everything these days is too mature for that age group. Anyone have any ideas?

    I don't think you should recommend stuff like Miley and the Jonas Brothers. I mean, you don't want her to become just another teenybopper do you? Get her hooked on some REAL music!

    If you're looking for music that has good lyrics (little to no swearing, songs that tell stories instead of bad messages, etc), here are some that I recommend:


    - Amaranth

    - Eva

    - The Islander

    - Nemo

    - Wish I Had An Angel

    - Ever Dream

    - Sleeping Sun

    Within Temptation

    - Ice Queen

    - Mother Earth

    - What Have You Done

    - See Who I Am

    - Memories

    - Stand My Ground

    Lacuna Coil

    - Closer

    - Our Truth

    - Angel's Punishment


    - Cry for the Moon

    - Solitary Ground

    - Never Enough


    - The Humain Stain

    Source(s): Just some ideas to get you started ..... these bands have dozens more great songs btw.

    I think rihanna might be a good choice. And there are also some other great artists for young girls. Title - Artist - Album Please dont stop the music - Rihanna - Good girl gone bad Shut up and Drive - Rihanna - Good girl gone bad Hate That I Love You - Rihanna - Good girl gone bad Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis - Spirit No One - Alicia Keys - ( Not Sure) Clumsy - Fergie - The Dutchness About You Now - Sugababes - Change Hot - Avril Lavigne - Best Damn Thing Contagious - Avril Lavigne - Best Damn Thing Innocence - Avril Lavigne - Best Damn Thing Keep Holding On - Avril Lavigne - Best Damn Thing Happy Ending - Mika - life in Cartoon Motion I think your daughter will love these songs because I love them myself (I'm only a year older). However if you don't seem to keen on the songs above think you should get some "High School Musical Songs"

    Just tell her what you listen to. It's better than those crappy disney kids. I'm 11, I don't even watch disney channel or listen to poppish music.

    Maybe something like Metro Station, or something.

    Mayday Parade

    All Time Low

    Automatic Loveletter

    From First To Last

    Some songs of the band Alesana

    Just go on http://purevolume.com

    What kid who wears purple said haha.

    Metro station- shake it


    Vanessa Hudgens new stuff.

    alternative rock is good. like Jack's Mannequin or Relient K.

    maybe even try some J.LO?
