You may not be able to teach an old dog new tricks, but it’s possible to teach your good ol’ dad about new music. There’s a really easy formula to help you update your dad’s playlist so it includes something from this millennium: find younger artists who remind him of his favorite classic artists.

We’ve figured out the easiest conversion that will result in minimum complaints from your pops. If he’s a fan of Bruce Springsteen we have a Springsteen-like act that will remind him of the good ol’ days. If he likes Tom Petty, do we have a heartlands rocker for him. He’s a big John Fogerty or Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin fan? You bet we have a new(ish) artist for him.

We promise all of our choices are the perfect remedy for getting dad out of his classic rock slump without shaking things up too much.

Your dad may not thank you for this gift now, but we bet he will do it later, once he’s finished acclimating himself to these new, yet familiar sounds that will finally take away some of that dad rock stigma.

Check out the list of new music your ol’ dad will love on
