Whatever is on the radio or my iPhone at the moment. I don't police the radio for the students... if something comes on that I am uncomfortable with then I turn it. It takes a lot to shock me though. I despise the secular vs non-secular argument... just because a band sings about Jesus doesn't somehow elevate their art above a band that doesn't. I'm sure there are many that would disagree... use wisdom and you're good to go.

According to the Youth Ministers Rap (see link below) We should play 4 Chris Tomlin tracks for every 1 Hillsong United track.

Alright, sillyness aside, my only stipulation is that it's Christian music, or it has to be clean secular music. I dislike listening to worship music for long periods of time, so I'll try and switch it up and avoid staying in one genre of music for too long. The last road trip playlist I made was mostly DC*B, John Reuben, KJ-52, Family Force5, The Classic Crime, Bluetree, Brooke Fraiser, Flyleaf and Fireflight. There was a few more, but there's a pretty wide range that should keep most teens happy.

Sometimes's I'll even blast some mid 90's techno... it's a good time.

I like the idea of letting the students do a mix. Along the same line, if there is a favorite band of at least a majority of the kids, play some of that band's music. Variety would be the key on a long trip, so that at least there's a little for everyone. I'm sure that most kids have their ipods, etc filled with secular music. Let the church van rock out Christian music!

We've always kept the music Christian. However, I let the youth pick out the artists. Like you, I like the occassional 80's song once in a while, but then you do have to deal with worrying about the next song on the station's playlist. In my opinion, keep the music Christian, but let them choose the artists beforehand and you can make a mixed cd. By letting the students choose the music, they will still be listening to music they enjoy, and you can rest easy about the content. That's what I've done in the past with great results every time!
