Help me create a playlist for a kids snowboard park.

I need a music playlist for a ski school terrain park.

It's really hard to select a several hour long playlist composed of songs that are cool enough to have some cred with the kids, while not sending the parents to the admin desk to complain about hearing the f word 47 times. Can you help me create a selection of songs from any musical genre to jam over some big speakers in a kids snowboard and ski park?

Play the kids Mozart and Bach. Start with the Art of Fugue one morning, and in the afternoon, move over to a few of the Sonatas for Keyboard and Violin. Go from there.

The first song that comes to my mind is Joe Satriani's Surfing with the Alien.

White Stripes. I don't think there is any profanity in their music. Just don't let the parents know their latest album is named Get Behind Me Satan.

Weezer, Pinkerton or the self-titled.

For amped up music to almost die to while sliding on frozen dihydrogen monoxide, I strongly recommend

Rob Zombie - Dragula
Leftfield - Open Up (and most of the non-chill tracks on leftism)
Hybrid - pretty much all their (non chill stuff)
Crystal Method - Vegas

Try some crazy Drum & Bass stuff (grooverider) or wierd Trip-Hop (amon tobin's faster stuff)

These are all old-school (i.e. 1990-95), beat-related music, but hopefully the sprogs won't care.

I'm a 2 planked w**ker, but this works on 1 plank too.
