Twenty One Pilots Star Was Forced To Hide Music From Parents

Twenty One Pilots

(TeamRock) Twenty One Pilots members Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun have opened up on being raised in strict households in Columbus, Ohio. They've gone on to release four albums, with their most recent full-length Blurryface reaching no.1 on the Billboard 200 chart in May last year.

Dun reports that he was forced to hide albums by artists including Green Day, Blink-182, Dr Dre and Eminem when he was younger, as his parents disapproved of his taste in music.

Dun reports: "They were pretty strict - I was never allowed to play video games. Music was actually the biggest factor - they were real conservative about what I listened to. Looking back, I was the first kid, so I think they were really trying their best.

"I wasn't really allowed to listen to rock music. When I tell you I skated to the local music shop, those were CDs I was bringing home and hiding under the mattress." Read about Tyler's experiences here.
