Sounds Like Teen Spirit 

Panda and Please Quiet Ourselves prove that the music industry is not just for grown-ups anymore.

While all of the parents feel college is important, they too don't want it to stand in the way of the current opportunity with Panda. "The chances are 99-to-one that this is gonna die at some point," says Larry Diller, Louie's dad. "So if you give advice and it dies, then you'll be blamed. Better to stay out of it and let them die on their own. And if they make it, they've made it on their own."

This, perhaps above all, is the essential point for all parties involved. Though Panda's parents will naturally fade from the picture now that all five members are over eighteen and living away from home, Please Quiet Ourselves is still operating well within the parental sphere of influence. And it's still fiercely protective of its independence. "There's this thing with the band where we're trying to keep the parents out of it," Jojo said. "It's not very rock 'n' roll."
