If you're like many Americans, chances are your Thanksgiving plans involve a healthy dose of family time.

Either way, here are 10 musical families you might not mind talking tofurkey with.

Bonus: Scroll to the bottom (or just click here) for a complete Spotify playlist featuring family bands. It's guaranteed to get you through that road trip to your in-laws' place in the suburbs, or just drown out any dinner-conversation-turned-political-debate.
