From 1974 to 1978, a bunch of music rebels (some who could barely play) gathered in the Bowery in New York City to pump life into a disco-overloaded music scene. The place was CBGB.

In a few instances, we even find three generations of musicians (the Carter Family, the Williams' and the Guthries).
A couple of notes: Sting's son Joe Sumner is in the band Fiction Plane. David Crosby's son (James Raymond) plays with him in the band CPR. The band 3T features three of Tito Jackson's sons. Ally Palmer of the Scottish punk band TV21 is the dad of Michael Palmer of We Were Promised Jetpacks.
Here's the family affair:
