List Of Albums/Bands That I Can Remember Affecting My Life/Music Taste.
In Time: The Best Of REM (1988-2003)
When I was 8 or 9 I decided to go through my dads CD collection and I found this
Gem, I remember Jamming "Man on the moon" And "Losing My Religion" While Playing
Mario Cart Double Dash With my Closest Friend, Who Happens To Still Be My Best
Friend. Mario Cart Still rules!
This Album influenced my taste for Alt Rock in a big way. I went through My older
brothers CD Collection which was huge, And Randomly picked this one to jam to
because of the strange album art. I remember playing tony hawks underground for
ps2. Still The best Tony hawk but I used to jam this and Loved all the heavier
tracks. I specifically remember jamming "Set it off" Due to the fact Chris Cornell
Screamed "Set this fucker off" Dam I was so rebellious.
I found this CD laying around in the garage when I was in 4th Grade. It was my
other Brothers CD. Btw I'm the youngest Yea...Anyways This album really
influenced my taste for pop rock. This album was on constantly, I still enjoy some
of this album, at least the tracks that aren't played out as fuck.
Ten Thousand Fists
My First taste of "Metal" Kinda hard to call it metal now but hey it jammed hard to a
5th grader. I played The shit out of this album, I remember I randomly bought it off
this CD catalog my dad used to get. He let me get one CD a week and I picked this
because it looked bad ass. And to me this CD was the Epitome of Bad ass, I still like
some tracks off this one.
Lost and Found
My Oldest Bro Started seeing my interest for his music and Let me Jam this one. At
first I laughed at it, I thought it was funny how they screamed and didn't take it
seriously. Wow I was a fag...Anyways I came around to liking it and this had a
HUGE impact on my Taste.
I was 11 when this album came out and my oldest brother bought it on it's release
date. I remember he was jamming it when we were going to an outlet mall, I was so
confused of what to make of it. I liked it but then I also thought it was weird, Yeah
I love Tool now, one of my favorite Bands.
|7||Queens of the Stone Age|
Songs for the Deaf
Well my oldest brother finally moved out which sucked because he was like a best
friend to me, even though he was 14 years older than me. He moved into this shitty
trailer park. I still remember this like it was yesterday, Going over there on the
weekend and My both my brothers getting trashed and screaming the lyrics to "No
One Knows" I actually also liked the song, But I liked playing Jet set radio future
more. I was probably in 6th grade, Still love that song.
This album is still one of my all time favorites, I remember listening to this in my
room just doing nothing. The first album I just sat there and jammed to, no video
games or tv. The lyrics on this album really sit with you, even none of it applies to
you when you're 11.
The Sufferer and the Witness
I remember listening to a lot of rise against in middle school but I have no Idea
what album I was listening to. Either way I still enjoy a lot of rise against.
My other brother who isn't moved out yet had this album, I remember him blaring it
so loud and smoking so much weed it was coming through my air vents. I ended up
getting this album from him and jamming it. It was so catchy and had some funny
lyrics, Still like some on this one.
We've Come for You All
This is the farthest I ever got into Anthrax, My oldest bro Told me listen to this and
let me borrow it. I remember jamming "safe home" over and over again. I know
Anthrax had way better albums than this, but this one is so Nostalgic.
Awake: Best Of
My whole family is Christian and I remember my brother who still lived with me really
got into "God" lol anyways I remember jamming this and Loved it, A lot of emotion in
some of these tracks. I still don't believe but maybe some day.
When I think of my childhood I think of the song "you" I was born in 1994 So this
was probably on the radio a lot. I love this song.
Same as above, The Song "December" is so Nostalgic
|15||Red Hot Chili Peppers|
Okay So back with the story line, Lets see I was probably in 7th grade here. I
jammed this with my best bud and played Atv vs Mx for ps2. Good memories...
A Matter of Life and Death
So 8th grade sucked along with 7th and 6th. I hated middle school, I was
Considered "Cool" in elementary school but Middle school I Felt Like I knew hardly
anyone. Everyone changed, got to new friends. I just stopped trying to make new
friends and stuck to the same handful of friends. This album Was on a lot during
middle school. My oldest brothers favorite band to this day, I will probably always
like Iron Maiden.
The Fury of Our Maker's Hand
My oldest brother went to Jail for his 3rd DUI I know what a dumbass. I was in 8th
grade and My dad still had that music Catalog. I remember buying this one because
I knew My brother would like it, I mean It said DevilDriver on the front case
haha..Anyways he ended up liking it, I jammed it too. Probably influenced my Metal
Taste in a big way.
Tempo of the Damned
I went to the Record store with my oldest bro one day. I was in 8th or 9th grade
and he couldn't find anything. I picked this album up and I was like, "You gotta get
this I mean look at it, it looks evil". Neither of us Had heard of exodus, Well we
jammed it on the way home in the rain I specifically remember this. We both
instantly loved it, The vocals and lyrics sold it for me. Love this album!
|19||All That Remains|
The Fall of Ideals
I started to really get into metal in 9th grade and I was in High school now which
was much better than middle school. This is still one of my favorite metal core
The Devil and God Are Raging Inside Me
My oldest brother bought this due to the Rave reviews on sputnik, He still uses
sputnik but never makes an account. I remember putting this on my ipod and
Jamming it Freshman Year. This album Is perfect for winter, just a master piece.
|21||Bullet For My Valentine|
Scream, Aim, Fire
Freshman Algebra was the worst, I started talking to druggies in the class and they
told me about this band. I got it the next day and Jammed it on my ipod during
class. Didn't help me at all and I ended up failing the class...Dam I hate math
|22||Coheed and Cambria|
The Second Stage Turbine Blade
That same druggie who told me about BFMV told me about Coheed and TSSTB to
be exact. Dam I thank him so much for this, although he is locked up for selling a
drug that killed another kid in my school. I never really collected Cd's But I
remember Loving this, I gave it to my bro and I'm guessing he still has it. Coheed is
still one of my favorite bands.
The Slim Shady LP
Never got into rap but Freshman year was a big year in music for me, I remember
Jamming this album while playing Trials HD Which is a fucking amazing game. Can't
wait for Fusion to come out. Anyways This CD is amazing, Loved every song on it.
Revolutionary Volume 2
Jammed this while playing Black Ops one Zombies. I remember I had this album on
repeat while 3 of my friends played Ascension. Took like 8 hours I think and we got
to level 46. Dam I had no life, anyways Love this CD.
My First taste of Death metal, Sophomore year of high school. I started running a
few miles a day and would jam this album all the time. I don't even think I liked it
but I was gonna make my self like it. Lets just say it worked and Death is the shit!
|26||Haste The Day|
I finally had my licence so I took a trip with all my friends to Cedar point in Ohio, I
Jammed this there and back. I like anything by haste the day.
Discovering the Waterfront
My oldest brother had this album and he didn't like it, He said it was gay. Well I
loved it and Still like it A lot. I remember taking it to weight lifting class Junior year.
Jamming it in the schools Jam box. Everyone was like wtf is this shit take that emo
gay shit out. They liked Garbage music like Three days grace and Breaking Benjamin
So fuck them lol
Yes I like Alesana still and I'm not ashamed, I used to Jam this shit non stop Junior
year. This album went hard and It still does. They do sound like shit live though.
|29||Dance Gavin Dance|
Downtown Battle Mountain
I started using Sputnik to check out reviews around this time. Senior year or so and
Man oh man I'm glad I found This band. They are so Different in a good way, I saw
them live about 6 months ago and They sound Good With Tilian. One of my favorite
bands as of now.
|30||The Fall of Troy|
Well after High School i moved to Florida and Have been here for about 6 months or
so. I've gotten into music hard due to the lack of people I know, which is fine I'm
more of a loner anyways. I've been getting into a lot of new music these 6 months.
This is a pretty accurate list of what I've listened to through my 19 years on earth.
