The Nostalgia List

Hello I'm the Nostalgia Cri...wait, no I'm not. I'm just a random music nerd with a list of nostalgic albums. There were other albums that influenced me back when I could still count my CDs, but these are the ones that hold a special place in my heart.
1The Beatles
1962 - 1966

1993-1994. The one that started it all. The first "real" record I ever heard. My father owned it on cassette tape, and seeing its cover brings back memories of many a car ride listening to "All My Lovin'" or "Please Please Me". 'Beatles For Sale' or the Anthology would also have a place here, but this one really was the turning point in my life.

1994-1995. If it wasn't for this album, I would not be a rocker today. Enough said.
'74 Jailbreak

1995-1996. The album that started my love affair with my favourite band. Show Business was my jam for years after I got it.
4Bon Jovi

1996-ish. "YOUR LOVE IS LIKE BAAAAAD MEDICINE!" I must have worn out the tape just listening to that one song.
Middle Of Nowhere

1996. I got this for my 11th birthday, and it was EXACTLY what I had been wanting. The rest of the album was pretty meh to me at the time, but WHO CARES?! MMMBOP'S ON IT!
6 Mamonas Assassinas

1996-1997. When I was in sixth grade, EVERYONE listened to these Brazilian jokesters. My Mum never let me buy the album, as they were a bit vulgar, but I still knew (and sang) all the singles. Because I was too young to understand the band's juvenile sexual humour, I tended to misinterpret some of the words as more innocent things.

1997. This was my jam the summer after sixth grade. Heaven knows why I never got the album, as I loved the shit out of most of the songs. Dr. Jones was a particular favourite.

1997. I got this for my twelfth birthday if I'm not mistaken, a present from an elderly aunt who'd got it through a recommendation. Rock On The Radio and Shake And Tumble became favourites soon afterwards, and Love Of A Lifetime would serve as the soundtrack for a txt-mance I had with a girl a few years later.
9The Prodigy
The Fat Of The Land

1997-1998. I was agonizing over whether to purchase "Spice" or "Backstreet's Back" (yeah, really) when my Mum came up with this album. I liked the cover, and "Firestarter" was on a videogame soundtrack, so I got it instead. Mum to the rescue once again!
10 Bomfunk Mc's
In Stereo

1999. In the Summer of 1999, everyone at camp became obssessed with "Freestyler" - myself included. Another one I never had, but is still nostalgic nonetheless.
11The Offspring

1999-2000. Albums You Had To Have In Ninth Grade, Pt. 1. Everyone loved the shit out of the singles, of course, but my true jams were Walla Walla and No Brakes.
12Green Day

1999-2000. Albums You Had To Have In Ninth Grade, Pt. 2. This one I didn't pay much attention to - aside from the singles - until years later. I mainly bought it for the singles and to look cool. I don't regret it though.
13Limp Bizkit
Chocolate Starfish...

1999-2000. Albums You Had To Have In Ninth Grade, Pt. 3. I had it recorded on cassette tape off my friend's copy. Rollin' was my jam. I remember my friends and I trying to count the F-bombs on the title track. This year, I also sat next to a girl I had a crush on whose favourite song at the time was "No Sex".
The Marshall Mathers LP

2000. Albums You Had To Have In Ninth Grade, Pt. 4. I went in for The Real Slim Shady and I stayed for Stan. My friends and I used to think the interlude on "Criminal" was the funniest thing ever.

2000. The album that got me into the heavier side of things. Once again, my Mum's work. Listening to this the first time was like being thrown against a brick wall.
16Linkin Park

2003. Why "Meteora" and not "Hybrid Theory"? Because "Meteora" was burned to CD for me by a girl, as a present of sorts - thus giving me my fondest Linkin Park memory.
