Albums I Thought I'd Hate But Didn't.

This is a list of albums I really expected to hate based on what people had told me, what I had heard from the album, their past efforts etc. and ended up really liking. Some of them are really guilty pleasures though, I will admit.
1Fall Out Boy
Infinity on High

Yeah. I admit it. I like this album a lot. I assumed that since everyone and their mother has hated on this band since late 2006 that it would suck. But I really liked it. It's just too damn infectious for me not to like it.
2The Shins
Chutes Too Narrow

This was the first indie band I ever got into. From the brief snippets of this type of music I had always heard from my indie-hipster friend, I assumed that it was all really pretentious, annoying, silly stuff for wannabe-artsy kids. Then randomly, one night I decided to listen to this at another friend's house (he also wasn't into indie at the time). Within the first 30 seconds we were practically having an orgasm over how great it was. And that began my friendly relationship with the world of indie rock.
3Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin IV

I hated classic rock up until I turned 13. I was only into the punk rock type stuff at the time, and assumed classic rock was boring, just "old people music." Then I found this. It took some time to grow on me, but before I knew it, they were my favorite band and still remain so to this day.
4Nine Inch Nails
With Teeth

Everyone kept telling me how sh!t this album was. That NIN had lost the plot. They still tell me that. And I still don't see what's wrong with it. It has some of their best work, I think.
5Michael Jackson

Being a teen during a time in which Michael Jackson was the most popular butt of jokes at school meant that by default, his music was lame. Then I found this on record in my dad's ancient record collection. I looked through the tracks and decided to skip to "Thriller," and I instantly remembered it and the video from some vague childhood memory. Then I skipped to a little song called "Billie Jean." Today, he is one of my favorite artists.
