Some Landmark Albums That Change My Life: Strike

List idea from AgentDeathbat.
1Coheed and Cambria
From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness


My first "prog rock" album and still my favorite C&C to this day.
2Metallica
Ride the Lightning


The first Metallica songs I heard ("Fade to Black" and "For Whom The Bell Tolls") and my first Metallica album.
3Linkin Park
Hybrid Theory


I'm a 90's baby and liked LP when I was younger. Honorable mention goes to Meteora.
4Breaking Benjamin
Phobia


First post-grunge/alt. metal album. I felt so hardcore having this.
5Slayer
Reign in Blood


First Slayer album and still the best to this day. Dave was a big influence on me as a drummer and inspired me to play fast.
6Eminem
The Eminem Show


First rap album and still a very solid one. Also helped me deal with life when I was taken away from my family when FDCF (Florida Department of Children and Families) got involved and was put into a horrible harbinger house for almost a year.
7Genesis
Invisible Touch


First Genesis songs I've heard (basically all the singles) and first Genesis album. Still a great one imo.
8Metal Church
Generation Nothing


First Metal Church album and the one that got me into the band.
9Black Sabbath
Paranoid


A timeless classic and my first BS album.
10Guns N' Roses
Appetite for Destruction


Many people know I hate Axhole Rose and don't like GnR, but there was a time I liked this. Also my first hard rock album.
11Shaggy
Hot Shot


Grew up with this so I have a soft-spot for Shaggy.
12Pink Floyd
Wish You Were Here


Album called out to me after my uncle Vinny passed almost 11 years ago. To this day remains my favorite album of all time and holds a special place in my heart.
13Pantera
Cowboys from Hell


Played a big role in leaning me towards my thrash metal binge some off years ago. Still holds up pretty well today. Honorable mentions go to Far Beyond Driven and Vulgar, but I don't like those ones very much anymore.
14Ariana Grande
Dangerous Woman


I have a soft-spot for pop music, but this was the first pop album I loved in its entirety. I liked a lot of pop songs from pop albums not not necessarily the albums overall. Album rules, and so does Ari.
15Iron Maiden
The Number of the Beast


My first NWOBHM album and my first Iron Maiden album.
16Halestorm
Halestorm


One of my first hard rock albums and my first rocker chick crush.
17Avril Lavigne
Let Go


Again...90's baby, and this thing was everywhere.
18Disturbed
The Sickness


sigh.......................
19Snoop Dogg
Doggystyle


Got me into more black rap. fo' shizzle
20Beastie Boys
Licensed to Ill


Fell in love on first listen and played an important role for appreciating hip hop.
21Shadows Fall
Threads of Life


I don't love these guys, but I got this when it first came out and played a big role in appreciating thrash metal (which has been my favorite genre since).
22Pink
M!ssundaztood


2001/2002 were great years for me as far as pop/pop rock/hip hop is concerned, and this was one of the ones my mom loved that she got me into.
23Megadeth
Countdown to Extinction


First Megadeth album and basically soldified my status as a thrasher.
24Green Day
American Idiot


First punk album and a good one.
25Faith No More
The Real Thing


First alt. album and made me appreciate the funkier, more experimental side of rock.
26Dragonlord
Rapture


The album that made me curious about death metal and black metal.
27Bathory
The Return of the Darkness and Evil


The first black metal album I fell in love with.
28Death
Symbolic


My first death metal album and among the greatest ever made.
29Tool
10,000 Days


I don't love Tool, but this was my first Tool album and one of the important albums for my appreciation for prog. music.
30Alice in Chains
Dirt


First grunge album and still the best.
31Led Zeppelin
Led Zeppelin IV


John Bonham was the fucking man and a big influence on me as a drummer, especially for drum tuning.
32Phil Collins
No Jacket Required


Also one of my biggest influences as a drummer and my first Phil Collins album.
33Maroon 5
Songs About Jane


If any band solidified my favoritism for the poppier side of music, it's these guys.
34Justin Timberlake
Justified


2002 as mentioned before was a great year for me. This was one of those albums my mom and I wanted to have mostly due to Nsync.
35Anal Cunt
It Just Gets Worse


Nothing more to say. Best shit ever made.
