My first CD was NOW This was gifted to me.

But the first CD I ever bought for myself was The Marshall Mathers LP. I remember having to take my mom with me to the store because I wasn't old enough to buy the explicit version.

I remember the clerk looking at the CD and asking my mom "Are you sure you want the explicit version?"

My mom looked at me and said: "Are you sure this is the one you want?"

I said "YUP"


45 minutes later my mom was taking my new cd away. I never saw it again.


That's awesome... I remember exactly where I was in life when the Marshall Mathers LP came out... 17 years old and totally out of control... My love of Eminems music was the least of my parents concerns.

... good times.

Aerosmith - Get a Grip

I was maybe twelve. I knew that Aerosmith had had some good songs from before my time, and, lacking discernment, thought that all Aerosmith music must be pretty good. I did like it at the time, but if I heard it now I have serious misgivings about whether I'd think it was even slightly listenable.

I had several LPs but they were not what you would call "rock-n-roll" (Steve Martin, the Star Wars soundtrack, etc.).

Then a guy that lived up the street turned 13. He wanted some rock music because all he had was Parliament and a Robin Williams album. He gave me the task to get something current, listenable, and kind of rocked.

I peddled my bike down to the retail store (lamps, vacuums, light bulbs, TVs, but they had a record section).

Judas Priest - Unleashed in the East
Blue Oyster Cult - Some Enchanted Evening
AC/DC - Highway to Hell

We listened to AC/DC a couple times in a row! Everybody was, "Hey, I like these guys!" Some of the girls were freaked out by Rob Halford on front cover dressed in leather and sunglasses! hehe.

Let's see... a skeleton, a devil with horns, and S&M... not a bad haul for a teenager! It has been down hill ever since!

Damn... I guess I listened to some really dark music right before I hit my teenage years.

I didn't buy it, my mother did but my first record was a 45 of The Lion Sleeps Tonight.

My first LP was Simon And Garfunkel Sounds of Silence. I have to admit though that Disturbed has redone that song in the most amazing way and it blows the original out of the water.

I don't remember my first, record, its not like sex. I remember all my albums, mostly.

Thanks be to interwebs if I can remember a line, title or artist, I can find them out there.

Good music catches the ear.

Rocker from way back machine, pretty much since the genre was invented.

I cant believe I am going to share this but the first album I ever spent my own $$ on was the soundtrack to Grease 2.

I still know most of the songs. I am so ashamed.
