Hello i am a massive fan of music both playing and listening and wanted to find out what bands/artists really got you into music when you were a
teenager growing up.
I will start it off with the bands that really changed my life at school, although i rarely listen to some of these bands these days as i prefer other
genres now, its always good to come back to them from time to time.
Ive added my favourite songs from each album that first got me into that band!
When i was about 11 years old and grew out of the cheesy pop thing, the first band i really got into was OASIS!
About a year later it was NIRVANA,i was totally obsessed with this band!
When i was in high school and first heard life is peachy by KORN i couldnt believe my ears i thought it was the coolest thing i'd ever heard!
The last one was PEARL JAM a band i still love to listen too now ten years later and probably still my favourite band of all time!
I look forward to hearing yours, peace!

I was never interested in music as a kid, it wasn't until I got to about 13 that I started listening to bands like lynkin park and tenacious d.
I carried on listening to bands like that until about 16 where I started listening to rap and hip hop, artists like Dre, Snoop, Eminem, NWA...
When I turned 18 I started going out to clubs and more or less started to hate rap & hip hop, and turned my ears towards scouse house which is a very
fast paced, hardstyle type of dance music personified by the infamous "donk" Here's a link if anyone wants to know what a donk is, I guarantee you
will probably hate it though
I pretty much have a very wide range of music I listen to. My mp3 player has stuff from all over the genre board. Nearly every artist in this thread
so far are in the thing. I listen to classical, easy listening, golden oldies, rap, metal (all forms of it), Christian, R&B, pop, and even country. I
doubt there is not a genre I do not listen to. I really think that 8 track (that I now have) is a huge part of my love of music.
