    first album I ever bought was Green Day's Nimrod, which I still really like.

    Second album I bought, and still one of my favorites. easily the one I would say "started it all"



    and I gotta give Dre a nod, listening to the same cd at least once a month since middle school

    My love for music started with a strange combination of Aerosmith, Michael Jackson, Jazz, Opera and Gospel Music.

    My dad used to sing opera, so he was always rehearsing and singing around the house. My step-mom when I was like.... 4, used to play Aerosmith ALL the time. And According to my dad, Michael Jackson's recorded live concerts used to babysit me.

    And through all that, my mom was a Gospel choir director with a deep seated love for Luther Vandross.

    I guess you could say I just growing up surrounded by such different styles of music shaped me.

    I grew up hearing my parents' music, as well as that of my older brother and sisters, but the definitive moment came when I was 10 years old I drove with my dad from California to AZ, during which time he introduced me to Cream. Disraeli Gears. That was it for me.

    But the first cd I bought was Offspring Smash when I was 12

    That's pretty awesome to have such diversity at that young age.

    My dad was the ultimate James Brown fan, and was entranced by the whole Doo-Wop sound from the 50's and 60's.

    My first CD was 4 by Blues Traveler. My first tape was a Gloria Estefan one. My first concert was either Jimmy Buffett or Peter Parul and Mary. Dookie probably made me fall in love with music.

    Nice thread....

    On one hand I had a much older brother into breakdancing and hip hop so at six, he was 12, we would walk up and down the street with a ghetto blaster (that he let me hold so if my hearing ever goes, I'll blame him) bumping Eric B. and Rakim.

    On the other hand, at home my Pops was really into classic rock, The Eagles, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Thin Lizzy, The Beatles, and Stones. Him and his friends would get together on Fridays, drink beer, and make their own mixes on Reel to reels. I loved it and thought it was the coolest thing ever.

    My 1st tape I ever owned, bought by my older brother of course, was Scarface (of the Geto Boys) 1st album, Mr. Scarface is back. I remember my Dad being upset but understanding. All three of us sat in the living room and listened to that tape. My Dad just sat there not saying anything. I was 10 years old at the time and boy.....the things I heard that day.....Actually weren't that new because three years earlier my brother got the Too Short Life is Too Short tape. I wasn't supposed to listen to it but one night I found it laying around. I hid in my room with the lights off for a week straight listening to it. One night I got busted and the tape was thrown away. I just remember the line...where he talks about going to the white house and Reagan's wife giving him a blow job and sucking it like it was corn on the cob.

    I didn't even know what that was but the way he spit that line had me hooked.

    The first album that I ever wore out: According to my father, it was "Frampton Comes Alive" but I don't see how that is humanly possible. My first favorite albums that I remember listening to repeatedly are "Morrison Hotel" and "Breakfast In America".

    The first tape I bought with my own money: "Seven and the Ragged Tiger" by Duran Duran
    First CD bought with my own money: "Substance" (New Order)...damn thing cost me $28.99 + tax, ha ha

    The first CD's I gave to my children out of my own collection were: "Tommy" (to my older daughter) and "Mania" (Ramones) to my younger daughter. My younger one could not get enough of "Beat On The Brat" so I gave it up so she would take it in her room and listen to it.

    My mom raised me on Zeppelin, Rush and Grunge as a kid, but it wasn't until I bought my first CD that my music infatuation began. I was 10 years old and it was the Beatles "1" that changed my life and my perception of a good song forever.

    layla - clapton. the acoustic version caught my ear when i was like 9-10 and i've been in love with music ever since.

    the first electronic song that made me go woah what is this was weapon of choice - fatboy slim
    the music is what its all about, you love it just like i love it.

    Well my memories go far back to when my dad would play 60's rock n' roll on vinyl records. It was all in spanish and hell it felt good.I was about 4-5 years old. Then I got older about 11 years old and my mom became a christian and I was not allowed to listen to secular music. I would sneak tapes into my room and listen to Caifanes. They would just make me feel sooo good inside.That is why their reunion at Coachella is going to make history in My Life.Then in 2001 I started loving The Strokes because it went back to reminding me to the good rock my dad would play when I was little. Oh yeah , There is a song by the band La Union called "Lobo Hombre en Paris" that I can listen to over and over. The song is from 1982, the year I was born.

    It 's awesome reading stories like your Caifanes one, especially knowing that it'll all be coming around full circle at Coachella this year.

    I remember when I was in like 3rd grade (would have been like 1990ish) and I had a Sony Walkman (the kind that played tapes.) I remember being totally obsessed with these two albums:

    I can remember, when I was about 6-7 years old, Violator by Depeche Mode was always on in my house so anything off that album really and that comes from my mom. On my dad's side, I'd have to say Led Zeppelin I, II, III & IV albums, it was never just one particular song.

    I remember it was around my eleventh birthday and I was in fifth grade. As cliche as it may sound compared to the music tastes of a lot of people, it was Daft Punk - One More Time for me. I saw the music video and it just put me in a trance. Spent the next few days watching MTV religiously until they showed it again and I could record it. It was the first ever song I did karaoke to (pretty weak song, but it was fifth grade). But that got it started for me. Shortly after I found Dr. Dre.

    The first album I ever felt I needed to buy was Funeral. I walked into the record store specifically for that one CD but walked out with Bob Dylan: The Essentials Vol 1&2 and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness also. Not a bad way to start off

    Neil Young - Harvest Moon. Probably 1992-1994, 6-7 years old. My mom is probably the biggest Neil Young fan I've ever known. Whenever we rode in the car she would have some kind of Neil on, and that was the album that really struck me. Still one of my favorite albums.

    Another one was Don Henley's End of the Innocence. I don't know why, but when I was a kid I loved it. Springsteen is probably another one of the firsts I enjoyed.

    My dad is a die hard Jerry Garcia and Grateful Dead fan, but I never really got into them that much until a few years ago. But I think hearing them all the time when I was younger influenced what I listen to now.

    Loved Otis Redding and Clarence Carter, too.

    This thread is awesome.
