My writeups are complete.
I haven't had time to do a full one but here's some for black metal:
De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas - Mayhem
Translvannian Hunger -Darkthrone
Storm of the Light's Bane - Dissection
and anything from Burzum.

I added examples of other genres of D&B I didn't include albums for.
Zack, I have heard you talk about the Cocteau Twins before and I'm going to check them out, I don't really know anything about the dark wave genre.
Donald, thank you! I have heard of High Contrast, but never listened. Logistics and Netsky are now on my radar and I'm going to check them out.
These lists might have personal skews to them, as mine does. While Q and Sunny Day may not technically belong on the same list, I associate them with each other as this was stuff I was into at the same period of time as the other bands on the list.

Shiner, No Knife, Engine Down and Bluetip. I can almost guarantee that I'll love these, as 5 of the other 6 are amongst my favorite albums (I would have swapped out For Your Own Special Sweetheart, but I still love Jawbox.)
Also, would you include Jawbreaker in this sound, or are they more straight up early emo, back when that wasn't so derogatory and shitty?
Not really sure on Jawbreaker. I was never much into the lyrical content of any of these bands, I just liked how the music sounded. I mean there are bands that I could make an "emo" list out of from the same time period, but I doubt that we could all sit down and agree 100% on a list of bands in such a specific genre. Expect some links in the near future.
Well Jawbreaker always seemed a little bit more directly melodically focused than these other bands, but I found out about them when tracking down stuff from Jawbox and fell in love then.
This was probably the first type of music I really crate-dug for, metaphorically (since I was just buying CDs) and I still love it.
Shiner's The Egg was a staple album for me in college. You'll enjoy it, BryMack.
*based upon tedious fact checking.
I would 100% include Jawbreaker's Bivouac in a list like that. I also think Lifetime's Hello Bastards and Hot Water Music's Fuel For The Hate Game are required listening for this genre as well. Texas Is The Reason's Do You Know Who You Are? and Mineral's EndSeranading are also amazing.
EDIT: Maybe we should just start a post-hardcore thread. i could go on and on about this subject
See I didn't think that Mineral or TexasITR fit. Sonically anyway. This is where these lists may run into problems.
Added a few more genres.
Also, Still-Ill's post-punk list is fantastic and there's actually a few things on Bryan's LA punk list that I'm not all that familiar with (Dils, Black Randy). The reason I was going to do West Coast as opposed to LA was so I could include Flipper and Crime and the Dead Kennedys. There's probably enough material to do an entire Bay Area punk primer, but I don't know if I'm familiar enough to do it. And Donald gets the special achievement prize. Although in the future, if people are including videos in their lists, it would probably be a good idea to just link to the track instead of embedding it so there's not like 50 videos to load per page. Not trying to discourage the inclusion of videos because I think it's awesome, just want to make this as useful and easy as possible.

Made it through work with my 2 hours of sleep and finally home. I think Donald has inspired another dive into DnB. Thanks for the great links. I hadn't really stayed up to date and this will give me a huge head start in updating my catalog. I was really suprised when I went through my DnB section and found some High Contrast, Klute, and Optical & Ed Rush begging to have a needle placed in their delicate vinyl grooves. Time to scare the nieghbors. Appreciate the inspiration Donald. Major props!
Nah, you've done enough. Just for future consideration.
Donald wins the thread!!!
This guy is keeping really good time to Klute!
