Rating: List Type:
Two Things at Once - Descendents
When I discovered this it pretty much changed my life.
Alkaline Trio - Alkaline Trio
I still won't admit to myself that these guys now suck.
Pretty Hate Machine - Nine Inch Nails
Spectacular combination of seething anger and heartache. Just what any teenage boy needs to listen to, right?
Don't Turn Away - Face To Face
Just bought my 3rd copy of this...why do people keep stealing my shit?
Losing Streak - Less Than Jake
Great live act and all kinds of fun.
Scream, Dracula, Scream! - Rocket from the Crypt
Still pissed I never caught them live. R.I.P. RFTC!
Wish - The Cure
I still can't listen to "Letter to Elise" without thinking of numerous high school break-ups.
The Moon and Antarctica - Modest Mouse
I liked them first!
Life Won't Wait - Rancid
The only rancid album I can still listen to front to back.
Don't Let The Bastards Grind You Down (D.L.T.B.G.Y.D.)... - The Toasters
Xtort - Kmfdm
Pretty sure I carved most of the lyrics to "Dogma" into my english class desk.
Pinkerton - Weezer
This album was emo before there was emo. And it was the only good album they ever made. But damn, was it good.
Kill the Musicians - Screeching Weasel
Version 2.0 - Garbage
Soundtrack to Carrie's car! I still love you Carrie!
Strapped Live! - The Pietasters
Probably responsible for beginning my brief love affair with gin.
Goddamnit - Alkaline Trio
Question the Answers - The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Revenge Is Sweet, and So Are You - The Mr. T Experience
Hoss - Lagwagon
I always felt it was cooler to like Lagwagon than it was to like NOFX. Kinda still feel that way.
Very Emergency - Promise Ring
A quietly awesome album.
Stranger Than Fiction - Bad Religion
The Fragile - Nine Inch Nails
White Light, White Heat, White Trash - Social Distortion
Mike Ness is very nearly as good at being Johnny Cash as Johnny Cash.
Operation Ivy (Dig) - Operation Ivy
Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash - The Replacements
Hometown heros. And plain fucking great.
10+ years later I don't apologize for any of them...except maybe the Mr. T Experience...they do kinda suck. But thank god for these albums!
