25 things that got me through high school
1 01. Two Things at Once - Descendents
When I discovered this it pretty much changed my life.
37 7.72. Alkaline Trio - Alkaline Trio
I still won't admit to myself that these guys now suck.
3 63. Pretty Hate Machine - Nine Inch Nails
Spectacular combination of seething anger and heartache. Just what any teenage boy needs to listen to, right?
5 7.84. Don't Turn Away - Face To Face
Just bought my 3rd copy of this...why do people keep stealing my shit?
39 7.75. Losing Streak - Less Than Jake
Great live act and all kinds of fun.
16 7.96. Scream, Dracula, Scream! - Rocket from the Crypt
Still pissed I never caught them live. R.I.P. RFTC!
72 7.67. Wish - The Cure
I still can't listen to "Letter to Elise" without thinking of numerous high school break-ups.
81 8.18. The Moon and Antarctica - Modest Mouse
I liked them first!
24 7.69. Life Won't Wait - Rancid
The only rancid album I can still listen to front to back.
19 6.611. Xtort - Kmfdm
Pretty sure I carved most of the lyrics to "Dogma" into my english class desk.
333 7.412. 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.
44 6.814. Version 2.0 - Garbage
Soundtrack to Carrie's car! I still love you Carrie!
1 1015. Strapped Live! - The Pietasters
Probably responsible for beginning my brief love affair with gin.
12 717. Question the Answers - The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
8 6.319. Hoss - Lagwagon
I always felt it was cooler to like Lagwagon than it was to like NOFX. Kinda still feel that way.
2 020. Very Emergency - Promise Ring
A quietly awesome album.
13 5.721. Stranger Than Fiction - Bad Religion
387 7.722. The Fragile - Nine Inch Nails
21 7.323. White Light, White Heat, White Trash - Social Distortion
Mike Ness is very nearly as good at being Johnny Cash as Johnny Cash.
1 025. Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash - The Replacements
Hometown heros. And plain fucking great.
