So I'm the only one with the ridiculous first album purchase? Thanks guys!

I thought some more about this, and it turns out the music I've bought physically is The Knife and a BUNCH of weird Russian music bought in Ukraine and Latvia. Most of them bought because there was a funky guy on the case.







^That guy has the best song ever. I have no idea what it's about, but a Russian speaking guy I know translated the title of the song to Green Eyed Taxi.

Then:






My taste in music is a bit different now... Also, I own nearly 300 physical CDs and I'm not gonna stop any time soon. There's more to an album than just the music, and unless I own all of it I don't feel like I really own it.

Yeah I'm kind of a collector, I own around 1,000 CDs. No smurfs though, sadly.

I convinced my parents to get me a New Kids on the Block cassette in first grade. I don't remember which one, but it had "Hangin' Tough" I think? I didn't ever listen to it, I just wanted to be able to say I had it at school.

My second purchase was Yo La Tengo - I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One in 1997.

Pretty sure it was Big Shiny Tunes 2, which for those of you who aren't Canadian is a compilation of MuchMusic's (Canadian MTV) big hits of the year. To make Andrew feel better, it had Smash Mouth's "Walking on the Sun" on it.

I'm jealous that Lekkit discovered the Knife so early. Great album, but I'm not from Europe where the Knife is a bigger deal, so I guess my tastes had different things to shape it, like Our Lady Peace and the Matthew Good Band (pretty sure those were the next couple of albums I owned).

Yes! I can't remember which one of those I listened to most but Punk-O-Ramas introduced me to Rancid, Dropkick Murphys, H2O, Agnostic Front, Voodoo Glow Skulls, The Cramps... that was a good time in my life.

i would add bad religion, the bouncing souls, nofx, and osker to that! but otherwise i agree entirely. this series was definitely influential. the $4-$5 price point certainly helped, especially for someone right about the age of high school freshman.

Of course the Bouncing Souls and NOFX, though I never got too into Osker. How I Spent My Summer Vacation and Punk in Drublic are classics! Did you ever get into the Give Em the Boot comps? Hellcat actually had ska bands like The Slackers and The Pietasters, who I used to play drums for.

I remember sitting in my middle school cafeteria with my "punk" friends and seeing the cover to Punk-O-Rama 4 (the one with the kid with the black eye) and thinking "holy shit this punk thing is serious!"

the bouncing souls were definitely a favorite. i'm technically a jersey boy and bouncing souls and bigwig were really big in our circle back then.

it looks like i've got 3 and 6. i can't say i've listened to them much at all though. most of the songs that look even vaguely familiar are from tim armstrong in some form. did you drum for both? i believe slackers are playing at fest this year so there is a chance so there is a chance i might see them.

Never played with The Slackers but I almost did! I kinda know all those guys although most of them don't remember me even after meeting me over and over again.

If you're going to Fest that must mean you live in FL? Or on the east coast somewhere?

Cool man I've never been but I'm not so much into punk anymore, or at least what passes for punk these days. The Pietasters got offered to play The Fest two years ago and the guys in the band turned it down. They also turned down tours with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and DKM. So frustrating. I'm doing a long tour at the end of the year playing ska/reggae. I'll let you know if we're playing upstate.

I think my first CD purchase was More ABBA Gold. Make of that what you will.

For a long time, I just absorbed what my older brother listened to. His first CD, which he received as a gift, was Metallica's S&M album. That may have set the direction of our musical taste for the rest of our Lives.

The first (edit: and probably last) music CD I decided to get on my own was Deftones' White Pony album. I'd say that album is too depressing for it's own good, even at that time.

Young Guns II soundtrack was my first CD.  Had Blaze of Glory by Bon Jovi on it.

I don't know what my first cassette was.  Probably old country, like George Jones.

Beastie Boys - License to Ill

on cassette

because they didn't make CDs back then.

Actually, I would get $2 for cleaning my room and we would go to Wal-Mart (back when Wal-Mart was not the corporate monolith it is today and everything in the store was domestically produced) and I would buy a 45rpm single/b-side. No idea what I got first in that. I recall getting Queen - We will rock you with Bohemian Rhapsody B-side and David Lee Roth - Bright Lights City Lights and Pat Benatar - Hit me With your Best Shot.
