What was your favorite album in middle school? This was mine. I still like it a lot to this day.
made a chart of my favorites throughout ages 14-16-ish some time ago
I thought I was cool for listening to TMR when I was 15 even though I hated it. I still pretend it's a masterpiece so I can trick people into listening to it over and over until they 'get' it.
i wanted to get to know fringe and unusual areas of music but didnt really know where to look or what to look for, so i just browsed the "weird" tag on last.fm, thats also how i got into melvins and patton
Had a friend that I obsessed over this album with. I still cringe over how much I loved it.
Whoever says they never listened to this album at least once in Elementary/Middle school should not be trusted
I remember when it came out and being like dam this is fucking sick
>Christmas of 2004
>want this album and Nevermind
>Mom goes behind my back and gets my sister to ask her friend who "knew music" if it was appropriate
>my sister's friend was a christfag
>MFW I got neither
Either this or White Pony by Deftones. I still like them both.
Oh god that Disturbed album had some bad songs. Some of the songs aren't terrible though. Make Yourself is a fun as fuck album.
Good times. Haven't even listened to this album in years now.
QOTSA is great, Rated R was really great so is Songs for the deaf.
listened to this constantly on the walk to middle school, innocent times.
These and pic related.
(I still spin Idiot, Black Parade, and Page Avenue from time to time, and the gf is a former emo kid, so she enables me... it used to freak her the fuck out when I'd put on /mu/core shit after she jammed to Panic at the Fall Out Heights or whatever)
Kek a flood of nostalgia came to me as i remember this album. i wasn't even an edgy kid but i loved this shit
Honestly? Viva la Vida.
Still a really solid pop album, the closer is fucking amazing
I honestly never did
I was a massive contrarian faggot in middle school so I missed my prime pop punk phase
I must have listened to this every night before I went to bed for about 1 1/2-2 years on my shitty clock/radio/CD player.
Me too anon.
Yep. Sixth grade
This and the one before it. I still know all the lyrics to Three Cheers For Revenge
Seventh and Eighth grade
Pic is the album that helped me get into music in middle school. My mom loved Cake back in the day and she used to play this album all the time.
Yeah, the comedown afterwords was killer though. After I started buying CDs with my allowance money I wouldn't pick it back up for a really long time. Getting the internet eventually also helped but I was still solidly a Born-to-later until at least 19 or 20 years old.
Most of my friends that I had back then had no interest whatsoever in music so it kept my tastes really pristine.
Honestly I found the album in the related videos of some punk song. I didn't know it's racist but the music catchy.
I was a poorfag throughout schooling, so i never got many albums. I did borrow my buddys copy of american idiot and ripped it onto my OG xbox though. Listened to it all the time while playing American Wasteland. Good times honestly. That Xbox had a lot of tunes on it. Every playlist i made was a different genre.
I had a lot of hip-hop. The College Dropout and Late Registration, Slim Shady LP, Bone Thugs and Three 6 Mafia, Lil Jon, Mike Jones, Outkast who knows what else.
I had like a matchbox 20 album and Songs About Jane and god help me there may have been some Nickelback on there too. Also Significant Other by Limp Bizkit but i'm not as ashamed about that. A lot of my friends were metalheads but I just wasn't about it
>>61999708 here again
I should have said "never bought any albums," because I actually did end up borrowing a lot of cds from people and putting them on that xbox. I wish i knew what happened to it.
It's pretty bad looking back, but Children Of The Korn is so bad it's good.
No fucking question. I wouldn't touch this now with a '10 pole, but i saw them in concert and it was lit- so i guess i can't knock completely
>Viva La Vida and Parachutes
>Entire SOAD Discography
>RATM's main 3 albums
>Mars Ill/Deepspace 5 amongst other Christian rap acts because that's how I was raised dammit
Still like it and Sodom is still my favourite of the German big 3 Tbh
had these in rotation for my bus rides as well
I've yet to enjoy any other mix of rap, thrash metal, and hardcore punk influences to this day.
I still feel a little zap of energy that makes me want to jump up and down whenever I listen to this on my own.
I still listen to this from time to time t b h
Very comfy album for me.
This, Symbolic and Blackwater Park, Ghost Reveries and Watershed from Opeth were my favorite albums when I was in the 10th grade
I wish I got into Black Metal earlier t b h family.
same band, different album
>under great white northern lights
I am 100% convinced without that album, I'd have never gotten into the music I love now (extreme metal/noise). He's just fucking all over the place on that album. It's great.
I wasn't listening to albums at that point though
Black Metal or the albums I mentioned earlier?
I still bump it along with every other Jon Fratelli release besides the new lp
I wasn't really into music in middle-school.
9th grade is middleschool where I'm from and this was literally all I listened to. Sorry /mu/
This is what made me give a shit about music.
Yea, I was the Ska kid :(
Srsly tho, this is a kickass live album, thats absurdly well produced considering its a shitty ska band
I listened to lots of edm when I was in the 6th grade. deathcore and classic rock in the 7th grade. I discovered death grips and started listening to more underground and /mu/core music in the 8th grade.
This or 'Let It Enfold You'. I was that kid.
Listened to this a fair amount too.
Entrycore is still my favorite thing. This shit needs to grow on you but I also believe some of these albums just had more variety. I'm glad I've stopped feeling guilty about it some time ago.
I don't think I had anything special, the usual mix of
>The Wall and Dark Side of the Moon
>Gorillaz' s/t and Demon Days when ti came out
>Hybrid Theory and Reanimation various DEVO songs and such
The only really bad thing was how I conned myself into thinking pic related was good because I was a huge wrestlefag. On the other side, it's not an album, but I got all the Skarmageddon CDs and I still think that's overall some cool shit.
First albums of Korn and Slipknot were the best though. Same for Disturbed I think because the rest is mostly the same shit.
Also Sinner by Drowning Pool (Bodies may be the weakest song on the album btw) and White Pony by Deftones.
My brother was trying to get me into metal at the time, he introduced me to Mastodon, Baroness, Metallica, and Iron Maiden. Still is one of my favorites albums of all time. During high school, however I started listening to fedora tier bands like Dream Theater.
Middle school was a very confusing,sad, and edgy time for me. Looking back on it my tastes were really cringey. The only bands I listened to a lot back then that I still really like now are NIN and the Pixies and that's about it really.
I didn't listen to a lot of music in middle school but this is the closest thing I can remember liking at the time
Coheed's entire discog, still among my faves. Tons of imagery in the lyrics, I ate that shit up.
Along with SOAD, slipknot, Disturbed etc...
I remember when I had a talk about them in English class.. my teacher wrote down how I mispronounced "Halloween". I never told her I was right to say Helloween, though.
Note; English isn't my native language.
welp, forgot the cover.
Listened to these too.
Still in my top 3 today
I didn't listen to music until I was 15 or so, by then the whole idea of Green Day was already laughable, and had been for years. I've never heard the album and hopefully i never will
Pic related and this >>61999508
I still enjoy both albums, but the latter moreso.
Still maintain it is one of the best post-hardcore albums of the 2000s.
8th grade was fun
9th grade for me
I got called a faggot by a metallica fan in 9th grade for liking Crack the Skye
Megadeth and Marilyn Manson mainly.
