Piffle. I started listening to Verdi and Puccini when I hit 40. Slowly appreciating Wagner.

This is not identical to Led Zeppelin etc of my teens.

Desolation Row
Great Gig In The Sky
Both set the foundation for my love of music when I was 13 or 14.

The King of Carrot Flowers introduced me to modern indie when I was 17 or so (late 90s).

Those always stand out in my mind as major songs in my life.

For the longest time before I began driving, I was stuck listening to an oldies station my mom would have in the car and I knew I wanted to listen to anything but that. Then one day, the neighbor had their radio on just loud enough for me to hear what was playing and it was country. I thought, 'hey, that sounds good' and began listening to that. I still listen to that today but with a dash of pop, rock or whatever happens to be on a different station.

My tastes have blanded as I've aged, still get hyped once in a while when a really good Industrial song hits me in a trailer or demo etc.  Google Music has also lulled me into listening to far more variety then I realize, once in a while I'm just walking along and go "Wait, is this Nickelback?  God damnit."  *Thumbs down*

I'll probably get some shiat for this, but listening to my first Christian Rock at a church youth function probably did it. It was Petra and Resurrection Band, both of which were 70's hard rock / arena rock style bands, a genre I still love. Although the quality was obviously much lower in most of Christian Rock back in the day, there were a few bands that would have held their own on the outside market even then.

I later added jazz to my musical horizons, mainly when I started playing bass guitar in my 30's, but I'd listened to jazz back in the early-mid teenage years then and that must have stuck.

I loved rock long before this (Slippery When Wet was my first cassette purchased with my own money), but seeing this at 15 pretty much ended it for me. Sure I've expanded my interests since then, but this was it.

I'm glad I didn't fall prey to science in this area. My tastes change depending on the season and I've continued to find new music to love through my entire life. I'm also glad I don't have the same embarrassing tastes I had as an early teen (a huge part of taste is what's available and I didn't have a cool older sibling or buddy who introduced me to the stuff I ended up liking when I was very young).

I also encounter people in here who I can't place an age on because their tastes and suggestions span genres and eras, so it looks like I'm not alone.

Atari Teenage Riot - Atari Teenage Riot
Youtube 6o5v2E20jKg


It was 1997. I was 13 or 14 or so. MTV was still occasionally showing music videos, sometimes making up a show to then show videos instead of just showing them for some reason. There was a show called 12 Angry Viewers where they basically had randos watch music videos then judge them. It was here that I first saw and heard Atari Teenage Riot by Atari Teenage Riot. It was pretty universally panned by the viewers on the show, I believe that one of them described it as "being hit over the head with the Atari Teenage Riot cult bat". I liked it in a way that could be best described as "aww yeah, now THIS is what I like". It was the first album I ever purchased. Through the course of highschool I think that I actually purchased every band and album that was released on the Digital Hardcore Recordings label. My tastes have expanded somewhat, but for a while that was pretty much all I listened to.

Helmet - Meantime

I was sifting my way through shiatty metal bands trying to find something.  And then I heard Helmet and realized I was searching for that heavy groove that virtually no one was doing at the time.  Pantera had a similar thing going, I guess.  But something just appealed to me about what looked like college students in jeans and t-shirts just dropping some crushing riffs out of nowhere.

Yeah, I don't think my tastes were frozen in my teens. I've explored new sounds pretty much my entire adult life, tho I have my lifetime "desert island" favorites.

My in-laws gave me a copy of "1,001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die" for my birthday. (The list runs from Brubeck to Sonic Youth to Sinatra to Pixies to the Residents, so it's actually reasonably comprehensive). I work at home from my computer, and I've been going through the list of releases on Spotify. Can't say I like everything on it, but I'm filling in a LOT of holes in my musical knowledge.

Stuck in the Middle with You - Steelers Wheels

Golden Years - David Bowie

But I don't think my musical awakening really happened until I was older, around 1983 when "New Wave" was the big thing. I think I listened to the radio practically 24/7 and this new thing called MTV. It was an exciting time.

I've fallen in love with certain bands/artists, like The Beatles because of my husband (then boyfriend), then I got seriously into Oingo Boingo, then Tool/A Perfect Circle, then Bowie again, and then Rammstein. Those are bands I love love love, but there's a ton more that I like.

Yep, my tastes still aren't frozen, some of my friends just scratch their heads at my music collection.
Before I was even a teen (and during those years) soul, r&b, funky jazz, the English invasion, the rise of great US artists in folk and rock were all happening. Many genres spun off of those things. My mom exposed me to classic singers like Sinatra and Mathis, my dad opera, artists from other countries, show tunes, and country western. It was decades until had an appreciation for country, though lol.
I still always seek out new music that is not "popular" or teen-like pop, though I like some of that every now and then.

same. Meantime blew my mind and still one of my favorite albums I listen to regularly. I still think the drums sound is the best I've ever heard. I cant say enough about that album. The other was public enemys fear of a black planet. Still remember the first time I heard that. Like a bomb went off in my brain.

The year I turned 13 - 1992 - was the year of Achy Breaky Heart. Fortunately I managed to dodge that bullet. U2 was huge around that time, so that decade really was dominated by bands like U2, REM, Radiohead and the Manic Street Preachers for me. Queen was also big among me and my peers even though Mercury had died in 1991. I dipped the slightest of toes into hiphop with the Beastie Boys later in the decade but strangely enough early on I was quite into house - like KLF's Last Train to Transcentral:

While I still enjoy Metallica, They Might Be Giants, and Rage Against the Machine ... I didn't "discover" Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin until my late teens and folk music in general wasn't even on my radar until my early-to-mid 20s. Also, I love me some dubstep which wasnt even a thing until I was near 30...

lindalouwho: It was decades until had an appreciation for country, though lol.


The best classic country (Hank Williams, Sr.; Johnny Cash; Hank Snow; Tex Ritter; Dolly Parton; Ferlin Husky; George Jones, etc. etc.) is on a par with the best of anything ever recorded.... It really sucks now, though. I mean, pretty much the entire genre has been crap for a long time. The last country artist I listened to with both ears with Dwight Yokum, and I lost track of him a while back, come to think of it.

OK, I've been a metalhead since there was heavy metal (songs like 'The Pusher' by Steppenwolf first caught my attenton back in the 1960's), and some of my friends of my age or older (i.e. pensioners) have never 'got it', but sometimes I come across a song which seems to meet with almost universal approval, at least amongst my pals.

This, I think, is one of those songs (I'm sure that it will be ripped to shreds by some farkers though for being 'a bit wussy')....
