    What were you listening to when you were 13?


    This was the first band that truly got me into the whole metal thing (beyond radio metal bands lol). From there it has spiraled into a love of most metal subgenres.

        Verbal Assault, The Circle Jerks, Master of Puppets(Total game changer for me) and a whole bunch of hardcore and punk that I would never even consider popping in the player today.

        The '80s were a very expansive time in music.
        Look how hard my heart hurts.
        I need help, give me the works.

                  @ 13 a friend gave me Anthrax's (newly released) Among the Living because there was a song about Judge Dread. It's insane to think about where my enjoyment of that comic led me...anthrax covered Sabbath, Sabbath inspired me to get a guitar...college as a music major...drugs...manual labor job...etc.
                  This here is my music what I make with my mouth and instruments and such

                      Age 13 = 1986.

                      Dead Kennedys, Minor Threat, Black Flag, The Clash, The Sex Pistols, Ramones. Not coincidentally, this is the year I started playing the guitar.

                      The next year I would be introduced to Metallica and that would, as was said upthread, be a game changer.

                        Twelve was the big year for me:

                        • I got into Rush majorly and found all their records through Moving Pictures and then immediately picked up Signals when it came out
                        • My stepbrother had ended his life, and I received his Sabbath collection -- all the Ozzy-fronted albums. I nearly couldn't stop listening to them all the way through, back to back
                        • Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast came out
                        • MTV had only been out a year and was playing nonstop music videos, which a friend and I watched after stealing and drinking tiny bottles of airline liquor his mom had hidden away, then hanging out at the pool with some girls that seemed cute back then. I dug some of the new wave bands as well as occasional vids of some rock/metal bands
                        • Arcades were becoming a big thing, and the couple of local arcades nearly always had classic rock as well as newer rock playing, which is how I first heard some bands I like.
                        • There was no internet, and the best/newest home video game system at the time was Colecovision (which I ended up getting ). So in order to play a cool D&D type game, you actually had to get out some dice and a pencil and play D&D. But it was sometimes pretty cool to play different types of music while playing, and drawing at the time connected D&D themes with newer metal that was coming out, like the Number of the Beast cover.


                        14-18 is when I got into punk/hardcore/shred/thrash and ended up getting my first guitar. Good times.

                        • Like it should be dammit!

                          Let's see, 1993. I was listening to lots of Moody Blues (dad got us literal FRONT AND CENTER tickets to see them with the local orchestra). I signed up for BMG and got a bunch of crappy albums that I don't even remember but I did get ZZ Top's greatest hits and Steppenwolf's greatest hits.

                          But by the time I was 15 I didn't give a crap about any of the albums I'd already bought outside of the ones I just mentioned. My musical tastes really developed later in HS and onto college.

                            I remember getting a lot of tapes from some club and never paying for them before I even knew what a check or money order was. And I also only dug about 2-3 of the tapes, like some Zep or something.

                              Another odd ball that I discovered back then was the Red Hot Chili Peppers. My cousin had the Uplift Mofo Party Plan on cassette. I borrowed it and didn't quite understand what I was hearing. But fell in love with it anyway. My friends thought I was crazy. But I knew I was on to something. When Mothers Milk came out, everyone was all "Oh these guys are teh awsumm". I was like "Where were you four years ago losers?".
                              Look how hard my heart hurts.
                              I need help, give me the works.
