    Default Music from Your Teenage Years

    Jump on in and get past-blasted with some tunes that were all your teenage rage! Tell us what you were listening to when you were a teen and who or what brought your attention to a specific band or song. Do you still listen to the same music or has your taste changed drastically changed?

    I'll start to get the ball rolling. At age 13, I was primarily listening to Eminem. He had just released his Marshall Mathers LP at the time and it was everywhere. I still like this album though not on my playlist these days. Hard to pick a favourite track from it too, so I'll just go with the first one that comes to mind:



    Another album I was listening to a lot as a teen was Load by Metallica. Had it on cassette at the time, it's probablhy in a box somewhere in my childhood home so should probably get a copy on vinyl. Again, hard to pick a favourite track so here's one that speaks to me:



    Next up on the list is no other than His Infernal Majesty. Needless to say, I was mercilessly ridiculed for listening to H.I.M. because apparently they were "gay" or something. But whatever man, they just don't get it.



    At this point, the alcohol has kicked in so i can't be bothered to speak of the next artist so I'll just post a few more videos and possibly add more to my post a bit later. Enjoy:

    Hmm. I rather overly relied on one or two sources in my teenage years due to living in a place with no radio or TV access. Basically it was whatever my cousin could get me and my parents' taste in music. A few other things filtered in towards my late teens, but probably didn't get much rotation until my twenties. I guess it hasn't changed all that much since then, only become more diverse in terms of genre, language and background. There has also been better filling out of categories and adding more general stuff that I should have known: The Beatles, Madonna, Kylie Mingoue, Iggy and other artists that I would have heard on the radio but didn't and had no means to get hold of recordings. Life, gotta love the opportunity for exploration.

    So the following covers what was on high rotation between the ages of 13-17:
