Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    No Doubt - Tragic Kingdom.

    I bought it a few months ago after having not heard it for something like 9 years.

    Oh god, such a good CD.
    I was just talking about how Jewel's Pieces of You was the 2nd album I ever bought.

    Tragic Kingdom was the first album I ever bought. We only had a CD player in the living room, I sat in the living room forever listening to that.

    My first too.

    I bought it for a trip My dad, sister and I took to the grand canyon. I listened to that thing 1 to last song at least 50 times by the time the trip was over.

    My first CD ever was a soundtrack of Rent that a girl gave me because she liked me. I hate Rent, but it was still very sweet.

    Then it was a four disk techno set my brother thought I would like. I didn't.

    Everytime I hear Pardon me I think of camping Emperor Crush for his enchanted ringmail.
    Incubus' SCIENCE album reminds me of waiting for the bus to come in the morning in 10th grade. Me and my friends took our CD players and CDs EVERYWHERE.

    I remember listening to SCIENCE a lot before school and then in some classes I'd turn on the CD player real low, leave it in my backpack and then lay my head down on the backpack to listen to it.

    BSB > NSYNC

    Hell fucking yes.
    N'SYNC were a cheap knockoff of BSB who came about only because BSB were starting to think for themselves instead of putting out every single sugar coated ballade written for them.


    S'why they're still around today.

    I really like Queen. I had the classic hits part 1, and I finally just got the part 2 CD the other day.


    Its not really as good as the first CD, though. "Don't Stop Me Now" and "Break Free" take the cake. "Bohemian Rhapsody" is good and all, but it can't compensate for the lack of good songs.

    I only have Britney Spears and Backstreet Boys CDs.

    When I really got into music we had already gotten things like Napster.
    When my friend told me about Napster, the first thing we thought was, "Awesome we can download the Bum Bum Song!" Since you obviously couldn't find it in stores at the time.

    This is funnier than it should be

    My first CD was something like Chipmunks Sing Country Classics. I was about 8 or so, must've liked the CD cover or something. I think I listened to it once.

    I didn't really listen to much music until high school, where I mostly listened to the Clash, Talking Heads, Sonic Youth, Ramones and Shonen Knife.

    I remember my first middle school dance, and Bush's Comedown came on, and everyone started moshing and jumping up and down like idiots, and it was a great time to be alive.

    Also, I remember skanking in a few dances. Damn you Mighty mighty Bosstones!

    I'm young enough to remember the Bosstones but old enough that I realized they weren't really that good.

    The first show I went to was Built to Spill at the now-defunct RKCNDY

    I've seen 'em a million times since then, including shows at the now-very-recently-defunct Crocodile Cafe

    Fuck, thinking of nostalgia bands makes me think of how awesome this city used to be
