No cool points for my picks:

First Cassettes:
Best of Jan and Dean (I was 6)
Bruce Springsteen Born in the USA (I was 8)
Winger- I don't even remember which one (I was 9)

And Depeche Mode Violator- still one of my top 5 albums. That's right, bitches.

First CD:
Oasis Definitely Maybe- no clue what happened to it, but I'd probably pull it out once in a while if I still had it.

First record: Bought from Sears if I remember correctly - Thriller, M. Jackson.

First cassette: Bought at Turtles records, Gainesville, FL - INXS Kick. Damn, how cool was I?

First CD: Bought at Target, Joshua Tree - U2.

How funny is that, I can actually remember where I got them.. From there on, it's all a mystery. Hell, I just came across a Busta Rhymes CD the other day that I have NO idea how I got.

One more day to revolution,
We will nip it in the bud!
I will join these little schoolboys,
They will wet themselves with blood!


Come on! That's a dope jam, yo.

First 45 I bought was the "Convoy" single. It had a really crapy B-side that I can't remember.

First LP I bought with my own money was some kind of Sci-Fi soundtrack comp. It had "Star Wars" across the top of it and a drawing of two people in space suits dancing on the jacket. That's all I cared about. That record had the Star Wars theme, Star Trek Them and the old Superman theme. Not the John Williams one, the old one from the 1950s.

I think the first REAL album I bought was Fleetwood Mac's Rumors. I thought Stevie Nicks was a babe. I only liked them for a year. After that I decided that Heart was way more cool.

I lent it to a friend back when I was in college. And haven't seen it since.

Me too. Actually it was given to me many years after release. "Star Wars and Other Galactic Funk" by Meco. One side was the Star Wars themes done to disco. And the other side consisted of three songs. "Other", "Galactic", and "Funk." No shit.

First casette: Thriller

First cd: umm, also a gift. Firehouse's self-titled debut. shudder...

Yeah! That was the album. Later I realized that it wasn't the "real" Star Wars theme and I got really mad. But, hey! I was 6 years old.

I not only had Thriller. In Jr High my grandma made me a sequined glove and I use to wear the fucking thing outside of the house. In Public!! With sleevless t-shirts and mirrored glasses. I was a damn mess. Thank god I found Heavy Metal in the 8th grade or I'd still be a pussie.
