Mine:
Wannabe- Spice Girls
The Freshmen - The Verve Pipe (this made me cry! I loved it so...)
I Want You - Savage Garden
Truly Madly Deeply - Savage Garden

wtf? There are like 1000 songs I can remember the lyrics to when I hear the song. So what does that have to do with growing up with them?
Or do you have some sort of memory problem?

The sheer amount of punk coming off you scares my trendy asshole.

I grew up with a lot of cumbia and ranchera. \m/

The first bands I listened to where Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys. Then I got into the beatles and later Offspring.

EDIT: That's so sigged.

Tom Petty, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, Oasis and Guns 'n' Roses.
I grew up around alot of that, so the odd song here and there will bring a memory back.

Haha. My first cd was Smash Mouth's Astro Lounge. It was the only cd I had from like 3rd grade to about 7th or 8th grade. I haven't listened to it since, but I heard Come On Come On today and I forgot how catchy that album is. I might listen to the whole thing again tomorrow.

Haha almost the same exact story for me, except I had a couple Weird AL albums, Americana, and Conspiracy of One also.

More bands than songs actually. Guns n' Roses, Pearl Jam, ACDC, Roy Orbinson, lots lots more. See, my mom and dad were hippies. Although one song that really stands out is Paradise City.

And in respons to the above posts, I bought Astro Lounge last summer, really an awesome album. I started liking Smash Mouth about two years ago, it's very fun to listen to.

Deep Purple - Smoke on the Water

I don't know why, but me and my friends were obsessed with that song when we were 2-5 years old. I really have no idea why.
Since I'm born 1991, most of the music I heard was pop. Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Five, Britney Spears (remember her?!) etc. But then when I was.... 7, I started to listen to The Offspring, and stopped listening to other music (more or less).

edit: oh, and that Martin guy! "Du är så yeah, yeah, wow, wow".... "Jag vill inte motionera...". I wonder what happened to him.

I grew up listening to (and loving) Chris DeBurgh. YUCK!

Almost all of the Beatles' songs. Also we used to listen Manhattan Transfer in car while daddy was taking us to the kindergarden. And classical & jazz at home for all day. I had a great childhood.

And this thread is quite good, I think.

I think Fush You Mang is the best Smash Mouth album. I never could get into Astro Lounge

I never got that one. I got S/T and Get The Picture, but both were utterly terrible and I sold them. There were actually one or two songs on S/T I really enjoyed, but the rest of the album was pretty much crap.

They kinda changed their style after Fush You Mang

My mum was always (and I mean always) listening to Jeff Buckley, Placebo, Metallica, Live, Stone Temple Pilots and Nirvana, so I guess most of their songs.

Yeah, they had a good ska/punk vibe on that one. Their album the East Bay Sessions actually has some pretty hardcore sounding stuff.

Dude, Britney Spears and the Backstreet Boys weren't even around till you were 7 or 8.

I loved the spice girls! I remember hearing loads of queen, deep purple and bon jovi when I was growing up.

Im not saying anyone here is lying, but I find it quite amazing when people say they've been a fan of a band since they were little. Its cool if people liked a band that young and still do now though. Eveyone I know cringes about the crap they liked.

04-18-2006, 08:04 AM
I grew up with Radiohead, Offspring, Blur, Garbage and No Doubt.

And to be totally honest (other than the last one) I haven't grown out of my music tastes. I just like a wider variety of bands now :)

Maybe it sounds commonplacely but it were the offspring's songs " Blackball " and " Want you bad "

My parents used to (and still do) listen to Oasis, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Chris Rea, REM and various things like that.

The first stuff I was into was 99-00 era techno, then Ash (I must have played 1977 at least 100 times), and then my dad introduced me to the Offspring with Americana (I liked it because of the cover).

I used to like Linkin park years ago, and my dad would always put on beatles. So, heh Linkin park and the Beatles, interesting mix.

04-18-2006, 09:18 PM
My parents listened/listen to soft classic rock music... Steve Miller, Eagles, Tom Petty, Doobie Brothers, Cat Stevens, Rod Stewart, Billy Joel, y'know, stuff like that. And I love it.

But our favourite two cassette tapes as kids were Raffi and Rock '86. Rock '86 KICKED ASS! Also, we listened to Michael Jackson's "Dangerous" quite a bit. Oh, and Paula Abdul and Gloria Estefan. "Straight up baby tell me that you really wanna love me forever, oh oh oh!" Man, I should download some of that.

After that it was the stuff the kids in my class and I started to get into in grade 5/6 ish. Green Day, Offspring, Alanis (my first CD), Our Lady Peace, Silverchair, Hanson (best friend was in love), Weezer, basically whatever ended up on the earlier Big Shiny Tunes compilations.

Four words and a conjunction:

BON JOVI and PHIL COLLINS.

Yes, I grew up dorky. But I had the "Slippery When Wet" cassette from Bon Jovi, and Livin' on a Prayer was the first song I fell in love with ever. The Phil Collins was a live tape, I think...and it had You Can't Hurry Love and Sussudio on it, two songs I absolutely adore to this day.

This threads is fucking awesome <3.

Betty
04-18-2006, 09:29 PM
I almost mentionned Phil.

The Carousel Album (Live one) was my favourite. "You Can't Hurry Love" being my absolute favourite. We had it on cassette. Sussudio was ALSO on Rock '86.

I loved it so much I bought it again in CD form about 3-4 years ago. I also bought Iggy Pop at the same time. The clerk at the store made a comment about the odd combination.

instead of songs, i will mention artists, cause i don't feel like choosing songs.... and i have a long path to remember! *cough*old*cough*hahaha!
I'm 80's and early 90's too...

Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Cyndi Lauper, Ace of Base, Guns n' roses, Nirvana, Offspring, Pink Floyd, The Clash, REM, Madonna....


i listened more music in spanish, i won't mention any of them cause i don't think you'll know those bands

Pop/Rock basically. It was the radio that I grew up with. My favorite bands when I was young were Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Smash Mouth, and Sugar Ray.

All About Eve

Smash Mouth, and Sugar Ray.

God I loved them.

JohnnyNemesis

When The Morning Comes > Walking on the Sun (from the Fush Yu Mang album, which I don't own but remember the singles from)

RPM > Fly (I think this album is "Floored"...I don't own it)

Them are facts. I grew up loving the singles those folks came out with. Then Smash Mouth released "All Star" and five people ended up dead and hidden under my bed somehow. Something about uncontrollable rage on my part or something.

Whatever. It's not my fault, it's Smash Mouth's fault.

The main bulk of my musical childhood owes much to Queen Greatest Hits II.

However, there are certain songs that will always make me feel warm and fuzzy inside (bloody nostalgia). These are:
Aerosmith - Pink
Texas - Once In A Lifetime
George Michael - Fast Love
Republica - Ready To Go

Not great songs, but will always remind me of my kiddiehood.
