Beatles - A Hard Days Night. Definitely ripped me away from the beach boys and a few other poppish type groups. Have never looked back.

I'm sure I sound like a broken record here, but:

Radiohead: OK Computer. I went to Europe with 35 other classmates while I was in high school, and I listened to this album on repeat, from waiting for the departure flight to waiting for my parents to pick me up from the airport. I guess you could say I had my "Auditory Awakening" at 17 years old, while walking around Pompeii checking out the people that were 'frozen' in ash when Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79AD. They've been my favorite band ever since and I would go to great lengths to see them perform. Most of their music is so complicated that you could listen to a song forever and still pick up new sounds/details/chords every single time. Sigh...

The first would have to be Meet the Beatles.
Everything that came after stemmed from that.
I was 12.

Then a few years later I found underground FM radio (sorry if you young kids don't know what that is. Really sorry) and the first two albums I heard were the first CCR and Steve Miller Band's Children of the Future.
I was 15.

Next, I discovered The Fillmore West.
It was "game over" after that.
I was 16.

no mocking. Back in the day, when the excesses of the hairspray bands were legendary, JBJ was the only one who repeatedly said that the audience was the only reason they got where they were. They always were respectful of that.

He also seems to be the only one who survived the 80's intact.

I disagree. I saw Brett Michaels on a Time Life music compilation infomercial. Let me just say for the record, it was straight up tragic.

When I was 8 I listened to Bohemian Rhapsody and Money. Thats when my outlook on music changed. Even then I never got into it because I didnt know the name of the song then. Then a few years later my uncle gave me his record player and records. Bat out of Hell was the first thing I listened to on it.
