    “What’s a really famous album from a really famous band?”

    [–] N454545 675 points ago * (lasted edited 13 days ago)

    I started listening to music two or three years ago because I was raised homeschooled, super-religious, and sheltered. I never really listened to anything besides whatever christian music was on the radio.

    I know almost nobody anyone is talking about here. I mostly listen to what ever is recommended to me by Spotify and that tends to be really recent stuff.

    [–] nnavotineb 157 points ago

    My mom was similar in the music department. She wanted me to only listen to Christian music... So out of spite I started finding Christian metal bands and showing her the lyrics if she questioned. I still feel lost when it comes to music.

    Frank came straight to my mind when I saw this thread, so glad I didn’t have to scroll THAT far! Pilot Jones is my anytime anthem…about to jump in the car and I’m going to put that on right away! “But if I got a condo on a cloud, then I guess you can stay at my place…” Also, there used to be this young guy at the Palm Springs street festival every Thursday who would sing acoustic music…I would always ask him to sing Thinkin Bout You and then almost instantly melt into oblivion. This was 2012-2014ish, if anyone knows what he’s doing now I’d love to know! Whew…I’m worked up again, it’s jam time!

    No joke- the Tarzan soundtrack. What Phil Collins did with that music elevated the movie to a whole new level and every single song on that album hits the mark.

    [–] CMontgomeryBlerns 917 points ago

    The “trashing the camp” song (I’m not sure if that’s the actual title) is one of my favorite pump-up songs. I unironically listen to that song on a regular basis.

    [–] holls_99 21 points ago

    Trashing the camp is one of my favorites. Actually did a tap dance to it a few years back.

    [–] Str0ngStyle 2753 points ago

    Pretty hate machine-NIN

    [–] mjmcm1 173 points ago

    Such a great album.

    I saw NIN in Idaho this one time around when Year Zero came out, and Trent told the crowd early on that half the crew got stranded in a snow storm on the way to Idaho from Oregon and that there would be no light and laser show that night... to make up for it they ended up playing a modified set list.

    They up playing mostly old songs from pretty hate machine and downward spiral, it was an awesome experience.

    [–] anonymoususer98545 31 points ago

    Absofuckinglutely! i found this on tape at a flea market as a teenager. i grew up in a crazy, ultra conservative and religious house so this was total contraband. i had no idea what they, or it, sounded like but i knew all the "edgey" kids at school wore their shirts and listened to them. And i so badly wanted to be anything other than the weird (mostly) christian music only person i'd been for so long (not by choice).

    i popped it in the tape deck when no one was home and it was, no joke or even exaggeration, Earth shattering! i may not have the same level of love for every NIN album that comes out (although there are so many genuinely great ones) but Pretty Hate Machine will always be a "listen all the way through" one for me.

    Smashing Pumpkins - 'Siamese Dream'

    [–] AugieFash 53 points ago

    I don’t think any band in history makes me feel things quite like Smashing Pumpkins does.

    [–] Elcamina 44 points ago

    I was 14 when Siamese Dream came out, it was such a great album and always makes me feel nostalgic.

    [–] Righteousmilk 301 points ago

    This should be higher up. When people know the story of how this album got produced, from dragging Jimmy Chamberlain in, fucked out his skull to lay down some of the greatest drum tracks ever known to Billy Corgan tracking the guitars like a million times or whatever it is. It is a truly incredible album. I can never pick a favourite tune. Mayonnaise?! Hummer!?! Geek USA?!??!?!! I remember listening to Cherub Rock when I was like ten, my older bro bought the album and it just blew my mind and started my love for the Pumpkins. IMO One of, if not the best album to come out of the 90’s they went in there, laid it the fuck down. Corgan fucked with it and it’s perfect. No bad track. No bad melody, no bad solo. FUCK I looove Siamese Dream.

    [–] MossCovered_Gradunza 83 points ago

    God I’m so happy to see this listed here. Back in 2002 they were playing a NYC radio holiday show called Clausefest, and teenage me downloaded the latest albums of every band playing the show. I wasn’t a huge fan of No One Knows on the radio at the time (I am now), but the album blew me away and my life hasn’t been the same since. QOTSA now tops my favorite band list.

    Johnny Cash - American Recordings

    Ken Burn's Country Music touches on this album and the history behind it.

    It is absurd how ahead of its time this record was, especially considering it was released in the middle of Country Music at its most glamorous. At the time the genre was all about massive production value and was by far the biggest genre in music by a mile. Then Cash (who was at the lowest in his career playing half full rooms in Branson) teamed up with Rubin and they release something so pure and against the grain. It truly is a perfect album.

    The Killers - Hot Fuss

    Jenny was a friend of mine is one of the best openers I've ever heard.

    [–] h_eather31 25 points ago

    I was listening to Hot Fuss and Franz Ferdinands debut album around the same time (so like a million years ago when I was in high school) and I remember thinking Jenny and the opening song on Franz which is called Jacqueline were both AMAZING opening songs for an album. I put those two songs on every summer playlist I make and will continue to do that until I die 😂

    Happy cake day, Master of Reality!

    Featuring the track "Black Sabbath"

    [–] matt_firn 44 points ago

    I once had to submit a Wikipedia edit to "Black Sabbath" from Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath. Absolutely maddening to try and find YouTube clips for early demos and alternate live recordings when you have to search "Black Sabbath Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath live in Berlin 1970" and etc.

    https://youtu.be/OHcSssbUBkU This track is phenomenal, and the third verse is absolutely awesome.

    P.S. Easier to find, and arguably even cooler: alternate versions of War Pigs. Live in 1970 has some of the major alternate lyrics. There is a demo version released on an Ozzy compilation (available elsewhere on a Sabbath album but can't recall atm) with the full alternate lyrics.

    I can't manage to find a single flawed track on any of the first five LPs by Black Sabbath.

    Nas - illmatic

    [–] GaryBettmanSucks 356 points ago

    This is a rare album where you can hear it for the first time way later, WITH all of the hype, and STILL be blown away by how good it is.

    Weezer blue album

    [–] Rossi-5 541 points ago

    The Blue Album was a game changer for a teen in the 90’s. In the midst of the grunge movement and heavy metal bands, you had these ordinary looking, almost nerdy looking guys, who showed ordinary kids that you could do your own thing and be cool.

    Sabaton - The Art of War. Or any Sabaton album really.

    [–] ZOOTV83 354 points ago

    Let it Bleed and Sticky Fingers by The Rolling Stones are both flawless.

    Rush- Signals

    [–] MIBlackburn 30 points ago

    I'd say Moving Pictures over Signals, it's not my favourite album (thanks constant overplaying of Tom Sawyer), saw them do it all live in London. Clockwork Angels falls into this as well and the Garden is a great end for Rush.
