Somebody commented, “​​Green Day —nimrod.”

Another one replied with another studio album of the same band, “Green Day—Dookie.”

“Slim Shady/Eminem double trouble: The Slim Shady LP and The Marshall Mathers LP. I was 11 when I convinced my older cousin to buy me these at a Best Buy that recently opened. I really shouldn’t have been listening to these lol,” said one.

Somebody commented, “Hanson—Middle of Nowhere. I was 8 in 1997.”

The second person replied, “Was that the album with mmm bop. I didn’t listen to Hanson but always thought that song was hard.”

8. Hybrid Theory, by Linkin Park

“Hybrid Theory – Linkin Park. Pretty sure the year it was released (2000), if not the year after. Before that were six CDs of LimeWire scrapings of whatever I heard on the radio. Pretty sure I knew only one song on Hybrid Theory when I bought it. Loved the whole [dang] album,” somebody said.

9. Homework, by Daft Punk

“Fugees The Score. I was only 8. I didn’t know what the [heck] they were rapping about but I loved the song Killing Me Softly. Back then, you had to buy the entire album to hear the one song you love,” somebody stated.

One person shared, “My first CD was not my choice. It and the CD player were a gift to me by my very religious biological father. DC Talk—Jesus Freak. To be fair, their music wasn’t half bad for a religious band.”

The second person replied, “Ha mine was DC Talks Free At Last. My parents bought me my first CD player for my birthday, and my aunt got me this to go along with it. At the time, I dug it.”

15. E. 1999 Eternal, by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony
