Music Of Your Youth

Recommended Posts

With other posts covering bands, concerts, and genre. It got me to thinking about the music I listened to in my youth. I grew up on a steady diet of Motley Crue, Ozzy (once skipped school and drove 7 hours to catch a concert), Iron Maiden, AC/DC, some Kiss (thought they were to mainstream to be s real devotee). When in Dad's truck it was George Jones, Marty Robbins, etc. Mom was main stream stuff, Michael Jackson,(Thriller). Occasional southern rock, Skynyrd etc.

I loved my teem years, admittedly there are allot of blank days weeks mixed with moments of lucidity. Obviously I my teen years encompass the 80's. Which I'm thankful for, I missed the whole disco scene crap. Now my kids from 28-10 like my music.

What groups define your childhood?

Bout the same as now I've always listend to rock though there was a time from like 15-19 I was big into street racing and car shows and what not I seemed to play a lot of techno crap as loud as I could so you heard and felt the bass thumping long before you seen me. Then I ditched the systems for weight reduction and you heard my exhaust long before you seen me lol.

Well, growing up in the 70´s doesn´t necessarily mean you had to listen to all that disco pseudomusic junk, there were some really good rock groups in the 70´s.

 

My first album I purchased:

I was 9 years old !  :eyebrows:

 

My teen years were the 80´s but my love with rock started in the 70´s.

Similar to Lucky Gia, with strong British Blues Rock leanings (Stones, Who, Animals, Yardbirds, Fleetwood Mac (Peter Green, NOT Stevie Nicks)..etc.)

 

Bos'n, I feel a little sorry for you and the rest of the Children of the '80's....I discount pretty much the entire decade, as far as rock goes, save for maybe half a dozen albums....Number of the Beast, Heaven and Hell, Screaming for Vengeance, Holy Diver, Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me....off the top of my head, that's about it...you can have the rest.

As a child of the '80s it was hair metal for me.  Although when my sister put her "Thriller" album on the turntable I didn't leave the room.......

I want to love you
(P.Y.T.)
Pretty young thing
You need some lovin'
(T.L.C.)
Tender lovin' care
And I'll take you there, girl, hoo!

How far back?  In my kiddie years it was The Ink Spots, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, etc.

 

In my high school years it was, Elvis, Ricky Nelson, The Platters, Danny and the Juniors, Frankie Avalon, The Everly Brothers, etc.

 

In my kiddie years records were 78 rpm, breakable plastic discs.  In my high school years the records were 45 rpm.  Smaller in diameter with a larger center hole.  Albums were 33 1/3 rpm.

 

I've seen the progression from eight track players, to cassettes, to CDs, finally arriving at todays electronic storage devices.  Back in the day, there were record players made specifically for cars.  The pickup arm was balanced and held down by a spring so that it would play even on rough roads.  Don't know how well it worked.  Never been in a car that had one.

When I was just starting to get in to music. The big things were gangster rap, boy bands, and Britteny spears. I could not stand gangster rap. As I was not a teenage girl. I could not stand the other stuff. So I started listing to a local Rock station. They got my hocked on AC/DC, Metallica, Ozzy, Kiss, and others. Then in comes my dads taste of music. He was a child of the 70s. So I got a lot of zeppelin, pink floyd, aerosmith, among others growing up. Today I mostly listen to rock or metal recorded from the 60's-mid 90's

I'm of Rhino's genre and grew up listening to much of the music he did, but Merle Haggard and other country greats were part of my menu as well.  Then came the sixties.  There were too many great bands to mention, but among them were ELO, CCR, the Eagles, the Stones, Fleetwood Mac, Three Dog Night, The Grateful Dead, and on and on.  To this day, my favorite group is the Eagles.

When I was 7 I discovered my dad's Black Sabbath and Alice Cooper albums. I listened to them until they were completely worn out. I also listened to alot of Southern Rock with my dad.

At the ripe old age of 9 I discovered Sound Garten, The Offspring, Anthrax,

and Metallica. The Offspring has remained one of my favorite bands of all time and has greatly influenced my musical taste as well as my outlook on life. It was that first introduction to punk rock that had me craving more. Green Day blew up around the same time as the Offspring. However, EVERYONE, listened to Green Day and I didn't become a fan of theirs until much later. The Offspring led me into punk and it's later subgenres. Much of which I still regularly listen to today. Especially, Ska, Gutter Punk, Hardcore, Gutter Ska, Crust, and Anarcho Punk. The ideals and views talked about in these forms of music are still very much part of my philosophy on life.

Metallica was a stepping stone or a gateway if you will. They expanded on the metal sound which I had grown up listening to. From there I branched into Black Metal, Death Metal, Grindcore, and what not. Eventually, I outgrew Metallica. Especially around the time of the Napster incident. Their sound changed and they just weren't loud enough anymore. As for metal I now mainly listen to Black metal, Death metal, and Heavy metal.

Pretty much the same for me...

In my teen years it was all Motown especially Smokey, Temps and 4 Tops..

Which is what I still listen to most.
