So many.....
  1. Kiss: Destroyer
    I was 10 years old in 1976. What do you expect?
  2. The Ramones: The Ramones
    Like millions of others, these four magnificent dopes changed my life. Never heard rock and roll more vital before or since
  3. The Cars: The Cars
    I support any presidential candidate who pledged to change the national anthem to "Just What I Needed"
  4. The Clash: London Calling
    They were called "The Only Band That Matters." Talk about truth in advertising.
  5. Van Halen: Van Halen
    "You know I been to the edge. Then I stood and looked down. You know I lost a lot of friends there baby. I got no time to mess around"
  6. The Replacements: Tim
    My favorite album from my favorite band. Rough around the edges yet thoughtful. Sarcastically smart-assed but wearing their hearts in their sleeves. In other words, just like me when I first heard them
  7. REM: Murmur
    "What's he sayin'?" Every college kid in 1984
  8. Public Enemy: It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back
    My hip-hop gateway drug
  9. De La Soul: 3 Feet High and Rising
    Hip Hop with real wit. And grooves
  10. Liz Phair: Exile in Guyville
    She told truths I needed to hear when I needed to hear them-with guitars!
