15 Albums

Taken from Facebook – I prefer to post things like this on the blog, not as FB notes.  So:

Think of 15 albums, CDs, LPs, that had such a profound effect on you they changed your life. Dug into your soul. Music that brought you to life when you heard it. Royally affected you, kicked you in the ass, literally socked you in the gut, is what I mean. Get the idea now? Good. Tag, you’re it!

Durango 95 – Durango 95
Clumsy – Our Lady Peace
Weeezer (Blue) – Weezer
Collateral Damage – Jim Page
Vein – The Kickass Martians
Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness – The Smashing Pumpkins
Dookie – Green Day
Yankee Hotel Foxtrot – Wilco
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
Punk in Drublic – NOFX
Goldfinger – Goldfinger
Hello Rockview – Less Than Jake
The Terror State – Anti-flag
The Lonesome Crowded West – Modest Mouse

Below the fold are the albums that didn’t make the cut; additionally, I should note that I limited bands to one album apiece on this list, and that I tried to only consider albums as a whole, not just albums with three songs that kicked my ass.
