College Music

published on February 19, 2015

College MusicToday I remembered a band (Lit) that I first heard when I was in college between 2000-2002, and this inspired me to take a trip down memory lane.

Back then I didn’t really own many CDs (I was still using cassette tapes).

It was during this time that I started to fine-tune my music tastes, preferring Rock, Metal and Punk over the Pop and Dance music I favoured during my secondary school years.

The group of people that I was socialising with at college had different tastes to the group of friends I had grown up with. My college friends were always happy to share their CDs and introduce me to new/old bands I had not heard of.

I remember spending most of my time and money in shops like HMV and MVC (both went into administration, however HMV managed to claw its way out.)

Some of the albums I remember owning during my college years:

  • Aerosmith – O, Yeah! Ultimate Aerosmith Hits
  • Bif Naked – Purge
  • Blink 182 – Enema Of The State
  • Blink 182 – Take Of Your Shirt And Pants
  • Guns N’ Roses – Greatest Hits
  • Linkin Park – Hybrid Theory
  • Lit – A Place In The Sun
  • Lit – Atomic
  • Marilyn Manson – A Portrait Of An American Family
  • Marilyn Manson – Holy Wood
  • Muse – Origin Of Symmetry
  • Muse – Showbiz
  • Queen – Greatest Hits I, II & III
  • Sum 41 – All Killer, No Filler
  • Mission Impossible II OST
  • The Martix OST

I never did build up an impressive CD collection. I quickly moved to the digital format of Apple’s iTunes, and I’ve now started collecting vinyl records – check out my ever-growing LP hoard.
