Today 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 never heard of.
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.
