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 not 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.
