I was a super- nerd when I was like about 10-12 years old..I hardly heard music (mostly it would be the radio shit). My Friend played this loud in his house, at first I was fucking scared when i listened to the intro, after a few plays more, I loved it!
I thought this was heavy metal!!
2. System of a Down - Chop Suey!
After hearing Linkin Park, I wanted moooaaaar, I wanted more Music more "Metal". Again my friend told me, "Listen to this! He sings very fast ". And the rest is history (cheesy, isn't it?)
3. Silversun Pickups - Rusted Wheel
Later, I got into a lot of rock music, I bought rock magazines like Rocksound, Big Cheese Magazine and others.. I read an album review of their album Swoon. They were given an 8/10. That didnt interest me.. Later I was TV and I saw that one channel VH1 had a scrolling tickr in the bottom of the screen…
