I would go for TYPB if videos were allowed. The only film I've watched more than that was Up In Smoke! (both heavily influenced me )

If I had to pick a record I'd probably say Nevermind...

But I also really remember when I heard "Smells like teen Spirit" first time. It had pure energy that I hadnīt heard a long time. My brother bought Nevermind and I brought it to some our schoolīs party. Of course the most of the people didnīt understand it at all, but there were maybe three guys who went absolutely grazy about it and asked me whatīs this, itīs really great! Even that song has become some kind of Stairway to Heaven of grunge, I still remember that my first feeling always when I hear it. Later of course I met guys, who had been Nirvana-fans already in Bleach-time (you know there are always guys who heard great bands from their first demos, Metallica was playing in a very small Place in Finland after they had made Kill Em All, there were guys watching it, but not me).

I think those were great times, I think grunge was the last true youth movement. Year after hearing Smells like teen spirit like many other fans in Finland I went to see Nirvana in a Ruisrock-festival. It was a little bit disappointment to me, but I think I will remember it rest of my life.

Anyway Nirvana become a band almost everybody of my friends listened, SY was never as popular here. But even I liked Nirvana then and has liked it also later, it never became as important to me as SY.

About Nirvana & the Beatles, I have always thought Nevermind is kind of Beatles-album made in the nineties way.
Great post, i love a European perspective on nevermind

About music and coping mechanisms, I believe music is a coping mechanism in those who love music passionately. I can be of course wrong. I mean there are persons to whom this world is too much, kind of sensitive guys, who needs some art to survive. I spent some times alone when I was quite small and I think music become to me replacement of human relations in those situations. No-one of course did put me into room with a music, I think i just was interested about music myself. And because my parents had to be in the work (my mother was only few hours a day) and I enjoyed to be myself with the music, there were those moments. One of my longest friend from childhood has told me, that she asked me to go out but I had said "No, I just want to listen rock". I donīt remember it myself.

Anyway as music therapy view of this, I believe music can also prevent some people to face his problems. I mean music can be so big defense to person who has been in it most of his life.

But also, I think my life would have been really much worse without music! I think I have coped with really hard times with the help of great people & music.

Honestly...I would have to say Kill Yr Idols/Confusion is next. It's the 2nd album by SY I listened to. That CD totally changed the way I viewed music. I didn't know such sounds were possible with your standard rock outfit. ANyways...SY as a whole changed my whole view on life period....especially after reading Goodbye 20th Century. I mean...I guess SY came into my life at the right time. I listened to them at the start of high school and that time is a very influential period...we're all beginning to find ourselves....and SY really just told me, 'fuck it'.

Black Sabbath vol.4 is the first album I remember to listen, from cassette (before my brother bought vinyl player, we had cassette player). Of course didnīt really understand it that time, but I still remember the feelings it woke in me. Then there was period I thought Sabbath was boring. Then one of my friends recommend me Paranoid-album and so Sabbath became back to me and I still love those 6 first albums.

Nico-album & White light become important to me same time as Joy Division-albums. Really great music to the adolescent who just a little before has found punk.

Stooges came to me little bit late. I had heard Raw Power, but really didnīt first understand why people thought it was a great album. I think the sounds were the main reason (now I really love those sounds). I heard three cover-versions from the first Stooges album (Not Right, No Fun & Ann) and because I really liked them, I wanted to hear the originals. Then I finally heard first Stooges in one of my friend, he put it me into cassette and I become a big Stooges-fan!

Snowblind is fucking awesome. The song itself is so great that even that godawful System of a Down couldn't ruin it. Even their version had some of the haunting energy of the original.

I'm not a "Sabbath Guy" in any way, and I can get by with well put together playlists and "best of" collections for the most part, but Vol. 4 is an album I can't go without. It's their best as far as I'm concerned.

I think I like all those six first as much. Sabotage is also really great! Symptom of the Universe, Megalomania, Supertzar, Am I going Insane, really great classic Sabbath tunes! Hole in the sky has of course great riff, but I think in that song band started to go to the little bit boring direction. Of course there are some not so great songs also in the earlier albums.

But if I have to say my favourite of those I think itīs also Vol.4. Maybe just because it was my first Sabbath and also my first rock album I remember to listen.

About my parents, they introduced me only this:

About System of down, never really understand why people think itīs a great band. Itīs not bad band, but I think Nomeansno & Minutemen have done same thing a lot better.

Just listened their Snowblind-version, I think it`s horrible.

System of a Down is garbage, like any of those bands. Seriously. Why are we even talking about them here?

Anyhowz. I don't like the percussive hippy folk bit in Supernaut, it detracts from the riff-majestry. And FWIW Sepultura did a much better incorporation of that kind of stuff on Roots.

I like percussions in both. Sepultura`s version of the Symptom is also really great! Like the acoustic end of it!

Terre Thaemlitz - Couture Cosmetique

totally blew me away when I heard it for the first time. It's actually the record that encouraged me to make music, and more specifically, that kind of music that I do.
