Recently inspired by an NME post that had their staff discuss what the first albums they every bought were, I thought it would be interesting to figure out what the WKNC kids had first picked up. After a bit of work this is what they sent me!
Spice Girls- Spice
DJ Elly May
Natalie Merchant- Tigerlily
The first album I ever bought with my own money was Natalie Merchant’s ‘Tigerlily.’ Laugh if you dare.
Billy Ray Cyrus- Some Gave All
Back in 1992 or 1993, before most of the staff had started kindergarten, a young Jamie Lynn saved up her allowance to purchase a CD player and one CD to go with it: Billy Ray Cyrus’s “Some Gave All,” featuring the hit single “Achy Breaky Heart.”
Queens of the Stone Age- Songs for the Deaf
From Walmart aw yea.
System of a Down- Toxicity
Real original, I know.
Run-D.M.C.- Raising Hell
Michael Jackson- Thriller
I used to dance my ass off to some Thriller, still do when given the opportunity.
Franz Ferdinand- Franz Ferdinand
Led Zeppelin- Best of Led Zeppelin
Still listen to it once a month or more.
The Smashing Pumpkins- Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness
The Voice of Reason
Sum 41- All Killer, No Filler
I bought Sum 41′s All Killer No Filler. Embarrassing now, totally radical back then.
Baha Men- Who Let the Dogs Out
I saved up my lunch money to buy this.
Metallica- Master of Puppets
Ray Parker Jr.- Ghostbusters
It was the 45 single. I was 6 years old and I believe I used my birthday money.
DJ Shorty Shorts
Dashboard Confessional- A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar
Smash Mouth- Astro Lounge
Spin Doctors- Pocket Full of Kryptonite
