Allow me to start:
Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
Back around April this year, I was listening to some Korn on youtube and I was checking out the uploader's videos, when I came across the Eminem songs "Without Me" and "The Real Slim Shady" ( I heard parodies of the songs before and I heard that they were good songs ) so I listened....And I loved them! I was laughing my head off at the songs (specifically TRSS ) and when he said "it's the return of the "oh wait, no wait you're kidding, he didn't just say what I think he did, did he?" I was thinking exactly that. I decided to look up stuff about him and read the wikipedia article about the album mentioned above. Sounded like one heck of an album, so days later I decided to listen to it. I made a playlist on youtube with all of the songs and listened. It was one of the smartest decisions I've ever made. It changed my life, and I became obsessed with Slim Shady. The album is like a movie and I had so many thoughts changing through out, including:
dude, that was freaking hilarious!
Oh God, I can't believe he said that!
eww.....that's just...ewww ( Bizarre's verse in Amityville and Ken Kanniff skit specifically )
how does he do this?!
OH GOD HE'S GONNA KILL ME!
woah dude, he's pissed
Oh THAT song
Next thing you know, I would be singing the hooks and verses to friends, listening to his other CDs, even bleaching my hair. Anyways that album had a large impact on me.
Now post your album stories!
