Your Teenage Years Music

What music got you through your teenage years? I got into a lot of heavy stuff, like Metallica, Slayer, Napalm Death etc. I had a lot of anger and frustration inside me at the time, and this music seemed to help me. I actually used to fall asleep many nights listening to this one:



These days I listen to all sorts of stuff, but I still have nostalgia for a bit of metal. 'Bang that head that doesn't bang'.

This is a great question. I was a prog kid. I had no anger to manage, because I was raised wrong, with only a mom, no father and no siblings. All my anger was self-directed and I'm not sure where it went. I latched onto Genesis and Yes and that was the end of it.

I would say Rush was the most metal I got, except for a small streak of early Judas Priest. And I liked Pat Travers, because he had a phenomenal rhythm section back in the day.

The hardest stuff I listen to now is Killing Joke. Semi-industrial metal

I was by no means a happy kid, a brooder I guess. Molly Hatchet: Flirtin with Disaster was the soundtrack of under-age drinking. Blizzard of Oz and Back in Black got me through senior year.

My teenage soundtrack was definitely AC/DC, KISS, and Ozzy.

so, my teen years were from 83 to 89. In the early teens, Motley Crue, Black Sabbath, Kiss.... then it was Zeppelin, Hendrix and Floyd as I learned to play guitar.... later teens were more varied... I got into some sad stuff like the Cure, and happy stuff like The Grateful Dead. But Zeppelin was always my jam. Still is, along with Tool.

AM radio dominated my early teens, so pop music, Motown. The Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind, and Fire, The Beach Boys. I *found* a copy of Aqualung by Jethro Tull. That led to Queen, Jesus Christ Superstar soundtrack, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.

What a mix.

Junior High it would have been New Order, Depeche Mode, The Cure. That type of thing.

Pink Floyd, etc. The usual sorry-assed 70s/80s "rock".

I was young and didn't know any better.
