First bands you remember listening to
First bands you remember listening to

What is one of the first bands you remember listening to? Mine is New Found Glory waaaay back in the day when I was 10 years old and in 5th grade. Now I am 17 and a senior in high school. I remember the day when I got the album Sticks And Stones. I asked for it for my birthday and my dad got it for me. I remember the days when someone would ask me what I want for my birthday or christmas and it would always be a list of cd's. I miss those days. Now everything is digital and very few even give a shit about cd's, much less even paying for music. I actually remember every time I bought a new NFG album. Going to Borders in 2004 right after Catalyst was released and paying close to $17 for that cd. Anticipating the final school bell to ring on March 10th of this year just so I could go to...[read more]

Nothing will ever beat the feeling of buying a physical album. I'm definitely with you there.

This is freaky. I started like New Found Glory too when I was about 12 (Catalyst was my favorite, Sticks and Stones is 2nd. I only had to pay 12 bucks or something for it though) and now I'm 17 and a Senior too. I'm really glad someone else my age agrees that physical copy is much better than digital. It's weird to be the only kid my age who buys full albums, never mind non-digital albums, for that experience of listening to it for the first time and having the CD in your hands. This kind of made my day a little.

I totally know what you mean being the only one our age buying physical copies of cd's. I don't think I can name anyone, that I know, that will go to a store to get music anymore.Sometimes I feel awkward going to Target, or even Hot Topic, and buying cd's but I still do because I just like the cd's better. Not to mention I think the sound quality is much better. I'm glad this kind of made your day!
