Me too! I didn't have to steal it though. Dad gave it to me to listen to thinking I might like it. After that, every time Dad took me to the record store I'd ask him to buy me another Beatles' album.

the last albums i stole from my parents were zenyatta mondatta and ghost in the machine by the police. i purposely bought all those records but those. i have them all on cd, though.

i've also "borrowed" led zeppelin, david bowie, elton john, i can't think of what else.

i've raided their 7"s too and i found some roxy music, human league, and odd things like that i wasn't expecting to find.

I couldn't get into the Mormon Tabernacle Choir so there was no stealing from my mom.

However, Dad turned me on to Beethoven and Woody Guthrie.

^ Erm...yeah, that was about the level of timeliness my parents were at too. No Beethoven or Guthrie and most definitely not the MTC, but my Dad had a pretty big collection of Delta blues that we used to like to listen to...Mississippi John Hurt, Howlin' Wolf, Robert Johnson, Robert Wilkins, stuff like that. Then my mother had a much smaller collection of rembetika (Greco-Turkish hashish den "blues") 78s, which were actually our only "heirloom" possession. That stuff I thought was just weird when I was a kid, I love it now though. As far as "classic rock", that I only discovered through friends with younger parents or much older siblings.

My dad had the 45 of that, I swiped it often. In the sleeve was also hand-written lyrics that my dad had transcribed while listening.
"Knight in shining Zubaz."
