U2 - Oh my gosh! Why didn't I discover them sooner!?!?!?!?! ( )

I got into them late 2005. (I think!)

Oh My Freakin' God!!!

I'm in LOVE!

I can't believe I never got into these guys before! I freakin' love them now (thanks to the "Where Should I Start" thread and a lot of suggestions from SadPunk ).

I've listened to everything except "Meds", that's next. But I went in order (Placebo, Without You I'm Nothing, Black Market Music, Sleeping With Ghosts) and I love every album, and the progression is just amazing!

I just heard Sleeping With Ghosts last night, so that one still has to sink in a bit more . . . but "Special Needs" . . . OMG!

I'm so late to this party, but I'm so glad I eventually arrived!!!

Just got into them, and I'm scratching my head why it took me so long.

Loudermilk. I only got to see them twice before they broke up in 2003. One of the best hard rock acts out there. Um, The Beatles. Radiohead (I got into them at Kid A). Muse (got into them at Absolution). Pearl Jam (got into them around the release of Lost Dogs). Starflyer 59 (got into them around 2002). Sunny Day Real Estate (got into them the year they broke up).

I HATE when that happens!

Steve Hewitt just left Placebo, so I guess you can say I'll never get to see them as they were for over 10 years . . . but hell, if Brian's still there, who really cares.

Brian Molko!

Bob Dylan has won me over recently. So has Willie Nelson. Country and folk music can be really awesome.

Oh, and Pulp still kicks copious amounts of ass, BTW. I wish to someday copulate to Different Class.

Magazine! So into Magazine right now.
I hate myself for not knowing the glory of Devoto earlier.

Super Furry Animals

Took me years, as I didn't get into them until early 2006. Two years later, and they're still one of my ten favorite bands of all time. I listen to them constantly, and have already spun Hey Venus! from back to front over thirty times.

The Clientele

I simply didn't like SFA all that much, but I for some reason straight-up didn't like The Clientele...until last year's jaw-droppingly great God Save The Clientele came out and forced me to reevaluate their back catalog. It's all great stuff, as it turns out!


I should've known (what with their being Welsh, and all) that they'd rock, but it wasn't until some advice from this very board that I finally gave them a serious listen and, big surprise, fucking loved them. God, what a great band--particularly McLusky Do Dallas. Fantastic stuff.

KC Accidental

Holy fuck, were these guys great! Wow! I don't know why it took so long, but it did, and their two EPs pretty much dominated the last four months of my musically joyous 2007.


Though his music has been nigh-unlistenable (with the occasional wondrous exception) for over five years, now, the dude's still another one of my ten favorite artists of all time. I didn't actually start enjoying him until Sea Change came out and forced to ask the question, "Is the guy actually [this] bad?" as I had for some reason, at that point, hated him since 1993--almost a decade of pure hatred!!! Unreal, right? Well, as it turns out, I was entirely wrong about his output, up until Sea Change. Dude used to be where the fuck it was at, no doubt.

Amy Millan's Honey From the Tombs

Boy, did I hate this record when it first came out, a while back. I got it for nothing, just to say that I had it, last March, and wound up loving it more than life, itself. Jesus, what a deep record!

The Jesus and Mary Chain's Psychocandy

This is one towards which I was simply "meh" for about ten years. Last summer, though, it just opened up and finally made a lot more sense. A spectacular record, and a hell of a lot better than The Magnetic Fields's latest misguided effort at approximating it, Distortion.

Also, a lot of people were talking about Pulp, earlier--well, I'd have to agree, as far as their singles go. I still think that their albums are beyond insufferable, but holy fucking shit, if "Disco 2000" isn't one of the best songs ever written, then I don't know what is.

Oh, and I honestly thought that Ghostface was an overrated MC, until Fishscale came out. No shit. Sad, isn't it?

For the longest time I couldn't get into My Bloody Valentine. Boy, when it finally kicked in I felt fucking terrific. I'd gotten into other Shoegaze bands earlier, so there wasn't really a novelty listening to Loveless for the first time. Now it's definitely one of my favourite albums, along with Isn't Anything.

Fitz: I feel like I've done a good deed.
