The "Oh My God, Why Didn't I Discover Them Sooner" Thread

I received:

Every White Stripes album
Beck's "Sea Change", "Guero", and "The Information"
The Flaming Lips' "The Soft Bulletin", "Yoshimi...", and "At War With the Mystics"
The Rolling Stones' "Beggars Banquet", "Let It Bleed", and "Sticky Fingers"
TV on the Radio's "Return to Cookie Mountain"
and The Clash's magnum opus "London Calling"

all in the past month from various friends.

Like a fat man after Thanksgiving, I'm still trying to digest all of this awesome.

Has anyone else had moments like these recently, and with which albums/bands?

Wilco. Pure and simple. Why didn't I listen to this band back in 2001? WTF indeed.

Radiohead. If only just a year sooner so I could have seen them on the HTTT Tour.

Ask me in a year or so. After becoming completely about U2, I need to find some more music. 2007 is the year of the phillyfan breaking out. Stay tuned.

"Dead Disco" kicks ass, but I had to listen to "Combat Baby" about 50+ times in class working next to girls who made that song into a music video.

It wasn't pleasant.

How about a song? The first time I heard Pulp's "Common People" was about 5 years after it came out, and my reaction was pretty much "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE????"
