Your First Rock Album/s?

My first one was Red Rocks, I discovered the tape in an old case under my parents bed. Also around that time I obtained Stone Temple Pilots' "Purple", The Offspring's album with the skeleton on the front, and Green Day Dookie. My first U2 obsession was short in coming.

I kinda adopted my parents records. They had a turntable back then and I used to flick through until something sounded familiar lol. Then I got my own interests and I believe my first ever was Dire Straits Alchemy, but it wasn't a new release.

My very first record (tape) was Michael Jackson's "Thriller", but seeing as though that's not really rock... we must fast foward a bit... First rock eh?

It was either Aerosmith's "Greatest Hits"

or Whitesnake's "Slide It In"

My first album ever was "Like a Virgin" by Madonna. But my first rock album was soon to follow:

Slippery When Wet by Bon Jovi!

To my own credit, though, my uncle lived with us when I was in kindergarten and I would always listen to his Blondie 8-tracks, and later, his U2 War tape.

First one I bought with my own money was The Eagles' Hotel California, and I'm dating myself by saying that yes, it was current at the time. <g>

It was probably something by Nelson, Warrant, Motley Crue or Guns 'n Roses.

I know I had stuff before this but I think I will say my first ever rock album was Girls, Girls, Girls by Motley Crue when I was 10 or 11. I saw Wild Side on MTV and then I begged my mom to take me to Target to get the tape!

My Dad has this CD he would always play. This band kept singing "IN THE NAME OF LOVE.........WHAT MORE IN THE NAME OF LOVE". It was Rattle and Hum. So one day, I put it in and listened to it by myself. This is kinda bad, but the first U2 song that I remember liking was "Helter Skelter." I later found out it was a Beatles song. I was like 13 or something.....gimme a break! But I soon fell in love with most of that album. Still don't give Freedom for my people a listen.......
