Holy shit, I love most of these, too. Yellowcard is the only one on that list that I won't go anywhere near. Might switch STWHA with Four Minute Mile, but whatever, they're both great.

Nice selection. I had some UVS come up on shuffle the other day. I forgot how much I liked Kurt's stuff.

Kurt hates "Joy" but I think it's a fantastic album. I really didn't like "Rev".

With over 17,000 songs on my iPod (yes, I still own one) this is crazy impossible. I just couldn't get down to five albums. But here's a good start:

If I Should Fall From Grace with God - Pogues
Don't Break the Oath - Mercyful Fate
Rust in Peace / Peace Sells - Megadeth (tie)
By the Grace of God - Hellacopters (two God albums on one list? weird)
High 'N Dry - Def Leppard
The Decline - NOFX
Killers - Iron Maiden
Cure for Pain - Morphine
Let's Face It - Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Black Sabbath

I'm sure that there are better albums, but I didn't want to peek at my collection to be sure.

We always thought you were either a vampire or Satanist. Now I know you're a Satanist.

I know. Both times I typed the word "God" my fingers were smoking.

And clearly the virgin sacrifices are working, since my Thank You percentage is higher than yours. Mighty win for the Dark Lord!

(By Dark Lord I mean Howie Mandel. I hope that's clear.)

Yellowcard is definitely the most mainstream one on the list. It was tempting to put a different choice but I try to be 100% honest with my love for them. Love Four Minute Mile as well. I've actually been pretty happy with everything TGUK have released.

Get Up Kids seem to cursed with their stuff not being understood upon release. I remember when STWHA came out and everyone was bent out of shape since it was so polished and totally not Four Minute Mile, and look at it now. I think it took 8 years for a lot of people to get On A Wire.

90s emo in general is pretty much my favorite music in general. Diary by SDRE and Pinketron by Weezer and that first wave of bands those records inspired will never get old to my ears.

I put Texas Is the Reason on this morning. So great.

Definitely agree with you about TGUK. Another similar situation is Saves the Day's In Reverie. Everyone HATED that album when it came out, now any hipster my age that hated it at the time think's it's their best album.

I'm also a 90's emo guy. Basically anything Vagrant records put out I will love or give a serious chance. From there I've been going backwards to American Football, At the Drive In, Mineral etc. Still getting into Sunny Day. Also a big Weezer fan like you. Love their new album but I've also enjoyed most of their post-Pinkerton stuff to some degree.

I have played the first three albums on this list so many times that I had to replace them due to wear and tear:

1. Puzzle, by dada - Amazing first album by a band that never quite received the popularity that they deserved. Three guys, generating a lot of sound, plus they could all sing well. The music was rock, veering between indie, pop, and blues influences. Eleven good songs plus one clunker that was slow and dreary. One song, Dizz Knee Land, enjoyed a second run of minor popularity due to the line "I just flipped off President George." A lot of their music has a certain quality to it that suggests small town guys who moved to California as soon as possible, seeking a California Dream.

2. The K&D Sessions, by Kruder & Dorfmeister - Deep, complex electronica drawing on many influences, especially jazz, samba, bossa nova, etc. It's a double album set loaded with good sounds. There is maybe one weak track featuring repetitive vocals and not much of a melody. Some of the songs are remixes of work by other bands, like Depeche Mode or Lamb, but these remixes are brilliant and better than the source material. I can't possibly choose a best track, but Sofa Rockers is a good starting point, especially if you are getting high.

3. I Wanna See You Bellydance, by the Red Elvises - Despite the band name, the Red Elvises primarily deliver surf rock with an eastern European flair. Fun, funny, and great in concert. My favorite track is 200 Flying Girls.

4. The West is the Future, by Kid Dakota - Laid-back but moody, this album captures the discontent simmering beneath the surface of winter in the upper Midwest. Song after song rewards the listener with compelling melodies and solid guitar work. Ten Thousand Lakes is the standout single, but Pine Ridge is the perfect soundtrack if you're reading the Scalped series from Vertigo Comics.

5. tie: Dummy, by Portishead or Protection, by Massive Attack. These two albums are the fundamental, essential trip hop albums, and trip hop is one of my favorite genres. Both albums exude potent levels of mystery, cool and sexiness.
