I was pretty into Elliott Smith when I was in college, but I don't thiknk I can listen to him anymore. I just put on the compilation that KRS is putting out and it's unsettling listening to it.

Nirvana

 

I'd almost say rage against the machine too. last night I listened to some and remembered I would listen to them every day in high school. now it's like every few months.

Weirdly enough, Sufjan Stevens. It might just be because I was in 10th grade when Illinois dropped and he hasn't released anything since, but listening to that album now just sort of makes me cringe. Might be more at the idea of myself in 10th grade then the music, though. Ditto acts like The Decemberists and The New Pornographers.

*Hasn't released anything besides BQE and that EP, of course, but I have yet to listen to either.

I saw the Watch the Throne tour, and it was like seeing the moon landing.

Dude, you are like a baby. 10th Grade? I feel like Mike Old Man Burr when you're around.

Hmmm, good question.

 

Probably Rage Against The Machine. I was your typically angsty white teen and loved them. Now? Can't really relate/enjoy it as much.

Rage is a good one, I think, because a lot of us angry white teens were way into them. Though as a positive, I did have a Che Guevara and Zapata obsessions concurrently that seems just as dumb as Rage's music to me now. But I can't imagine anyone listening to Korn picked up a copy of the Motorcycle Diaries or read a 750 page book about the Mexican revolution because of anything that band said. 

 

The Black Keys are starting to be that for me a bit as well, since I was way into them circa 2005/6 and have seen them so many times (like six) that I feel like I'm missing something or something. It's obvious the band hasn't really changed. I have.

Exactly, mang.

 

I can see that with the Black Keys, though I'm still a fan.

 

Oh crap, right, another one for me is Eminem. Same thing as Rage, really.

Yeah, I mean, I still like the Keys (that new album was pretty good), but it doesn't get me excited like it used to. 

 

This is going to sound bad, probably, but another one for me is the Beatles. I had a Beatles phase long before anyone I knew--I learned how to use a turntable when I was six when I inherited my parents old Record player/tape player combo when they got their first CD stereo. My dad had a shitload of old records, but the Beatles were the only ones I listened to. I literally wore out that old double disc blue cover greatest hits package (Dig a Pony and Across the Universe were my jams) and basically only listened to them (and Ace of Base) from age 6 to about 10. That music was so important to me like 20 years ago, that it'll never really hit me the same way again. I feel like I don't need to even listen to the songs anymore; I just need to think about the Beatles and that's good enough for me.

Same as above for Led Zeppelin too, pretty much, except that was age 15-19.

Yeah, yr 19 and all, but sophomore year of high school was like 2001 for me, which makes you about 10 at the time. Meanwhile, when Burr was in high school, it was like 1956.

I really liked the Blue Album and Pinkerton. Then Weezer kept existing, and anything they did before is kinda dead to me now.

Weezer may be my least favorite band in the history of ever, but that's a whole other story.

 

There are only a handful of bands I listened to in HS and still like (Dead Kennedys being the only band I like for the same reasons I did when I was 15). I actually can't really listen to Jay-Z anymore. I remember Reasonable Doubt very well, and while I've liked some of his stuff since then, most of it makes me strangely sad.

 

While I love various stretches of Radiohead, some of the stuff I used to love is difficult for me to listen to now. Even OK Computer, which I hear the Yorke ego start dominating even though it's probably Radiohead's best album overall (excepting In Rainbows)
