My girlfriend just surprised me with Dax Riggs tickets. Who is Dax Riggs you might wonder??? Well Mr or Mrs uninformed, he was the singer of Acid Bath, Agents of Oblivion, and Deadboy and the Elephantmen. His solo stuff is genius and his voice is haunting.

I don't think my list would necessarily look anything like that, but I also couldn't argue with the majority of those albums being considered "quintessential" and musts for your music collection.
The Low End Theory and Illmatic would definitely make my list. A lot of albums on that list are no-brainers and would appear on pretty much any list, but some choices are just rubbish.
Think about Fuel also reminds me of pinhead gunpowder. I found them back in the day because I thought that Fuel's guitarist was a member, but it was a different Fuel (post-hardcare CA band, I think). Anyway, they bring back memories as well.

Listened to this song a few times and thought it reminded me of early Green Day.
That's because it basically was early Green Day that evolved into a sideproject for Billie Joe.
He had three drill sergeants, two of whom were sadists. Thank God it was the easygoing one who saw it. He was reading a magazine, when he slowly looked up and stared at Everman. Then the sergeant walked over, pointing to a page in the magazine. “Is this you?” It was a photo of the biggest band in the world, Nirvana. Kurt Cobain had just killed himself, and this was a story about his suicide. Next to Cobain was the band’s onetime second guitarist. A guy with long, strawberry blond curls. “Is this you?”
Everman exhaled. “Yes, Drill Sergeant.”
And that was only half of it. Jason Everman has the unique distinction of being the guy who was kicked out of Nirvana and Soundgarden, two rock bands that would sell roughly 100 million records combined. At 26, he wasn’t just Pete Best, the guy the Beatles left behind. He was Pete Best twice.
Damn kids, you talk about Fuel and others playing Stage ae and all of those crappy groups are still touring and stuff, but yet soneone with real talent is banisbed to play before 80 people at Club Cafe. Where is the justice?
