    • 10. Just A Girl by No Doubt
      In 6th grade Gwen Stefani was my idol. I wanted to be her and devoted the year to dressing like her and learning everything about her i could.
    • 9. Chemicals Between Us by Bush
      I only liked them at first because i thought they were Nirvana. Boy was i wrong. O yea and i thought he was cool since he married Gwen, but i never thought he was attractive.
    • 8. Black Hole Sun by Soundgarden
      Never heard this song until i heard Weird Al do his lil version. After words i noticed that it was on the radio alot. They were good but then broke up.
    • 7. Zombie by Cranberries
      I used to think i could sing like the lead singer. I was highly delusional.
    • 6. Longview by Greenday
      Another crush on another Billy only this time it was Billy Joe. I thought that due to the fact that they said masturbation and fuck in this song(since i was in 5th grade) that it was cool. Still a great song and band!
    • 5. The Beautiful People by Marilyn Manson
      I finally got cable the year this song came out. I fell in love with the song and the video. That year i turned goth but since i was young no one liked me anymore because i was "wierd."
    • 4. Bullet with Butterfly Wings by Smashing Pumpkins
      Great band with lots of talent and as a youngin' i had a massive crush on Billy Corgan.
    • 3. Pepper by Butthole Surfers
      This song came out when i was in elementary school. I loved it but i wasnt allowed to buy the cd because the bands name had "butthole" in it. My parents were strict then.
    • 2. Jeremy by Pearljam
      The video for this is great. It made me feel like im wasnt alone.
    • 1. Rape Me by Nirvana
      Recently I almost put this song on a mix tape for my bf. Its one of my all time favs but then I realized that rape me for the bf didnt send a good message.

    My music taste started to develop early on! Rock! Woohooo! Its changed alot though. I listen to a variety of punk, emo, indie, hardcore, old alternative, and jazz. Yes im a music nerd. But an art geek at heart!
