Albums That Changed Our Lives: Musicology Staff Edition

We all have that one album that defined us; the one that shaped our tastes in music, our perspectives or that we simply have just really liked for a long time. Here is the list of albums chosen by Musicology staff; some of us had loads to say about these albums and some only a few words, but there is a huge variety in genres at play here that makes up the Musicology staff.


American Idiot – Green Day

American Idiot - Green Day

Chosen by Fiona

Fiona says: American Idiot was the first rock album I ever bought, listened to and actually really liked. After I became a fan of Green Day it was my dream to see them play live, and finally, in 2013, I did. Before I saw Green Day live my favourite band were Muse, but Green Day put on a much better show, interact with their audience and generally just look like they’re having a great time. I saw the American Idiot Musical in late 2012 too and it was fantastic to hear some of my favourite songs in a real, gritty, story setting.


The Young & The Hopeless – Good Charlotte

The Young & The Hopeless - Good Charlotte

Chosen by James M

James says: The Young & The Hopeless taught me that music can be rough and unpolished as well as brutally honest.


Dookie – Green Day

Dookie - Green Day

&

Suburbia I’ve Given You All and Now I’m Nothing – The Wonder Years

Suburbia I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing - The Wonder Years

Chosen by Tom

Tom says: Dookie influenced me on a musical level, but Suburbia influenced me on a more personal level.


All Hope Is Gone – Slipknot

All Hope Is Gone - Slipknot

Chosen by Bradley

Bradley says: All Hope Is Gone was the first metal album I ever listened to. I heard Snuff and thought “what’s this?” and then got into heavier music from there on.


The Hope Division – Stick To Your Guns

The Hope Division - Stick To Your Guns

Chosen by Josh

Josh says: The Hope Division is the first album that got me into the hardcore genre and helped me expand on those horizons.


The ’59 Sound – Gaslight Anthem

The 59 Sound - Gaslight Anthem

Chosen by Coops

Coops says: This record opened some many doors for me musically and turned me on to so many killer bands. They tell stories, write catchy tunes and they are such mellow dudes…


Riot! – Paramore

Riot - Paramore

Chosen by Victoria and Jade

Victoria says: Paramore are my favourite band of all time, and Riot shaped me. It’s easily a staple in alternative music.

Jade says: Riot was the first rock album I ever listened to.


Common Courtesy – A Day To Remember

Common Courtesy - ADTR

Chosen by Sam

Sam says: This album was my first encounter with A Day To Remember, and they are such a groundbreaking band with so much musical talent. This album helped me through my first major break up and introduced me to heavier music, teaching me how well emotion can be used in songs. Although I feel that Homesick is the best A Day To Remember album, it did not shape my musical influence like Common Courtesy did.


Sports – Modern Baseball

Sports - Modern Baseball

Chosen by James L

James says: The main reason for this choice is that Sports inspired me to listen to more of what I listen to now, and it also it is a massive reason I play my music the way I do. From the soft strumming and plucked patterns or the sometimes more aggressive style, but also from a lyrical sense and the way in which vocal patterns can affect a songs feel and emotional power.


The Poison – Bullet For My Valentine

The Poison - BFMV

Chosen by Lauren

Lauren says: The Poison came out while i was in my first year at college and really shaped my taste in music, and myself. My best friend bought tickets to the tour which also happened to be my first gig without my parents and in this genre, seeing the album played live made me fall deeper in love with it. Everything about it pretty much summed up being a teenager at the time. It’s still an album I can happily go to and listen to.

Lauren also recently took photos of Bullet For My Valentine in Manchester on their 10 year Poison tour!
