    Define childhood
    I'll say my pre-teen years count, up to 13.

    Mine would probably be so gross with a bunch of pop-punk and nu-metal, and just a handful of bands

    Owned these legit CDs

    Sum 41 - All Killer No Filler
    Sum 41 - Does This Look Infected?
    Sum 41 - Chuck
    Linkin Park - Hybrid Theory
    Linkin Park - Meteora
    System of a Down - Self-titled
    System of a Down - Toxicity
    System of a Down - Steal This Album
    System of a Down - Mezmerize
    System of a Down - Hypnotize

    Didn't have legitimate copies of these but my brother would DL them for me or the majority of songs

    Blink-182 - Enema of the State
    Blink-182 - Take Off Your Pants and Jacket
    Blink-182 - Self-titled
    POD - Satellite
    Aqua - Aquarium
    Billy Talent - Self-titled
    Eminem - The Marshall Mathers LP
    Eminem - The Eminem Show
    Rammstein - Mutter
    Rammstein - Reise, Reise

    14 year-old me would probably say.

    Weezer - blue album
    Nirvana - Nevermind
    Nirvana - in utero
    Green Day - Dookie
    Green Day - insomniac
    Offspring - Smash
    Silverchair - Freak show
    Sepultura - Roots
    Radiohead - the bends

    That's probably about it, I don't think I listened to many albums then because I had to buy them with my pocket money. I really envy the fact that kids now can just get Spotify.

    I can’t think of 20 right now. If I consider my childhood to be up until about 15 years old, I’ll go with this.

    Soundgarden - Superunknown

    Built to Spill - Keep it Like a Secret

    At the Drive-In - Relationship of Command

    Linkin Park - Meteora

    Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf

    Mars Volta - De-loused in the comatorium

    Nirvana - In Utero

    Minus the Bear - highly refined pirates

    Musically, I had a great childhood. I was buying records when I was 4 with my pocket money. The 80s were a great time to grow up.

    Shame we didn't grow up at the same time, you're way younger than me.

    Ten, Dirt, Wish You Were Here, Blood Sugar and especially that Prodigy album, were so important to me.

    I just got ASMR reading this. How are you with new Gary Numan? Pretty much the same as old Numan? I saw him do Cars with NIN the first time I saw NIN. Melted.

    Yeah, all the electronic or new romantic artists I liked as a kid, I pretty much lost contact with as soon as I discovered my love of heavy metal in my mid-teens. I haven’t really paid any attention to Numan since the end of the 80s

    May I ask how old you are? I didn't think about Numan till I saw him with NIN in 2009, I loved Cars growing up but didn't know too much of his other stuff. When My Name is Ruin came out a few years ago I was in heaven.

    Didn't know he was going to show up so I lost the plot.

    This was the gig I was at, I was more happy for Trent than I was for me, he proper fanboyed it. It was wicked.
