    My favorite obv. been EDM/Electronic/Dubstep type stuff for a min.

    Got into it back in 2012 when a friend sent me Bangarang because cause I'd never heard of dubstep (somehow, I don't know how)

    Found an SL thread after that when searching for other s--- like that (which coincidentally is part of the reason I ever joined there), and stumbled onto a bunch of albums that have since become some of my all time favorites (and some of my favorite artists of all time).

    Hearing my dad play Prison Song as a kid got me into alternative which eventually branched into a love for all kinds of rock and metal and hardcore.

    Cant really pick one song, but the albums that got me into rock would be:

    The Doors - The Doors

    War - The World is a ghetto

    Pink Floyd - any album

    Jimi Hendrix - Electric Lady land
