    I had a ton of cassette tapes, not as many cds (they skipped, walkmans and CD players were for people that never left their room). Even when cds were popular, and mini cds failed, I still bought tapes.

    First few cds were always given/grabbed with gift cards (usually of tapes I already had). By then, CD burners and napster were popular.

    So... I think it was a Fastball CD with the pills on it.

    I don't understand this. Why would you need a walkman if you never left your room? Wouldn't you just use a stereo?

    Ok, if cassette tapes don't count, I think it was Bad Religion's The Gray Race.

    Wear headphones so other people don't hear it.

    And you had to have a Walkman. Even though it would skip when you tried to put it in your starter jacket front pocket.

    I used a stereo in my room to listen to my music, and used a walk/disc man when I was out.

    I don't remember my first, but in 1996, I got Metallica's black album and the X Games vol 1 CD. I think those were my firsts.
    No wait...
    I also had Doggystyle and Tag Team's album back in like 1994, and definitely Ace of Base. Yeah, no clue what my first CD was.

    I'll add to the "snapped CD" stories though: Definitely had Downward Spiral snapped by my mom.

    My parents didn't care what I listened to, as long as they didn't have to hear it. Im shocked at how many people had their CD's snapped.

    You probably didn't grow up in a fundamentalist religious household like I did. I had a 700-Club member, Bill O'Reilly watching Hardline Republican for a mother though my formative years.

    I had a Korn poster torn off my wall because "it glared at her", Manson and Metallica CDs snapped for being "Devil music", t-shirts torn up for being "offensive", etc. Fun times.

    Well at least no one wonders why you're an atheist.

    Lack of evidence to warrant belief, but that shit certainly didn't help matters. Haha.

    Hopefully you blared a Ministry CD or two for your mom

    I think "Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs" album scared my parents the most but overall they had no issues with me listening to Korn, Metallica, Biohazard, etc. during my high school

    I remember xmas 1995 I got Sinister - Hate, Deicide - Once Upon The Cross and Dissection - Storm of The Lights Bane. Of course she had a List. Would have loved to see the store guys face when my mum asked for those.
    She probably didnt know by then. I still think good fit for xmas

    Yeah, my parents didn't really tell me what I couldn't listen too. Hell, my mom took me to get a Guns N' Roses shirt that had the chick on the front of Lies on it. I think she even bought it or me.
