No Doubt "Tragic Kingdom" - Gwen was the coolest! We're still fans of her and I love how her style has grown. I still blast "Just A Girl" when I need to get my girl power on.
Green Day "Dookie" - She had such a crush on Billie Joe. My father grew up on '70s punk so naturally we loved the modern version of punk. My first concert was Green Day with Eve 6 and Third Eyed Blind as the openers. (Let's skip the fact that some drunk guy punched another guy a few rows in front of us and I flipped out lol I'm not that punk rock).
Hole "Live Through This" - '90s really were the best for girl power (and yes I'm including Spice Girls in that!). Courtney Love terrified me but I also thought she was the coolest because my tween self could never be like her. It was great to see her recently on Empire. She still has the pipes! Easily Entertained had a nice round-up as well.
Dr. Dre "Chronic 2001" - Smoke weed every day! I remember the thrill of listening to this album. It's solid black with a weed leaf (which I had no idea what that was lol). Everything needed to terrify your parents. We moved to California from New Jersey in '96 (aka peak rap). So this Jersey girl grew up with West Coast rap so a lot of my loyalties lie with Dre and his crew. Tupac over Biggie all day every day. Come at me!
What albums did your older siblings introduce you to?
