10 Albums You Bought Just To Look Cool In High School

…Because you weren’t anyone if you didn’t have these spinning on your Sony discman.

 

   1.   SONIC YOUTH - GOO

Mostly indecipherable feedback noise. But Rolling Stone mag said they were cool so you dropped $30 on it.

 

   2.   NIRVANA – BLEACH

 

You only bought this because you heard Nevermind and thought this would be just as good. It wasn’t.

 

   3.   ALANIS MORRISSETTE – JAGGED LITTLE PILL

 

You heard You Oughta Know and thought it was cool…until radio played ALL OF IT ALL THE TIME. Chucked it to your little sister instead.

 

   4.   NINE INCH NAILS – THE DOWNWARD SPIRAL

 

Because it said fuck a lot mum would only let you play this on the discman.

 

   5.   RADIOHEAD -  PABLO HONEY/THE BENDS/OK COMPUTER

 

You didn’t even like them but it made you instantly cooler having any of these on your CD rack.

 

   6.   BJORK - POST

 

Because that weird big-band sounding song was big on the JJJ Hottest 100 one year.

 

   7.   JEFF BUCKLEY – GRACE

 

Sounded like something chicks would like to pash to.

 

   8.   EMINEM - THE SLIM SHADY LP

 

Remember when he was cool?

 

   9.   NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS – MURDER BALLADS

 

Because you wanted to seem dark and broody and you thought Kylie was hot but didn’t want to be open about it.

 

   10.   HOLE – LIVE THROUGH THIS

 

See above Bleech.
