Most on the list taken from allmusic, though they missed a few, including Skinny Puppy. Some of these I didn't hear until later, like Eleventh Dream Day, Happy Mondays, and Beat Happening. It's also clear from this that I spent every penny I made on music. I still have at least half of these on vinyl.
