    All right guys, let's let the skeletons out of the closet. Come clean and don't be ashamed. What is the lamest Cd or tape ( depending on your generation) that you ever purchased. I'll start things off by listing mine below( please don't laugh...I'm sensitive :crying: ).

    M.C. Hammer

    Me too. I guess I don't have faith....

    I also bought a cd called Dragonlord. I hate it.

    1) play nothing special
    2) set keyboards to "spooky"
    3) play keyboards really load, but also slow and use the same 3 notes over and over.

    I bought Raffi for my kids at the same time I was buying Opeth's Still Life for myself. The clerk laughed at me.

    Spice Girls... Spice World *ducks and goes into fetal position*

    I'm not sure why but your 1.2.3. was insanely hilarious to me, thanks for perking up my morning. :D
  6. The official Sailor Moon soundtrack for my Daughter.
    Bon Jovi "New Jersey" for my Wifey
    Wierd Al Yankovic "In 3D" for Moi.

    yup. Taste went full South on that one.
  7. i FOUND a poison cd one day when i was drinking in santa cruz.... that night, the nelson brothers were playing a free show on the beach. i got them to sign it.

    i'm actually pretty happy with all my cd's. but the first time i listened to madonna trying to rap on that one communist looking album, i felt true shame. "i'm doing pilattes and checking out the hotties" oh man.
  8. Hmm, I think I have a New Kids on the Block tape around somewhere, but that shouldn't count since I would've been in like grade 3... right? :rollno:

    Similar experience as Blisshead.

    I bought Rod Stewart for my mother, and Napalm Death for my brother. The clerk laughed, and told me I'd won him $5, as the employees had a running weekly contest of "strangest purchase" and white-boy motown and grindcore won that week.

    I've bought no records I'm embarrassed of. There's some I have to explain, but non I'm straight up embarrassed about... like Limp Bizkit - 3 Dollar Bill Y'all

    No, I suppose not... but it's a fact I conceal when hanging around with the metal crew :D

    For some reason, that is the only album Wherehouse Music will not buy back from me. I think I got that album out of one of those 12 CDs for 1 cent deals, and I needed one more CD in the catalogue...
    Otherwise, most of the albums I have represent some phase I've gone through, and I don't feel embarassed about any of them (made the same error as everybody else with Limp Bizkit). The juxtaposition of Blur and the Get Up Kids amongst Cannibal Corpse, Origin, Cryptopsy, and co. often warrants an explanation though.
