    Whatever your preferred genre, what song by which artist or band, when you first heard it, made you fall head over heels in love with that genre?

    When i first time i heard rock music would have had to have been when my old music teacher would play stuff on his guitar like Weezer or something like that.
    First time i heard 'metal' and REALLY loved it, was when i watched Metallica in concert, I already new some of their songs but thats when i was like all BLAH:p lol, (its the only way i can explain it)

    my first fav rock band was the Beatles - i was like 9 or 10 so can't remember what song.
    Ozzy, Sabbath and AC/DC got me into metal as a young teen, but i think the first time i was just floored by a band was Iron Maiden, seeing them live on the Powerslave tour. I was a metal head for a long time after that.
    My next genre twisting experience was seeing Phish live. Since then i've been into the whole Phish, Dead, Keller type of music. Generally, its been live performances rather than particular songs that have had a big impact on what i listen to.

    Impossible to say. Not including that awful lite rock that I liked when I was a little kid (because mom had it on, and so naturally i liked it), I've always liked classic rock. That was also always playing, but that's actually good music. But I could never tell you who was the first band or artist, because it's the whole genre that I was exposed to (at least, the parts of the genre the radio played, and the few CDs mom and dad had, stuff like the Who, Doobie Brothers, and Allman Brothers).

    I do remember my first country artist that I really got into was Garth Brooks, still love his music. And in high school when I started listening to more modern rock, the first was Barenaked Ladies ("It's All Been Done" and "One Week") and 3 Doors Down ("Kryptonite").

    Hmm... I don't listen to any one style of music all the time... I can think of a few different songs/artists, however, that I fell in love with on first listen:

    - Social Distortion... I think "1945" was the first of theirs I heard.
    - Tori Amos... One listen to "Silent All These Years" and I had to own the album
    - The Smiths... first of theirs I ever heard was "There is a Light That Never Goes Out"
    - Ministry turned me on to industrial... can't remember the first song of theirs I ever heard, though.

    I know there are more, but those are the ones that come to mind for now.

    hmmmmm.... I suppose the earliest song I remember, outside of my grand-mammie's homemade diddy "bump doo de bump" was probably CSNY's "Our House" My Ma taught me all the words and we sang it all the time while our old jukebox spun the 45.

    I never really understood the intracasies of it until I was older though.... think I was like... 2 when she taught it to me.

    Grateful Dead - when I was nine years old my brother gave me the second set of the Fillmore East 4-29-71. The first note of Morning Dew hooked me like nothing else and they've been my favorite band now for over 20 years.
