So 10 years ago makes me 13. I first heard GTA on MTV and the next week I listened to TTTYG like crazy and bought a FOB shirt the next. I wore that shit every day until Patrick's face faded out, and it was an identifier for the kids at middle/high school who also had the same interests me. I made amazing friends just through a common interest. I bought a guitar and GTA was one of the first songs I learned. We went to our first warped tour together and sang Grenade Jumper in our mom's cars. I'm still friends with them today and I still have that shirt. Even though I can't get into recent albums from them, I just can't stop loving them. It's one of those records for me that actually did change my life.
