First CD?

Pshhhhaaa. You mean first TAPE.

And it was Prince's "Batman Soundtrack" ... followed up soon after by Michael Jackson's "Bad."

First CD was Nirvana's "Nevermind."

First borrowed CD was Blink's "Dude Ranch" ... that changed everything.

First burned CD was The Ataris' "Blue Skies..."

First mp3 ever downloaded? Flagpole Sitta by Harvey Danger (followed by some New Found Glory songs).

I'm pretty sure flagpole sitta was the first MP3 I downloaded as well! I remember being obsessed with that song and just listening to it on repeat, in really bad quality on that old crappy MP3 player on the PC where you could change the skins into numerous, equally horrific designs. I wish I could remember what it was called.
WinAmp?

I skinned or re-skinned that thing practically daily.

I built a bunch of old Blink-182 and AP.net winamp skins back in the day.

Probably like 96kbps or something.

So badass, I can't stand it!
I had to let my mom listen to it first because she was afraid of language and content.

YES!!!!! That was such a bag of crap!!It was revolutionary at the time though. I remember downloading skins and thinking "This is amazing! everything is bright yellow, Red & Blue" or "No one can be as cool as me because their MP3 player doesn't have a big picture of Michael Jackson's face on it and the play button is his nose"
Haha, yeah, I skinned basically everything back in the day. Haha, my toolbars needed to be awesome! All my apps. Hahah, I can't even count the hours wasted on some of that shit.

From the outside looking at that computer now it would look like some fucking borg took over the entire thing and upped the contrast 90000%.

The first cassette tape I bought was the Dumb & Dumber soundtrack (I also grabbed a Power Rangers walkman to listen to it on).

First CD: Nine Inch Nails - Broken. I then bought Coolio - Gangsters Paradise. My friend gave me a copy of Metallica's Black Album next (just the CD no artwork or anything...which wasn't too uncommon back in the day).

Ahh the days of 200CD holders. Anyone old enough to remember those giant binders people would lug around at school?
Had 3 of them.
