So what was the very first Audio CD you purchased?

Mine was Persistence of Time by Anthrax. Great album.

I got So far, so good, so what by Megadeth with my hifi. First CD I bought was Red Roses for me by The Pogues, oops.

I was a relative latecomer to CDs - stuck with cassette tapes for a long time before upgrading. My first purchased audio disc was probably the soundtrack to Braveheart, or one of the Thunderdome CDs.

I think the first CD I bought was Deaf, Dumb, Blind from Clawfinger, a Norwegian metal band. It really kicked ass and I remember listening to it all the time.

@Harrison & PG

Funny is, I went to an Anthrax concert in Germany where Clawfinger was the opening act. That was the time when they just released their first album Deaf, Dumb, Blind. Great gig btw.

Cool. Did you like Anthrax live? This is one band I've not seen live.

It's been a long time now that I've seen them, when I remember right, Dan Spitz was still in the band, and Scott has always been my idol since I listen to metal.

Wow, must have been great to see Anthrax live, and Clawfinger not least. :thumbs:

I remember seeing Clawfinger live at a Rammstein gig, and I get the feeling that I and my friends were not in their good books, 'cos they kept staring at us with unpleasant looks in their eyes, as we were the only ones in the front who weren't jumping around and moshing with the others.

Of course, then we started chanting "We Want Rammstein!"... I don't think that went down too well either.

Actually, we got to speak to a couple of the band members afterwards, and they were really nice to us.

Hmmm, it was either Appetite for Destruction or Aerosmith's Get a Grip.

I still like Appetite for Destruction and listen to it often. Definitely the best album they released.

I agree with that, It's one of a small handful of CD's where every track is great. They could have made just as good follow up with a single Use Your Illusion but instead the two CD's are half good tracks and half mediocre fillers.

Definitely. There are some great tracks mixed into those two CDs. Such a shame.

I also agree, but I never listened to GnR, as I hated their look and behavior, and I always hated Axel's voice. But their other albums were even worse.

Aye, they were (and still are) two great albums. Other CDs I bought (or was given) after getting my first CD player were Grave Dancers Union by Soul Asylum (the one with runaway train) and Pocketful of Kryptonite by the Spin Doctors.

Those two haven't stood the test of time so well.

In fact, they kind of sucked even when they were current :no:
