When I was a Junior in high school my older brother was coming to town from college to check out a "new band" at the ranch bowl. He had an extra tickets and asked me to go but I said, "what, to watch some crybaby Emo band like The Cure or something?! Now way!" He said, "I'm telling you, this band and this type of music will be huge! You're loss nerd!"
Just a few months later that summer I heard a a song by that band and, let's just say, it changed the course of my life at that time. The song was "Alive" and that band was Pearl Jam.
Freaking Pearl Jam! And I missed out!
Let's just say I tend to follow my brother's taste in music since. Except for Wilco. I think they suck.
