rroiqOuch. Glad to see you switched up from Eazy to NWA. I discovered NWA through that Eazy album actually. Heard the reference on one of the songs and bought the NWA album on a whim when I saw it in a case at the local Sam Goody. Changed my musical life forever.

Sad to see Living Colour leave the list though. I'm still listening to that one. I've also been listening to the Wilbury's quite a bit lately. I think that stuff has aged pretty well.
