    Last time I remember playing something in a Discman was Nirvana’s Unplugged back in 1994 on a bus ride to Chicago with my high school chemistry class. The next year my Pop put a CD head unit in my CRX for my birthday and it was bye-bye Discman. No more plugging it into the cigarette lighter for juice and having the passenger be a human disc changer. Haha!!

    This one has lasted me almost 20 years after my original crapped out. It was a beast back in the days of MP3 CDs before digital files made them irrelevant. It also serves as our primary CD player in our living room attached to the stereo receiver

    In 2000 it was definitely either Green Day, Blink 182 or Eminem.  
  • tbergstbergs Posts: 7,665
    I was spinning the new discs from A Perfect Circle, Disturbed, Nonpoint, Linkin Park, Outkast, The Beatles (number 1's compilation), The Best of the Doors, RATM Renegades, Eminem, PJ, Godsmack, Staind, Tool, Limp Bizkit (pissed they broke PJ's record for sales in a week though). Sadly, I also listened to a lot of Nickelback's The State, although I never bought it, just ripped from Napster.

    Still spinning these quite a bit in early 2000: Metallica S&M, Sevendust, Dr. Dre, Korn, STP, Incubus, Creed, NIN, Static X and RATM from previous fall.
