I'm not that big a fan of BWBW but I guess its what made me buy the album, because I was looking for a depressing CD and the BWBW video was pretty depressing. Plus it was a double CD which was cool. cHECK oUT mY zWAN lYRICS sITE! bILLY i lOVE yOU.

the whole depressed rock n roll alternative thing was a major turn on, also the fact that everyone was doing it made me want to do it
that is also why many of us are nsync fans
to go with the flow

When I was twelve or thirteen my friend's brother dubbed Siamese Dream on tape for me and I suppose I got into them almost as a bonus of trying to make him notice. About two months later I saw them live and they were, of course, amazing. After that I was hooked.

Interesting..... reason to listen to more SP. Disarm did it for me (in 1999, that is).

I saw the BWBW video when it first came out, was really confused, yet intrigued. Then I bought a bass and wanted to be D'Arcy.

I knew 1979 and TT from the radio, I loved them. When I listened to MCIS in a store I was completely overwhelmed. Adore was released some time after I listened to MCIS, and I immediately bought it. It took me some time to get into it, but I loved it after a while and it made me buy MCIS and all the other albums as well.

BWBW was the first single I ever bought. MCIS was the first album. I was nine.

I heard Disarm on the radio and liked it but never had any idea who sang it till I saw the band at Lollapalooza. So, I bought SD and PI and after a few listens, they were one of my favorite bands. 1979 sort of cemented the "absolute favorite" status.

i remember seeing and hearing 'today' and enjoying but never knowing what it was. then after MCIS came out i heard 'bwbw' and 'disarm' back to back on the radio... it all started that day. i remember it so well.

Drown 1993 I would say is when I became a real fan. I liked Rhino and all but I didn't think too much about it cause I was like 10/11 when i heard Rhino

I had MCIS and Siamese Dream since I was about 14... didn't listen to them at all. At 19 I put in Siamese Dream and was just overwhelmed by Cherub Rock. The sound of it just amazed me. That's what first got me into SP.

me too

I remember that one of my friends had MCIS and he would always turn it up really loud on "wanna go for a ride?" in zero, I was probably 8-9. i never really liked SP till i heard disarm in 1999 or 2000.

When I first heard today and saw the video I knew that this band fucking rocks.
but then when I was an angry depressed teen MCIS made me fall head over heals in love :love:
