recently while scouring the pages of youtube, i come across an old really really sad music video i havent seen since i was a child called "the change" by garth brooks, and i realized that it hit me just as hard as it did when i was a child, and it got me thinking about how my life used to be back when i was younger (i had a rough childhood) and how it is now, and i realized how much music has changed my life and my outlook on certain situations, so im curious now as to what songs really mean something you you guys or what songs were so powerfull to you that it changed how you thought or lived.

I wouldn't say it has changed my life at all, but the video of Johnny Cash's version of "Hurt" is probably the most epic music video ever.

I'm still a little young to be talking about songs that changed my life, but one that's always made me think about where I am in life is Carry On by Blessed By A Broken Heart.

When I was eight, me and my best friend started "practicing for girls".
Which involved us going into the woods, and him sticking his dick in my ass.
The last time we did it, his sister caught us.

Girls, girls, girls by Motley Crue, I don't know why but after I heard that song everythings going great for me, made me more positive I think.

Pretty much anything off of the self-titled album by Lo-Pro...I was going through a pretty deep depression when I picked up the CD, and I could relate to every single song...I heard some recent acoustic demos they put on MySpace, and had the same reaction...Lo-Pro just kicks ass.

When I heard The Leper Affinity by Opeth (the first song I heard from them) it changed my whole outlook on music. I never heard a band this unique before and definately changed my metal music tastes and music in general.

Metallica's One is the first song I can remember liking. Even as a small child I hated kiddie-tunes. When I was four (must've been in '88) some kids were playing that song from their boombox near the fence of my kindergarden, but of course I didn't know what it was, but when I got a name and a title I got my priorities set straight.

beau05: Actually, I dropped out of kindergarden shortly after that incident (and it ain't even a lie). We're a cool bunch, eh?

Then later on everything by Jeff Buckley changed my life in a whole lot of ways...

But in all seriousness, I would have to say "All The Small Things" from Blink182. That's the song that got me into music. I am forever in debt to Blink, they are my first and largest inspiration to start playing guitar. If it wasnt for them, I would probably be some gay white rapper kid.

"Wounded" by Third Eye Blind; for some reason, the line "Back down the bully to the back of the bus./ 'Cos it's time for them to be scared of us." Just sort of rearranged my way of thinking the first time I heard it.

Oh, and a lot of Elliott Smith songs; "King's Crossing" especially.

I am forever indebted to Rage Against the Machine. Before I got into Classic Rock, Hard Rock, and Metal, I didn't really listen to music till I heard RATM. Evil Empire pretty much got me into music.

Then, around 99, I heard Iron Maiden's Hallowed Be Thy Name for the first time. That opened me up to check out Rush, The Who, Maiden, Priest, and Sabbath. Everything just flowed from there on.

So yea, I pretty much owe my life to Hallowed Be Thy Name.

This Velvet Glove - Red Hot Chili Peppers.

To me it is the pinnacle of the chili peppers, and also music for me. When i saw them I said to a random chick who was next to me that I would cry if they played it - out of nowhere they started playing it... I was in another world for that 3 minutes 45 seconds.

I have a few sad tales of songs that changed my life
first of all is, i regret to say american idiot by green day, this is what first got me in to music, however it takes a happier turn from there.
The following months I began listening to more lame music, until my cousin decided to bless me by showing me iron man. That changed me in to my heavy metal phase, which was intensified when i heard iron maiden. Which have had a special place in my heart ever since. Long afterwards, i saw clerks II, and they played that king diamond song(cant remember name, but it was epic, think it was welcome home) And that had me make a pandora radio station about it.... Which decided to play the emerald sword by rhapsody, and everything went power metal from there.

I am not ashamed saying that I used to, or still do infact, like Green Day, because I do. I mean sure they use only power chords, but Billie Joe is an amazing songwriter. Green Day were one of my early influences in guitar, because their stuff was fun and easy to play. I don't listen to them that much, because I mainly listen to shred, but they ARE a good band I think.

I guess it would have been Wonderwall or Don't Look Back In Anger by Oasis, as they were the band that first got me listening to music, and they are the songs that really stick into my mind......

My older brother turned me onto heavier stuff, as he was into KoRn etc when they first came out, and I developed from there. I listen to pretty much everything going!
