Gotta be I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning. I was 12 when that came out so it was a pretty important music step for me.

Does anyone else feel like it's so mediocre it's bad? Like, it's not a great album, but it's not terrible. If it was awful, it'd at least be memorable. But instead it's just so forgettable.

I mean, I'm impressed by this list from Entertainment Weekly. It's not perfect, but no list is perfect. And it's a step up from any recent Rolling Stone list.

I think that top three sweep is equal to winning Best Picture, Director, and Actor.

I appreciate the list, and also disagree with the lack of Ceremony, but for me the best has gotta be either "Age of Consent" or "Temptation" cause those were the songs that made me fall in love with them

No, it isn't The Monitor, but doesn't Local Business deserve a spot in at least the top 50?

A friend of mine from college dated Dylan Baldi all throughout high school and the beginning of freshmen year. The stories I've heard have completely shaped my listening of the album.

Wait, did Moz go straight to Godwin's Law? Unprovoked, with no one calling him a fag or other things that happen on youtube comments?

Shit, that can be interpreted as a "Pumped Up Kicks" reference. You all should probably downvote me for that.

I think this list could use about 20% more murder ballads. Cause isn't that what summer is?

I'm in favor of them bringing back Celebrity Deathmatch so these two can solve this feud the only way it should be settled.

I mean, this song is great. But doesn't really work quite as well with humorous child abuse.

I know I read this website too much when I'm aware of the fully formed identities of the people in the comment thread and what to expect when their names appear in Shut Up, Dude.
