Boston, particularly the first album, is my guilty pleasure. Although they came to stand for everything that is corporate rock, I think people forget how different they were at the time...I know I had never heard anything quite like it....Tom's unique guitar sound, Brad's voice, the organs...I thought it was great. When I got my first CD player (how many of you can remember purchasing your first CD player?...Hell, I was the first person in my neighborhood to own one!)...I rushed right out and bought "Boston" as my very first CD. I just wanted something that had a great sound that I wouldn't get tired of listening to...Remember, the CD collection at this point consisted of one!

Anyway, I know it's been worn out and the subsequent albums went from bad to worse, but that first Boston album was "fresh" at the time and when I hear it on the radio it brings back some great memories.

That I'll have to disagree with. Everytime I hear even a snippet of that song, it gets stuck in my head for the rest of the day. I usually have to chant that Badger song just to get it out.
As far as hip-hop guilty pleasures go, I do have to say I really liked that Fat Joe and Ashanti single from a year or two ago. I guess that would count as a guilty pleasure.

My guiltiest pleasure would probably be Nelly Furtado. I started listening to her when I listened to crap manufactured pop because it was the 'cool' thing around my school, and now I still like it now and then.

And, to be honest (and quite possibly laughed off this board), I voted for Clay Aiken a couple of times. I'm going to go hide in my corner of shame now.

As well you should, ID. Tut, tut.
Now go and listen to Nick Drake for a few hours. :p

DJM, all is forgiven!

My guilty pleasure will always be ABBA. My little girlfriends and I used to dress up like disco divas and sing along to Dancing Queen back in the day.

I think one of the great things about being a little kid is the completely uninhibited fun of discovering music for the first time and not caring about what's "cool".

everything that ryan adams has done after heartbreaker has made me regard him more as a guilty pleasure.

I feel your pain, Dawg. I'll cop to having a copy of Transistor hidden away somewhere.

I'm also a huge No Doubt fan. What?

And to hell with anyone who hates Pearl Jam. I'll love Eddie Vedder to the day I die, no matter how many lame haircuts he's gone through.

Just my second post - here's the sad stuff up front -

Still listen to - Judas Priest (72-84) Paula Abdul, first Michelle Branch record, Sisters of Mercy, Slayer "Reign in Blood", Depeche Mode, DMX and "Cars" by Gary Numan. Oh, and Human Leauge.

Not embarressed to listen to Alkaline Trio, Bouncing Souls or Ryan Adams even if people tell me I should be.
