I can't really say. I've always embraced all sorts of music, probably because my parents listened to a variety of music while I was growing up.

lol, but seriously. 

You've probably only listened to their first album with Mike Patton. The one with "Epic" on it. It's all good. Let me know if you want to hear any of their other stuff.

I will also add Salt'n'Pepa to this. They rocked my world in grade 5.

My life changed when I first heard "Walk on the Wild Side" by Lou Reed.  It sparked an interest in classic rock that has informed my taste in music to this day. 

Guns n Roses, Metallica, and Van Halen (their early stuff, with David Lee Roth) probably deserve joint credit in getting me interested in heavy rock music.  Van Halen more than the others I guess because I heard them first, but GnR and Metallica deserve mentioning because they were the first hard rock/metal groups I ever really got into.

Without The Clash's London Calling I may never have gotten over my opinion of punk music as nothing more than repetitive and amateurish; I now consider it my favorite genre of music.  Moby's Play led to a similar epiphany regarding the merits of electronic music.

No, they fucked up a Metallica concert for me.  Thanks a lot, Talent No Moar.

Oh geez, you are judging them on the sound levels when they were opening for another band?  That's not really a good way to see a band. I have seen some brilliant love musicians who sounded awful when opening.

I believe it was the Justice tour around 89, maybe a little later.  Talent no Moar sucked so bad that I was praying for Metallica to come on stage.

Thanks for repeating yourself and adding the year in. It totally changed my mind!  Anyway, I was right, you only heard Faith No more when Mike Patton was not in control. Different band subsequent to "The Real Thing". You should check it out, unless you are really attached to 1989.

I do not personally care for Metallica, but I would never be so bold as to claim that that makes them a bad band.

Without The Clash's London Calling I may never have gotten over my opinion of punk music as nothing more than repetitive and amateurish; I now consider it my favorite genre of music.

London Calling is arguably more post-punk than punk itself.  I'm not entirely sure what that means, but I think it refers to the music being somewhat more complex and varied in its influences than traditional punk.

I can understand that, but if that's a thing it must be a relatively new one.  I've always heard it referred to as punk.

So, who's arguing that then?
