Default Your age and the song that REALLY hooked you onto music?

When I was 11 years old or so I asked my older brother's teenage friend (who was blasting music in his headphones at the time) what the big deal about music was, and let him know that I was never really into it. All he replied was, "just wait till you reach puberty and ask me then." Being an intelligent 11 year old that I was, I laughed at the word "puberty" and went on playing my video games.

-Cut to 2 years later- I'm going through my lonely, "I don't really understand myself and nobody does either" phase and I hear the Red Hot Chili Peppers - Under the Bridge playing on the radio. That was it. I still remember how deeply that beautiful melody and lyrics passed through me. I fell in love right then and there and music has been a big part of my life ever since (I'm still young, 20).

I guess I'm curious to see what age you guys were when music really struck a chord with you, so to speak, and if you happen to remember a specific song that might have done it?

I was around six and it was a combination of George Thorogood and The Destroyers and The Beach Boys.

I would have been about 11 by the time I really appreciated it but, What's The Frequency Kenneth? by R.E.M. It was around the time I was just starting to get into the band (Stand, Sidewinder, End of the world all followed). Haven't looked back since!

5 years old, my big brother brought home Twisted Sisters Stay Hungry and had me listen to We're Not Gonna Take It. Hooked for life... I used to listen to everything he said was good, until I didn't get his Pink Floyd The Wall when I was 11 or 12 (I get it now, yet still don't really like it) or some that's when I started listening to more more independantly. He got me a Nervermind cassette then, and that solved that temporary musical lethargy.

I had listened to my mom's entire cd collection, I was 4 at the time I think. I was listening to alot of Ministry at the age of 5 and find it a little distubing now when I look at it from someone else's perspective.

I grew up around my sisters a lot. So I pretty much always had Guns N Roses growing up. I can't recall ever not being around it and enjoying it.
