I stamped on a U2 album once, then I did a total 180 and stamped on it again.

The first one that comes to mind for me is Captain Beefheart & His Magic Band. My first exposure to the group was Trout Mask Replica, and when I listened to it, I thought "well fuck, they're not even trying, and that singer's just trying to be a weirdo." While the latter might be true, I still hated the album and group for a good 5 months. Then I decided to revisit Captain Beefheart after enjoying his and Zappa's collaboration on Bongo Fury quite a bit in the form of Safe As Milk. After getting to know and love Safe As Milk, I eased into TMR again (not without mild discomfort, but considerably less than when I first listened to it). Now it's my favourite album.

Nah man, Bullet the blue sky and the B-side are some great songs.

I remember first hearing The Cure in junior high and finding them pretentious and lacking in ability. I'd say my sophomore year of high school, The Cure really clicked for me. I appreciate their atmospheric takes on certain songs and really appreciate Smith as a lyricist. Their music may have changed over the years, but I can still appreciate throwing on anything pre WISH and even some songs off Wish.

I didn't like Nirvana back in the day. All the press on Kurt Cobain following his death didn't help their cause for me.

But when I heard some of their songs on a mix-tape a few years back it was "hey, I can like that". And I did. I've since picked up all the deluxe edition reissues of their albums & enjoy them like I should have back in the day.

It was also strangely drug related. Kids who started to smoke weed in 7th grade were also obsessed with Incubus and I thought that was uncool.

Now that I'm an adult (sort of) I appreciate their music and I'm a huge fan of the track "Aqueous Transmission." I also dig "Love Hurts" and "Here In My Room."

Good band, actually. Would have said I hated them up until a couple of years ago.
It's kind of the opposite for me. I loved S.C.I.E.N.C.E then after that they went downhill. I agree with you about Drive being overplayed and over-hyped. Really just a disappointing song.

Yeah. :/ I like S.C.I.E.N.C.E, too, but it's not my fave from then. I guess you had to be there.

Basically all of my favorite albums are something I would have hated five years ago.

Lol.

A big 180 for me was Sunn0))). My introduction to their music was seeing them open for !!!, and if you're familiar with the upbeat dance punk of !!!, you can probably imagine what an odd pairing it was. I had just gone through a bad breakup and was really in the mood for something energetic and upbeat, not oppressive guitar drones, and as a result I really hated Sunn0))). The weird thing was I kept thinking about them for weeks after the show, eventually bought one of their albums and loved it.
