By the way, what's worse is when you go to download a song by Berlin and suddenly Irving Berlin comes to mind....

But there were kegstands and quarters involved in your past?

Adam Ant
Cheap Trick

I remember being laughed at by my siblings for listening to REM, Bangles, U2, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Marshall Crenshaw, Talking Heads, Elvis Costello before they had any fame. They eventually came around to most of my music. (I still remind my sister, who is a SRV fanatic about how she laughed at me for listening to him.)
