A while back Achlys created a topic about artists you instantly fell in love with. What about artists you didn't like, maybe you even hated them, but eventually you fell in love with them?
Years and years ago I bought the Foo Fighters album In Your Honor. This was back in high school, I think. But when I listened to the album I just thought the music was a lot of noise. I don't think I ever even made it to the second disc, which had a lot of ballads. Maybe two years later I broke up with my high school sweetheart. It was rough. And one day I was going through my CD collection and stumbled across In Your Honor. Maybe I was looking for something to numb my pain, so the thought of some loud noise was appealing. But as I listened to the album it started to actually help heal my wounds. The words resonated deeply, and the music felt perfect for what I was going through. I never looked back. I'd often post lyrics to the songs on my Facebook. Actually, my ex eventually took notice and asked me "what's with all the Foo Fighters songs?"
Anyway, I consider myself a huge fan nowadays. Saw them in concert two summers ago. Fantastic concert!!!
