Debut albums that spawned a scene


#1

#2

#3

New Wave Of British Heavy Metal.

Ignoring EMI’s suggestions to play it punk and all the better for it. Major influence in its way on Thrash and that artwork too.


#4

That and Faith No More - The Real Thing


#5

Was just about to post through the wire in the debut singles thread, and the college dropout definitely fits for this one


#6

Always seen this album as RHCP meets The Clash in the best of places, Great album and scene changing rather than creating maybe but kudos :slight_smile:


#7

The scene it sparked was regrettable. Might not have really started a scene but it was definitely a pre-cursor to Nu-Metal


#8

My first thoughts hearing the RATM debut were confusion then instant acknowledgement that they were the genuine article. It’s a classic album no matter how one looks at it. FNM were before but from a completely different angle.


#9

*The Real Thing isn’t their debut either. May be admissible as the debut with Patton but…


#10

American Nervoso by Botch


#11

Full Collapse by Thursday


#12

Hardcore:

The first pop-punk/melodic hardcore album:

sXe:

Emo:

“Post”-Hardcore


#13

What scene did this spawn?


#14

Further up thread I conceded that it might not have actually spawned a scene but it was perhaps a spark to some of the more rap orientated Nu-Metal


#15

Northwest punk/indie/twee which eventually spawned Nirvana:

UK’s version of the same-ish thing

Riot grrrl:


#16

I’d argue, like “grunge”, that’s more a trend than a scene though


#17

Yeah you’re absolutely right


#18

“Post-rock” is a bit of a silly term which can be traced back to Slint and Talk Talk but certainly within their respective (and later, wider) scenes:


#19

Mogwai had so much out before that album that really it was a scene that was waiting for a full album.


#20

Grunge was definitely a scene, wasn’t it? Not sure how you can think otherwise? The whole ripped jeans a flannel thing, etc. @JohnM can maybe offer comment.
