This album changed my life. The Animal in Me covered The Rock Show by Blink 182. Before listening to this album in the 20s, I only listened to rap and hip/hop. I fell in love with this genre of music and started getting tattoos. lol.
Some of my friends even started listening to this album, even though they remained mostly rap hip/hop.
This album was a gateway for all things pop/punk, from New Found Glory to Dashboard Confessional to MXPX & everything in between.
I’d had relationships with women whom I otherwise wouldn’t have met.
