I found out this week that one of my favorite albums just turned 15 and couldn't believe it. That got me wondering what other albums were turning 15 this year. Here are a few albums that Millennials grew up with that are turning 15.
1. "Hot Fuss" by the Killers
Yes, this is the one with Mr. Brightside on it. If you're at a frat party that doesn't play Mr. Brightside, you're at the wrong frat party.
2. "American Idiot" by Green Day
SO many classics came off of this one, some you can check out in the highlights from our iHeartRadio Music Festival from this year. BTW, September has now ended.
3. "Back to Bedlam" by James Blunt
"You're Beautiful" has been parodied by Weird Al. Once that happens, you've made it.
4. "Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield
Still on the happy, upbeat playlists everywhere.
5. "Tha Carter" by Lil Wayne
The album that would spawn four others. Yes, this is the first one.
6. "Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge" by My Chemical Romance
Cue the Emo tears.
7. "The Chronicles of Life and Death" by Good Charlotte
Every angsty moment called for "I Just Wanna Live."
8. "Encore" by Eminem
Notable song: "Just Lose It."
9. "Under My Skin" by Avril Lavigne
I'm starting to realize how emotional I was at age 9. Maybe all this music is why.
10. "Hopes & Fears" by Keane
If you're wondering where the song "Somewhere Only We Know" came from that is now on countless soundtracks, this is it.
11. "Hilary Duff" by Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff will forever be a queen. Sorry not sorry. I still play this album.
12. "Autobiography" by Ashlee Simpson
Oh, you forgot she did music?
13. "Take It All Away" by Ryan Cabrera
Yes, I owned this one. Back in the days when frosted spiky-tipped hair was all the rage.
14. "A Hangover You Don't Deserve" by Bowling for Soup
Yes, in 2004, 1989 became an instant classic.
15. "Beautiful Soul" by Jesse McCartney
One of the most important albums on the list, the one that started the thought of it for me. I will forever be a Jesse McCartney fan.
