News broke yesterday of the bands and artists nominated for inclusion in that most prestigious of institutions, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. To celebrate some monumental names being added to the list – in some cases well after they were originally eligible – we’re taking this Throwback Thursday to look at some of their debut albums.
Nirvana – Bleach
While the Seattle Grunge band wouldn’t really break into mainstream awareness until the release of 1991′s Nevermind, their debut album Bleach still stands as a testament of a band honing its sound, with lots of great things potentially ahead of it.
Kiss – Kiss
The makeup, the hair, the rock swagger. It was all there on the group’s 1974 debut, which was reportedly made almost entirely in less than two weeks. Lots of hits would follow.
The Replacements – Sorry Ma I Forgot To Take Out the Trash
The songwriting prowess of Paul Westerberg and others echoes through countless dorm halls in the early- to mid-1980s as the band picked up where the first wave of punk left off and brought it home to suburbanites everywhere.
N.W.A. – Straight Outta Compton
It’s hard to think of another group that wound up influencing so much of rap’s early years. With Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and others who would go on to solo stardom, this record brought rap to the masses in a big way.
Yes – Yes
Because everyone needs a little prog-rock in their lives. Over the years – and through countless personal lineups – Yes would go on to encourage radio listeners to air-synth and inspire some great moments in the movie School of Rock.

As front man for multi-platinum band 311, it’s obvious that Nick Hexum takes influences from a multitude of genres that have made his funk/rock/alternative band so successful. It’s with that success that he’s able to branch out with his first solo project, The Nick Hexum Quintet, who released their first album My Shadow Pages, last month. This new project infuses even more sounds alongside direction from producer Jim Scott (Wilco, Tom Petty, Jason Mraz) and his fellow bandmates who have long resumes to their name as well.
To celebrate the release, Nick sent us a list of favorite blues songs, including legends like Buddy Guy and Etta James and contemporary genre-benders like Gary Clark Jr and The Black Keys. Enjoy!
