1. The entire Pacers first release, Bigger Hats, More Fire!!!

Note: The Pacers were the best band of the 90's (to date) and never received the respect they so rightfully deserved. The album above, which was only released on cassette could have shifted the direction of popular music today, had it been distributed by a major. I'm glad it didn't, but wish they had their success too.
