Nothing wrong with that. I had been listening to Slayer secondhand via my brother as far back as I can remember, but the first song I ever really got hooked on was South of Heaven. I wouldn't rank that #1, maybe not even top 10, but it's definitely up there. The first full album I got hooked on was Reign In Blood like many others I'm sure. But my favorite album after listening to them religiously for a while now is Show No Mercy. I'm curious as to how I ranked Slayer in this thread in the past. I'll have to go look for my posts in here.
