Tegan and Sara's 25 Favorite Albums

Hole Live Through This (1994)

Tegan: "Released in 1994, four days after Kurt Cobain killed himself, we consumed everything about this record we could. Obviously without the Internet we had very little knowledge of Courtney or her and Kurt's relationship. I remember reading about her after Kurt died, but not before. This record was a clue, a piece, some solace in the tragic aftermath of Kurt's death. We were being raised by a very strong willed, open minded, politically active, proud feminist social worker mother...and so we really started to embrace female-fronted music at this point.

"Along with Green Day and Nirvana it was Hole that truly started to cement our desire to write and make our own music. It was shortly after this record came out that Sara and I started to play guitar and write music. Stand out track: 'Miss World.'"
