Five Albums That Changed My Life: Miranda Miller of Cherri Bomb

Total Assault

Although they’re all still in their teens, that doesn’t mean Cherri Bomb are spending their nights cramming for math exams. The Los Angeles-based rockers are too busy opening arena shows for the likes of Smashing Pumpkins and Foo Fighters to sit in classrooms daydreaming about rock stardom.

Managed by Samantha Maloney, the former drummer of bands like Mötley Crüe, Shift and Hole, Cherri Bomb play a ballsy yet melodic style of hard rock that has already garnered the young band praise overseas with Kerrang! Magazine including them in their ’10 New Bands You Need to See’ feature. Next month Cherri Bomb will be issuing This Is the End of Control, their hotly tipped debut album.

To help celebrate the release, Noisecreep asked each member of Cherri Bomb to take part in our ongoing ‘Five Albums That Changed My Life’ series. This week, we’ll posting each list from Monday through Thursday. Today, we bring you guitarist Miranda Miller’s list. As a bonus, you can also check out a video diary she recently posted on Vevo.

Check out Miranda’s list and video diary below!

Yellow Submarine, The Beatles (1969)

Amazon

“I’ve been listening to this album forever and I have memories of singing the album and watching the “Yellow Submarine” movie with my dad. It’s become my favorite Beatles album because of the quirky songs and the memories I’ve tied with it. I love jumping around to “Hey Bulldog” and “Baby You’re A Rich Man”, but I also love the simplistic (yet true) meanings of songs like “All You Need Is Love” and “With A Little Help From My Friends”.”

11:11, Regina Spektor (2001)

Amazon

“This album immediately caught my attention. As soon as I heard a couple songs from it, I knew I had to get the whole album. I love how Regina Spektor can change your perception of music, how she experiments with her voice, and I just love the jazzy feel of the songs. “Rejazz” and “Pavlov’s Daughter” were on repeat pretty often.”

Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, Foo Fighters (2007)

Amazon

“How can you go wrong with a Foo Fighters album? Especially this one. I just love all the songs individually and how they come together and take you on a journey. All the songs make me feel something different, and that’s what is amazing. Good music should make you feel something. It inspires me every day to be a better musician and writer.”

AC/DC Greatest Hell’s Hits, AC/DC

Amazon

“My dad used to play this one in the car all the time, too. It was one of the first albums I got on my iPod. I always turn it up all the way, rock out, and forget about the world around me for a minute.”

Absolution, Muse (2003)

Amazon

“We covered “Time Is Running Out” a couple years ago, and I had so much fun with it. Muse inspires me to find amazing sounds for my guitar and keyboards, and to write epic keyboard and piano parts like Matt Bellamy’s.”
