I think that at the time, when people started listening to the whole thing, they made a connection to it. I think music in general changed because of them, and you can connect the dots between that, NWA, Nirvana, NIN, Pearl Jam, right down to Tupac and Eminem. It didn't fit in with what was out at the time, same with U2's "Joshua Tree".

I think Bob Dylan at his angriest were also some of his best songs. Why else would people continue to cover them?

It's an album that people have bonded to, f**ked to, got high to, and a song like "Sweet Child O' Mine" can bring you back to a specific time in your life. If you heard them in later years, then it's like talking about The Beatles or Led Zeppelin after they broke up. You still connect with the songs, but you don't have that nostalgia mixed into it as much. It's more like watching "Breakfast Club" or "Ferris Bueller" 20 years after it came out for the first time.

Usually, what makes a classic album a "classic" has to do with emotional attachment, whether the songs hold up. Pink Floyd "Dark Side of the Moon" becomes more relevant the older you get.

Eddie Vedder said The Who's "Quadrophenia" saved his life, and there's a lot of "appetite for destruction" on there.
