CDs found in Bedford Ave Salvation Army

On a recent visit to the Salvation Army thrift store on Bedford Avenue, ground zero for Brooklyn hipster "cool," I thought it might be fun to browse the CDs. What CDs are the coolest hipsters who have moved from Europe and California to live in Brooklyn sick of? What music have they outgrown and been unable to sell back to one of the CD stores on the Bedford strip? Or perhaps, what were they giving a try but just couldn't get into?

This is a very incomplete list of some of the used CDs I found. The normal assortment of generic holiday compilations and complete unknowns were present also, I only jotted down some which seemed interesting.

Pretty Girls Make Graves
Q and Not U
Friends soundtrack
Ween "The Pod" (burned on CDR)
Times New Viking "Paisley Reich" (still in shrinkwrap!)
Jessica Simpson
Marilyn Manson "Best Of"
Britney Spears "Hits" (burned on CDR)
Smashing Pumpkins "Siamese Dream"
Morningwood "Promo disc"
Need New Body "UFO"
Mindflayer "Take Your Skin Off" (If I didn't already own this, I definitely would have grabbed it! Also, the disc was missing, only the case was there.)
In-Bulbophonic Sound (Bulb Records sampler - ?!?! - I also already own this.)
Cherry Poppin Daddies "Zoot Suit Riot"
Sugar Ray "Floored"
Modest Mouse "Sad Sappy Sucker"
Red Red Meat "Bunny Gets Paid"
