    It's actually a really interesting question I asked myself not so long ago and it goes quite a long way back, but I remember it perfectly :
    My step-brother and I would go to our city's mediatheque (it's like library but also with movies, music, games, etc...) to rent out cd-s of known and unknown bands. At that time, I was into the whole Sum41 shit (don't judge, please XD) and my step-brother was into metal. So one day in 2004 (AYDY hadn't been released yet), he rented out this weird blue album with a reaper on it (Follow the reaper, obviously) and after listening to it on his own, he came to me like "Charlie! Charlie! You have to check this out, it's amazing!" and he made me listen to 2 songs "Hate me!" and "Children of decadence". For both of them my reaction was "Wow, what an introduction! But.... But what's wrong with this singer? Why is he screaming like that?". I actually hated it other than the introductions of both song and didn't listen to it for a year or two.
    After completely forgetting about this band, I went back to the mediatheque and saw again this blue album. I remembered hating it, but I was like "Eh, what the heck, let's give it a second chance". And that's when I fell in love with Children of Bodom =) Liked all of it the second time, went back and rented out Something wild, Hatebreeder, Hatecrew deathroll & Are you dead yet? (which was out then) and I've been a huge fan since then =)

    [FunFact] My step-brother also made me discover Cradle of Filth the same way, and now he doesn't listen to metal anymore but is into this Blink148/Sum41 type of sound XD

    I don't know which song was the first one unfortunately. It was far heavier than anything I'd listened up till then (Metallica and a little Iron Maiden) and I absolutely hated it. Most likely something from Blooddrunk as it was early 2009 back then. My very vague impression of the song implies it might have been Roadkill Morning, but logic tells it would have been Tie My Rope as the guy who introduced me to the band said it was his favorite song. No idea really.

    Anyway, the second song I heard from them was likewise Done With Everything, Die For Nothing from the Guitar Hero 5 song list previews months before the game was released. It was only a brief piece of the main riff in the song (The one that comes after the intro), but I really liked it and went to listen to the entire song. Ended up liking the instrumental but didn't like the vocals. This resulted in me listening to 8-bit covers of the songs for the first month or so. Eventually I began moving over to the actual songs and getting used to the singing. A year or so later I even tried learning to do it myself (And this is something I've still not managed to learn :D )

    Follow the Reaper in 2000 from a stereo system that sadly got broken years later whilst playing the same album inside our summer house sauna that was fuming with steam. I have many FTR albums, including the original, which is sprinkled with dried beverages, torn and fractured in restless nights forgotten in fogs of time. That original was even stolen by my first gf once and once held as mortgage by a crazy fucker who threatened to give it away at the street.

    I think it was early 2002 from Kazaa or some file sharing program where I tried downloading a different song (think it was Arch Enemy) and a lot of people would put random songs with the title you tried to download and turned out to be Bodom After Midnight

    The first song I heard was Hellhounds On My Trail. Blooddrunk had just come out and I was really into Nightwish at the time so my brother was trying to get me into heavier bands because he was really into death metal at the time. I had a sony walkman mp3 player and my brother would save his favorites in there so I would start listening too. He fuckin hated and still hates COB but he thought it would work as a "portal" for me to death metal and black metal.
    So one night I couldn't sleep and I was looking through the music library and I thought the album cover looked cool. And Alexi had been on the cover of Suosikki that month so the band name caught my eye.
    I wouldn't listen to any other bands for a while after that because I was so in love :D
