|Best 15 Rock Albums|
These are the best hard rock albums, in my opinion.
The Dark Side of the Moon
Do I seriously need a reason for this?
Born to Run
BABY WE WERE BORN TO RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN!
Rush has always been a great band, and will continue to do so for years. Moving Pictures, though, is definitely their magnum opus, no matter how overrated it be. Rush forever!
You can't exactly classify these guys as rock, I suppose, but this was hard rockin' at the time. It definitely paved the way for hard rock and metal years after it, and it's still awesome, 10x more dark and heavy than any other death metal band.
|5|| ||The Beatles|
The White Album
The Beatles were so influential it's frightening. You all know that, no matter how average those albums be, these guys were important to the creation of many genres, especially in songwriting techniques.
Deep Purple in Rock
If you don't like this album, you are a disgrace to humanity as it is.
In the Court of the Crimson King
This, as many quote, invented the progressive genre. 1969, the year that something pivotal for the creation of progressive was made (Yes, King Crimson, Genesis), but King Crimson came out on top.
Led Zeppelin II
I think you know this by know. You, your mother, and your grandparents, and their grandparents, and their great-grandparents.
MONKEY GONE TO HEAVEN!!!!1
|10||Guns N' Roses|
Appetite For Destruction
Whoa oh whoa oh Sweet child o' miiiine.
This solo album is just amazing, simply put. It's one of the best solo attempts made from the 20th century, so it's a shame this man had to go when his time was far from over.
|13||The Velvet Underground|
The Velvet Underground and Nico
They're not rock n' roll, but they sure as hell were influential towards the alternative rock genre, so good for them. This album still rocks.
I don't want to put two artists on the same page, but this changed long epics. Nuff said, still not better than A Farewell to Kings.
Kill 'Em All
Many quote that this started thrash metal, and it still rocks harder than any other band nowadays. JUMP IN THE FIYYAAAAAAAAAA
|Cool list, but Aftermath is far from being the best Stones album IMO.|
Could use some London Calling as well. But massive thanks for 2, that's almost the definition of perfection.
|IMO London Calling is the epitome of rock, it's the culmination of all the different styles clashing (sorry for the pun) together.|
|Looking forward to that one! :)|
|Fuck yeah Rush|
|14 is stuck in my car stereo. fuck.|
|You know, there's a reason why this is considered a generic list. It's because these albums are effing amazing and at the same time were highly influential!|
|great list |
|great list. FUCK SPRINGSTEEN THO|
|Great pick for 12 imo. It's my favorite of theirs.|
|FUCK SPRINGSTEEN THO|
^ you crazy?
|Was thinking the same thing.|
Also, Omni: what about Exile or Let It Bleed ?
|sry man, i think you made a perfect list but i just can't get into springsteen. i mean obviously i have an obscure opinion when it comes to the boss and it's probably wrong (if opinions can be wrong) because so many people love him and he's sold millions of albums. Doesn't change the fact that i'd rather get sucked off by data from star trek than listen to his music|
|I like it. A lot. not getting why Clash or Velvet Revolver aren't rock though.|
|No Jethro Tull?|
|This list is pretty awesome|
|5 is worst post-rubber soul beatles album other than let it be/yellow submarine|
1 is slightly overrated
2 > all
otherwise list is good
|Fuck yeah king crimson. Good list|
|Fuck yeah king crimson. |
|Yea, should be Abbey Road ;)|
|Thought the band was called 15 Rock. Very misleading title.|
|9 is too cool to be next to faggy 10|
|"I like it. A lot. not getting why Clash or Velvet Revolver aren't rock though."|
Velvet Underground dude
|Holy crap... That's pretty bad of me haha. I dunno what I was thinking|
|List is as solid as a rock.|
|Fuck 10. Replace 15 with Master of Puppets. Those are the two big things I would change.|
|Good list. 9 is so damn good.|
