43Highway To Hell - AC/DC

This is AC/DC at their finest. BIB is a close second however, HTH just rocks more

44Beggars Banquet - The Rolling Stones

The start of a classic run of great albums, one of the best album ever from the Stones.

45Physical Graffiti - Led Zeppelin

Only 42. No, no, no. One of the finest rock album produced ever. Should be among the first 20.

Led Zeppelin - The Doors - Janis Joplin - Love - Neil Young all on top. The first 6 Led Zeppelin albums should be in the top 30!

"The first 6 Led Zeppelin albums should be in the top 30! "
No: The first 6 Led Zeppelin albums should be in the top 5!

47Destroyer - KISS

Iconic. After "Alive! " catapulted KISS to the top, "Destroyer" proved the accession wasn't a fluke. Bob Ezrin (the same producer for Pink Floyd's "The Wall," stretched KISS' song-writing and musicianship to new levels. The songs have stood the test of time, E.G. , "Detroit Rock City," "Beth," "Shout it Out Loud," "Do You Love Me," etc. An amazing musical experience!

484 - Foreigner

Why is this hear
