208The Stone Roses

I'm glad the stone roses are on this list, even if they are down at 225. Their debut album released in 1989 is one of the best debit albums of my time in my opinion, and all the songs on it (besides Elizabeth my dear its not even a minute long) have the potential to be hits, and 'I Am the Resurrection' alone is a monster of a track. Add 'I Wanna Be Adored', 'Made of Stone', 'Waterfall' and 'She Bangs the Drums' and we have a great album. oh yeah, I'm from America too.

They should be a lot higher. I think that their debut is one of the best albums of all time! Great musicians, especially the bassist (Mani) and drummer (Reni).
