Best Rock Albums of All Time (Excluding Greatest Hits)


The Contenders: Page 6XW

101End of Silence - Red

Every song on this album is a masterpiece, not one song ever feels boring, or bland. Every song on this album is very good. Red is a really underappreciated band, with so many good songs, and I feel that their albums woyld be higher on the list if this band was more well known.

102The Swing - INXS
103Toxicity - System of a Down
104War - U2
105Another Perfect Day - Motorhead

Robbo... Yeah.., Robbo... Best guitarist Motorhead ever had. Didn't work out but the music was top notch. Dancing on your Grave, best track they ever did.

106Pump - Aerosmith
107Faust - Faust
108Sticky Fingers - The Rolling Stones
109Infestissumam - Ghost B.C.
110In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson

It is sad how little public interest there is in King Crimson. This album is absolute, raw perfection.

111Smash - The Offspring
112Hysteria - Def LeppardV1 Comment
113The Joshua Tree - U2

The best album in rock music, I don't know how on earth it's this low. Are you kidding me? - ATiM

114The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground and Nico
115London Calling - The Clash

This album, with Velvet Underground and Nico, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, electric warrior, remain in light, my aim is true, transformer, and look sharp should be in the top ten!

Pioneers of punk. Amazing album and should be ahead of any Linkin Park, Green Day, or 30 seconds to mars albums.

116Déjà Vu - Crosby Stills Nash & Young
117New Jersey - Bon Jovi
118A Beautiful Lie - Thirty Seconds to Mars
119Dirt - Alice In Chains
120A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay
