21We Will Rock You

Some of the best ever Queen songs, with an insane plot-line thrown in! It couldn't get any better! - ObsessedwFreddie

22Thick as a Brick - Jethro Tull
23Antichrist Superstar - Marilyn MansonV1 Comment
24Anthem - Drew Puzia

I love this rock opera because it really rocks and tells a great story at the same time. Plenty of guitar work and synths drive the songs with a lot of power.

28Repo! The Genetic Opera

This. This rock opera was absolutely fabulous. I adored Sarah Brightman's performance, as I always do, and believe that the story and music is quite original. This should've been in at least the top 20.

Normally, I can't stand Sarah Brightman, but here, good god

29The Human Equation - Ayreon
30Hedwig and the Angry Inch

This will move up the list fast as Neil Patrick Harris is about the take the lead role in 2014 on Broadway. Go check out the original starring writer/director John Cameron Mitchell. He is amazing. This rock opera is amazing!

A beautiful story about struggle, self realization and the love of rock and roll. Best film of 2003.


"Prepare ye the way of the Loord. " Stephen Schwartz really knew what he was doing!

33Turahtan (Rock Opera)
34Metropolis - Dream Theater
35West Side Story
36The Devil's Carnival
37Mëkanïk Dëstruktïẁ Kömmandöh - Magma
38A Hard Day's Night - The Beatles

The definitive storytelling of what it was like in 1964 when they became the biggest thing in the world. Funny, smart, and irreverent.
