Top 10 Bands with the Most Chronologically Confusing Studio AlbumsNormally a bands studio album discography would be fine but these bands are confusing either because they have 2 albums titled the same thing or the same album with two titles, or even the same album title but with completely different tracklisting.
The Top Ten
One of my favorite bands of all time but their discography is very confusing because most people think High Voltage was their first album,they are right but it isn't the same album they are thinking of. The High Voltage most people know is actually the T.N.T. album with two songs removed and two songs from the original High Voltage added in. that's not the only confusing thing about them, the original version of Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap contained the songs Jailbreak and R.I.P. (Rock in Peace), but they were removed for the international release and instead replaced with Rocker, a song from T.N.T. and a new song titled Love at First Feel, I should also mention tracklisting for both versions of Dirty Deeds are different besides the title track being the first song. On their next album Let There Be Rock it was mostly intact, but the song Crabsody in Blue was removed for international released and instead replaced with Problem Child a song that already appeared on both versions of ...more
Yes even the Beatles studio albums are confusing, because not every album by the Beatles was released everywhere, some only in the UK, their album titled "The Beatles Second Album" was the 3rd studio album released in the USA.
They seem normal untill you get to QR III (Quiet Riot III) which is their 5th album, but most people didn't know the first 2 Quiet Riot albums existed because they were only released in Japan, then you get to QR (Quiet Riot) now they have 2 self titled albums, then there is Quiet Riot 10 which is their 12th album.
They have many albums titled Chicago [Insert number here] but if you only go by studio albums, you will realize some numbers are skipped it's because these numbers appeared on compilation albums.
They have 4 self titled albums, some people just use the color of the album cover and just call it by that (Ex. The Red Album)
UPDATE: They will have 5 self titled albums now they annonced a 5th one it is the Black Album
In 2010 they released a self titled album, in 2018 they are making a new album and what is it called?
The same thing as the 2010 album.
In 2000 they released a self titled album, in 2009 they did the same thing. They released 2 self titled albums in one decade.
Van Halen is mostly normal untill you get to Van Halen III which is not their 3rd album, it's their 11th.
Reminds me of how the Grand Theft Auto games were named. Grand Theft Auto, then Grand Theft Auto 2, then Grand Theft Auto 3, then vice city, then san andreas, and then 4? and then 5. There were some others in between a few as well. Basically the 5th one isn't the 5th and the 4th game isn't the 4th.
X (Roman Numeral for 10) is their 8th studio album
And those 2 self titled albums happen to be some of the bands best work
They have 2 self titled albums
The question is do you count Killing Machine and Hell Bent for Leather as one album (I do) or separate albums? They are basically the same album with the same album cover but with two names because one had to be changed to avoid controversy, they also both have different track listings.
2 self titled albums
Their are actually two different versions of Obssesed by Cruelty but other than that they are normal
In 2017 they re;leased a album called Dark Age, but the album is a rerecord of their first album.
