Best Rock Albums of 2012

The Top Ten
1 Living Things - Linkin Park Living Things - Linkin Park Product Image

Rap is not bad for rock
It actually one the reason they have great song

Not their best work but still awesome!

Really like this album.

2 The Strange Case Of... - Halestorm The Strange Case Of... - Halestorm Product Image

What The Hell Are Talking About... Al You Crazy People Linkin Park Album Was Not Up To The Mark... With Only One oR 2Good Songs... But This Album Is Full OF Hitzz... Thwe Best Of 2012 No Doubt. Please Vote For It. Grammy Award Winner

3 Amaryllis - Shinedown Amaryllis - Shinedown Product Image

Let me say that this is my least favorite Shinedown album, and I like Living Things better (than this album), but I like Shinedown enough to give my vote to Amaryllis instead of adding another vote to Living Things to keep it at spot #1.

This is a though one because my three favorite albums of the year are all in the top three but this albums are just that bit more positive.

The best album so far this year but there is still more albums coming
Waiting for Metallica

4 Transit of Venus - Three Days Grace Transit of Venus - Three Days Grace Product Image

The Goodbye album for Adam Gontier.. Nobody's voice will come even close

Best album hands down

5 The Connection - Papa Roach The Connection - Papa Roach Product Image

What is the connection doing on the 7th place?
It should be at least 4... It is the best papa roach album and the screams of shaddix and the heavy riffs of jerry horton, with powerful bass background of tobin makes the album perfect for a rock lover, and also for people new to the modern rock world... And of course the drumming is excellent, palermo fills in every gap of silence with his all-too-perfect drumming... Songs like before I die, silence is the enemy and wont let up... Are the marks of today's modern rock music... I love papa roach for what they are, and I know this is their best album by now... And I am highly dissapointed that it is the 7th best of 2012... I think the raters might not have listened to the album properly... The lyrics on the album will probably leave a listener dumbfound... I rate this album 4 and a half stars... Vote for the ones who deserve it... And papa roach is one of them...

Such an awesome album
How can this album is not at the top!
This album has Rock, Rap and litte elctronic
What else do you need
PR rules!
