Best Self-Titled Rock Band Albums

These albums had the same name as the artist that made it, that simple.

The Top Ten

1 Avenged Sevenfold

With all due respect to Rage Against the Machine, this is the best. This has Afterlife, A Little Piece of Heaven, Almost Easy, Gunslinger, Critical Acclaim, Scream, and Dear God. RATM has Killing in the Name, Wake Up, and Bombtrack. If RATM had Bulls on Parade, then it would be better.

2 Metallica

This said rock band but whatever - Lucretia

No disrespect to A7X, I like them, but if it weren't for this album they would probably be stuck as suburban tattoo artists. - lavashooter

3 Black Sabbath Black Sabbath are a Heavy Metal band formed in Birmingham, England in 1968 by guitarist and songwriter Tony Iommi, Singer Ozzy Osbourne, Bassist and Main Lyricist Geezer Butler and Drummer Bill Ward . The band got into mainstream after improving after their debut album got negative feedback . In 1978, more.

This is the album that started metal! - Sabbath

4 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition more.

I know their were many acts of plagiarism in this album, but that will not stop me from enjoying this album. - Powerfultekin

Definitely my favorite, being the Led Zep but I am. - MontyPython

Led Zeppelin plagiarism started with their debut album:
1. I Can't Quit You Baby - uncredited cover of Willie Dixon's I Can't Quit You Baby (the song was credited back to him)
2. You Shook Me - uncredited cover of Willie Dixon' You Shook Me (credited back to him)
3. Dazed and Confused - uncredited cover of Jake Holme's Dazed and Confused
4. Babe I'm Gonna Leave You - uncredited cover of Joan Baez's Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, originally by Anne Bredon
5. How Many More Times - a ripoff of Howlin’ Wolf's How Many More Years and Albert King's The Hunter
6. Communication Breakdown - very reminiscent of Eddie Cochran's Nervous Breakdown
So this isn't really a Led Zeppelin album, it's a fake album... - Metal_Treasure
