Greatest Debut Album for a Band

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Morbid Angel - Altars of Madness
22 Show No Mercy - Slayer

Should be way higher - imabigpotato

23 King Crimson - In the Court of the Crimson King

It should be number 1 for sure - ChameleonKing

Gun N' Roses number one?! What?! Hahaaahaha! In the Court of the Crimson King is such a better album musically, creatively, influentially, and lyrically. I have no idea why people love Gun N' Roses so much. I used to love them when I was 14, and there was a guy who knew a lot about music who told me they were garbage. I didn't believe him, but now that I'm older, and I appreciate music so much more, I realize he was right. This, however, is true music. The firsr track on this album alone out-rocks anything Gun N' Roses ever did.

In the Court of the Crimson Kiing Aaah, I love this track of the album

24 Arcade Fire - Funeral

Certainly better than Guns N' Roses

25 Blizzard of Ozz - Ozzy Osbourne
26 The Allman Brothers Band - The Allman Brothers Band
27 Slipknot - Slipknot
28 The Cars - The Cars

Growing up in the 80's we all had a couple songs from this album in our tape player. A true legacy to this album is that songs are still played at sporting events and functions some 35 years later! A great debut album, a great band... Wake up Rock N Roll Hall of Fame!

29 Adema - Adema
30 Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine

It's already on here.

31 30 Seconds to Mars - 30 Seconds to Mars

This album was never given a chance, I only had to listen to it once and I was hooked. Listen to songs such as 'Capricorn (A Brand New Name)' 'Welcome To The Universe' and 'Buddha For Mary' they're amazing.

32 Bleach - Nirvana

I think this album deserves to be higher than it is

The beginning of nirvana. even if nirvana kept going with the angry grunge rock, this is a great album

33 Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not

I was really going for something more sophisticated than Arctic Monkeys, but "Whatever... " is truly a future debut classic. - Ekolod

34 Remission - Mastodon
35 Is This It? - The Strokes

Great from start to finish, with a similar but refreshing sound. All these songs are great and I don't know why it's so low

Pure brilliance from start to finish. Love the strokes!

Best album of the 21st century!

Top 10 easily.

36 The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico

49? In my opinion, this has to be at number 5! - Mumbizz01


37 #1 Record - Big Star
38 Weezer - The Blue Album

Never found such a perfect listen in my entire life. This Album is amazing. "Say it Ain't So", "Undone (The Sweater Sonf)", and "Buddy Holly" may be the most recognized songs from this album, but if you want more of that Weezer style rock, check out the rest of this album. You won't regret it, I can guarantee.

so God

39 Mind Funk - Mind Funk
40 System of a Down - System of a Down

I love how they started off their music career with a dark, grungy, heavy sound. And they continue to carry it on with their other albums.
