Greatest Debut Album for a Band

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Adema - Adema
22 Alice in Chains - Facelift

Amazing album, 1 of the best grunge albums ever - RustyNail

23 Slipknot - Slipknot
24 Show No Mercy - Slayer
25 The Allman Brothers Band - The Allman Brothers Band
26 Arcade Fire - Funeral

Certainly better than Guns N' Roses

27 Morbid Angel - Altars of Madness
28 Blizzard of Ozz - Ozzy Osbourne
29 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.

30 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.

31 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!

32 Alice in Hell - Annihilator
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 Disturbed - The Sickness

HOW WAS THIS NOT ON THE LIST! This is one of the best albums ever released, let alone as a debut album. Not as good a Metallica or Led Zeppelin, but it most certainly deserves to be in the top ten. - Potato1029

35 Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine

It's already on here.

36 Scream Bloody Gore - Death
37 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

38 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.

39 AC/DC - High Voltage

Why isn't this higher? "TNT" and "It's A Long Way To The Top" are on this album?

40 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!
