The Contenders: Page 10

181 Toys in the Attic - Aerosmith
182 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
183 Mirrorball - Def Leppard
184 This Is War - 30 Seconds to Mars

BEST BAND AND BEST ALBUM EVER. THEY DESERVE THE FIRST PLACE. They're epic and they're cult. Echelon vote! For Jared, Shannon and Tomo!

185 Vulture Street - Powderfinger
186 Vs. - Pearl Jam
187 Re-Load - Metallica
188 Rage Against the Machine - Rage Against the Machine
189 Throwing Copper - Live
190 Audioslave - Audioslave
191 All That You Can't Leave Behind - U2
192 Elephant - The White Stripes
193 Permanent Waves - Rush
194 Live and Dangerous - Thin Lizzy

Best album ever made. A band at their height and totally on form. There's some debate over how much of it was live but the end product was outta this world.

195 Masters of Reality - Black Sabbath

Well.. Sabbath, not much more to say there. My favourite of their albums. Doom and gloom and the first. My favourite Metal album.

196 God Hates Us All - Slayer

Slayer are difficult because they make an album and some tracks are good and some are kinda average. I would have gone for South of Heaven soley because of the title track and Mandatory Suicide (my favourite Slayer song) but thought the rest of that album was just "There". Chose this one because at the end of the day Slayer are in your face and this album does just that.

197 Among the Living - Anthrax

First time I heard this album I was like!? Total Headbang and Total Mosh. Indians is my favourite track off of it. (Even though the intro sounds a bit like Pasage to Bangkok by Rush. )

198 Warrior on the Edge of Time - Hawkwind

What a band, even through all the line up changes they keep delivering. Without Hawkwind there would be no Motorhead. Chose this one because it's total "Space Rock" Lemmy on bass and Dave Brock the Captain in fine form. For anyone that doesn't know Hawkwind, get this album. Get stoned, drunk or niether, you'll love it anyway.

199 Counterparts - Rush

Best Prog Rock band in the world. They've done so many good albums it's hard to chose. Gone for this one because it's so consistent.

200 Piece of Mind - Iron Maiden

Not really into Maiden, seen them three times and they do a good show, kinda find them a bit too much repetative, kinda boring. However they are probably the most influencel Metal band since Sabbath. My favourite album of their's and a great album it is.
