101 The Pursuit Begins When This Portrayal of Life Ends - Evans Blue The Pursuit Begins When This Portrayal of Life Ends - Evans Blue
102 Toxicity - System of a Down Toxicity - System of a Down
103 War - U2 War - U2
104 Pump - Aerosmith Pump - Aerosmith
105 Faust - Faust Faust - Faust
106 Sticky Fingers - The Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers - The Rolling Stones
107 Infestissumam - Ghost B.C. Infestissumam - Ghost B.C.
108 In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson In the Court of the Crimson King - King Crimson

It is sad how little public interest there is in King Crimson. This album is absolute, raw perfection.

109 Smash - The Offspring Smash - The Offspring
110 Hysteria - Def Leppard Hysteria - Def Leppard V 1 Comment
111 The Joshua Tree - U2 The Joshua Tree - U2

The best album in rock music, I don't know how on earth it's this low. Are you kidding me? - ATiM

112 The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground and Nico The Velvet Underground & Nico - The Velvet Underground and Nico
113 London Calling - The Clash London Calling - The Clash

This album, with Velvet Underground and Nico, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, electric warrior, remain in light, my aim is true, transformer, and look sharp should be in the top ten!

Pioneers of punk. Amazing album and should be ahead of any Linkin Park, Green Day, or 30 seconds to mars albums.

114 Déjà Vu - Crosby Stills Nash & Young Déjà Vu - Crosby Stills Nash & Young
115 A Beautiful Lie - Thirty Seconds to Mars A Beautiful Lie - Thirty Seconds to Mars
116 Dirt - Alice In Chains Dirt - Alice In Chains
117 A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay
118 Boston - Boston Boston - Boston

Wow, I can't believe nobody has said anything about Boston, yet. Their first album defined music of the 70s. It took over music in 1976. This list is pretty sad.

119 Rust in Peace - Megadeth Rust in Peace - Megadeth

Hey, starts with Holy Wars. This whole album is just so good. Metal at it's best.

120 Hemispheres - Rush Hemispheres - Rush

This is an incredible masterpiece. The opening track is mind blowing. The following two carry the emotion, and the final instrumental piece is a journey. There is no bad moment on this album
