The Top Ten

1 Smash - The Offspring

One of the albums that brought punk to fame in '94!

The album that changed a punk rocker's life.

Raw and unique sound that has changed the lives of many people, including mine

Great album, but definitely not more important than anything on this list.

2 Abbey Road - The Beatles

Voted this album to overtake the offspring's smash as the number one on this list

3 Chuck Berry is on Top - Chuck Berry

Is basically because of the song " Johnny B. Goode". - zxm

4 In Rock - Deep Purple

I am a metalhead who likes fast metal subgenres and for this reason it's the most important album to me. - Metal_Treasure

First album to create the pure punk rock riffs. - zxm

12 Suffer - Bad Religion

Biggest step in the punk rock cene of USA.

13 The Doors - The Doors

Essential Rush!

Classic!

15 Raw Power - Iggy & the Stooges
16 A Night at the Opera - Queen
17 Stained Class - Judas Priest
