Top 10 Music Albums that Were Re-Recorded

Re-recorded versions are when the band members play the songs again in the studio, sometimes it's even with different band members. Sometimes the bands change the original title of the album.

Remixed and Remastered album versions don't count - this is done by sound engineers and the band members don't play again.
