The Top Ten

Judas Priest's album Firepower released Judas Priest's album Firepower released Product Image

Their Best Album since Painkiller and its easily a top 5 Judas Priest Album.

I love this album!

Hell yeah! Metal will never die!

The key members of Judas Priest are in their 60s and they still rock. Rob Halford is 67 and his voice sounds pretty good.

Bohemian Rhapsody (film) released Bohemian Rhapsody (film) released Product Image

This was a great movie, but it got more awards than it deserved and it made the song Bohemian Rhapsody more overrated than it already is.

Yup, I loved it, this is coming from a Queen fan. The person playing Freddie was amazing and so was the man playing Brian May. Can I also just add that the guy playing Roger Taylor in this movie was hotter than hell?

And then there's that nonsensical song with the same title released the same year

Really good movie. I highly recommend it.

Dire Straits inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Dire Straits is great. - Userguy44

Kendrick Lamar honored with a Pulitzer Prize for his album "DAMN"

First Bob Dylan who won the Literature Nobel Prize, now Kendrick won the Pulitzer Prize. It's awesome that worldwide they get more open minded and also consider sections that aren't part of traditional expectations but are publically acclaimed.

As far as I know he's the first rapper to win a Pulitzer Prize

YAY.Kendrick is the best rapper.

Demi Lovato survived drug overdose

Yes it was great that Demi survived but it was also very unfortunate that she overdosed in the first place I guess that is being negative but that's how I see it. - Powell

I'm not a big fan, but she does have a good voice so I'm happy. - XxembermasterxX

I don't mind her, but good that she survived. - Userguy44

Well deserved.

The Moody Blues get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

This was a big victory for their fans, especially because they've been eligible since 1990. It's also a victory for prog rock in general because the Moodies are seen as one of the most important acts in its development. - Gg2000

I love the Moody Blues, and I waited so long for this. Each year, sister and I would quote the Spotted Elephant: "Looks like we're forgotten again." Now, the Moodies got in...sigh of ecstasy... - Crwth

King Crimson now. Please? - JoLeKosovo

6ix9ine arrested

Thank God he's arrested.


Bon Jovi inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Well deserved!

Finally for ma second favorite band of all time!

I’m glad this happened.

Amazing! Well done boys 👍

Radiohead inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

They are much more deserving of this honor than Bon Jovi.

YES - DarkBoi-X

Post Malone didn’t die

He must be very accident prone to have all of this happen in one year. Basically I have the same comment for him as for Demi Lovato.

I'm not his fan, like not at all, but unlike some people I don't feel happy when an artist I don't like dies or is in trouble.
In 2018 Post Malone was involved in a car accident and plane crash, and was the target of a robbery. But thankfully, he survived.

The Contenders

In August 2018, the Eagles' compilation album of 1976, "Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975", surpassed Michael Jackson's "Thriller" as the best selling album of all time

The Recording Industry Association of America certified the album 38-times platinum, meaning it's sold 38 million copies worldwide. The Eagles had held this honor before but Michael Jackson's death increased the

demand for his album "Thriller" and temporarily knocked the Eagles out of the No. 1 spot. Well, the Eagles

are back. Symbolically, rock music is back, too. I know that's good from my viewpoint though - because I prefer rock over pop. But I also know that many people prefer pop over rock so... - Metal_Treasure

NOTE: only in the US though. Internationally, it is still "Thriller". - Martin_Canine

Cher's album Dancing Queen released Cher's album Dancing Queen released Product Image

This is her 26th studio album and she still sounds great at 72. The album features covers of ABBA songs. - Metal_Treasure

Eminem Releases the Legendary Diss Track "Killshot"
Lil Meerkat Releases His Debut Mixtape "Weeaboo Paradise, Vol. 1"

That album cover even has a Sonic body pillow where he makes does the “come here” finger while laying down. - PhoenixAura81

Obscura's Album Diluvium Released Obscura's Album Diluvium Released Product Image

Time to add my personal favorite music moment of #22 - Metal_Treasure

Nicki Minaj and Cardi B Had a Fight

They only fight because they are so much a like n they hate that they could get along just fine if they got to know each other there so a like

Where can I find a video of this? 😂

Cardi B releases "Invasion of Privacy"
Twenty One Pilots releases their new album Trench after one year of hiatus
Ariana Grande's music video for "thank u, next" broke the record for most-watched music video on YouTube within 24 hours

For me, this is the most important music moment of 2018.

Eminem Drops Kamikaze
Drake's "In My Feelings" challenge dominated social media
Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V finally gets released after a five year delay
Cupcakke releases her music video for "Duck Duck Goose"
Helene Fischer appeared on Forbes' list of highest paid women in music of 2018

The German superstar came in eigth place, right behind Rihanna, and earned more than Céline Dion and Britney Spears. - Martin_Canine

"Platin war gestern" by Kollegah and Farid Bang topped the German, Austrian and Swiss charts

It's not just because an album I liked peaked at number 1, because it was THIS album. After the Echo scandal it felt absolutely necessary.

The biggest music award show of Germany, you could say the German Grammys, awarded the award for best national hip hop album to Kollegah's and Farid Bang's "Jung brutal gutaussehend 3" from last year, which was a blockbuster that sparked a number 1 hit and had all songs enter the German Top 50. It was also pretty damn good (although, in my opinion, both Cro and SpongeBozz had even better albums last year). Campino, the lead singer of the legendary German punk band Die Toten Hosen held a speech aimed at the two rappers because according to him, they crossed the line of what's acceptable (he meant Farid Bang's line "my body is more defined than that of Auschwitz inmates" from the bonus track "0815" off the deluxe edition - although the standard edition got the award). It caused so much public attention and ...more - Martin_Canine
