The Top Ten

1 Nevermind - Nirvana

Smells like teen spirit is on bleach what are you talking about lord28 - ugandanknuckles

This should be number 1 on every list that says overrated on it - christangrant

Get this off the list! Every Nirvana song is great(apart from dumb)but Nevermind is a beautiful class of its own.Smells Like Teen Spirit and Breed are about rocking out.Polly and Something in the Way are gentle acoustic tunes.Lithium and In Bloom have Choruses that stick in your head for days and come as you are is just a masterpeice. - Lord28

2 Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park

Should be number 1.

3 Fallen - Evanescence
4 Dookie - Green Day
5 Sounding the Seventh Trumpet - Avenged Sevenfold
6 The Poison - Bullet for My Valentine
7 Iowa - Slipknot
8 American Idiot - Green Day

None of these albums are overrated as Nevermind by Nirvana - zxm

10 Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water - Limp Bizkit

The Contenders

11 Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin
12 Avenged Sevenfold - Avenged Sevenfold
