The Top Ten

1 American Idiot - Green Day

Green Day made punk popular (along with Blink-182 of course), and this album is AWESOME!

2 In Rainbows - Radiohead

#4? That hurts.

3 Funeral - Arcade Fire
4 Kid A - Radiohead

It was between this, Is this it, Funeral and Elephant, but this needs to be at the top. I mean, guys, it's Kid A! - Donut

One of the best albums since 2000 - Magnolia

American Idiot? *facepalm* This is one of the greatest album of all time! (in my humble opinion)

5 Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not - Arctic Monkeys

Very decent debut album - Magnolia

6 Is This It - The Strokes

One of the best rock album of the decade easily. Every song is great. Other top albums in my opinion are In rainbows, a rush of blood to the head, kid a and viva la vida

7 Elephant - The White Stripes
8 Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park

Combine Mike's rap vocals with Chester's aggressive screams and you get a masterpiece. How is this not even in the top 5?

9 Songs for the Deaf - Queens of the Stone Age

It rocks. That's all there is to it.

10 A Rush of Blood to the Head - Coldplay

The Contenders

11 Yankee Hotel Foxtrot - Wilco

This album is just, WOW. Wilco is so underrated. This is an album everyone should have in their collection. Poor Places, Ashes of American Flags, Jesus etc.. I mean, Come On, this is just brilliant. Jeff Tweedy is a genius man.

One of the greatest Alternative Rock albums of the past decade.

12 The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

I can't believe this one it at 48? It deserves to be in the top 10

What the hell is this masterpiece doing all the way down here?

13 Stadium Arcadium - Red Hot Chili Peppers
14 Fallen - Evanescence
15 Demon Days - Gorillaz
16 Hot Fuss - The Killers
17 Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots - The Flaming Lips
18 White Blood Cells - The White Stripes
19 Viva la Vida - Coldplay
20 Absolution - Muse

Should be much higher. I'm talking top 10

Wow... Way to underrated!
Should be top 10, at least!

This album is a modern rock classic!

21 The Sickness - Disturbed

Listen Down With The Sickness, Voices and Stupify. I think The Sickness shouldn't be 61 - Disturbedpotato
