Top 10 Rock and Metal Albums that are the Best of a Genre

The Top Ten

1 The Dark Side of the Moon -  Pink Floyd (Progressive Rock)

I would say Animals or Atom Heart Mother is more prog rock than this. - BrianScott01

There should only be 2...wot - AlphaQ

2 Vulgar Display of Power - Pantera (Groove Metal)
3 Back in Black - AC/DC (Hard Rock)

The only album on this list that I can agree with. It's truly the best Hard Rock album, perfect from start to finish. - IronMaidenFan666

4 At the Edge of Time - Blind Guardian (Symphonic Metal)
5 Ride the Lightning - Metallica (Thrash Metal)

Kreator did much better albums, Slayer and Sodom too. Metallica are not the only Thrash band, the German bands are much better than them. - IronMaidenFan666

Amazing thrrash music!, Fans must own this album, - VideoGamefan5

6 Alice in Hell - Annihilator (Technical Thrash Metal)

Yes, the best of this subgenre ever. - Metal_Treasure

7 American Idiot - Green Day (Pop Punk)
8 Nightfall in Middle-Earth - Blind Guardian (Power Metal)
9 Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden (Heavy Metal)
10 Nevermind - Nirvana (Grunge)

Ha almost every other Grunge album is better than this one heck even In Utero is better than this - christangrant

YAS


This is better than any album released in the 90s except maybe American Football - ProPanda

The Contenders

11 Painkiller - Judas Priest (Traditional Heavy Metal)
12 Annihilation of the Wicked - Nile (Technical Death Metal)
13 Powerslave - Iron Maiden (Traditional Heavy Metal)
14 Symbolic - Death (Death Metal)
15 Badmotorfinger - Soundgarden (Grunge)

The only grunge album I like more than Dirt oh and its way better than Nevermind - christangrant

I like Soundgarden as much as the next guy, but there's no way that Badmotorfinger is a better album than Nevermind. - phillysports

16 De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas - Mayhem (Black Metal)
17 Ramones - Ramones (Punk Rock)
18 Rust in Peace - Megadeth (Thrash Metal)
19 Ok Computer - Radiohead (Alternative Rock)

I heard that Kid A is better than this album but I don't really know since I'm not a Radiohead fan - christangrant

Kid A is more Electronic influenced. Ok Computer is straight up Alternative Rock and one of the best of the genre. - cjWriter1997

20 Hybrid Theory - Linkin Park (Nu Metal)

Linkin Park isn't Nu Metal or Metal especially when you consider their latest album - christangrant
