4 Slippery When Wet - Bon Jovi V 1 Comment
5 Ok Computer - Radiohead

One of the all-time greatest Albums ever! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

6 Phobia - Breaking Benjamin V 1 Comment
7 In Utero - Nirvana

In Utero had some of the most unique tracks and recording effects, as well as raw emotion from Kurt Cobain. The album theme itself comes from Mr. Cobain's troubled mind, and it puts out so much energy and emotion, it's just plain aesthetic every time you hear the album. - prolists

The Contenders

11 Ten Thousand Fists - Disturbed

13 Dookie - Green Day

Do you have the time to listen to me whine about why dookie is the best one? I know it was a stupid parody but basket case is a great song and there are a bunch of other great songs on here like she and welcome to paradise and dookie is simply the best - nickdoritosyum

This is my favorite album by Coldplay. I love how they put the Baudot code on it. This is the reason I'm learning the Baudot code. - Merilille
