4 Slippery When Wet - Bon Jovi
5 Phobia - Breaking Benjamin
6 Fever - Bullet for My Valentine
7 Ok Computer - Radiohead

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

8 Minutes to Midnight - Linkin Park
9 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

10 Badmotorfinger - Soundgarden

The Contenders

11 Ten Thousand Fists - Disturbed
12 Burnt Offerings - Iced Earth

Should be higher this heavy album kicks ass

13 There Is a Hell, Believe Me I've Seen It. There Is a Heaven, Let's Keep It a Secret - Bring Me the Horizon
14 Awake - Dream Theater
15 Planets - Adema
16 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

17 As the World Bleeds - Theocracy
18 Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen

If there only a way to get this to #1 faster... - RecklessGreed

19 The Black Parade - My Chemical Romance
20 X&Y - Coldplay

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
