It's called "trying to be fair and unbiased". Whoever did that took account of all the most popular kinds of music to please whoever would be most likely to watch it.
Where you going riding, boy?

OK Computer is definitely not no.1
And where's Who's Next.

Whoever made this list is a total ******.

Alanis Morrisette and Eminem and all those other ****ty artists are way over ranked

once again lists suck, this one is quite special because it is not really a rock album list and as this site is a guitar one we have much inquiry.
Gibson 58 VOS, Gibson Rich Robinson ES-335, Fender Strat, Fender RoadWorn 50's Tele, Gibson LP Jr Special

Marshall JTM45, Fender BJR NOS

If you wanna see any charts in rock n roll or anythin I go to www.digitaldreamdoor.com they got way better lists *nothing official*.
I'd love to change the world, but I don't know what to do, so I'll leave it up to you....

Are you Superbad???

This list is about the only "greatest album" lists I agree with although I would put Dark Side of The Moon alittle higher.
