On Wednesday, we posed you the question: What is the greatest "greatest hits" album of all time? And, like the troopers you are, you responded in droves to create Ultimate-Guitar’s top ten list of Greatest Hits albums. Your responses made reference to the good and the great... and for some reason Shaquille O'Neal...
Here is the full top ten list, along with the total number of votes for each entry:
10. Alice In Chains - "Music Bank"
9. Megadeth - "Greatest Hits: Back To The Start"
8. Pearl Jam - "Rearviewmirror"
7. Shaquille O'Neal - "The Best Of"
6. Bob Marley - "Legend"
5. The Beatles - "1"
4. Jimi Hendrix - "The Ultimate Experience"
3. Weird Al Yankovic - "The Essential Weird Al Yankovic"
2. Led Zeppelin - "Mothership"
1. Queen - "Greatest Hits"
It was the classic rock legends that dominated the list, with Queen’s "Greatest Hits" storming into the lead over Led Zeppelin’s "Mothership". "The Ultimate Experience" by Hendrix and "1" by The Beatles sat comfortably at 4 and, while grunge and metal made up the remainder with entries from Pearl Jam, Megadeth and Alice In Chains taking up slots 8,9 and 10.And, while we can’t fault the majority of your choices, oh faithful Ultimate-Guitar readers (even Weird Al we can see the merit in), we are slightly baffled by your insistence that Shaq’s Greatest Hits deserves slot number 7. We assume that the 51 users who voted for Shaq are also the only 51 people who have ever bought the album... Anyway, whether your voting for Shaq was ironic or not, we’re going to subject you to this video of him conducting the Boston Pops Orchestra... enjoy!
Thanks for voting guys. Don’t forget to check back next Wednesday for another question!
