let's get the whole Classic Rock forum community in on this and make........

a massive list of most INNOVATIVE/INFLUENTIAL classic rock albums of all time, can be just about anything from molly hatchet to pink floyd, live albums are permitted, but don't just make this about live bands

I'll start off by listing a few, if this list takes off, maybe someone, or myself can put them in some type of order (i.e. chronological, alphabetical, sub-genre, or whatever else would make sense....)

so I'll start, as of right now no order, and no this is not just albums you like, but albums that made the biggest differences in rock music, even a small difference as long as it bettered the genre

so list like 3-10 albums and just keep it going

Television - Marquees Moon

AC/DC - Powerage

The Ramones - The Ramones

Allman Bros - Eat a Peach
