The 50 best rock albums of all time

We've taken a deep-dive into rock's most monumental moments to present you with the definitive list of the best rock albums of all time

It's a dirty job, but someone's got to do it. One of history's most fiercely-fought debates, picking the best rock albums is pretty much an impossible task. Everyone has their favourite; that special album that's guided them through life's good times and its bad, that musical hill they're absolutely willing to die on. Being objective is impossible – we all care too much about the music we love for that.

So, when pulling this list together, we opted for the most democratic course of action we could: a public vote. We asked people to vote for their favourite ever rock album, and we didn't restrict the options to a pre-defined list of titles we'd come up with over pints in the pub. You could add any album you liked.

The result is a list that represents a fair few old favourites – but are a few surprises in there, too; albums we probably wouldn't have assumed would make to Top 50. And it's made the results a lot more interesting.

Here, we present a selection of 50 albums that genuinely broke the mould.

Re: The 50 best rock albums of all time

I think this list has been posted here before.

There's some major oddball decisions on here. Way to much Iron Maiden for one thing. And a Faith No More album ahead of Nevermind, Rumors, Who's Next and other better albums?

edit: Just saw AC/DC's Powerage in the top 10. Definitely a joke list.

I've seen worst. Seems to lean a little toward 'metal'.
There are 10 types of people in this world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.

Exclamation Re: The 50 best rock albums of all time

I'll put it this way. Yes, there are some good albums on the list, e.g the Pink Floyd, Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple LPs in the top twenty.

The list nonetheless is full of LPs that are not to my taste and my own collection will happily remain without most of the albums on it.

The top rock 'n roll animal on this side of the tracks!
