    Nevermind the list, I am amazed at some of what you guys are posting. If kurt Cobain would have never killed himself no one would have ever cared. Don't get me wrong Nevermind was a good album, not one of the greatest. Appetite For Destruction is perhaps on of the greatest albums ever. Does is still hold the record for highest selling debut album? Radiohead is just a cheap imitation of a band trying to be good and amazing, which brings me to saying that Pink FLoyd should have been so much higher. And Black Sabbath's first album shoudl have been #1. Of course this is just all my opnion, i hope no one takes offense to it.

    I will ignore that Radiohead comment and simply agree with the ridiculous snubbing of the Floyd.

    Looking through the list I think all of Nirvana's albums (minus their first, Bleach) are on the list. I don't get it. Nirvana was one of several bands to make a new sound popular but it seems that their legend is growing with every year since Coban killed himself. It's a good album but there are tons of albums listed below that which are more influencial and everlasting. How much influencing does Nirvana do now? None, IMHO.

    It should be ignored, especially since the comment comes from someone calling Appetite for Destruction one of the greatest albums ever, AND says that the first Black Sabbath album should have been the number one recorf on the list

    I think nothing by Nirvana, Tupac, or Notorious BIG would be remembered as "great" if everyone was still alive today.

    If it wasn't for Black Sabbath there would not be any metal or hard rock bands today. Simple as that. Guns N' Roses should be held high for finally saving the 80's out of the pop hair bands that called themselves rock. I mean I know they had the hair in the the video for Welcome to the Jungle, but that didn't last long.

    Hey, I like Black sabbath, but there is no way any album by them could be classified as better than Revolver, or the White Album. As for Heavy Metal, you could make the same claim about led Zeppelin. Hell, what aboiut MC 5, they predate Sabbath, If IRC...

    Guns and Roses WERE a hair metal band on that album. Again, I like GNR, but AFP just doesn't rank that high when you look at some of the competition.

    I understand where you're coming from, evenflow. Being a rock fan, you'd like to see the likes of Sabbath score higher on the list. I'm disappointed in AC/DC's position on the list. But, again, that's the rock fan speaking. I don't listen to hip hop, so I can't fathom why some of those albums are on there.

    I like my rock music, plain and simple. You would think an album like Master of Puppets would warrant a higher ranking on the list(Metallica fan or not, that's an excellent metal album and it's aging well).

    Those Beatles albums have stood the test of time, so that warrants them high positions. I'm not a Beatles fan by any means, but I can understand why they'd make the tops so many times.

    There's a lot of different genres of music to represent, and not everyone's going to be pleased with where their number one album ranks on someone else's list. Personally, I feel some albums on there are too high on the list. Maybe in 15 years when those bands fade out, their albums won't be so highly regarded.

    Maybe a list like this will look better for you evenflow:

    01. LED ZEPPELIN Led Zeppelin
    02. BLACK SABBATH Black Sabbath
    03. ALICE COOPER Welcome To My Nightmare
    04. THE BEACH BOYS Pet Sounds
    05. AEROSMITH Rocks
    06. MOTORHEAD Ace Of Spades
    07. VAN HALEN Van Halen
    08. LYNYRD SKYNYRD (Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd)
    09. UFO Strangers In The Night
    10. SOCIAL DISTORTION White Light, White Heat, White Trash

    That's a partial list of the albums one musician (guess who ) submitted to Rolling Stone when he was polled for this.

    I hear you, though, evenflow, on how the final 500 list seems to be lacking.

    Your list is a lot better than the RS list. Send it to them as a correction.

    I think it is funny how these essentially meaningless polls are taken so seriously by people! . For one thng, music is such a personal and important thing, it is bound to generate some ire! The thing is, to do a list like this justice, you need a broad spectrum of musical genres and as a general rule, although many people say they like "all sorts of music" it is unlikely that they will have Bounty Killer and Kate Bush (for example) standing shoulder to shoulder in their record collection. And if they do, chances are they will be more into Prog Rock than Dancehall Bashment, or vice versa.

    I am someone who lives for soul music, trad and new Rnb, some rap and the hip hop culture. From the posts above, I am looking at the names and thinking how I don't like the music from those groups. All the same, I don't take it so seriously to actually react with shock and irritation/frustration to see that Rahsaan Patterson, Musiq, Erykah Badu, Lauryn Hill or Timbaland are not mentioned above and probably not in the poll. I don't expect them to be, and I think making different genres of music essentially compete against each other in such a list is eminently worthless let alone pointless.

    What about symphonies recorded to vinyl or CD? Do they count? Something that was written by a child hundreds of years ago? Can anyone tell me if Mozart is in that list?

    I like some pretty unpopular things; Jar Jar Binks, for example. People slam SW OT and PT but I am happy that I love them all. I don't get on with Buffy, Smallville or Stargate SG-1 but that's fine with me. My brother loves SW and ST but I can't even bribe him to watch Farscape which I know he would love far more than ST if he ever saw it. RS's pollsters - musicians or not - are not an authority on what are classic albums and I think the responses here in this thread are valuable only inasmuch as we are all asserting who are our favourite artists; who we would have in our top 10
