    Time for another music list for the board cynics and musical vultures to pick apart?

    The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has a list of the 200 Definitive Albums, which I'll make the leap to infer 'best'.


    Lots of love for the Dixie Chicks and Eminem. And soundtracks, too. Grease at 37? Footloose at 140? Say what?

    Not much love for REM and Tom Petty.

    A lot to pick on, but I'll leave some meat for the rest of the board. Will throw out just a few:

    Overrated: Santana, 'Supernatural' at #13. And 'Sgt. Peppers at #1--hype over substance.

    Undervalued: Zeppelin, 'Physical Graffiti at #93 & EJ, 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' at #118.

    No Creedence Clearwater Revival but 50 cents and the Dixie Chicks on a "Rock and Roll top 200" - Green River was very influential to Southern Rock genre.

    at least they did not make you click through 5 pages to view entire list.

    Nora Jones, Shania Twain, Whitney Houston. Yeah, they rock real hard.
  5. I submit this list was written by the producers of "American Idol" during a 3 day crack binge.

    It looks to be driven more by hype/pop chart record sales than substance or influence.

    Shania F'ing Twain's "Come On Over" as the #21 "Definitive" album?

    "Revolver" at #42. "London Calling" at #96 (followed by Celine Dion's "Falling Into You" at #97). Here are a few that ranked higher than Revolver: the Soundtrack to Grease (#37), Def Leppard "Hysteria" (#36), Dixie Chicks (#33), Outkast (#29), Norah Frickin' Jones? (#27), & Alanis Morissette (#26).

    P.S. Andrea Bocelli's on the list at #194. Avril Lavigne's at #162. And Public Enemy's Nation of Millions was ranked 156, two spots behind Will Smith's "Big Willie Style."

    Flat-out insane.

    The Doors' debut album is my personal favorite, so I think it should be higher. What an awesome, awesome album.

    That's a ridiculous list. First of all, define "definitive", and how can a a complilation soundtrack such as Forrest Gump (Christ, if you are goign to choose a soundtrack from that year, Pulp Fiction would be better) be definitive.

    "The Doors are revolutionary music for the Pop Tarts crowd. Morrison was lame-ass film school dilettante. How their album be ahead of "Who's Next?"

    How the fuck can any list of definative music have Avril Lavigne and Celine Dion on it? Avril Lavigne...you know that chick's name is April Levin and they just roughed it up to make her sound "cool".
  11. Music From Big Pink?
    Blonde On Blonde?

    Hello? Hello? Is this thing on? Hello?

    Absurd. Not even sure what this list is. It's not a rock list.
