show me: Abbey road not in top ten = FAIL.
Lorelle: Subby is correct. Hendrix should have been #1, and the rap shiat doesn't even belong on the list.
Paleorific: Top ten are all worthy. If you are not familiar with those albums... sorry. My fave of the top 10 is Horses. Not only in my top ten debut albums but I would put Gloria in the top ten of Debut songs on debut albums. Least favorite of thir top 10 would be GnR.
kasmel: TheJoe03: Lorelle: Rap isn't progressive; if anything, it's regressive. Ever watch Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom? The cavemen were light years ahead of rappers.You have almost have no knowledge of the genre or who is considered talented within it, so your opinion of it is pretty irrelevant. It is basically the last real innovation in music in the last 30 years. The instrumental aspect of it has had a massive influence on production and has always had a more futuristic vibe than rock has had in the last 30. Rapping is now considered a legit vocal form, and rapping at its finest is harder to write than any rock song. You wouldn't know that because you don't know shiat about hip hop culture because you are old, ignorant, and out of touch.Normally I would stay out of this argument because I don't have that strong an opinion either way. That, regardless of how atonal and absurd many things some people miscategorize as 'music'But this, "you don't know shiat about hip hop culture ". Really? You're seriously going to try to assertculturenow? Are you farking kidding me? Is a cultural rite of passage piercing your ear drums? Asserting culture for hip-hop is seriously farking ridiculous. That's like calling the latest stupid teen craze culture. Hip-hop music is no more culture than snap bracelets or tamagotchi. They can congratulate each other and give each other awards and accolades for puking to autotune and synth drums all they want and I could really care less. I don't have to listen to it so I really don't care if anyone else does or whether or not they enjoy it.You could call it a literary movement or artistic tradition even, that at least has SOME accuracy. You could say that hip-hop is like Dada, although pretty sure punk already fits that description./So I guess that makes Rap the new beatniks?//Rhyming and sounding stupid to everyone who's not stoned?///slashies for mostly joking about the beatnik part
pimpnutz: Lorelle I'd love to see you put together 16 cohesive bars that rhyme and fit them to a beat that you produced yourself. sure, theres no talent involved at all..
TheJoe03: Good job proving how ignorant you are of hip-hop culture, honestly...
Lorelle: Anyone who thinks that gangbangers and other lowlifes who yammer endlessly about biatches and hoes and killing cops (because they sure as heck CAN'T SING), STEAL music from REAL artists because they can't write their own tunes, and can't play musical instruments are on the same level as people who can actually write music, play an instrument, and carry a tune is a moran, IMHO.I find it amusing that some of you actually pay to see these people stand on a stage and do nothing but cuss and throw stupid gang signs. Will you be willing to shell out $$$ to see them do the same thing thirty years from now?
L.D. Ablo: Lorelle: Subby is correct. Hendrix should have been #1, and the rap shiat doesn't even belong on the list.Well, yes.I might take rap seriously if they started writing their own hooks and playing instruments.

yelmrog: RATM's first release only made #85?Jeez.
FirstNationalBastard: Wait a minute, crappy rap in the top 20, but no Meatloaf?
rickythepenguin: Mr. Chainsaw: Ha, I didn't mean they picked the wrong Beastie Boys album because...duh, but that it was an odd pick for #1.ok. the way you said it though -- "because of what they'd become" -- reads as if you thought another BB album should have been poicked.
