Motorhead = Win.


Man, Motorhead has been getting alot of mentions lately.

but the music sucks because the keyboards don't have the cold/mechanical sound they had but a wannabe techno sound that it's pathetic for Rammstein standars.

I would definitely have to go with the Wall.  It's really hard to do that album justice.  Its the concept album to define concept albums.  If it was released today, it would probably bomb and then throughout the years become known as a classic.  And an album like that will never 1) be duplicated and 2) never experience the cultural and commercial success that it did.  And there are maybe 1 or 2 bands out there with the cajones to actually try something like that.  The one that I can think of, and this is an easy comparison, is Radiohead.  Other then that...I don't know.  I mean the guys built a frickin wall ON STAGE when they played it live!  The world and fans are way to fickle to appreciate something like that nowadays.

/end rant

2nd would be Rumours...beautiful!

It's Led ZEPPELIN.  ZEPPELIN DAMMIT!  I'm sorry, it really gets on my nerves that no one can fucking spell Led Zeppelin, despite the fact that most people them.

Motorhead, definitely.  Followed by Led Zep.

Easy.  I own one and only one of those albums: Master of Puppets.

I might consider getting Help!, but only after aquiring many other Beatles albums.  The rest I have no interest in at all.

Tough choice between Zeppelin and Deep Purple... but I had to go with Deep Purple because I actually bought it myself.  Zeppelin I just stole from my parents.

Led Zeppelin, por favor.

Still, when I hear the words 'retro' and 'rock', I always think of MC5, so I'd actually want Back in the USA.

It was a tough choice between the metallica, pink floyd and fleetwood mac, but in the end, Pink Floyd got my vote.

The Wall, most definitely. Zeppelin is the shit, but they never had a Wall.
