Bloody Nirvana AGAIN. And I like The Beatles as much as the next guy but I just can't count them as Rock. It's rock n' roll and to me there's a differance. It was all rock n' roll 'til the Stones came along... Apart from that I can't really disagree coz I hav'nt got alot of those albums.

Nirvana was good, but sure not THAT good.

I think The Velvet Underground is way much more overated than Nirvana though.

Oasis, Smashing Pumpkins and Muse higher than "In Rock" Deep Purple- that's a laugh!!!! And where the hell is "Machine Head"...? How about "Master Of Reality"? "Wish You Were Here"? "The Wall" lower than two Nirvana's albums... A joke, as usual with those polls...

The fact that 'The Strokes' is listed is also a fuckin' joke.

Well, I think that we shouldn't take so seriously these listings. Don't forget they've at least been done by people, and everybody has variety of tastes. Don't get so mad.
The day there's a mundial vote then I'll take seriously this thing.

By now, there isn't anything written about tastes.

I prefer Origin Of Symmetry to Absolution, personally... Absolution has some really awesome songs on it though. So yay for Muse \m/

I'll be the first to say it: Great how ADATR is on the list and not ANATO. Nothing against 'Opera' but it gets far too much mention. Nice to see 'Races' getting some attention for a change. It's my favorite of the 70s albums.

You certainly aren't alone. All this Kurt deification has almost driven my to the point where I'd be tempted to strangle the next person I see wearing a Nirvana t-shirt.
Though, chances are the victim would be about five years old, so maybe I'll pass.

[NOTE TO SELF: This is a Queen board. Not a Nirvana board]

So... to make this more Queen-related, I'm also glad to see ADATR on the list, instead of ANATO. I most definitely prefer the former.
