Entertainment Weekly has ranked 100 of the greatest albums ever in their latest issue, and quite a few rockers have made their list.
Nirvana ’s 1991 iconic album Nevermind comes in at #10, which the magazine notes “conquered mainstream America, destroyed hair metal and defined a generation.” U2 made the tally as well, coming in at #23 with 1991’s Achtung Baby , which EW says was a game changer for the band where they “ripped up the rule book and assembled a dozen songs that rattle, hum and pop.”
Rounding out the first half of the list is Guns N’ Roses ’ Appetite for Destruction at #32, Pink Floyd ’s Dark Side of the Moon at #37, AC/DC ’s Back in Black at #42 and Radiohead ’s OK Computer at #45.
