    This list pretty much blows so far. "Socialized Hate" by Atrophy needs to be on there instead of losers like Machine Head and Ghost. Your readers suck.

    Finally, this list has one that is worthy. And Machine Head blows, especially their politically correct whiner who bitches about dumb shit…

      Yeah Robb Flynn is one of the biggest trend whore posers in the history of metal. I do like the first two MH albums but I have no respect for Robb Flynn,

    Dafuq? An actual classic?

  • basshole

    There you go! Jesus..

  • Dea1

    Whoa fuck an actual metal album that came out before 1994 on this list?!?

    Surely must be an error. Maybe it was meant to be Limp Bizkit's Three Dollar Bill, Y'all but the editor developed dyslexia and read it as Holy Diver.
