Classic Rock Bottom

We have kind of let this thread die, so let's bring it back to life.  Let's have everyone chime in on their Top 5 Debut Rock Albums of all-time.  There's only two rules:

1. Must be an artist's debut album.

2. Must be a rock album (no R&R, Rap, Country or Gospel).  You guys know what I mean, I don't have to explain it further, right?

Here's mine to kick it off:

1. Van Halen - Van Halen

2. Guns N Roses - Appetite For Destruction

3. Boston - Boston

4. Heart - Dreamboat Annie

5. Lynyrd Skynyrd - (Pronounced Leh-Nerd Skin-Nerd)

1. Cheap Trick - Cheap Trick
2. Van Halen - Van Halen
3. Guns'N'Roses - Appetite For Destruction
4. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin
5. Ten - Pearl Jam

Ten was on my short list.  And I absolutely knew Zeppelin's debut would be on your list.

1. Van Halen--Van Halen

2. The Doors--The Doors

3. Metallica--Kill 'Em All

4. The Jimi Hendrix Experience--Are You Experienced

5. The Cars--The Cars

For me these are the top 5...

1 - Van Halen
2 - Christopher Cross
3 - Foreigner
4 - Boston
5 - The Cars

You and Jon both had the Cars...they were also on my short list.  I had a hard time choosing between Skynyrd and Foreigner for the 5th spot.

Foreigner is very special album for me, tons of sentimental value!

Is Christopher Cross allowed? It's not a band.



The rules do not forbid solo artists.  Did you even read them Jon?  The only possible rules violation would be whether or not he was a rock act...but I say he's easy listening rock, so it shall be allowed.

Oh, I'm sorry. I misread it as saying "Must be an bands debut album" but it appears I don't know how to read.

That's right...and my edit button doesn't work, so there's absolutely no way I could have edited it...
