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)

Revising for "Whistleblower Jon" ...

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

You did not have to revise, so I need to know which top 5 you are going with.

1 - Appetite - G n R

2 - Van Halen

3 - Boston

4- Ted Nugent (his debut as a solo artist. If he does not count because of his Amboy Dukes records, then 4th place goes to Tesla)

5 - Mechanincal Resonance - Tesla (or if Ted Nugent not allowed, then Starz is in 5th place.)

Nugents solo debut should qualify, and it's a solid pick!!
Original list then.

Christopher Cross!!? Really? ...Okay, I'm gonna have to go listen...

Van Halen

Led Zeppelin

The Pretenders


The Cars

Never heard the Pretenders debut. Would live to though. Is it the same album that gave us Brass In Pocket?


2-Guns N Roses-AFD

3-Heart-Dreamboat Annie

4-Deep Purple-Shades of Deep Purple


Ahh, the Montrose...another awesome debut I forgot about it. Great pick, but I won't change mine.

The thread is officially closed.  Thanks to everyone who participated.  And the results are:

5. Heart - Dreamboat Annie (12 pts)

4. Led Zeppelin - Led Zeppelin I (14 pts)

3. Boston - Boston (24 pts)

2. Guns N Roses - Appetite For Destruction (36 pts)

1. Van Halen - Van Halen (62 pts)
