Top 10 favorites that others have mentioned in this thread
Elastica - Elastica (Justine Frischman affects me in indecent ways)
Beatie Boys - License to Ill (great litmus test album in the '80s, people who liked were capable of having fun, people who didn't weren't)
The Cars - The Cars (almost a perfect album)
Black Flag - Damaged (THE definitive American hardcore record, used to be in a band that covered "Rise Above")
Elvis Costello - My Aim Is True (hard to choose between this and "This Year's Model", the guitar riff at in "Miracle Man" puts this one over the top for me)
Flogging Molly - Drunken Lullabies (makes me feel guilty that I don't drink more)
Neil Young and Crazy Horse - Rust Never Sleeps (or, how I learned to love distortion)
Talking Heads - Little Creatures (the first side of the album was good, the second side was glorious, if only they had released it a month earlier so I could have listened to "Road to Nowhere" during my high school graduation)
Ozzy Osbourne - Blizzard of Ozz (forget about all those Black Sabbath dirges, Ozzy came out rocking in his first solo album, there's still radio stations in central Maine where you can hear "Steal Away" played on the radio)
Archers of Loaf - Icky Mettle (little known fact, this album was played as background music for Entertainment Tonight at various points during the mid-90s, now that is subversive)
Would have had to go with Chemical Brothers if someone had picked "Dig Your Own Hole" and Husker Du if someone had picked "New Day Rising".

Great band. Two members (singer and bass player) were killed in a car crash shortly after this album got somewhat popular. Had the makings of a pretty good band-- they managed to produce one great album. "Mighty KC" is about Curt Kobain....FYI.I really like the song Mighty KC by For Squirrels.
