    Favorite Rock Albums

    I was careful to word the title with "favorite" instead of "best." So, here is a typical offseason music kind of thread. What are your favorite rock albums of all time? Do a top 5, top 10, top 25, top 100, I don't care...

    I am keeping this in a rather self-defined "rock'n'roll vein" so I am not allowing myself to go into the country/folky area at all with this list. My first take, certainly omitting some of my own faves...(I think there's 25 here)

    The Doors - Waiting For the Sun
    Aerosmith - Live Bootleg
    AC/DC - Back In Black
    Mother Love Bone - Apple
    AC/DC - Let There Be Rock
    The Dogs D'Amour - In the Dynamite Jet Saloon
    Hanoi Rocks - Bangkok Shocks, Saigon Shakes...
    Def Leppard - High'n'Dry
    Grateful Dead - American Beauty
    Led Zeppelin - II
    Cinderella - Long Cold Winter
    Hanoi Rocks - Self Destruction Blues
    G'n'R - Appetite for Destruction
    AC/DC - Powerage
    Joan Jett & the Blackhearts - Album
    Beatles - Revolver
    Stones - Sticky Fingers
    Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here
    Bon Jovi - New Jersey
    Motley Crue - Dr. Feelgood
    Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger
    Hendrix - Live at Winterland
    Hendrix - Electric Ladyland
