Best Albums of All Time: NME and Guinness

British voters have chosen “the best albums of all time.” Not surprisingly, there are only two American bands in the Top 20: Nirvana (Nevermind) and the Strokes (Is This It).

The full Top 20:

1. ‘Definitely Maybe’ – Oasis

2. ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band’ – The Beatles

3. ‘Revolver’ – The Beatles

4. ‘OK Computer’ – Radiohead

5. ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ – Oasis

6. ‘Nevermind’ – Nirvana

7. ‘The Stone Roses’ – The Stone Roses

8. ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ – Pink Floyd

9. ‘The Queen Is Dead’ – The Smiths

10. ‘The Bends’ – Radiohead

11. ‘The Joshua Tree’ – U2

12. ‘London Calling’ – The Clash

13. ‘The Beatles (The White Album)’ – The Beatles

14. ‘Abbey Road’ – The Beatles

15. ‘Up The Bracket’ – The Libertines

16. ‘Never Mind The Bollocks Here’s The Sex Pistols’ – Sex Pistols

17. ‘Four Symbols (Led Zeppelin IV)’ – Led Zeppelin

18. ‘The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars’ – David Bowie

19. ‘A Night At The Opera’ – Queen

20. ‘Is This It’ – The Strokes

The order is a little goofy, but those are all great albums. But no Stones? No black people?

  1. Agree With Number 1 without a shadow of a doubt. but ther has been far better albums than Both of radioheads. Far Far Far Too Overated.

  2. I saw Led Zeppelin IV mentioned and pretty much turned off…the number one album of every old fossil that doesn’t actually give a rat’s ass about music in the first place.
