Elite 8: Best Rock Album of the 80's

Alpha Region:

1. Appetite for Destruction   87' - Guns n Roses

I thought Hysteria was the better album, so I have to go with GnR here.

 


Delta Region:

7. 4   81' - Foreigner

Haven't voted for U2 yet, and still refuse to do so. This vote probably won't matter anyway

 


Beta Region:

1. Back in Black   80' - AC/DC

Now this was a tough choice. Back in Black was a great album, although some of the songs have been overplayed. It almost seems as though most dj's don't know AC/DC made other albums.

 


Charlie Region:

2. Moving Pictures   81' - Rush

Another tough choice. I'm not the biggest Floyd fan, but that album haad some good songs, still, I'm going with Rush on this one.
