I will have to go with Guns and Roses Appetite For Destruction

got both of them albums and it is hard to choose from these two but i would go for GnR, almost all those song tracks from that album became very significant to the rock scene in the 80's where we live.

 I have to go with Back in Black, though both are very good choices and very hard to choose from.

Can't argue this one too much.

 

Back In Black -AC/DC

And it has stood the test of time. I hear far more songs from this album played far more often than Appetite For Destruction.

Thanks for a great tourney and the opportunity to see some great comments from true rock n' roll fans.

Both are great album's but I am a bigger fan of Hair Bands so I'll go with Guns N' Roses.

But I think the greatest album of the 80's and all time ever is Motley Crue (Shout at the devil)

Wow, tough choices. Just thinking of the two main songs, I would take Back in Black over Sweet Child of Mine. My vote then, is for BACK IN BLACK

Gotta go with

AC/DC Back In Black  RIP Bon Scott, Long Live Brian Johnson

Back in black
I hit the sack
It's been too long I'm glad to be back
Yes, I'm let loose
From the noose
That's kept me hanging around
I've been looking at the sky
and it's gettin' me high
Forget the hearse 'cause I never die
I got nine lives
Cats eyes
Cruisin' every woman, never wonderin' why

CHORUS:
'Cause I'm back
Yes, I'm back
Well, I'm back
Yes, I'm back
Well, I'm back, back
Well I'm back in black
Yes, I'm back in black

Back in the back
Of a Cadillac
Number one with a bullet, I'm a power pack
Yes, I'm in a bang
With a gang
They've got to catch me if they want me to hang
Cause I'm back on the track
And I'm beatin' the flack
Nobody's gonna get me on another rap
So look at me now
I'm just makin' my play
Don't try to push your luck, just get out of my way

CHORUS

Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back
Well, I'm back, Yes I'm back
Well, I'm back, back
Well I'm back in black
Yes I'm back in black

hooo yeah
Ohh yeah
Yes I am
Oooh yeah, yeah Oh yeah
Back in now
Well I'm back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back, I'm back
Back
Back in black
Yes I'm back in black

Out of the sack
