20 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums

Notes:
Scott Long is now blogging at NSFWsports.com.
Will Carroll can still be found at Baseball Prospectus.

Since my first few music discussions have been a bit high-falutin', I thought I would list my favorite metal albums. The rule here is that it has to be metal, so grunge bands like Nirvana or psychedelic acts like Jimi Hendrix are not included. No greatest hits and no multiple albums by the same acts, just to have a more diverse list. In alphabetical order.

AC/DC- Back in Black
AC/DC Highway to Hell (Different singers, so I've included both)
Aerosmith- Rocks
Alice In Chains- Dirt
Black Sabbath- Paranoid
Deep Purple- Machine Head
Dio- Holy Diver
Faith No More- The Real Thing
Guns and Roses- Appetite for Destruction
Iron Maiden- Piece of Mind
Judas Priest- British Steel
Kiss- Love Gun
Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti
Metallica- And Justice For All
Monster Magnet- Powertrip
Motley Crue- Shout at the Devil
Ozzy Osbourne- Blizzard of Oz
Scorpions- Blackout
Soundgarden- Badmotorfinger
Van Halen- Van Halen

As you can tell, I don't like death metal. I will be glad to explain my choices, when challenged.
