The highlight for me was seeing London Calling in the top ten. Damn straight. Usually that album is relegated to #25-ish status on these lists.

And yes, Nevermind deserves to be #17. That album has already been canonized, Cobain haters (or should I say Cobain not giving enough credit-ers). Get used to it.

not based on musicianship... but rather a movement that other bands PERFECTED...

Musicianship (technics), no. Songwriting, yes. Kurt Cobain was a sub par musician, obviously. But he was a master songwriter. Somehow, I have a feeling that I am going to be defending this album for the rest of my life. Some people just don't agree with letting it slip into the library to join Sgt Peppers, Blonde on Blonde, Exile on Main St., etc. Oh well, I've defended Nevermind so many times by now that I'm used to sticking up for it.

BTW, what was with OK Computer being placed in the mid 100's? WTF?? That's totally inexcusable. How can it not make at least the top 50?

I give OK Computer the edge b/c it is best as a free flowing album, no skipping, no random order.  The Bends is more of a collection of great singles.
