    I was always amused listening to the Scorpions sing in near perfect English then when they were interviewed on American radio I couldn't understand them. "Ve ist Klaus und Rudi and ve vill rock du like herrcane!"

    Hurts @creepycoug, IMO

    "Suckin' on chili dog outside the Tasty Freeze" is an alltime hook.

    Dribble off those Bobby Brooks

  • It technically came out in 1982, but Cock Sparrer’s Shock Troops is the best 70s punk album. The band that was supposed to be Malcom McLaren’s project instead of the Sex Pistols. Supposedly, he refused to pay their bar tab and they told him to fuck off.

    Anyway, here’s Wonderwall.

    We don’t have enough punk fans at HH. Too many hair metal fags.
    I appreciate you adding Alt music to the polls. You had Wire as an option, that gets you definite points.

    Sometimes the best albums are not just the ones you can listen to when skipping every other track. They’re the ones who have inspired the future albums you can listen to where you only need to skip a few tracks. And that’s what 70s/80s punk did.

    Without the Misfits there might not be a Metallica. Without the Descendents there might not be an Offspring. Without Television there might not be either. I don’t like Op Ivy, but I love Rancid and Common Rider. And all the bands they’ve spawned.

    Long story short, some music is good and influential but people don’t give it the credit it deserves. But it could be the reason their favorite song exists.

    Rio - Duran Duran

    The Scorpions - Blackout



    Not being a hater because @YellowSnow is doing God's work managing this shit, but I think the lack of 80's era hair rock has been glaring. Roxy Music, Toto, and Men at Work have no business being on this list while The Scorpions are left off. More REAL rock, please.

    Listened to pod series a while back, that speculated Winds of Change was written or planted by the CIA as propaganda.
    Per your recommendation I listened to said podcast. Really enjoyed the first few episodes but the ending of the series was weak. I also didn't like the fact that he was told this story off the record by a CIA friend and ended up making a podcast out of it, much to his friend's disapproval.

    Yes, it got very self-indulgent by the end. Story cames from a friend who got it from a CIA connection.

    Since someone already posted Blackout, this was a close second

    Yes, I have my confirmation bias. I tend to look at a lot of critics best of lists by year as a starting point. I’ve put in plenty of metal but a lot of the hair bands weren’t critical favs.
    that's because critics are fags who never get laid

    My favorite criticism is "too commercial" meaning 20 million people bought it
