Welcome to the Hardcore Husky Forums. Folks who are well-known in Cyberland and not that dumb.

Announcing The Hardcore Husky Favorite Rock Album of all Tim Tournament

In honor of our grand reopening in beautiful Central OR, Yellow Snow’s Record Shoppe is proud to present an epic shit pole tournament featuring 64 of Hardcore Husky’s favorite rock albums of all Tim. Winners of each of my previous poles from covering 1965- 1995 were given automatic bids. At large bids to round out the field of 64 were sent to strong 2nd (and a few 3rd place showings) along with some of the most deserving post 1995 albums. Poles should open tomorrow.

Disclaimer: In an effort to stave off near certain bullying, I brought in @dnc to select and seed the 1991 – present bracket. Please direct all hate mail to him for this era; everything else can be fired my way.

  • Hendrix at #1 in the Geriatric Division is a skrong statement. Not saying it's wrong, don't twist. He is a legit contender, but did not expect that from @YellowSnow.
  • Also, would have dropped one of the Tool albums for Muse - Absolution.

    I don't think there is a clear #1 in the 1965- 71 bracket and probably about 4 or 5 albums that are worthy of it. If we went by Rolling Stone Mag's 2003 rankings (i.e., before they went totally woke millenial douche canoe) Pet Sounds would we a 1 seed, with Revolver 2 and Rubber Soul 3. I don't think that matches the sentiments of the bored, which is what I based this more off of.

    I’m going to wait for @RollingStoneDawg to weigh in before I cast my ballot.

    Good job. I probably would have done better, and had a historically good bracket, but we'll just never know. This effort will do for now.

    If you ass slapping, keg chugging, jacked up Toyota driving, NBA watching, butt plugging,, frat boy crackers fuck this up like you have every other music pole here I'm just gone. No warning.

    @chuck it's not a matter of my critical assessment in this exercise. Notice no Dylan albums. 1 Neil Young entry. This is a college football message bored and our? favorite artists just didn't do well in the regular season (i.e., by year poles).

    I get it. Thats why I said good job ahead of all the nonsense and shit talk.

    The lack of Dylan is upsetting but no surprise. The shortage if Punk Floyd (Animals especially but Wish You Were Here too), while shit like Bad Company, Boston, Aerosmith, and The Cars made it in is also disturbing. Then again all the joking things I said before do actually apply, so there's no surprise.

    Lots of AC/DC in the bracket, like there should be. Their brackets are tough, though - so the odds look long.

    I think AC DC has a pretty good shot of winning 1 of these brackets.

    80-90 is a murder hell with Back in Black and Master of Puppets on a crash course. AfD is good, but it's not those other two.

    It's good shit. I loved it in it's day, but Battery trounces Welcome to the Jungle, Master trounces Sweet Child o Mine, and Sanitarium ties Paradise City at worst. It's just too much Metallica, on THE magnum opus metal record EVER made.

    Agree with above.

    HOWSOEVER, for me, the timless tracks on Appetite are It's So Easy, Out Ta Get Me, and Mr. Brownstone. Those hold the fuck up.

    Agree. Mr. Brownstone is my favorite track on the album. I was just going with the "Big Three" from each, and there is no question Metallica inspired a generation of musicians with the intricately arranged wall of sound they perfected on Master. GnR, while great fun in their day, inspired a generation of pot heads. They are just not comparable.

    Btw, Disposable Heroes is kind of the Mr. Brownstone of Master. Just epic. Gets overshadowed by the Big Three but is so bad ass on it's own. And Orion still sets the standard for what a metal instrumental can and should be. I have a boner. Peak Cliff inspired Metallica. Masterpiece.
