    Default The Most Iconic Rock Album Of All-Time Tournament

    Vote for the albums in each of the following match ups which you like more. I realize many of us have albums by the following artists which we like better, but I tried to choose their most historically beloved releases. No artist has more than one album in this tournament, and for obvious reasons, there are no Van Halen albums included.


    Damn The Torpedoes (Tom Petty) vs Led Zeppelin IV (Led Zeppelin)
    Hotel California (Eagles) vs. Rumours (Fleetwood Mac)

    The Cars (the Cars) vs. Who's Next (The Who)
    The Joshua Tree (U2) vs. Back In Black (AC/DC)

    Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (Elton John) vs. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (The Beatles)
    Boston (Boston) vs. Appetite For Destruction (Guns N' Roses)

    Moving Pictures (RUSH) vs. Let It Bleed (The Rolling Stones)
    Dark Side Of The Moon (Pink Floyd) vs. Rocks (Aerosmith)


    *Voting for this round will close at approximately 8:30 pm PST on Thursday, 6/26.
    "It's so lonely at the top because it's so crowded at the bottom" - Diamond David Lee Roth

    "The truth sounds like hate to those who hate the truth" - Todd Wagner

    So, you don't like a single song from either Goodbye Yellow Brick Road or Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band? Seriously???
