  • No Talk Talk???

  • Zero Viper albums on the list? Really? Seems like authors are cowards who don't smoke crack.

  • where is Chris Chan and The Hedgehog Boys

  • ONE single Tom Waits album?!? Nothing from The Pogues?!? Not a single thing from Townes Van Zandt?!? What about The Violent Femmes or Janes Addiction?!? Did I just miss them?!? Yet every thing that fucking kanye ever did is present and accounted for. Horseshit.

  • This video was way to short

  • Having Kanye West in the Top 20 is a fucking disgrace.

  • Honestly, the fact that the Eagles are on there is a sin unto itself. The Eagles are beloved by no one. No one actually LOVES The Eagles. They may think "oh yeah, a legendary band, I guess I like that one song" but have they done anything worth "the best??" Fuck offffff

  • No Talk Talk are they insane????

  • Put some respect on my guys Dire Straits MELON

  • ok boomer

  • Rolling stone also put Welcome to the Jungle as the greatest rock song of all time.........kill me

  • Let’s just be honest: they were feeling a little woke. It was a Rolling Stones list after all. They had Joni Mitchell over the Beatles for shit’s sake. Give me a break.

  • Beatles not first 😂😂

  • where is blank flag damaged?

  • Not a single Gorillaz album is on this list. Instantly lost all credibility.

  • i kno i'm the weirdo here, but honestly i'd pick Graduation > 808's anyday. being "dated" doesn't make it "bad"...and being "influential" doesn't make it "good". for instance: bands like The Stooges and The Ramones have some of the most dated music in rock n roll, and it all sucks. but we love those records anyway, and they're still massively influential. because being dated, and being good doesn't matter. Graduation is underrated af. it's the progression from Late Registration, and i think a damn fine way to put a cap on the traditionalism and academia side of hip hop before ye transitioned into his own experimentation. it's his version of a senior thesis. 808's is the first gallery show out of skool where shit is hitting walls 5min before opening. it's sloppy and rough, and stressful but it got done and people loved it, and a few pieces sold, and it was enough to reinforce that this career can keep going forward. none of it is BAD, just momentary. kinda pales in comparison, and is a "meh" middle grey on timeline between mastubartory shitshow and magnum opus.

  • No aphex......not a good list then. Druqs is in my top 5 of all time.

    • Then again he would tell Rolling stone to fuck off and remove him from the list anyway.

  • Robotano

  • They choose fine line over "Purpose" lmao let me laugh

  • At least they put Aquemini in top 50

  • Replace the hotel California album with the eagles compilation

  • no anthony I can't cuddle with you every night my mum will find out

  • No king crimson in this list? What a sick joke

  • I was shocked that Bob Marley's "Legend" was #48 on the list. Literally just a greatest hits album that completely ignores everything The Wailers did before "Catch a Fire".

  • No Aphex Twin?! Holy shit! What a shitty list!

  • 3 minutes in and u can tell the list wont go down well...

  • They could say 500 best popular albums in America but since it's rolling stone, it's essentially implied. The inclusion of compilations while honoring albums is beyond idiotic in my book. No one will ever be pleased with anyone's list; we all have our favorites. Don't know why they bothered with this list but maybe they sold a couple more copies of RS lol

  • I'm surprised "Toxicity" inst anywhere to be found on the list

  • I hat the new list sgt pepper at 24 made me so fucking mad

  • I disagree on Graduation. Great album back to front some of the beats and samples on there are so good. 808s is great in concept but songs like The Glory, Everything I Am, I Wonder and Good Morning are better than most songs on 808s.

    • Exactly man dude was losing it right there. Graduation > 808s by far

  • 4:58 yeah and also better than DOWNWARD SPIRAL.

  • I want fantano's top 500 albums

  • Papa was a rolling rolling stone....ooooOooooooo...,

  • Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Rihanna over The Who, Pink Floyd, The Beatles and Deep Purple, what a stupid list. #Shame.

  • Atlantis Morissette

  • Apparently Drake is better than Frank Ocean.

  • The fact Kanye West has like 3 of these listings. And his first one is My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Girl that album ain’t even good.

    • And it was placed above TPAB lol😂😂😂

  • Kanye West over Iggy pop it's a fucking insult to anybody who has ears

  • TLC

  • who the hell is an eric church? guy looks and probably sounds like an awful jagoff

  • the took off MGMT to make room for that harry guy or whoever he is

  • this dweeb stil at it, get lost buddy

  • I'm surprised you didn't talk about 50 Cent's GRODT being on here, let alone it being at 280

  • 3:11 Fiona Apple’s Extraordinary Machine deserves its placement. This album is so good lyrically and sonically. The reason it is overlooked is because it’s not as intense as her other records

  • Break´em off.

  • That Bad Bunny album is 6 spots ahead of Pretty Hate Machine.

  • What did you think of tori Amos Little Earthquakes Remastered

  • I don’t even object to a Taylor Swift album being on there but Red is so much worse than Folklore it’s unreal

  • I start to like you and your videos and then you say something stupid like "Led Zeppelin II is overrated". I know everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but Led Zeppelin II is their biggest masterpiece, it is rated so highly for a reason.

  • Rolling Stone Magazine is full of shite and has been for a long while now (at least 20 or more years).

  • This list is ass because Angelic 2 The Core isn't at #1

  • TPAB should be ranked slightly higher but that's just me personally

  • GKMC criminally underrated, falls below Take Care you kidding me?

  • flipante que en el top no esté Amaral (realmente indignante) hamood

  • What’s going on is only number one because the times we are living in and the relevance of the record it’s always had in history but honestly the Beatles still seem to have biggest influence in popular music. Their studio efforts are untouchable for times they were living in

  • You are the man, Fantano. I've been dissapointed with this RS 500 list since the 2003 edition, I think they miss the mark in so many levels...

  • Did you know beyoncé's lemonade is #32 on this list? Well deserved queen check out that masterpiece

  • No albums by Swans, Ween, Coil, Igorrr, The Residents, Stereolab, Boredoms, and many more. Rolling Stone have never been right about anything. In fact, extremely few music critics have been right about anything.

  • no aphex twin, no king crimson? im out.

  • S P O R T S

  • I think it's a little difficult with compilations. If the comp in question was kind an event in and of itself when it dropped (my memory of the time is that Madonna's "Immaculate Collection" definitely falls into this category), then I don't mind it being on a list like this. If it's just some completely generic, anonymous "best of" crap that the average individual can't remember ever having existed, then that's stupid and it should be left off. But I mean, yeah, just looking at the numbers online, this Madonna comp sold like 30 million copies worldwide, and is her top selling release. One could well make the case that it's her most iconic release.

  • these lists became boring years ago and make my eyes roll. my gripe is that these lists exist and can't even be bothered reading it. Who cares where the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Floyd etc are placed on them? There don't need any more plaudits. Also increasingly irrelevant, i'd argue as the increasing and sheer weight of music it's difficult to compile them in a meaningful order not helped by comparing an album 30/40/50 years older than a more recent one that hasn't had the chance to grow into become revered as these things can take time.

  • This guy wreaks of corduroy and bad breath

  • Talking about bands with stereo in their name, there isn't a single stereo lab album in that list. Instead we have a harry styles album. Are you fucking kidding me

  • The fact that album.wav is on there instead of album2.wav is honestly such a travesty

  • I’ll have an awful lot of things to say about this list, but I’ll just say that there is no Trout Mask Replica and that’s a shame

  • They got rid of 154 albums from the 2012 edition to make room for people like Kanye who has the third most albums on the list. I don’t get it.

  • thank you...compilations should have there own list

  • My thoughts: #402 is an African album. There is a lot of jazz albums on the list. Did they put every Kanye West album on this list? I believe I just own three albums from this list. These writers don't seem to listen to modern blues, EDM, metal or disco.

  • Rolling Stone is getting demented.

  • Can't belive ELO isn't on a single one of Rolling Stones top 500 albums lists

  • Lol this is what happens when you try to pander to a new generation. Nothing wrong with new music, but it needs years to settle into classic status. Most will not be remembered. It's staying power that should be the deciding factor on a 500 greatest album list of all time, so all records from the past 10-15 years are excluded by default. Maybe they will make it later, but give it time to see.

  • Clearly payola has taken another form....... Drake on a 500 greatest albums list. Can probably name 500 better rappers than dude.

  • The fact that rodeo isn’t in here shows how underrated the album still is to this day

  • Joshua Tree should be in top 50. It's the blueprint to indie rock as we know it today. Also, every band copies 'something' from that record at some point.

  • ngl if this was my list i would've put Palaye Royale's The Bastards on there but since it's literally from this year I can see why it didn't make it

  • I'm going to read the list now and if The Black Parade isn't on there but Harry Styles is- I will literally screech edit: it's #361 but why tf is eminem higher than them bruh edit again: ok but like just realized there's no placebo even though those first two albums were literally amazing bruh-

  • was teenage dream on the list???

  • Disappointed you didn't do the robot voice the whole video.

  • Bruh How is RINGO not in the top 10

  • It seems like the editors of the list just picked an artist at random and chose the first album that came to mind. It doesn’t bother me at all that the list is mostly western music. Rolling Stone is a historically rock publication so it’s cool. I just think people get hung up on the name of the list when it really doesn’t matter. If XXL did a list of the “Greatest Albums of All Time” and put all rap, I don’t think anyone would care. Rolling Stone just gave into the pressure it got when it released the 2003 list.

  • So, is it that they have to cater to this demographic of younger people who don't care about anything other than current pop culture to stay afloat with clicks?

  • There were a couple improvements they made but most of their updated list just seems like they're pandering to modern audiences and also why are there greatest hits collections

  • this list is a joke.

  • Graduation is dated???????????? You're telling me that you think Graduation sounds like a dated record? What?

  • *The Biggest Problem I have with the List-* *"WHERE IS THE EMINEM SHOW?*

  • Why isn't Die Lit on there

  • I get your point about Fiona, but compared to "Red" by Taylor Swift in #99, Extraordinary Machine should not be the one to be pointed out. I mean, Taylor sold over 7 milion with this record and does anybody (not a fan and not a country listener) remember a song from it? does anybody listen to it? does any artist really (and I mean REALLY) go to this record to be inspired? lol that's when I understanding why "folklore" is the most overrated album of the year. ugh.

  • it's a list with good albums but in really weirds places - and Harry, Lana and Billie here just proves it's a popularity contest.

  • Rolling Stone is racist. Thriller deserves to be #1

  • Even better, when you go album by album and read each little description given it gets pretty clear that the lower the number the more they don't know what the album even is.

  • I don't know what to feel about the Immaculate Collection in here. Of course is a compilation of greateast hits, but there's some things to be considered here 1. Madonna re-recorded/made a new mix for almost all of the songs on this compilation (excluding Lucky Star), so it's not just a lot of songs from other albuns put together on one place, it's almost a new body of work 2. This album contains Justify My Love, that started a gigantic debate over women sexuality on music, got her video banned from MTV and made it the most sold video single in history (also the first) 3. Is, to this day, the most sold compilation album from a female artist. So, I do think there's some logic on putting this one on the list

  • I think some of the weirdness, especially towards the bottom, comes from the voting method (which I’m not a huge fan of). If like 5 rank Harry Styles highly enough he’ll make it onto the list. It also creates some awkward incentives in terms of voting.

  • i will say tho, putting "Songs in the Key of Life" in the Top 10 is fuckin' right, that's one of the greatest albums ever recorded

  • Not a valid list without Skinny Puppy, Kate Bush, or Alien Sex Fiend, come on Rolling Stone.

  • Criticizes the list for not including enough South American and African music and only focusing on Anglocentric music. .. Melon, take a look in the mirror. How much time do you spend on your channel on this type of music?

  • A list of the top 500 albums that doesn't have Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness on it cannot be taken seriously.

  • What are your thoughts on the National Recording Registry?

  • Rolling stones jojo pt5 if you know you know

  • This list is not a credible list of the best music.
