Tune Talk: Top 5 Generation Influencing Rock Albums

5. Superunknown by Soundgarden (1994)
This album was ridiculously popular once it was released in 1994. More or so because Soundgarden was already on a streak of releasing a very successful album in 1991 that most grunge fans know by the name of “Badmotorfinger.” Of course on this album, Soundgarden had their biggest hits “Black Hole Sun,” and “Spoonman,” that took them at the top of the charts. Although lead singer of Soundgarden, Chris Cornell, died last year due to suicide by hanging, Soundgarden was widely popular because of this album before his death. Most people think that it became popular after his death. That is false of course.

4. Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd (1973)
Although I personally never gotten into Pink Floyd, they’re known to be one of the most influential bands of all time and with the release of their 1973 album, they rose to the top of the charts. On this album, Pink Floyd had their biggest hits of their time, “Us and Them,” “Time,” and “Money.” Unfortunately I don’t know any of those songs and I know that it’s sad that I don’t know any Pink Floyd songs, but at least I put them on the list, right?

3. Master of Puppets by Metallica (1986)
This album is WIDELY known across the globe for being the greatest metal band of all time. Metallica was already known to be the greatest thrash metal band in the 80’s, this album just set them over the top. On this album, Metallica had their biggest hit of all time of course, “Master of Puppets,” as well as some other great hits and my favorites, “Battery,” “Disposable Heroes,” “Welcome Home (Sanitarium),” and “Leper Messiah.”

2. Nevermind by Nirvana (1991)
Known to literally be the greatest grunge album of all time, Nirvana released their popular album in 1991. With this album, Nirvana was certified indie gold and won several MTV awards as well as NME awards for having the best album and best singles ever. This album revolutionized the world of grunge with songs like “Lithium,” “Come as you Are,” “Stay Away,” “Territorial Pissings,” “In Bloom,” “Drain You,” “Breed,” “Polly,” “On a Plain,” “Lounge Act,” “Something in the Way,” and of course Nirvana’s biggest hit and most overplayed hit of all time, “Smells like Teen Spirit.” The reason I say that the song was overplayed was, well obviously because it was overplayed on the radio.

1.Abbey Road by the Beatles (1969)
The Beatles are literally labeled the greatest rock band of all time. Nobody was more successful than the Beatles. With their early fame they gained one they started in 1960, the Beatles were loved by all the girls as well as families in general. With the previous releases of “Help!,” “Rubber Soul,” “Revolver,” “The White Album,” “Sargent Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” and so many others, they were already at the top of their game. But then in 1969, they released the biggest album of all time, “Abbey Road.” This album held great music records and gained tons of awards after it’s release with songs like “Something,” “Oh! Darling,” “Here Comes the Sun,” “Come Together,” “Octopus’s Garden,” “I Want You (She’s So Heavy),” and “Because.”
