Top 100 Hard Rock And Heavy Metal Albums of All Time (Complete Countdown)

Top 10 Black Sabbath Songs

Dear Psycho Hose Beast,

I would like to personally welcome you to the Gears of Rock’s Top 100 Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Albums of All Time Official Countdown.  I’d also like to extend a hearty congratulations to you for stumbling upon this life-altering/shattering experience.  You see, over the last 5 years I have spent very little time and effort polling the little demonic unicorns living inside my fat hairy skull.  In the end, another imperfect list came to fruition.  We can only hope that you despise it.

Insincerely Yours,

The Management

P.S. Remember, these rankings represent the greatest albums ever written, performed, and released by hard rock and heavy metal bands.  Please feel free to customarily projectile vomit blood and bile all over these rankings at your own leisure.  Without further ado, here is the complete countdown of the Top 100 Albums of All Time:
