Why Jann Wenner is a douchenozzle (Part the Second)

Too much Beatles for one thing. You seriously are going to tell me that Please Please Me should be on the list in front of half a dozen worthy Kinks and Who albums. Get freaking real. And limit it to one genre. Kind of Blue and Love Supreme are great but there’s dozens of seminal jazz albums that should be there – so should Sinatra. So first strictly rock/pop for one thing. Rock fathers and grandfathers are great but they forgot Howling Wolf and BB King so no Elvis, Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, etc. Compilations are fair because sometimes the best albums are comps. The Kinks Kronikles is flawless. The original list is 500 albums but I am dealing with the top 50. I am also staying out of the 90s because you gotta draw a line somewhere. But for starters these are missing:

The Pretenders – The Pretenders
The Pretty Things – Parachute
The Kinks – Village Green Preservation Society
Mott the Hoople – Mott
Peter Gabriel – Security
Linda Ronstadt – Heart Like a Wheel
Led Zeppelin – Physical Graffiti
Richard and Linda Thompson – Shoot Out the Lights
The Who – Quadrophenia
Tom Petty – Damn the Torpedoes
Genesis – Foxtrot
The Faces – Five Guys Walk Into a Bar
Black Sabbath – Paranoid
Dire Straits – Making Movies
Bruce Springsteen – Darkness on the Edge of Town
Queen – A Night at the Opera
Yes – The Yes Album
Aerosmith – Rocks
Stevie Ray Vaughan – Crossfire

And yes, I added some prog and hard rock. Sue me. Like Little Richard wrote meaningful lyrics.
