Pop acts have been releasing double albums since Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde in 1966. There have been countless classics since then, from The White Album by the Beatles all the way to Reflektor by Arcade Fire.

Why Arcade Fire's The Funeral Is the Sixth Best Album of the 2000s

So we have a question for you: What is your favorite double album? We're going to count anything that was originally released on two vinyl records or two CDs. (Some releases, like London Calling and Exile on Main Street were two records, but fit onto a single CD. Those will obviously count.) There's a ton to pick from, including Pink Floyd's The Wall, Genesis' The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway and OutKast's Speakerboxxx/The Love Below.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
