7. Guns N' Roses - 'Appetite for Destruction'
There's no doubt that Appetite for Destruction is one of the greatest debut albums in rock history. There's no doubt people will still be listening to "Welcome to the Jungle" and "Sweet Child o' Mine" in 100 years. There's no doubt that it was the only time the original band truly worked together as a team. There's no doubt the group failed to live up to the early promise of this jaw-dropping album, and there's no doubt that a reunion of the original five is pretty impossible these days. There is some doubt (quite a bit, in fact) that this is a metal album. But, again, that's not for us to decide. It also hardly matters. The album is so perfect it should be on as many "all time greatest" lists as it possibly can.
