Slayer's Kerry King: My 10 Favorite Metal Albums

Guitarist's picks include Judas Priest's 'Stained Class' and Metallica's 'Master of Puppets'

AC/DC, 'Highway to Hell' (1979)

AC/DC, 'Highway to Hell' (1979)

A lot of my picks could have went a lot of ways. I love Powerage. I love If You Want Blood You've Got It. All the early AC/DC stuff is so awesome, but Highway to Hell, besides it being Bon Scott's last album, there's just no duds on there. It's super, super polished, too. It's got maybe a darker vibe. "Walk All Over You" is a pretty dark song. "Highway to Hell" is a very dark song. "Night Prowler" is super dark. Maybe that's why it appeals to me, I don't know, but so much of that stuff is just great.
