    Here we go:

    This was hard, I restricted myself to one album per band! (I cheated with a few great live albums:))

    Piece of Mind, Iron Maiden
    Paranoid, Black Sabbath
    The Power and The Glory, Saxon
    Holy Diver, Dio
    Rainbow Live, Rainbow
    Unleashed in the East, Judas Priest
    One Night at Budakan, Michaeal Schenker
    Moving Pictures, Rush

  13. and I'm possibly leaning toward 'Smash' (Offspring)
     
  14. I still don't get why everyone loves smash so much... There's a handful of good tunes..Igntion & Ixnay rule
     
  15. Flea, now that you reminded me, Ixnay on the Hombre is an incredible CD; I don't know why it was so unpopular. It had barely any hits, but I love that album!
