Rock N’ Roll H.of F. Definitive 200

No doubt to raise some pub for the 2007 induction class, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in conjuction with Amazon and like 75 other retailers, has released a list of their Definitive 200 albums of all time.? Um, so? people who already own the albums will be inclined to buy them again?? Gotta love their thinking behind this, least of all the list in general.?? Idolater has more on the marketing aspects of this list.? Um… without further ado.

How many do you own?? How many do you wish you could sell back or never bought in the first place?? What’s up with Supernatural coming in at #13?? And for the love of Christ I can’t believe they had the audacity to leave off Chinese Democracy.? Rock snobs, I tell ya.? And for the hip kids who may buy records (not that they probably even know what a record is) swing down to Myspace for laughs.? We struggled to keep reading after Creed checked in around 95 and then pooped ourselves when we got to the Titanic Soundtrack at #103.
