The first thing you’ll probably notice about my list is how much pop-punk and emo is present. Three of the ten albums are from definitive pop-punk bands. Three more albums narrowly miss that category but are more emo than anything. One band is a classic hair metal (aka butt rock) powerhouse. Another was from a teenage blues prodigy. You’ve got a rock revivalist group and then Incubus, which at times, defies categorization. I’m not going to say it’s the most eclectic list ever, as there are no indie staples, alternative/grunge mentions, or anything classic rock. However, this is my list and you’re not obligated to read it at all.
