I've seen this done on i think mygnr at some point and it worked really well, and i can't recall it being done here

Basically, we can compile the Velvet Revolver Forum's all time Top 100 albums (excluding live/greatest hits albums)

Each poster posts their 5 favourite albums in no order (they're allowed to for a couple of weeks or a month or so) and i, or maybe a mod if they want to be in charge/team of people, can tally them all up and give a complete list of the top 100 albums according to Velvet Revolver fans.

Thought it might be fun but didn't want to start it without mods agreement etc

I have a funny feeling I could already make a pretty good guess at the top 10 and I'd even be willing to put money on what will be number 1 but it sounds like fun anyway. :D

Only problem is picking just 5 albums..... :?

I know its hard, but ten would be ridiculous for tallying!

I'll start the thread then.

Didn't really want to start it without people being willing to do it, would seem a bit pointless that way  :lol:

Just sayin.


My picks may or may not make the top whatever but these are the CD's that get continual play...or I can't live without them. And it's DAMN hard to pick just 5!  :P


1: Core-STP
2: Deconstruction-Deconstruction
3: Nevermind the bollocks-Sex Pistols
4: Rocket to Russia-The Ramones
5: Nothing's Shocking-Jane's Addiction

1. Rage Against the Machine-Rage Against the Machine
2. Faith No More-Angel Dust
3. Velvet Revolver-Contraband
4. Stone Temple Pilots-Core
5. Franz Ferdinand-Franz Ferdinand

It was difficult! Had to exclude some Jane's Addiction, White Zombie, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Ratt!

I think all VR/STP albums should be excluded because they'll obviously come pretty high? Am I right?  :P And a Top 10 would be much better :wink: but good thread.

I think its interesting to see where VR/GNR/STP will chart. As most people probably prefer a GNR or STP album to a VR album. But then a VR album probably has a more personal high placing for a lot of people.

They'll probably be disproportionately high but so be it.

Also, everyone has to narrow it down to five! I know its hard! Quit your belly aching people!  :lol:

I felt guilty leaving off STP, AC/DC, Aerosmith.....so many bands, but thats the way it goes  :D

You know maybe you should exclude any VR/GnR/STP from the list. This way it's a list of other music we all like and have in our CD/itunes collection.

I guess, i was going to consider it but wasn't sure how disproportionate it'd be.....plus then you'd all have to start again!

I'll ask a mod to delete it and re-start the thread and i'll post the new rules.

Well you know the GnR fans will put a GnR album on there's and so will a STP fan and every other poster will pick a VR CD.  :lol:

I'll happily go back and edit mine and take out Core. I was having a tough time picking just 5 anyway!  :P

I think it'll be easiest if i re-start the thread to be honest, otherwise i'll get confused tallying it and so on. I pm'd Sverre about it, hopefully i'll have it sorted by tonight.

I really liked the thread idea but knew i'd mess it up somehow  :lol:

Meh. I failed.

One day i'll get the balls to try something interesting again, and i'll think of this day and make sure i do not make the same mistakes.

This is the fearless leader of the Dave Kushner forum too  :shock: :lol:


Naaaaaaaaaahhhhh, it's fine. Just get someone to delete the damn thing and start over. It'll give me a chance to include something else  :D

Merged the discussion about the rules with this thread (so I could voice my opinion :P).

Personally, I don't see the need to exclude VR/GNR/STP albums. It's top 100, so the final selection should be varied enough either way...

Don't listen too much at what I and others say though. This is your idea, and now that you have the chance to start afresh, just go for the rules you are most comfortable with, Jared.
