I'd be proud, too. However did you manage to do it? It's not a bad list either. Of the bands I do recognize, most would make my top 100 too. Did you have to put Jeff Beck at #100 though? ;)

haha, I might move him up. But hey, 100th favorite album is pretty good if you ask me!

Wow, you must really like that white stripes album, to list it at 41 AND 51. ;)

And you've got Led Zep IV at 21 AND 73. Now, that one, I'd agree with ya, it belongs on there twice. :D

Well spotted. Definitely agree with your last comment, even though I have only heard the first five songs on the untitled album (technically it's untitled).I also found it funny when Australian music channel musicMAX managed to put Appetite For Destruction (Guns N' Roses) twice in their greatest albums of all time countdown.

Looks like you're quite the Hendrix fan, Batman. If you ever get the chance to come out here to the great northwest, you should really check out the Experience Music Project (EMP) in Seattle. Actually, if anyone on Songfacts comes out here, they should check it out. It's my favorite attraction in Seattle. And then, if you're nerdy like me, you can check out the Sci-Fi Museum which is right under it! :thumbsup:
