So Rolling Stone recently polled their readers and asked them what they thought was the best album of the ‘80s. U2’s The Joshua Tree scored the most votes, edging out Guns N’ Roses’ Appetite for Destruction and Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA came in fourth, AC/DC’s Back in Black took the number six spot and Metallica’s Master of Puppets wound up in tenth. See the whole list at

For the record, the top-selling albums of the ‘80s in order are Thriller, Back in Black, Born in the USA and Appetite for Destruction.

So what’s your favorite album from the ‘80s? My pick is AC/DC's Back in Black.

I asked the question on the 96X Facebook page today and got a lot of feedback.  Back in Black led the way with Facebook users too.  Some others that got votes included Van Halen's 1984, Def Leppard's Pyromania, and Rush's Moving Pictures.
