      Some good albums, but Pantera opened up the metal genre in bigger ways than MM or the others. NIN should be higher because the lyrics and structure were original. MM basically did Kiss and Alice Cooper rehash, just with updated creepiness and more cultural stabs. I love POAF, but it simply didn’t have the influence the FBD or some others did, unless you count the subpar MM ripoff bands.

    Great Album

      What’s wrong with it?

  • Arch Dandy

    great choice, Portrait is the album of the DECADE!

  • Fuhk-O

    Any album besides Far Beyond Driven is incorrect.

  • mike ness

    No.1 is a bad joke. No.2 is a pleasant surprise. Any of the following could/should be no.1 Korn, Soundgarden, NIN, Machine Head. Ciao

      if you called one of the greatest albums which made your mommy cry in fear and exposed us all to the idiot media for what it is then you were nothing more than one of those who believed in those pseudo morals and are one of the weak.

  • Mr_Meccano

    What he F**K(!!!!!!) is this?? Pop Week? Pantera, Dream Theater, Megadeth and In Flames are the only ones worthy to be on this list.

    • Mr_Meccano love mallcore

      Retard detected. Far Beyond Driven is shit fyi. And if you consider Prong as Pop but love In Flames there is no hope for you.

      This whole list is mega shit.. No Emperor, no Darkthrone, no Amorphis. Must be a troll.

      The only albums which deserve to be in the top here are Prong, Machine Head and Dream Theater.

      You look retarded enough. There is no hope for you.

  • raulfro

    Just remember folks. Marilyn Manson is better than your shitty metal bands every day of the week. Will always be.

    fuck you haters ! 1

    I’m confused as to why Transilvanian Hunger is not on this list. Also, I did love Portrait of an American Family. I don’t feel like it should have been above Lunar Strain, Awake, Far Beyond Driven, The Downward Spiral, or Youthanasia, But it’s still a pretty good album, to me at least.

  • Chinchilla Groove

    Portrait is the best. long live MM

  • Mason Putney

    Mudvayne, L.D. 50 or gtfo scrubs

  • José Sebastian Garrido Velasqu

    Lunar Strain & Youthanasia :)

    What the fuck is this shit? Obviously the voters were 13 years old.
    lol Marilyn Manson.
    The Downward Spiral by Nine Inch Nails is far superior to everything Marilyn Manson can ever dream to do.
