Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time
Rolling Stone published their original 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time list in 2003, with a slight update in 2012. Over the years, it’s been the most widely read (and argued over) feature in the history of the magazine. But no list is definitive — tastes change, new genres emerge, the history of music keeps being rewritten. So they decided to remake their greatest albums list from scratch.
The new list is online now, and in the October issue of the magazine. More than 300 artists, writers and industry figures — everyone from Beyonce to U2 to Stevie Nicks — sent in ballots to help create the new 500.
We’re pleased to tell you that The Who have four entries on the list! Who’s Next came in at #77; Tommy came in at #190; The Who Sell Out at #315 and Live at Leeds at #327. This is a tremendous accomplishment; remember that this list covers all albums from all time. So far.
