top ten records

so, i’ve been thinking about doing this for quite some time and i’ve been slowly putting it together over the past couple months. which means that i’m fairly sure i’m not forgetting glaringly obvious additions to the list. and yes, i know that i have two against me! records. well, eff you. i couldn’t decide which i liked better. so they’re a package deal in my book. they are in no particular order. and EVERYONE knows that top ten lists have 11 items. duh.

so what are yours? please add them in the comments. [click on the number next to the headline “top ten records”]

    07. The Misfits – Static Age
    08. Emperor – IX Equilibrium
    09. Saves the Day – Stay What You Are
    10. NOFX – Punk in Drublic (It’s my first punk album, kinda started everything)
