I don't like the rule either, but I didn't want to list 10 Grateful Dead albums (Live Dead, American Beauty, Workingman's Dead, Garcia...) , a bunch of CSNY albums, Beatles albums, etc.
Yeah. I was thinking there autah be a Pink Floyd album in the list too, but couldn't freaky decide which and then when I add a Led Zeppelin album to the list (can't decide which) and the remember that I also forgot to put Live Cream Volume II in the list, my list of 5 is suddenly more like 10 and I still haven't included a Frank Zappa/ Mothers of Invention album...
Okay. Now that my memories have been jogged by a bunch of you, here is my updated list of the top 5 Rock n Roll albums if all time:
Again in no particular order:
1. Live Dead (or American Beauty, Workingman's Dead, Aoxamoxa, Anthem of the Sun, Europe 72...) - Grateful Dead
2. Sticky Fingers (or Get Your Ya Ya's Out) - Rolling Stones
3. Who's Next - The Who
4. 2nd Winter - Johnny Winter
4. 4 Way Street (or Deja Vu, CSN, After The Goldrush) - CSNY
5. Live Cream Volume II (or Wheels of Fire) - Cream
6. Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
7..Magical Mystery Tour - Beatles
8. Live at The Fillmore - Allman Brothers
9. The Band - The Band
10. Freak Out (or Burnt Weeny Sandwich, Hot Rats, Were Only In It For The Money, Live at the Fillmore) - Frank Zappa and The Mothers
Okay that's not 5, but I can't count.
Live at the Fillmore - The Allman Brothers
Four Way Street – CSNY
Crazy Horse- Live Rust
Rolling Stones—Exile on Main St.
Pink Floyd- Animals
Led Zepp- Sound Track to Song Remains the Same

Just kidding, really. I'm surprised thart so many posts mention the same killer bands, and that they are the same ones I would list. Very few posts with poser/peripheral "cult" (= non-major, non-influential) groups. It's amazing to look back and realize how powerful and original those core groups were -- just young guys going nuts.
Sure, but hanging out online and bloviating about any number of subjects is silly and we do it anyway. And it gave you a place to express yourself too! Bonus.
For Rock n Roll, for me, it has to both rock, and roll Brainmusic that isn't jiggable fails that test.
Motorhead played rock n roll, and did it very well. From the Three Amigos lineup, I'd choose the predictable 'Ace Of Spades' Post Amigos, 'We Are Motorhead' captures the many splendoured Motorhead.
The Pirates 'Out Of Their Skulls' and 'Skull wars' rock so damned hard, they daren't make a movie of them.
Dr Feelgood hit the road running with 'Down By The Jetty', an album as close to perfection as makes no odds. The live offerings of 'Stupidity' and the Kursaal recording 'Going Back Home' achieve it.
Mickey Jupp has released three albums under the title 'Legend' The 'Red Boot' album is the one to go for. It is the blueprint for Dr Feelgood. Wonderful, boogie filled platter.
Anything by Fats Domino. Really. The man was a boogie machine!
Pick a Link Wray album. Any album.
Zeppelin III - The greatest single album of all time
But I'd rather post my favorites now that it's 4 pages deep.
In on the Kill Taker
Far Beyond Driven
Flyin' the Flannel
I had a hard time stopping at 5. I actually started with closer to 20 and picked 5 of them at random.
Get Your Ya Yas Out
Allman Bros Filmore
Band of Gypsys
