When is this fiasco of the truth going to be over anyway?

Both the Fraudulant Ramones & V.V. Votes should be disqualified!

The Winner is MEGADETH!

5150 was a BIG album for me since it inspired me to learn the guitar as well as music in general. It is still my all time favorite disc. Always will be.

Haters bad mouthing the best guitar player of our generation. VINNIE VINCENT. Vinnie was never allowed to shine because the twisted minds of HIS FORMER BANDS holding him back and stopping everything he tried to do. I AM SICK TO DEATH OF VINNIE VINCENT HATERS. FACE IT HE IS THE BEST OF THE GUITAR GODS AND HAS SO MANY GENUINE SUPPORTERS TO GET NEARLY HALF OF ALL THE VOTES. ... ANY ONE A LITTLE JEALOUS? EAT HUMBLE PIE.

It's a shame that "Ballot Result" from the Minutemen wasn't included on the list.

I wonder how many voters were actually alive, or listening to music back in '86. Vinnie Vincent was garbage then and most likely now as well. When Eat 'Em and Smile came out, it was insane! It's a shame that band never made anything close to that again. Skyscraper had too much keyboards. 5150 was fantastic as well, but a little too pop sounding. Still Ed didn't disappoint with his use of the TransTrem on tunes like "Summer Nights". I will never be a Hagar fan, however.
Peace Sells and Master should get Honorable Mention. Although at the time, I remember being more into Peace Sells... it's still too close to call.
But Vinnie Vincent? You've got to be kidding!

DLR is the best album but VINNIE VINCENT deserves it with all the BS he has to put up with from THE HATERS.

Blacky you and your cheating ramones buddies won't win this give up you loosers. Feel the wrath of vinnie Vincent.

Free advice: Before you attempt to insult someone, be sure to know how to spell the insult. "Loosers"? Do you mean that they are more loose, or are you calling them "losers"?

V.V. DESERVES LOSING TO THE RAMONES WORST ALBUM FOR TRYING TO RIG THE POLL LOSERS!

No chance for Ramones .. we will not stop to make sure trash like the ramones don't cheat this poll.

avatar

Black Thorn

Ramones, Megadeth and Master of Puppets.. what a joke. Vinnie Vincent all the way.

avatar

Tarkess

How is Peace Sells (Megadeth) a joke? Have you even heard Chris Polands solos?

This whole poll thing is kind of a failure in general. It's supposed to be about the best guitar album, yet people like Yngwie Malmsteen are ranked lower than Vinnie fucking Vincent.

LOL LOL LOL The best album will win VINNIE VINCENT

haha thousands of multiple votes from same ip for Vinnie Vincent Invasion. System allows repeat voting from same ip. Come on Vinnie fans keep voting over and over.

avatar

dougguitar

Vinnie Vincent with a commanding lead? Another survey rendered useless because it allows repeat voting from the same IP address.

avatar

Black Thorn

The Vinnie Vincent fans are grouping up to win this poll! Taking the others down. Vinnie all the way.

ChrisDude89

Where's Epicus Doomicus Metallicus by Candlemass? I would have voted for that album if it was listed.

avatar

Guitar Noir

1986 was a great year, Styper, Vinnie Vincent, Slayer, David Lee Roth, Queen. A hard choice, but it has to go to Metallica, they changed the face of metal.

It brings me great pleasure to see that King Diamond & Accept are higher up than Poison & Ratt in this.
