I can't believe Motley Crüe's "Shout At The Devil" ranked anywhere. And they fell on their faces covering the Beatles' "Helter Skelter"? What a mess that was! The original was more "Metal" than the Crüe's sorry mess.

Of course Crue is #1! Mick Mars is amazing! I consider him one of the greatest guitarists and this album is why!

Motley Crue is #1 because they are the true rock and roll/metal group. Over the 30 years they have had their addictions, their "splits", loves, losses and problems but yet they still fucking rock it out. They have stayed true to themselves, their music, and most of all their fans!!!!

Shout at the devil is definitely the greatest album from 1983. Motley Crue is amazing! I have 2 copies of that album on vinyl!

Satyajit Sharma

Bark at the Moon is my personal choice.

I agree- Texas Flood.

I agree with most of that list, was kinda surprised to see Crue at #1 but happy since Crue is one of my all-time favorite bands.
