Rolling Stone remade their ‘500 Greatest Albums of All Time’ list from scratch
Rolling Stone originally published their 500 Greatest Albums of All Time list in 2003, and then updated it in 2012, but now they've entirely redone the list from scratch. The new list was voted on by over 300 artists, producers, critics, and music-industry figures, including Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Stevie Nicks, The Edge, Raekwon, Gene Simmons, Big Boi, John Cale, Eric Burdon, Patrick Carney, Jimmy Cliff, Alice Cooper, Wayne Coyne, Waxahatchee, John Darnielle, DJ Premier, Sadie Dupuis, El-P, Ella Mai, Mickey Hart, Ad-Rock, Morrissey, Bob Mould, Questlove, Nile Rodgers, Slick Rick, Robert Smith, Butch Vig, Lars Ulrich, Gerard Way, H.E.R., Tierra Whack, Snail Mail, and many others. 154 albums are completely new additions that weren't on the 2003 or 2012 lists, and we won't spoil the entire 500, but here's the top 25:
