The 11 Best Rock Albums of 2006

After days and days of creating lists for every genre of rock like hard rock, alternative, country rock, indie rock, I was so confused I ended up with Snoop Dogg and Moby topping the list. I mean seriously, what the hell is alternative supposed to be anyways? The Killers? They're everywhere! What are they the alternative to...Bruce Springsteen? The Killers are outselling isn't Bruce the alternative now??? Who knows? So I've condensed it. One list to define all of rock. If the album's got a guitar on it...then it was considered. Only keyboards or a beat's left out. Easy enough, right? Hell, no. Absolutely impossible. Anyway...

Here are the 11 Best Rock albums of 2006:

1. The Strokes - First Impression of Earth
2. Tool - 10,000 Days
3. Arctic Monkeys - Whatever People Say I Am...
4. The Decembrists - The Crane Wife
5. TV On The Radio - Return To Cookie Mountain
6. The Raconteurs - Broken Boy Soldiers
7. Audioslave - Revolutions
8. Mastadon - Blood Mountain
9. Priestess - Priestess
10. Bob Dylan - Modern Times
11. We Are Scientists - With Love and Squalor
