The countdown starts Friday

Tomorrow I start my countdown of the top ten hard rock/metal albums of 1986 with the album I have at number ten. I will be doing one per day for the first ten days of the month. I may be posting twice a day at times as I may throw in a few other topics during that time period so I won't bore everyone to tears. I did a countdown last year for 1985 and I gave hints each day what album was coming the next day. Of course last year there were maybe two people reading my blog. I will probably still try to give hints this year. So the album I have ranked as the tenth best of 1986 will be out Friday. The hint is they are from Belgium.

**Do you keep top ten lists of albums, bands, shows or anything like that?

I'm working on my top 10 christmas movies list this month. I'm sure I could come up with a similar list for superheroes,football players and drugs. Lists are fun.

LOL! There was a band from Belgium? You know way more about Metal than I ever will. Have you ever read "Fargo Rock City" by Chuck Klosterman? I think you'd really enjoy it.

I don't keep lists, I'm usually too stoned to write them ;)

Acid, Warhead, or Crossfire?

Captain Corky-I have several lists I keep. Top ten qb's of all time is one.

Ben-I will have it to you soon.

Nonny- I know of Fargo rock city, but have never read it. My library does not have it so I would have to buy it. I have read some reviews that talk about the author realizing the bands he likes are a joke and I don't like that angle. Also I grew up as a metal fan in the 80's in an even smaller area so I may not need to read this because I lived it.

Steve-None of those.

T-bone-You have your top 100 song list going now.

kim jong Ramone-Welcome.

I have done a few lists on my site, mostly last year before I settled into my pattern. I think I even did a top hair metal albums list.

Oh boy, the year I was born, how exciting. I think I would have to put "Master of Puppets" at the number 1 spot.

David- The hair metal list must have been before I started reading your blog.

Jeff-The year you were born? Yes, rub it in on us old geezers.
