Rolling Stone's top 500

Stole idea from voleuse. Rolling Stone rated the top 500 albums of all time, and I don't know why you'd care, but here are the ones I have:

1. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles (My parents have it, actually, but I've pretty much memorized it.)
3. Revolver, The Beatles
5. Rubber Soul, The Beatles
10. The Beatles ("The White Album"), The Beatles
14. Abbey Road, The Beatles (Again: my parents actually...)
17. Nevermind, Nirvana (Used to have it. Think my sister has it now. Have mentioned before that I don't really care for this album, though.)
20. Thriller, Michael Jackson (Had the tape when I was in 4th grade.)
26. The Joshua Tree, U2 (I believe the tape is somewhere in my older possessions. Maybe.)
35. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, David Bowie (OK, actually I don't have this. But I think I've heard all the songs, and I *want* to own it...)
43. The Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd (Think my sister has this one now too.)
59. Meet the Beatles, The Beatles
62. Achtung Baby, U2
86. Let It Be, The Beatles (Parents.)
96. Tommy, The Who (Own it? I was IN it! If community theatre counts for anything.)
113. The Who Sell Out, The Who
136. Tim, The Replacements (My husband has the tape somewhere.)
162. OK Computer, Radiohead (Think it's in the glove compartment of the car at the moment, as a matter of fact.)
178. Greatest Hits, The Byrds (I have some Byrds best-of, anyway.)
197. Murmur, R.E.M.
207. Ten, Pearl Jam (No idea where this CD is now, though.)
216. The Queen Is Dead, The Smiths (I have all the songs from it, so I think this should count.)
247. Automatic for the People, R.E.M.
297. Weezer (Blue Album), Weezer
303. Grace, Jeff Buckley
326. Disintegration, The Cure (Yay! Cure made the list! Now where's Pulp?)
332. Help!, The Beatles ("You're gonna loooooose that girl...")
342. Violator, Depeche Mode
361. Substance, New Order
365. Louder Than Bombs, The Smiths
388. A Hard Day's Night, The Beatles
406. I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got, Sinead O' Connor
420. With the Beatles, The Beatles (Enough Beatles already!)
425. Changesone, David Bowie
428. Kid A, Radiohead
442. Boys Don't Cry, The Cure
470. Document, R.E.M.
472. Hysteria, Def Leppard (Had the tape in high school. Kinda surprised it made the list.)
480. Faith, George Michael (Believe we had this tape in high school too.)

(Final tally: 38 out of 500.)

Ugh. Pulp's "Different Class" should totally have been on the list somewhere. In the top ten, preferably. (And no Monkees? What?) But then my tastes seldom match the Grammy academy's.
