The Doors
12.  The Doors by The Doors

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (51 customer reviews)

All Of Us
21.  All Of Us by Nirvana (U.K. Group)

4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Tom Mcrae
22.  Tom Mcrae by Tom McRae

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (69 customer reviews)

Hail To The Thief
23.  Hail To The Thief by Radiohead

4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (203 customer reviews)

Bodysong (Greenwood)
24.  Bodysong (Greenwood) by Jonny Greenwood

Dance the Devil
25.  Dance the Devil by Frames
