30. Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger (528 words)
Badmotorfinger is the sound of thunder, of the furies, of thousands of marauders pillaging the hills.
Songs often centered around surrealist notions such as "I close my eyes and walk a thousand years / a thousand years that aren't mine," as Cornell sings on "Room A Thousand Years Wide." But it was a new type of psychedelia, mixing heavy metal fantasy and meaty riffing with the decades-old psychedelic notions.
But upon retrospect, Badmotorfinger stands tall as the creative peak of one of the '90s greatest rock bands.
