Ahoy, rock fans! Here at Classic Rock we’re preparing to celebrate our 300th issue, which will include – among other fun things – a rundown of the Top 30 rock albums released during our lifetime (i.e. since issue 1 came out in 1998). To do this, we need your votes. 

What albums do you think deserve to feature in such an elite selection? Who’s made the best new albums since Classic Rock began? We’ve amassed a list of 300(ish) that we think are pretty awesome, to get the ball rolling. Have a look, cast your mind back and vote for your favourites or add your own – you can pick up to 10 albums from this (long) shortlist.  

To be clear: the list below is by no means definitive. There have been thousands of great new albums over the last 24 years, so there will obviously be plenty of good ‘uns missing. If your winner isn’t included, simply add it in the box at the bottom. As long as it rocks, and was released in the last 24 years (since October 1998), it’s in the running.

We wouldn’t be here without your continued support, so we want this to be your top 30 as much as ours!

Votes close on Monday at 2pm UK time (9am EST). Make your voice heard, and happy voting!
