The Strangeness of 'The Top Five'

I hate picking things for overall lists. Generally, everything I like has its own merits, and it's difficult to pick from such a huge list (especially music and video games, which is pretty much everything I care about). Plus, some albums or games get lost in my memory, and resurface much later. But I will try.

Top Five Albums (in no order)
1. NOFX - Punk in Drublic
-Just good old fashioned angry punk, with some politics tossed in.
2. System of a Down - Toxicity
-Pretty much my first really good album. Got it at the time I started finding music outside of the mainstream.
3. Megadeth - Rust in Peace
-Sterling drumwork, and maybe one of my favorite albums from the era. Prime example of old metal.
4. Blink-182 - Blink-182 (Tied with Take Off Your Pants And Jacket)
-Very experimental, in every regard: new lyrical direction, revamped sonically, and the drumwork was strange and fantastic, without getting stupid and unlistenable.
5. Lamb of God - Ashes of the Wake (Only because I can't say 'All their albums')
-The best American metal to exist. Period.

Come back in a bit when I do Top Five Video Games.
