KROQ posts “Top Ten Albums of the 90’s” list

Guillermo, one of the contributors on the official website of the legendary L.A. radio station KROQ, has posted an interesting list called “Top Ten Albums of the 90’s“. He lists albums by bands like Iron Maiden, No Doubt, Metallica, The OffspringBlink-182 and The Aquabats. Here’s what he had to say:

“The 90’s was more than an era of watching Saved by the Bell Saturday mornings while you used your beeper to communicate with your friends. It was an era full of awesome music that we’ve been playing here on KROQ every weekend and I’ve been loving every minute of it!

I wanted to do something special to commemorate our 90′s weekends, so I pulled out my portable CD player and started listening to all the albums I owned so that I can compile my ton ten albums from the 90’s.”
