Happy 2019, friends! With yet another year behind us, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at the top 10 rock albums released in 2018.
Our list is loosely based on Billboard's Year-End Top Rock Albums but with a few modifications: We decided to only include new music released in 2018. So no reissues, greatest hits, soundtracks, or older albums charting high for one reason or another.
Some notable albums that charted highly, but aren't included below are Linkin Park's "Hybrid Theory," Nirvana's "Nevermind," The Beatles' "Abbey Road," and Metallica's self-titled album.
Not a fan of this list? Don't blame us! All we did was the research. Take it up with your fellow humans who helped these albums succeed! Billboard's year-end charts are a cumulative measure of a single or album's performance in the U.S.
So without further ado...
