It's an excellent album, and definitely one of the best, but the most popular?

I'm pleasantly surprised.

They must of polled just heavy metal fans because in the last 60 years Sargent Peppers and Dark Side of the moon plus Eagles Greatest hits all ranked just as well if not better than any heavy metal record or group.

I don't know what is worse, senseless heavy metal crap, or whingy hippy pretentious nonsense. Oh yes, Sting is worse than either.

I literally threw my fists in the air and yelled, "Yeah!" when I heard the news on Kevin and Bean. Metal will own the world!

I like Number of the Beast, but would have thought Queen Greatest Hits was number one.

Still, there you go.
