50+ Albums from your collection you couldn't do without
 
I know many of us here have large album collections, but I've often wondered what, if it came to it, would be the pick of my own personally that I couldn't do without.

The 50 or so go-to albums that I never tire of listening to and would have to keep at all costs.

So, what about the rest of you? Anything goes, including compilations and live albums.

I'm going to have an initial stab at it... in no specific order other than the order they come to mind:
[LIST=1][*]Testament - The Gathering[*]Pride & Glory - Pride & Glory[*]Halford - Resurrection[*]Zakk Wylde - Book of Shadows[*]Metallica - S&M[*]Ayreon - The Human Equation[*]Dream Theater - Train of Thought[*]Dio - Magica[*]Alice Cooper - Brutal Planet[*]Iron Maiden - Brave New World[*]Iron Maiden - Somewhere In Time[*]Megadeth - The World Needs A Hero[*]Overkill - Horrorscope[*]Saxon - Lionheart[*]Aerosmith - A Little South of Sanity[*]Ozzy Osbourne - No Rest For The Wicked[*]Paul Weller - Days of Speed[*]Black Sabbath - Heaven And Hell[*]Black Sabbath - Dehumanizer[*]Black Sabbath - Headless Cross[*]Black Sabbath - We Sold Our Souls For Rock 'N' Roll[*]Deep Purple - Abandon[*]White Zombie - La Sexorcisto[*]Hell - Human Remains[*]Iced Earth - Alive In Athens[*]Pentagram - Last Rites[*]W.A.S.P. - Headless Children[*]W.A.S.P. - Unholy Terror[*]Richie Kotzen - Into The Black[*]Alice Cooper - Classicks[*]KISS - KISS[*]KISS - Creatures of The Night[*]Damian Wilson - Live In Rehearsal[*]AC/DC - Stiff Upper Lip[*]Wino & Conny Ochs - Heavy Kingdom[*]AC/DC - Highway To Hell[*]Anthrax - Worship Music[*]Arena - Immortal?[*]Judas Priest - Metal Works[*]Judas Priest - Live In London[*]Tim "Ripper" Owens - Play My Game[*]Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction[*]Guns N' Roses - Chinese Democracy[*]Bruce Dickinson - The Best of Bruce Dickinson[*]Bruce Dickinson - Alive In Studio A[*]Bryan Adams - Waking Up The Neighbours[*]Queensryche - Operation: Mindcrime[*]Celtic Frost - Monotheist[*]Clutch - Clutch[*]Days of The New - Days of The New[*]Rammstein - Live Aus Berlin[*]The Almighty - Crank[*]Goatsnake - Flower of Disease[*]Candlemass - Doomed For Live[*]Motley Crue - Motley Crue[*]Spiritual Beggars - Ad Astra[*]Stuck Mojo - Southern Born Killers[*]Stuck Mojo - HVY1[*]The Scream - Let It Scream[*]Godsmack - The Other Side[*]Gojira - The Way of All Flesh[*]Grand Magus - Monument[*]Gov't Mule - The Deepest End[*]Iommi - Iommi[*]Amor - Amor[*]Killswitch Engage - Alive Or Just Breathing[*]The Workhorse Movement - Sons of The Pioneers[*]Skid Row - Slave To The Grind[*]Union - The Blue Room[*]Sixx:A.M. - The Herion Diaries[*]Randy Piper's Animal - Violent New Breed[/LIST]
And this is why I struggle. Trimming this down to 50 is hard, and there are a shit-ton of artists I love who aren't even represented (King Diamond, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Motorhead, Pain of Salvation, Pantera, Threshold, Down, Thunder, and so on).

Good luck trimming your own to 50...
