I only got AIDS from listening to God Hates Us All. And Lulu.

I like every album mentioned by everyone in this thread, including God Hates Us All and The Great Southern Trendkill.

But not Lulu, which has some listenable background music on it and not much else.

This. I have very Queen studio and live album, and The Game is one of my go-to discs, along with The Works.

It still amazes me that it was not Back In Black, but this one that got to number 1 in the USA, despite the latter being one of the best selling records (and one of my favorites) ever...

Anyway, the casual AC/DC-fan will only know the title track, but why not listen to Let's Get It Up or Inject The Venom? More commercial than BIB, but oh so catchy. Sadly, the album has been overlooked by the band ever since the FOTATR-tour ended, and even during that tour, maximum 2-3 songs from it were played...

Favorite track: For Those...
Hey look, an album that's actually good!

But yea, this album's greatest crime is following one of the greatest and most successful rock albums ever. Unless you manage to come up with something even bigger you're kind of fucked. Sad, because at the very least its better than Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap.

Of course. But it's not even the best album in this thread.

The 8th studio album. Yes, we all know Crazy Little Thing Called Love & Another One Bites The Dust, that famous club hit with the cool bass part.

But why don't you have a listen to their best ballads, Save Me & Play The Game? or Dragon Attack, Queen in it's purest hardrock form?

The Game is also the end of an era, in the sense that the following tour would be their last with only the four members. Go watch Queen Rocks Montreal to see what that meant.

Favorite track: Dragon Attack
Never listened to this album in full, my mom has it and based on the comments I should probably take a listen. The Works though is probably more underrated IMO, and I also believe A Day At The Races doesn't get enough credit just because it was right after A Night At The Opera (and Races is their best album).

No, it's not better than Deeds.

@ Raven, thx for the unending support.

No, it's not like older Overkill, but it IS my favorite album of theirs.

This has always been a riff-driven band, and here they deliver in a "heavy groovy" kind of way... I also like the backing vocals, especially in Long Time Dyin'.

Favorite track: Save Me
I just found this thread and agree with this choice, although I think you could call any Overkill '90s album underrated. The Killing Kind was awesome too and IMHO better. From the Underground... was great although I still try to pretend it doesn't have Promises.

Imo, Overkill is underrated in general.

It's been a long time that I listened to The Killing Kind, thx for reminding me
