Top 100 Hard Rock and Metal Albums of 2017


2017 was a sad year with lots of deaths in music, but it was an amazing year for new Hard Rock & Heavy Metal releases. We had a very hard time keeping up with the submissions this year here at Pure Rock Radio. It would have been quite easy to come up with a Top 200, or 100 Hard Rockers and 100 Metallic gems, but we used some restraint and went with our Top 100 Hard Rock & Metal albums of 2017 based on Airplay and Requests this year, plus plain 'ol ass kickery!

Do you agree or disagree? Did we miss anyone?? Comment BELOW this article.

Congrats to all of this year's Heavy Hitters of 2017!!
