The hands of the Doomsday Clock, for 55 years a symbol of nuclear danger, were moved two minutes closer to midnight February 27 reflecting the possibility of terrorism, relations between India and Pakistan, and other threats. The symbolic clock, kept by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, had been set at 11:51 since 1998. (Photo by Tim Boyle/Getty Images)

We’re on an important mission to secure rock’s greatest albums for posterity in Norway’s Global Music Vault, and we need your help.


Last week, I gave you a dozen iconic rock albums from the ’70s to choose from; you can see which albums ended up with the most votes here. This week, we shift our focus to the ’80s. It was difficult honing the list down to just 12 albums, but I think I have a pretty good cross-section of the decade’s best rock represented.


Take a look and choose the one album you’d protect from the apocalypse.
