    Don't like the 60s or 70s...

    80s- DAMN THIS IS HARD!!! Um...

    Metallica's ...And Justice For All, and Kill Em All

    90s- Megadeth's Rust In Peace and Exodus' Impact is Imminent is tied with Pantera's Cowboys From Hell

    00s- Exodus' The Atrocity Exhibition... Exhibit A, and Metallica's Death Magnetic

    10s- as of now, it's Exodus' Exhibit B: The Human Condition and Evile's Five Serpants Teeth.

    *******This is subject to change by the end of the decade and more than likely will*******
