The top 10 rock albums of 2008

The top 10 rock albums of 2008: "Rock music in 2008 was dominated by relics from the past, most returning with respectable albums: Guns 'n Roses, AC/DC, Metallica and, er, Coldplay. But there was better stuff to be found, even if it didn't, like 'Chinese Democracy,' take 17 years to create.

With apologies to fans of Kings of Leon and Bon Iver, here are the top 10 rock albums of the year. (Note: Radiohead's 'In Rainbows,' given away in 2007 and released traditionally in 2008, was rated last year, when it topped this list.)"
