11. S.O.D. Speak English Or Die (1985)

One of the greatest albums in heavy metal history, there is or was enough controversy surrounding this to pale even Body Count. Essentially, S.O.D is Scott Ian’s creation, and as much as I love Billy Milano, this is all about Scott Ian — the Anthrax guitarist and head honcho. Scott was also the one that came up with Sergeant D., seen here on the ever exquisite cover, and hence the entire output of S.O.D.
