Rock album/artist quiz

I say this today and thought it was pretty cool. Don't know if it's been posted before, but see what you can do with it. There's 54 total, and you have to get both the artist and album title correct to get a point. I got 28 with minimal help from the internet...as in recognizing the album cover and knowing what artist it is, but not necessarily being able to remember the title of the album.

Exactly. Like the one with the razor blade. I've seen that one many times in the past, but I just can't place who it is.

Stalled out at 36, referring only to my own records and memories of flipping through racks of butt-rock at Peaches; got all but 4-5, 7, 9, 12, 15, 17-19, 22-23, 25, 30, 33, 38, 43, 46 and 54. WTF was Hawkwind doing in that bunch?

I don't know why I didn't figure that one out, pretty sure I had a copy at one time, same with Paranoid. I must be letting the cropping throw me off. So now you guys' help I'm up to 41.

Just from looking at it, I can get just about all of them but - 7, 9, 15, 18, 23, 28 & 35. Either because there's not enough of the cover showing, or I can't quite remember the correct album title.

Shit... I actually got more of those right than I thought. The site refused to acknowledge some of them, row 1 #6.

Seems like it's kind of screwy in accepting correct answers. I had to click around a lot to get it score me properly.
