Here we are, Über Röckers, at the arse end of another year. Another year where no matter what soulless shite the mass media tried to brainwash us into buying, no matter what bloated fun-sucker tried to con us out of hundreds of pounds to see their arena tour, no matter what disease or chemicals did their best to take our rock 'n' rotype-skull-flatll heroes away from us, there were still thousands of cool as fuck bands out there making cool as fuck albums and playing cool as fuck shows......

 

.......and that's where Über Röck comes in, to point you good people in the direction of bands and albums and gigs and news that might just have passed you by. To introduce you to the cool kids and try to get you to ignore the fuckwits.

 

With hundreds of albums reviewed on Über Röck during 2010 I just had to get the ÜR massive together to pick their choicest cuts of the year. What follows, in alphabetical order to avoid Blackie Lawless style hissy fits, is a mammoth list of the best albums of 2010 as decided by the coolest mofos on the planet. The coolest mofos, incidentally, who I would like to take this opportunity to thank for helping make this website as fucking badass as it is!!!! Long may we rule - I salute you \m/
