Some of the albums that turn 20 in 2023 still sound as fresh today as they did when they were first released.

The White Stripes introduced us to a “Seven Nation Army” on Elephant, while blink-182 gave us one of the most infectious hooks ever on their self-titled LP. The music world got its first look at Shinedown, and Jane’s Addiction returned with new music after a 13-year absence. Oh…and then Metallica released St. Anger, which continues to be a point of contention within the band’s fanbase to this day.
