Classic Rock Albums to Hear Before You Die

I may be just a little nineteen-year old girl in the Heartland of America, but if there's one thing you don't mess with, it's my classic rock. This is a completely unofficial, random list of classic rock albums I think EVERYONE needs to hear. There's no doubt I forgot many and this is a very flexible "classic rock" list; I still have many years to learn the ways of classic rock. But I think that this is a good list to get any newbie started on the path to great music.
