The list author says: "No artist is repeated on my decade lists in order to represent more of them. I add to these a little at a time forgive me if its a little bare now. This isn't yet in order. I usually don't include soundtracks but its kind of hard in the 70s to represent seminal disco otherwise. Opening it up also adds opportunity for reggae and pop (Harder They Come, Grease) so I just did it. Also, unless other decade lists I used a compilation because you can't have the Buzzcocks without it being Singles Going Steady. The 70s were all about breaking the rules so I have a live albums here too for good measure. On a side note, if you are reading this and are under the impression I forgot about Meatloaf and Peter Frampton you have been misinformed. Oh and Kiss was close but didn't make it."
