It's always nice to have some good background music on while you're having some tasty brews. So what are some of your favorite albums to have on while you're tossin' 'em back? Some of mine are:

Bruce Springsteen - The River
Miles Davis - Miles Ahead
The Misfits - Collection

Major league tossin' 'em back...

40 years ago, when I was a drinker, serious beer drinking started with albums the likes of The J. Geils Band's "Full House" or "Bloodshot" and worked up to a contest of how many beers can you power down without spewing during Jeff Beck Group's version of the song "Going Down".

Back in my drinking days they all were favorite drinking albums! Being more specific I would say-

Still Got The Blues-Gary Moore
Any Black Sabbath album from Black Sabbath thru Born Again
Any Iron Maiden album from Iron Maiden thru Fear Of The Dark
Any Judas Priest album from Rocka Rolla thru Defenders Of The Faith and Painkiller

Old AC/DC by a wide margin...followed by old Van Halen.

'Have a Drink on Me' was the death knell during drinking games that required a shot every time the stereo produced the word 'drink'.

Swordfishtrombones>Rain Dogs>Frank's Wild Years and Nighthawks at the Diner are great Waits records for me when I drink..and I agree with Doctor Metal's answer with Old AC/DC and Van Halen, but old Judas Priest(74-79) and Black Sabbath(70-78) are other ones as well. Might as well include Schenker era UFO and Uli Jon-era Scorpions, too...and Iron Maiden(80-88) is in there too...I don't necessarily have to be drunk to listen to these examples, though! Haha...

Wish I'd been to Dave Peggs' 50th birthday party back in the ninties as Ric Sanders told me that Peggy drank 50 beers that day. "Why Don't We Get Drunk And Screw" always seemed (to me) as the proper song to get blotto to...

WOOF EDIT: That's a Jimmy Buffett song I mention above. I do remember folks back then that would get drunk to EVERY Jimmy Buffett song they heard.

Alas, I've been dry too many years. As I recall though, you couldn't do much better than:

T.REX: Electric Warrior
ROLLING STONES: Exile on Main Street
SEX PISTOLS: Never Mind the Bollocks Here's The Sex Pistols
FEAR: The Record
DEAD KENNEDYS: Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables
THE CLASH: London Calling -or- Sandinista! (if you didn't nod off before the end of side 3 or so)

As a wedding DJ, I actually had a couple request the Buffett song for their reception...yeah, it was a class act all the way.

For my money, the first two George Thorogood albums (s/t and Move It On Over) are great bar music start to finish...

Worst wedding moment was about 15 years back when the bride's brother was too drunk and sang "White Wedding" to his sister and fell off the bandstand before it was over (too bad that bandstand wasn't higher!)
