  NationMaster.com - Encyclopedia: Rock and Roll
Rock and roll (also spelled rock 'n' roll, especially in its first decade), is a genre of music that emerged as a defined musical style in the Southern United States in the 1950s, and quickly spread to the rest of the country, and the world (rhythm sample).
Rock is a form of popular music, usually featuring vocals (often with vocal harmony), electric guitars, a bass guitar, and a strong back beat; other instruments, such as the saxophone, trumpet, and trombone are common in some styles, however, horns have been omitted from newer subgenres of rock music since the 1990s.
Rock and roll was seen as commercial pop, but subverted the race barriers in the U.S., and with the British invasion the reverence of groups for fl Rhythm and blues stars brought these stars a wider public.

 Talk:List of grunge music albums - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
I've already made the shift at list of hip hop albums, and I will be doing the same at list of rock and roll albums soon.
If you'd like to change the list format, propose something else (I don't like the current list either, so please do), but your removals made the lead false and substituted your unsourced opinions for the verifiable allmusic opinions, which is clearly a step downward per WP:CITE.

 Facts about portishead   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In spite of the band's media-shyness, the album was a big hit in both Europe and the United States, as were the singles from the album, "Glory Box" and "Sour Times".
Their second, self-titled album, Portishead, was released in 1997, of which the single "All mine" was drawn.
There have been rumours of a third album to be published in 2003, possibly to be called Alien, but as of mid 2003, no such record has been released, and Portishead's official site dismisses the rumour as such: "We have noticed that there is some confusion on an album release called "Alien".

All the lists are self-described as rock and roll (or rock or rock music or other variants, though not more specific substyles like hard rock), though some would more commonly be described as reggae, blues, calypso, jazz, soul, country, funk, heavy metal or hip hop.
Many of the lists are ranked, but this is not taken into account -- all albums on a list are included with the same cross-reference number, whether they are ranked #1 or #100 on that particular list.
