Our Best Rock Albums of 2010 list features new albums by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Heart, Robert Plant and Elton John. The latter being a fabulous duo album between Elton John and Leon Russell who Elton John described as one of his biggest influences. The Heartbreakers Mojo album was their first album in eight years. It was a commercial success hitting number two on the Billboard Top 200. Heart’s Jupiter Darling was probably one of the most underrated releases of the year as the Wilson sisters rocked hard on this fabulous album. Robert Plant continued his solo career releasing a record that defined his desire to keep releasing music that sounded nothing like the material from his Led Zeppelin days.

As a new decade began, it starts to become harder to find classic rock sounding releases, as hip-hop and rap continued to dominate the commercial markets. Yet the new bands of the 21st century like Arcade Fire, Kings Of Leon, Tame Impala continue to generate buzz among the younger audiences giving them their own rock and pop music to call their own.
