Top Albums of the 20th Century
On March 7, 2001, The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) revealed the top ten songs from its list of the top 365 songs of the 20th century. According to the RIAA’s press release, the list was created “to promote a better understanding of America’s musical and cultural heritage in our schools.” Strangely, though, there were a handful of albums included on the list. I have listed the albums on this page and you can see the song list here.
