Who puts together these lists?

No Stone Roses? REM's Murmur at only 27? And yes, Oasis should be on there somewhere.

At least they remembered Portishead's Dummy and Massive Attack's Blue Lines, but I'd put both those a lot higher.

Boy is a decent album, but calling it the best debut ever is a joke.

All that matters is that Boy is on top.

76. 50 Cent - Get Rich or Die Tryin'

100. Big Star - #1 Record

No.

(And I love Boy, but there's no way I'd put it at number 1).

Boy deserves to be recognized as one of the better debuts, but it's definitely not the best.

Guyz I don't understand why you are questioning this. Any time U2 wins an award or tops a list it is automatically the right decision, even if it isn't, because it's U2, how can you call yourselves U2 fans and question this?

Boy is great and maybe deserves that, but not on this list because:

No Oasis
No The Stone Roses
No Aerosmith

Conclusion: the list is ridiculous.
