Bob the Paper Guy's Greatest Year in the History of Rock and Roll

What was the best year in rock and roll? 

1967 saw the release of Sgt. Peppers' Lonely Hearts Club Band and Pink Floyd's debut The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. As Patrick Kapelanczyk wrote on our Facebook page,  "No contest. Monterey Pop Festival, Sgt. Pepper, and Cream . . . can't beat that!"

Prog rock lovers might pinpoint a year at the height of Jethro Tull and Yes powers. U2 broke through with Joshua Tree in 1987, and six years later Smashing Pumpkins put out Siamese Dream and Radiohead debuted with Pablo Honey. Is there any love for the aughts out there? 

At 6:20 a.m. Wednesday, Bob the Paper Guy weighs in on this week's Total Recall segment.

1991 had Pearl JAm's Ten, and Nirvana's Nevermind. That was a pretty seminal year. I know it's no "1969" but is sure seems pretty important nonetheless.
