2008 marked the triumphant return of Metallica, Mötley Crüe, and Neil Diamond
The year 2008 was the year of the comeback as many of rock & roll’s heavy hitters returned to the top of the charts. After taking five years off, Metallica returned back to their metal roots with the the release of Death Magnetic. This album made them the first band to have five consecutive albums debut at #1 on the charts and earned them three Grammy awards. Meanwhile, Mötley Crüe transported fans back to the raucous days of 80s glam rock with their first release in eight years, Saints of Los Angeles. Also, Guns N’ Roses failed to live up to they hype after FINALLY releasing their album that was originally supposed to be out in 1999, Chinese Democracy. But the biggest comeback of the year award goes to Neil Diamond. He proved that the 27th time is truly the charm as he earned his first number one album at 67 years young.
