Re: Rolling Stone (US) - The 80 Greatest Albums of 1980 (2020)

There's a large contingent of the music press that has successfully ret-conned London Calling as an 80s album. To those journalists: it's not. It came out on December 14th, 1979.

That being said, if it WERE an 80s album, it would be the best 80s album, so it's not like I care all too much.
