Desert Isle Discs 

American Rockstar singer-guitarist Dallas Riffle picks five faves.

1. The Beatles, The Beatles

The Beatles weren't just four guys in matching suits singing "Yeah, yeah, yeah" -- they were fucking visionaries.

2. Def Leppard, Hysteria

A masterpiece. This record made me want to be a rock star.

3. Guns N' Roses, Appetite for Destruction

You couldn't fuck with this record when it was released, and you can't fuck with it today.

4. Sugar, Copper Blue

The first to combine searing punk and polished pop so seamlessly, you couldn't tell where one ended and the other began.

5. Jane's Addiction, Nothing's Shocking

Funky, sexy, raw, carefree, and a little awkward -- the perfect soundtrack for my high school summers.
