'Thriller' is without a doubt the most popular album on this list. The pop opus made Michael Jackson, who was already an icon in the eyes of the world, an even bigger one.

In 1984, Jackson received the Album of the Year Grammy for this sixth studio album. Legendary producer Quincy Jones collaborated entirely with the late singer to create the nine-track classic.

Every song became memorable on its own, with Jackson's music videos adding to the grand feel of each -- 'Thriller,' 'Beat It' and 'Billie Jean' to name a few. The era of 'Thriller' continues to influence artists today.
