List Rules This list includes studio albums only, so if you add an album make sure it's a proper studio release.

This Crowbar discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Crowbar albums can be found at the top of the list. Since they’re such an influential band, let’s rank the best Crowbar albums, with the help of your votes. Formed in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1990, Crowbar quickly became leaders of the sludge metal genre, notably with Odd Fellows Rest (1998) and Broken Glass (1996). 

To make it easy for you, we haven't included Crowbar singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Crowbar album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Make sure you don't just vote for critically acclaimed albums; if you have a favorite Crowbar album, then vote it up, even if it's not necessarily the most popular.

List is made up of albums like their debut Obedience thru Suffering (1991) and their more recent release The Serpent Only Lies (2016). This list of popular Crowbar CDs has been voted on by music fans around the world, so the order of this list isn't just one person's opinion.
