Blue Oyster Cult Albums Ranked Worst to Best

Blue Oyster Cult have never been a paint-by-numbers rock ‘n’ roll band.

Often called the thinking man’s heavy metal band, Blue Oyster Cult  took a more artful and literary approach to their hard-rock music, showing off smart and intriguing lyrics to songs like “Transmaniacon MC,” “O.D.’d on Life Itself” and “She’s as Beautiful as a Foot.” Their sound wasn’t cut from the usual blues-derived heaviness either. Instead, the band integrated elements of psychedelia, folk and pop into their hard-edged rock ‘n’ roll.

Our list of Blue Oyster Cult Albums Ranked Worst to Best includes more than a dozen studio albums the band has released since its formation in Long Island in 1967.

Like any band that’s survived for 50 years (and with only a short break since then), Blue Oyster Cult have hit the highs, and lows, of commercial success while maintaining their own distinct path every step of the way.

They’re more than a one-hit wonder — “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper” was their huge hit — or a joke on Saturday Night Live; Blue Oyster Cult have a long history with great songs that have stood the test of time. But where to start? We have answers. So check out our list of Blue Oyster Cult Albums Ranked Worst to Best above to explore this band’s rich history.
