Elvis Doesn't Get Much Respect 

Time magazine recently published "The All-TIME 100 Albums," a list of what it considers the 100 greatest and most influential albums. So how many do you think Elvis has? 10? Five? Nope. One. The King has only one album in Time magazine's Top 100.

Of course, Elvis was more known for his singles, so it's not altogether surprisingly that the album Time chose was "30 Number 1 Hits."

Time divides the albums by decade and Elvis ranks in the 2000s, alongside Hank Williams, Muddy Waters, and Kanye West.

See the full list here, or just wait until TIME LIFE starts running late-night infomercials on the inevitable 6-disc set.

UPDATE: Our thanks to Fishkite, who correctly noted that there are indeed two Elvis albums on the list. Our bad.
