Top 5 Albums: Duran Duran

It's Duran Duran Day in Houston, everybody. Word has it that fans are already lining up at Warehouse Live for the band's sold-out club show, and you can bet that it will be a hot evening inside the venue until the last strains of "Rio" echo out onto the street after the lights come up.

We have been doing our Duran Duran homework, digging out our old copy of Decade from high school and scouring the band's catalog on Rdio to make a somewhat cognizant top five list of the band's output. No doubt you have your favorites, like our friend who loves 1997's Medazzaland. What a weirdo.

Anyhow, here's the top five Duran Duran albums you must own before you die, because not owning these Duran Duran albums is worse than death. See how we got all dramatic there?
