Favourite Decade for Music?
 
Each decade seems to be dominated by a certain genre/artist... which is your favourite?

Ceremony 02-26-2013 05:22 PM

90s

Pulp
Pearl Jam
Radiohead
Will Smith

Oops, clicked and voted 70s, meant 60s.

90s close behind.

weems 02-26-2013 05:43 PM

90's easily

Trance Kuja 02-26-2013 05:56 PM

Every decade has great music, and they are too different to justify a single answer.

Big Poppa Puck 02-26-2013 06:07 PM

Definitely not the 2010's. Other than that it's all subjective based on what you like/hold old you are.

For me as a 21 year old Rap/Hip-Hop/R&B fan probably the mid 90s-mid-00s.



(Yes I know that first statement contradicts itself.)

every decade finds great music

Kyle Doobas 02-26-2013 06:17 PM

I always saw 1965-1975 as something of a 'golden age' for music. You'd be hard-pressed to find a genre that wasn't seeing some of its greatest records released in that time frame. Even a lot of the classic hip-hop artists from the '90s heavily sampled bands/artists from that era.

I also remember reading an article last year about a study that was done on popular music over the past 50 years, and they found that, in terms of the chords, melodies and instrumentation used, there's significantly less variation nowadays than there was in the '60s/'70s.

Bubba Thudd 02-26-2013 06:19 PM

Even though bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin formed in the late 60's, they didn't really get going strong until the 70's.

The 70's is my favorite genre, for music like Sabbath, Led Zep, Pink Floyd (were great in the 60's, too), Rush, etc.

WarriorOfGandhi 02-26-2013 06:20 PM

definitely 2010. Bieber, Skrillex, Rebecca Black, Carly Rae Jepson, etc.

Yes, absolutely!

60s & 70s are very close. Followed closely by 90s. Although the 50s also had a lot of good music as well. 80s were good. Everything after the 90s has been crap.

oh come, if you're being serious and that's all you take away from the 90's then *fart noise* :thumbd:

it was so much more than that.

dance/house/techno/electronica music and DJ culture exploded, actually good pop music, the huge amount of awesome one hit wonders, hip hop & rap music came of age with a bunch of legendary artists in their primes, enormous amounts of hugely influential, contemporary rock and alternative music... 90's were truly awesome.

Good point. And I think I'm just going to leave it at that.

Hippasus 02-26-2013 07:45 PM

60s: free jazz
70s: punk rock
80s: hardcore, grindcore, ambient, thrash metal, stoner rock
90s: death metal, black metal, doom metal

90s overall, 80s for influence.

This really doesn't seem right...

DennisReynolds 02-26-2013 07:54 PM

mid 90s to now

Yes, but that one doesn't have the 2010's as an option ;)

WingsMike 02-26-2013 08:02 PM

For me, '01-'04 was the peak.

reckoning 02-26-2013 08:06 PM

Every decade had great music, but if I had to pick one it would be the 70s. The amount of classic albums from that decade is staggering:

The Stones best stuff was from the early 70s. For rock (that's now called 'classic rock') there was Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Neil Young, Bruce Springsteen. Soul? Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Sly & The Family Stone. Hard rock? Sabbath, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, BOC. Big-selling blockbuster albums? Rumours, Tapestry, Hotel California, Bat Out Of Hell. Plus the beginnings of punk (Clash, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Iggy) and new wave (Costello, Talking Heads, Blondie). And you can't forget about Joni Mitchell's Blue, or Dylan's Blood On The Tracks. Or Bob Marley. Or Queen. Or The Who....

Porn* 02-26-2013 08:11 PM

for me...

70's
90's

Tim Calhoun 02-26-2013 08:45 PM

2000s, but that's because the current decade isn't over yet.
