1990s.

Because that's what I grew up with. So it just sounds "right" to me.

I think the 90s are overrated due to sentimental bias/the age of this board.

Another vote for 65-75 being the golden age.

The last 8-10 years have been a new golden age of metal in my opinion. So much great music in the last decade.

... and you can blame that on the 80's... which you can blame on the 70's... which you can blame on the 60's... etc.

You can't blame the 90's solely for the music we have now, it just doesn't work. I know for Nirvana who are arguably the "biggest" artist from the 90's, Kurt was influenced heavy by The Beatles (specifically Lennon)..

Lil Wayne has said that Nirvana was one of his favourite bands growing up, and they influenced him to become a musician.. Now, if it wasn't for John Lennon, Kurt Cobain may have never became a musician... so wouldn't that indirectly make John Lennon the reason we have Lil Wayne?

I agree with that except for the 2000s. Even though I was born in 1992 the 2000s was the music I grew up with. I think a lot of people tend to lean towards what they gre up listening to. And even though I have a favorite there is definitly music from each decade I can listen to.

I agree. Although I will say, consistent with movies, the 90s seemed to be more jam-packed with "good", fun, vaguely credible stuff, but for my money, not much of it was actually incredible or timeless. I see it as a quantity over quality decade (not that there weren't standouts).

I don't think he was talking about influences so much as "trends".

Although I would sooner blame the 80s. From my perspective, that's sort of when the general mainstream population started to shying away from being accepting of interesting music, instead embracing the cheesy (IMO, bad) pop stuff. I'm not saying this in absolutes, but I think it leaned more in the direction I wanted it to lean in the 60s/70s, and to a lesser extent, the 90s. Disco felt like the beginning of the end to me. I actually thought the 90s was more of a resurgence of intentions that I appreciated, I just don't think the bands pulled it off a fraction as well (a band like Nirvana is a good example of this, IMO)

If I had to pick any ten years, then it would be 1986-1996. The 90's and 80's are my favourite decades, in that order.

90s are solid, 60s are intense, but the 1970s is just unchallenged.

It's the one thing that decade had going for it.

Definitely the 90s. Great rock, great alternative, great rap, and that's right when country really hit its stride as well.

My personal favorite stretch is probably 1977 - 1987. I don't know, too hard to measure. I like a lot of the punk/postpunk stuff that came from those years.

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.
Plus Garth Brooks and Mariah Carey. Vanilla Ice and Hootie and the Blowfish.

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....
Don't forget Krautrock, the coolest genre on the planet.

The 00's had the most **** music and also the most good music. But if we're judging by mainstream then 00's were terrible.

The 90's, although the early 2000s sorta get lumped in with it. Basically 1995-2004 for me. All my favorite bands are from this era, and it was the golden age for hardcore, post-hardcore, emo, and alternative.

The 2000's and forward until the end of time are going to have negative bias attached to them for the sheer fact that accessibility and means of listening to music has evolved so much since the 90s, if that makes sense. I don't feel like getting into detail, lol.

1970s and 1980s ...easily.


the early part of the 90s was okay, but the crap really started to flow in the later half. things haven't recovered since.
