Music's best decade?

Which decade brought about the best music? Personally I think ever since the calendar turned to 2000, the music has sucked out loud. But how would everyone rank the last 5 decades?

60's
70's
80's
90's
00's



I've got it 90's, 80's, 60's, 70's, then 00's.

You need to dig further. There's real gems in 00's

imo, 00's following by 90's.

-00's
-90's
-70's
-80's
-60's


it goes that way for me.

I don't like 00's commercial crap.

But I'm in total love with its Indie, Post-Rock and Electro-Rock sound.

I love music from every decade and genre, but 90's, 00's, and to some extent 80's music possesses such a nostalgiac feeling over me, so they definitely get my vote.

Telling me to choose one of these decades over the other is near impossible, but it would probably be:

1a) 90s
1b) 00s
2) 80s
3) 70s
4) 60s

Popular music was revolutionized in the 1960's. There's never been anything like it. The Beatles and Dylan were the pointy end of the spear, and music went from being 3 or 4 chords and simple boy meets girl - girl leaves boy lyrics to complicated yet palatable melodies and lyrics that ran the gamut from political to introspective to psychedelic. Nearly all popular music since has been influenced by the 60's. Everyone's entitled to their opinion though, but it's my opinion that there really is no answer other than the 60's.

90s was the bomb. Remember as a kid listening to some legendary classic dance songs(it was on radio). For instance, Sandstorm in '99, Ace of base(along with euro dance) as well. I'm no dance freak, I used to enjoy slipknot, which came around in the 90s as well. Yes, these are personal preferences but there's also Nirvana as an example. Highly influence bands IMO. Now it's just whoever they can market. Example, britney spears in the 2000s. **** that at a certain point. There's some good music now no doubt, but seems like all I hear is same nonsense over and over, then that nonsense remixed and turned into techno. I wouldn't take the 00s away but theres some classics that stuck with me in the 90s(i was born in '87) and considering my age, I didn't get a chance to appreciate past generations. My preferences listed above aren't really for debate, if you don't like the bands...thats okay, I just grew up listening to them.

This and This. Followed by the 70's of course.

No doubt the 60's are excellent. From the Beatles, to the Stones, Joplin, Hendrix, James Brown, The Supremes...the list goes on and on. I just don't necessarily enjoy the older stuff as much as 80's and 90's rock...60's was either Motown or stuff that would be considered light rock today. I mean, the Beach Boys and the Monkees were huge...but it just doesn't stand the test of time.

1960 - 1969
1990 - 1999
1970 - 1979
2000 - 2009
1980 - 1989

This is how I'd rank the decades

I understand that you and others may not care for all the music; I don't either, but the fact is that no other decade influenced the music of the future right up until today than the 60's. Early 70's metal and all its more recent offshoots: hair bands from the 80's, Grunge in the 90's -- all those genres have their roots in the 60's. It was a true music revolution in the 60's. Everyone who had a couple bucks got a guitar and got together with their friends in the garage -- just like today, but that's when it started.

In addition, the revolution extended into live performance and studio technology. The Beatles are the best example of using the developing studio technology to its fullest. They created sounds people had never heard before. Probably the earliest example of guitar feedback being intentionally recorded and used is Lennon's guitar at the beginning of "I Feel Fine". That was 1964. Lennon also called "Ticket To Ride" (1965) the first ever heavy metal song (or words to that effect). I'm not sure I agree with that but I see where he's coming from. It was a very heavy song for the time. Helter Skelter, Yer Blues, and a few others were much heavier but they were also later and also demonstrated the progression that influenced later music and its progression.

And good catch on The Supremes. I forgot to mention Motown and the Philly sound. Funk was born in the 60's too.

As you can probably tell, I'm fairly passionate about music.

I know this won't be a popular opinion, but a good chunk of the music I enjoy is from the 2000's. I'm also a huge fan of early 90's alternative rock, mid-late 90's melodic death metal, and 80's thrash metal.

For me it was a tie between 60's and 70's, went for 60's. While I love some 80's stuff, it also has to be decade that produced the most crap - or maybe 00's is.

This is how I'd rank the decades
I'd put 2000-2009 in the last place, last decade has produced nothing put basically recycled audiotuned crap. The fact it makes the 80's sound good says something. Not that it was bad, I've noticed myself loving 80's music more and more. It's just that 00's managed to take the worst sounds and songs from the 80's and make them sound even worse.

60s (music was basically revolutionized during this decade and evolved into basically every genre)
90s (Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Alice in Chains, Oasis, Tool, Radiohead, Foo Fighters, etc.)
70s (great rock groups, Queen, Zeppelin, Kiss, Sex Pistols, Cheap Trick, etc., some of the pop stuff was okay to)
80s (most of the pop stuff was rubbish, but some gems can be found and most of it is catchy)
00s (Mainstream Rap was starting to die although good underground rap, 98% mainstream rock groups have the same exact sound either post-grunge Nickelback type sound or bad metal, pop music was a disaster, some of the indie stuff was good, but alot of it sounded the same as the other artists)

Ken Dryden said something to the effect that the "golden age" of sports is when you're 14. I bet the same can be applied to music, but with a greater range, something like when you're 13-30, unless you're like me and like classical, then you have a good 500 years to choose from
