    Music's Best Decade

    Let's get a bit of action going around this bit of the board with one of our polls. These things always seem to go down well, and this time it's the ultimate question.


    Taken as a whole - so you can consider anything you like - what decade has the best popular music?

    If you pick 'other' than please specify by replying.

    I love sludge metal, groove metal, nu metal and grunge so I'm gonna go with 90s.

    For me it is very hard, in terms of influence on the music I love it is hard to go past what the 60s did for rock. The 70s also gets a shout out for that reason too. However when I actually look at the music I listen to most it keeps coming back to the 00s. It is of course the years I was in my teens and very early 20s so it is a little stereotypical to pick that era of your life but I just can't go past it when it comes to my personal favourites.

    Everything in the 80s sounds awesome to me. Every other decade I am dictated by a genre or two.

    I nearly picked the 80s just for Thrash Metal e.g Metallica, Slayer etc but there was also some really, really bad pop music from the 80s I can't forgive.

    Although if I'm looking at it that way, all the boy/girl bands from the 90s make me wanna puke.

    It is funny how in the popular version of music history as told by the the big music history chroniclers like Rolling Stone & VH1 that after the creativity of the 60s and 70s the 80s were largely filled with over produced music that was toppled by its own hubris. According to that version of music history it wasn't until Nirvana and grunge in the 90s that music got back on track.

    Not something I agree with but what you guys said certainly shows how flimsy that popular narrative is.

    I do love me some cheesy pop!!

    If I was going specific genre wise I'd be looking at Soul/Motown in the 60s and 70s.

    The 90s I was aged 10-19 so it's prime memory music. Obviously got caught up in the Brit pop scene a bit and love me some 90s R&B however the pure stench of dance music through the decade kinda sets a general tone that brings it down. Although I will admit to buying 2 Ace of Base and 2 Vengaboys CDs back in the day

    A tough one to pick. I started getting in to rock in the 90s, but really found the majority of the bands I identified with the most in the 00s. And so many albums in that decade that have made me just not like modern music that much.
