    since 1950

    how would you rank the decades in terms of music?

    here is how i would do it

    1. 1970s - punk, disco, classic rock and a little bit of everything
    2. 60s - a lot of good music but most of it was in the second half of decade
    3. 90s - nirvana, stp, rhcp, presidents of the us, and some other grunge and post-grunge stuff.
    4. 50s - a lot of good classic R&B music with guys like Chuck Berry and Sam Cooke but for every "Roll Over Beethoven" you had three "how much is that doggy in the window" type of songs and some of the most corny syrupy music that flat out sucked
    5. 80s - mostly crap but still some good stuff here and there
    6. 2000s - a decade that lacks creativity

    AC/DC, Van Halen, Aerosmith, ZZ Top, Def Leppard, Beastie Boys, U2, Metallica, Motley Crue, Queensryche, Red Hot Chili Peppers...there is plenty of love in the 80's.

    Sure, you had your Al B. Sure, Paula Abdul and Kool and the Gang, but every decade has some fail.

    Re: since 1950

    1. 60s - great stuff - starting with early Stones, Beatles, and Beach Boys to Woodstock era (Jimmy Hendrix, Creedence, etc.).
    2. 90s - started fast but ran out of gas (Pearl Jam, Offspring, Nirvana)
    3. 2000s - good but not great - like the 70s ... riding on the 90s coattails
    4. 1970s - my era, but not the best music - the decade that couldn't find itself
    5. 80s - some good (REM, Talking Heads) but lots bad (countless hair bands and rap)
    6. 50s - birth of rock, but not enough good stuff to compare

    I have been listing to the Dan all day-you tube. This is easily the highest grade rock group ever.

    Disagree with this one. Best musicians collectively and best music with the pinnacle of Steely Dan, it just doesn't get any better.

    Re: since 1950

    lets slightly change the topic of this thread. What is the worst decade for music and why?

    I think the 00s are the worst. Just listen to Kiss 107 FM and you'll know what I mean.

    Wow, you need to get out and experience music. I would kill myself if i listened to kiss. Not a good indicator of 2000's music. I feel sorry for you.

    If you're basing your opinion of this decade's music off of Kiss 107, you know nothing about this decade's music.

    I would say every decade except the 80's is almost even, imo, for it's music quality. The 70's might be a little bit ahead of the others, as artists like The Stones, Who, Neil Young, Zep, etc, were at the top of their games. The 80's has a lot of great music buried under terribly cheesy production techniques as well.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
