Top Ten Best Decades for MusicCerealGuy
The Top Ten
The 80s was the best time ever for music! The birth of thrash metal! Megadeth, Metallica, Slayer, etc. Even pop music at that time was amazing with artists like Michael Jackson, Prince, Madonna, etc. - winner333
Everyone loves the '80's! I mean, I do really like Disco, but sometimes you really can't beat the 1980's! X-P - ScourgetheHedgehog
Awesome decade for music! So many songs from this era will be stuck in your head till the end of time. Shoutout to Vice City for making me appreciate this type of music. - Hafersten
The two highest selling albums are from the '80s, Thriller and Back in Black. - ParasN2000V 4 Comments
The 70's were the best. It had everything, all forms of Rock, Soul, Funk, Disco (which was far better than modern pop music), heavy metal before it became crazy and New Wave. What did the 1980's have? Only cheesy pop music (with the exception of MJ), crazy heavy metal and mostly bad Rock music. I'll admit the early 80's was good with New Wave and some decent Rock music, but the 70's was brilliant through the entire decade. - JamesNicholls
Stairway to Heaven, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Shine on You Crazy Diamond in the same decade... what more could you ask for!?! - paolosecci
I'm not saying the 70s were bad for music, but for a while, mainstream music was basically cheap comedic songs for some Reason. - Martinglez
I LOVE DISCO! Lol, I said enough! - ScourgetheHedgehogV 3 Comments
The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Bob Dylan, and so many more make the 60's the easy winner.
Even the 40's biggest star, Frank Sinatra, and the 50's biggest star, Elvis Presley had massive success and popularity in the 60's.
Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Tupac, Nas, Etc Great Decade For Music - FettiMC
For hip-hop definitely the 90's Nas, Pac, Biggie... I can see the 70s up there for rock Led Zep, Pink F, Queen, the Who - paolosecciV 1 Comment
Best year of all time for music, especially electronica.
This, to me, is one of the best overall decades. Great combination of the popular music that I enjoy the most: early jazz, sweet bands, the big bands, and swing. A lot of music on my playlist is from around this period.
