Top 10 Things that Make the 1970s Better Than the 2010s

A list of reasons why the 1970s were better than this current decade

The Top Ten

1 Better Music

Not only better bands, but also better solo artists. I mean, The Beatles broke up, so Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr all wrote great albums, David Bowie, etc. But god, was this the golden age of bands.
Queen, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Who, AC/DC, The Jackson 5, Chicago, Aerosmith, Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Bee Gees, The Rolling Stones, Black Sabbath, The Doors, ABBA and more. Insane.

These days, we can listen to the old stuff, while also listening to bands like The Mars Volta, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Leprous, Caligula's Horse, and the list goes on. Modern times allow us to listen to both the classic bands, along with the good bands from today.

In terms of the music I enjoy, I think it's significantly grown much better and more variable in sound over time, and although I enjoy a lot of songs from the 70's, I do love certain 2010's groups as well.

I mean you had awesome bands like Pink Floyd, Queen, Zeppelin, Rush, and Deep Purple. Today you have Post Malone, Drake, Niki Minaj, Bieber, Imagine Dragons, and Lil Pump. What happened?

2 Better Politics

Not *as many* political things affected the masses' view of their leaders negatively from what I heard.

Though I initially wanted Trump to be elected president in 2016, I will say Nixon and Ford are way better than Trump

All Trump did was say like 5 stupid comments/quotes and he's considered a Modern Hitler by liberals. Nixon literally was a crook responsible for a robbery and the scandal. How is he better?

3 Better Movies

Every decade has its great movies. Even though this decade seems more focused on remakes and sequels as a means of drawing attention, we have been given a number of enjoyable original ideas as well.

While I do like plenty of modern movies, I can't help but marvel at 70s classics such asThe Godfather, A New Hope, Jaws, The Exorcist, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and more.

4 Less Terrorism

Terrorism was still present in the past, but it just wasn't as overly exposed by the people as before.

5 Better Slang

Groovy sounds lit fam.

6 Better Climate

There were less natural disasters and much lower risk of global warming in the 70s than now.

And how do you know? You weren't alive back then so You can't say "There was better weather" Because you weren't alive back then.

7 Less Technology
8 Celebrity Deaths Were Less Frequent

People live longer these days but a lot of young celebrities die these days too.

That's because there were less celebrities that could die.

9 Less Racism

In Australia there definitely is less.

10 Better Sporting Events

Boxing was better.

As much as I don't care about sports nowadays, they were at least kind of interesting to watch back in the 70s
