Top Ten Years for Music

The Contenders: Page 2

21 2013

Everyone's just hating because it's not from the 1900s. This was the last year pop music was good. favorite = Counting Stars.

The two good albums I remember from this year are Infestissumam by Ghost and 13 Black SAbbath - SoldierOfFortune

Why does the majority of the music from the 2010s suck?

Is this year being on the list a joke? Because if it is then it's not funny.

24 1999

This is the year that supernatural released by santana and ranked number one for long weeks on the chards and they won 8 grammy awards in 2000 and bruce dickinson returns back in the band what great comeback

The creation of dubstep! Nice year!

HOW IS THIS SO LOW? It may not have been a great year for music (with the exception of Californication by RHCP), but multiple fantastic bands and singers released their first public albums and EPs that year, letting it be known that they would be to force to be reckoned with. 1999 gave birth to them. - Songsta41

Best year for music ever. So many great songs released that year and overall it was a great year for everything.

Here's the list of all the great songs of that year:
Eiffel 65 - Blue
blink 182 - All The Small Things
Gigi D'Agostino - L'Amours Toujours
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Scar Tissue
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Otherside
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication
Smash Mouth - All Star
The Bloodhound Gang - The Bad Touch
Bomfunk MC's - Freestyler
Darude - Sandstorm

And I'm pretty sure that there are many more great songs from that year.

Alice In Chains, Beastie Boys, definitely Leppard, Dr. Dre, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Nine Inch Nails, Pantera, Prince, Rage Against The Machine, Sublime, Tool, Stone Temple Pilots, and White Zombie all had GREAT ALBUMS in '92.

The year Dirt was released... and any year Layne Staley releases something is a year that's good. - Lucretia

The year Three Days Grace started!

26 2004

The year Ciara came out with one two step

Arcade fire, mad villainy, green day, the killers. what a great year.

27 2012

Unpopular opinion, but 2012 was the best year in pop music. It was before pop (at the least the bad pop) lost meaning in their lyrics and creativity.

Should be number 1. Coldplay's Paradise is my favorite from this year.

Second favorite year someone forgot 2017

28 2001

The Birth of Gorillaz, what more can I say?

29 1979

The Wall. The Wall. - vr46

30 2002

Nelly hot in here dilemma
New found Glory My friends over you

THE Eminem SHOW!

31 1968

1968 was one of my favorite years in rock music, for example the beatles released their next number one selftitled album or the white album, the rolling stones recorded beggars banquet that their song sympathy for the devil became a major hit and very important track for their tours. Also the beatles recorded the first heavy metal song called helter skelter and it became an iconic hit for metal bands who covering the track, groups like motley crue and aerosmith that are the only popular bands who cover this metal masterpiece. On the hand, the beatles became the influence of heavy metal that many groups formed bands like led zeppelin, black sabbath, judas priest, urian heep and many more.

October of 1968 saw the following on the charts AT THE SAME TIME;
The Beatles
Elvis Presley
Frank Sinatra
The Rolling Stones
Marvin Gaye
Jimi Hendrix
The Beach Boys
The Doors
The Temptations
James Brown
The Four Tops
Ray Charles
Janis Joplin
... And many more HOF acts.

32 2007

As probably the only person who liked this year, in just the top 40 there were a TON of great songs. From Linkin Park, Timbaland, Nelly Furtado, Fergie, Justin Timberlake, Fall Out Boy, and Rihanna, to name a few. - WonkeyDude98

An amazing year for Indie music. The Shins, Spoon, Modest Mouse, and Deer and the Headlights all came out with their detestably best albums this year

Three legendary classic rock bands reunited for at least one show this year. The bands are namely: Led Zeppelin, Genesis, and The Police. - Oneside

Emo, Scene and Goth ruled around this era! Even MySpace was still a thing. Now SnapChat will be long gone pretty soon just like them.

This year sucks because of Megan Trainor HAHA

The year defining hits were actually good, the bad songs charted low. Also, Uptown Funk

Didn't entirely suck, but still not great.

Wattpad @melodramas_

Froot - Marina and the Diamonds
Cry Baby - Melanie Martinez

35 1976


AC/DC sold new album high voltage in international release worldwide and dirty deeds done dirt cheep album. Also led zeppelin album pressence which is the sixth number one album with pure sales and a day at the races by queen and deep purple disbanded because dave coverdale left the band to joying whitesnake and talkbox invented by peter frampton

36 2016 2016 (MMXVI) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2016th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 16th year of the 3rd millennium, the 16th year of the 21st century, and the 7th year of the 2010s decade.

Rock has died out at the time, but Metal somehow still remains. Metallica and Megadeth both made their next albums this year, and while both suck compared to the 80s music, it can be hard to decide which would be better. Actually, I take that back. Dystopia will make Hardwired... To Self Destruct look like trash, like Endgame did to Death Magnetic.

This is the year where hopefully pop music dies and people start to realize all the great alternative hits being released this year instead.

"Best year for music" Yeah right. Only 1 good song I've heard this year.

Terrible year for music on the charts
Great year for indie and rap though
