The greatest year for not only Prog, but Music in General! The Dark Side Of The Moon, Brain Salad Surgery, Tubular Bells, Selling England By The Pound. Larks' Tongues in Aspic, Quadrophenia, Tales From Topographic Oceans, and Over-Nite Sensation. - Beatlesboy9

Awesome year for music! The Dark Side of the Moon, Selling England by the Pound, and Larks' Tongues in Aspic were released this year. - SammySpore

Not to Mention Tales from Topographic Oceans, Tubular Bells, Quadrophenia, Brain Salad Surgery and A Passion Play and Space Ritual. By far, the greatest year of progressive rock. - patrickfloyd

Dark Side of the Moon, Band on the Run, Houses of the Holy. Need I say more. (Also Queen came into existence)

31 1979
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

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

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

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.

33 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
Cream
The Doors
The Temptations
James Brown
The Four Tops
Ray Charles
Janis Joplin
... And many more HOF acts.
CASE CLOSED!

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.

Two good albums: Meliora (Ghost) and Book of Souls (Iron Maiden) - SoldierOfFortune

35 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.

36 2000

Will the Real Slim Shady Please make more songs. The Marshall Mathers LP ROCKS! The album that saved 2000

37 1988

Straight Outta Compton! (Gangster rap is born) - trtrtrt

The start of N.W.A n Gangsta rap

38 1978
39 1972
