    Best decade for music

    Has this already been done? If so I can't see it.

    60s by a long way for me, the Kinks can nearly win it on their own! (though it's a great shame Buddy Holly didn't make it that far).

      Voted 80's as that's when I was a teenager. Although all the decades were good - apart from the 00's - they were a bit crap !

      Notters: as the instigator of the most dire decade thread, you're as positive as I am negative. That said, agree that the 60s are tops, although I still think 66-74 is the best period for music: late Beatles, Stones' best period, Neil Young, Led Zep, Stevie Wonder in his prime, Otis Redding, Temptations, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, The Ohio Players, Velvet Underground, The Stooges, Can, Kraftwerk, Neu!, Nina Simone, Billie Holliday ... and much, much more.

      Agree with that period @Machiavelli, and you didn't even mention Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane or Joni Mitchell!

      Cannot beleive the 80s has more votes; it was all synthesisers and ponces wearing make-up.

      90's for me. Electronic golden era - if you like that sort of thing. Dance, House, Jungle, Techno was all born and came of age. Many, many drug fuelled classics.

      Also, in my opinion, some of the greatest rock bands of all time in the 90's - too many to mention from the US, but it was also a golden age for Britpop.

      It was also a golden age for hip-hop. The likes of Jurassic 5, tupac, Wu-tang, etc

      Bloody love synthesizers and ponces so 80s for me. A decade that really went for it in music and fashion.
