    70's, but the 60's, 80's, and 90's aren't without its charm either.

      I like the 10s. Debussy is awesome. The impressionist composer.

        I love prehistoric music.

        I mean you can't really appreciate music until you hear a group of cavemen banging away at rocks.

        How do you think rock n' roll was invented?

          The 60's was the best decade because Rock n' Roll became more of an art form than a pop form.
          The 70's is the second-best decade because of the many genres, but disco mostly dominated between 1976 and 1979.
          The 80's is the third-best because of one thing-MTV.
          The 90's was okay, but it faded after 1996.
          Now...music sucks!

              For me:

              1960-1996.

              After that, music just became shitty.


              Actually, when I was in middle school some prostitot told me this:


              "Why would anyone want to listen to 60s,70s,80s, and 90's? It's just mindless garbage. No one expressed themselves. Not like today. Today's music has class. Rap is king, and will put down anyone it feels. I hate anyone who like old music, because they're just dumb. They have no minds."

                overall i think 80s were the best. When it comes to dance music, the 90s were the best.

                  I guess its earliest incarnation would be slave songs.

                    rock-n-roll is a slang term for sex, I always thought.

                      No, "making soap" is the slang term for sex.

                      Easy mistake.

                        Prostitots suck a** from a straw. I despise that kid already.

                        Sorry, it p*sses me off so much when people say sh*t like this.

                          I like the music from the 90s and 80s the best. Alternative music from the 90s rock, and I love the rock anthems and girl band songs from the 80s. I hated the whole late 90s bubble-pop music, but besides that there's a lot of great music I remember from the 90s.

                          Today's music is kind of okay too, but I hate rap and R&B. I love bands like the Foo Fighters and Matchbox Twenty (from the 90s but still making good music). Fall Out Boy is okay too, but I only like a couple of their songs.

                                The 50s, 60s, and 70s had the best music. I consider the 40s to have a great style of music since that was the era of "Big Band Swing" and "Dixieland" type music, but I consider it too melodramatic for me to enjoy.

                                  Well The 70's had the singers and song writers like Jim Croce , James Taylor and Don McLean and lots of soul from Al Green , Teddy Pendgrass and Marvin Gaye as well as classic rock from The Eagles , Led Zepelin and Lynrd Skynrd. The 80's had The New Wave style , pop was perfected thanks in part to MTV and music videos in general. You had great love songs. The 90's had the birth of grunge. Yay. I mean grunge was good when it started and all that. But it gave birth to the whiny teen angst you see portrayed in todays so called rock bands like Panic At The Disco and Fall Out Boy. Emo bullshit. But over all thanks to the wide variety I would say it was the 80's. If were going on a strictly rock basis I would say the 70's. So there you have it. The 80's for pop. The 70's for rock and soul. As Meatloaf says 2 out of 3 aint bad but sorry 70's my heart lies in The 80's for its love songs , rock ballads and dance beats. Go 80's!!!

                                    I like both 80's and 90's music but the 80's is the best era of music of all time.

                                      The 60s, Late 70s, and 80s were the best in music IMO.

                                        1970's hands down. Back when Genesis didn't suck. Brian Eno. David Bowie. King Crimson. Disco.

                                          How did it fade after 1996? There was tons of great music in 1997-99 - in fact that was probably the best part of '90s music and best era of music of all time:

                                          There was Faith No More, Radiohead, Janet Jackson, Robbie Williams...I could make an actual list but that's already a good start.

                                          1st Nineties
                                          2nd Noughties
                                          3rd Tennies (so far)
                                          4th Eighties
                                          5th Sixties
                                          6th Seventies
                                          7th Fifties

                                          I don't really listen to any music before the second half of the 20th century
