As a certified "Old Fart" I was hard pressed to chose a "Best " decade.
I was in high school , then early Army in the sixties. So that is my most
reminiscient and formulative decade, and one of my favorites. I used to think the Beatles were the best band then....and now its definitely the Stones that had more Impact...which of course continued into the 90s.

Loved the 70s due to it being my early adult period and the 80s too.


But the best and most memorable Music I seem to favor is actually the 90s.
I have the largest amount of 90s songs.

The stuff 2000 to 2009 is Okay. And almost everything I hear from 2010 on is unremarkable at best, and mostly drivel.

Taste is too personal to call anyone elses picks out.

I definitely have a window there that's big for me. But another one from the early 90's to the early 00's.

Really it was the hair metal age I could never really get with, with a few exceptions.

This is so fitting from Quoydogs. A whole decade behind the Sex Pistols it is almost like he does this on purpose.

Sid Vicious died in 1979 just two years after another popular 80ís icon, Elvis Presley!

The Ramones are who you should be crediting for the punk scene....still 70's.

Operation Ivy was a massive shift in that scene, you can pretty much thank them for every popular punk band after 1987.

MJ, Prince and Madonna basically created modern pop music. Prince and MJ specifically. Doesn't matter when they started, it's when they did it.

I am not a big Punk guy but I would put Iggy and the Stooges in there at the start too. Sex pistols made punk popular.

I would argue that todays modern music is based on Disco, simple bass and drums with a focus on a beat to dance to. EDM really started from synth bands like Kraftwerk.

Plus in the early days of punk bands like Blondie, Talking Heads, Television, were considered punk to the general public, maybe it was the CBGS tie in. The leather and piercing crowd was mostly Stooges and Ramones and Sex Pistols though. I would bow to any guys like Hogan who know punk better than me.

90s by a shade over the 70s.

I dunno if music is like movies, but for the most part, movies were on one decade, off one decade, on, off: on 50s, 70s, 90s (for the most part).

Lots of truth in both statements ... it's too easy to label a style of music, then based on that label, people will automatically like or hate it, which is all wrong in so many ways.

Best example of what's real - the melding of styles - is guitarist/composer/producer extraordinaire Nile Rodgers. Before producing much of Madonna's work in the 80s, he wrote numerous disco hits including Let's Dance, Le Freak, We are Family, He's the Greatest Dancer, I'm Coming Out, and many others.

In 1981, Sugar Hill Gang released 'Rapper's Delight,' which is universally credited as the first rap hit. That song heavily sampled Good Times, a disco hit by the group Chic, which was written by Rodgers. He first thought to sue for the use of his composition, but after talking with the band, settled for a co-writer credit, and embraced rap as a style. He advised RunDMC and other acts to employ samples, and RunDMC's sample of Aerosmith's Walk This Way was the first big breakout for hip hop.

Rodgers went on to work with, compose for or produce LL Cool J, David Bowie (co-wrote Let's Dance and much of that album), Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk (wrote Get Lucky), Justin Timberlake, Shakira, Notorious BIG, Ariana Grande. No Labels ... No Boundaries.

Genres and labels aren't an issue. If someone writes off music because of how it gets classified, that's their loss.

For some people it's just about the music. For a great many it's the message, style or community it might represent. There's no right way to consume these things. Taste is 100% subjective...that's why people can have a favorite decade of music, but no era of music is actually "better" than another.

Even the current one which sounds like some dookie to me.

Actually there is scientific evidence that pop music is getting worse every year.
