The 70's had disco music, which was way underrated. The 80's was classic, which had nu wave, one of the best genres of all time. And many gems that have gotten played on the radio over the years. The 90's was definitely the best overall, in terms of hip hop and alternative music. Yo MTV Raps. 120 Minutes. I didn't even like heavy metal, but you would still watch Headbanger's ball. The 00's is easily the worst, unless you're a teenage girl, deformed, or a fat person.
