    I use to be a fan, back in the 1996 'till 2006 or so. People's opinions change. I do still like RZA's production.

    For me it's the 80's because it's simply boring. All those crappy outdated programmed drums and synths and boring arrangements, plus in order to make songs more futuristic and modern, producers lost all the organic touch that earlier music had.(plus the abolition of vinyl and introduction of digital technology)

    Best music for me was in the 70's because it had all the old flavor from earlier decades(jazz, soul, funk) combined with inovations(progressive rock, jazz fusion, electronic) that were exploited much more in later decades.

    90's is all about Hip Hop and Rage against the machine. And prodigy.

    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.

    a bit of a reactionary statement. to be honest i thought the same thing when i was a militant asshole teenager, but realistically musicians all steal from each other. elvis (and his collaborators) were actually quite inventive, taking country music and putting the harder edge of black rock n roll music with it.

    theres conflicting information on whether or not he was a racist, but logically he'd have to respect the musicians that paved the way for his career. then again maybe he was a massive racist.

    the 80s had probably more bad songs than any other genre, and it also felt like everyone followed the trend of using synths and fake drums in their records, as soon as the 80s were over a bunch of soul and rock artists went back to their old methods.

    i definitely agree with check about new wave, because i think it was a catch all for the best of the 70s, shame it didn't last longer.

    How many of you who voted the 00's can honestly say you like more music from the 50s or 80s than the 00s? What the fuck were you listening to the last decade?? You can say what you want about the overall quality about mainstream music lately, but no other decade comes close to the diversity we're seeing nowadays. If you can't find new quality music, regardless of what genre your looking for, it's your own damn fault. The same couldn't be said 60 years ago.


    OT: Voted for the 50s because I have no clue if there's anything at all from the decade that I would sit and listen to today. But when reconsidering, I should've gone for the 70s or 80s.. The 60s, 90s and 00s are far better than the other decades in the poll, imho.

    90% of the best hip hop beats are sampled from 70's music. So much awesome music was made in the 70's. So much creativity. Progressive Rock. Drug induced themed albums. There's a certain quality to the sound of the 70's. Hip hop was build on that sound from the 70's and the most memorable drum breaks still used in todays music come from late 60's/ 70's music. The 70's is where and when hip hop started.
    Seriously, think about it.

    I still want to punch the faggit who voted 70's. You are a homo. You don't deserve to breathe. Nigger.

    Blaxploitation mother fucker. Funkadelics, queer. Without the 70's there would be no hip hop. There would be no Wu Tang. How the fuck can you even discard the 70's?

    All those funky ass library joints are from the 70's. That ill ass drums sounds on the best hip hop beats are still breaks from the 70's. How can you hate on that?

    all that ill ass soundtracks used on hip hop beats, 70's. All those memorable guitar riffs, 70's. Motherfucking Pink Floyd, 70's.

    Yes, I'm mad. I hate you nigger.

    even if i enjoy more music from the 90s, i would vote 70's for the best decade of music on general principle. i think this should just be universally understood.

    was bumping 'dark side of the moon' earlier, crazy stuff. funny how it sounds more like jazz or soul than rock music.

    60s were great also, all that motown, stax, beatles etc

    80's for sure, I occasionally enjoy some phil collins, but I still realise that objectively it's shitty pop music.


    I'm assuming the people voting for the 50's are doing so because they aren't familiar with the music?

    The 80's had some hilariously great anthem like tunes.
