smh, you guys are fools. Saying the 80s and 2000s. There has been more great music made in the last 15 years than ever. All of you either don't appreciate music across all genres or haven't bothered to look hard enough for the good stuff.

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.
Do you honestly believe, that with the advent of synthesisers, anyone making music using acoustic instrumentation just said "fuck it, this is the 80s, we have to start using machines"? I bet you don't like Prince

Name some seminal albums from the 50s that aren't Jazz... If you happen to not like Jazz, Lounge, Bluegrass, Country or the beginnings of Rock, the 50s is a pretty lackluster period for music. I guess the 50s was the start of soul music to an extent, but i much prefer the soul from the 60s and 70s. I listen to some Jazz from the 50s but that's it. And i'd say i'm more likely to listen to jazz albums from the 60s.

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

But like that other dude said, there is plenty of good 2000's music out there if you look for it. I personally don't really listen to modern music at all. I'm a 60's/70's fan. But a lot of music I heard through the 2000's sounded pretty decent. I'm talking about proper bands here. Not the pop garbage they play on commercial radio.

But the main thing is that the 2000's did not have a general offensive sound or vibe like the 80's did. Though there was some great music in the 80's, the general sound of that era was horrible and has aged terribly. I would almost say it's inarguable that music from the 80's has aged worse than any other period of music. The only other period you could really argue has aged worse would be the 50's and maybe the early 60's.

It's most noticable when you actually listen to the discography of a band or artist who has been around since the 60's or 70's and through to the 2000's, and their 80's albums are the only unlistenable work they've put out. I've encountered a few bands/artists like that.

Also, it's not really relevant to the discussion, but the look of 80's music, like the presentation of musicians, was also absolutely horrible and unforgivable. Again I would say inarguably worse than any other period.
Who gives a shit about "the presentation of musicians"? Did you see what musicians were wearing in the 70s? The 80s was great.

I think 2011 was a great year for hip hop music, probably the best since, say 2004. So i think it looks good for this decade for hip hop at least, which is 98% of what i listen to.

I think a lot of the responses in the poll are based on the age group of the respondent. Generally, people who grew up on '90s music think the 2000s suck (usually based on their take on how hip hop changed). And generally, these ppl love '60s and '70s music because of how it inspired great later music.

Their take on the '80s is ambiguous because they have some nostalgia for this while also agreeing with the hatred for the '80s that came from the 60's and 70's musicians and audience.

Most ppl don't like the music that follows their teens and twenties since they are overwhelmed with their favorite music and don't have room to take in new shit. Also, any innovation that moves from their formative years' music is seen as somehow sacrilege.

The person who said that every decade has wack music is right, especially since the growing corporate control of music in the '50s but bubblegum goes back to the early 20th century at least.

I would've at least named some punk and alternative rock bands for the 80s and 90s if I was you.

80's

I hate a lot of 80's shit.........

seldomly do I hear 80's music, from ANY genre and say it's a good jam.

With exceptions to Michael Jackson, RUN DMC, Metallica, and a handful of others I can't think of right now, the rest is garbage.....

especially glam rock where dudes wore more eye-liner than porn stars,






^ dudes were supposed to be considered bad-ass dressing like this shit? Totally fucking ghey.......bunch of cross-dressing queers going to a rocky horror picture show convention

there we go.....*fixed*

The 2000's gave birth to:
Justin Bieber
Miley Cyrus
Lady Gaga
Tyler the over rated
B.o.b
Soulja Boy
Lil B
Lil Flip
Oj da juiceman
Avenged Sevenfold
Wacka Flocka
Gucci mane

Do we REALLY need to think of which decade was worst? Eminem started in the 90s, so 2000s can't claim him.

Except Tyler, Lil B, Waka Flocka Flame, and Gucci Mane are good.

Lady Gaga isn't that bad.
