Which is your favourite decade in popular music? I'ld go for the 1960's, but the 1950's were great to. And the 1970's and 1980's. When we come some years into the 1990's, it's harder to find good stuff (I hate hip hop and techno) so then I would go for some country/ballads (songs like "From a Distance"/"What if Gof was one of us"), dansband songs or other pop/rock.

Early-mid 90's. The alt rock scene at the time had a lot going for it. Lots of different styles and sounds so I always pick that as my favorite era. Lot's of good stuff out of the 60's though, so it's a tough one. I just identified more with music of the 90's I guess.

Hip-hop wise, late 80's to early 90's.

Rock wise, early 90's.

2000's for the techno.

The 80s were a golden age for air head pop music and FM synth was at its apex. I find the majority of my favorite songs come from that decade.

GnR and Metallica were also HUGE in the early 90s. It wasn't all grunge.

Yes, but I associate them more with the 1980s (like most hard rock and heavy metal at that time).

That's true of course but especially Metallica were at the peak of their success in the early nineties. Don't quote me on this but I'm pretty sure that the black album was the best selling rock album of the nineties.

Anything before the 80's... namely the 30's - 60's... Also love all things Beethoven and Mozart. Im SLOWLY getting into the 80's but most modern music, especially American, sucks. All my fave modern groups are out of Ireland, Germany, Netherlands, and Scandanavia (Norway mostly)

GNR was also at the top of their popularity from 91-94ish after the release of the Use your Illusion albums and the 2 and a half year long tour they did. There was also countless other rock acts out at the time that weren't grunge.

Anything with a awesome guitar riff, basically.

I'm not really a big fan of 'pop music'. But if I were alive during the 60s I imagine that would've been pretty cool.

I don't know, but it could also have been "Nevermind" by Nirvana.

I'm postive Barkwork was right. It was The black album. I think Pearl Jam's 10 even out sold Nirvana's Nevermind.

As credible as it can get, Wikipedia says the honour of the best selling rock album of the 1990s would belong to Alanis Morissette's 'Jagged Little Pill' (33 millions), then 'Nevermind' (26) and then Metallica.

Then again, those are the best selling albums of the 1990s, not exactly in the 1990s. But I don't think anyone listens to Alanis anymore.

90's for sure. Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Foo fighters, Green Day, Snoop Dog, Bush, Cranberries, Cyprus Hill, Biggie, Tupac, NIN. I also like the 80's especially the Cure. But considering that I was actually aware of my surroundings in the 90's it might have something to do with it.

Another thing we have forgotten is how it's not a very long time ago we actually bought albums and singles. I still buy albums, but many don't.

For me, probably the 80's because I grew up in that era. But I love a lot of music that came out of the 70's and 90's as well..

Which kind of 1980's music? Hard rock/heavy metal or ordinary pop.

80's off the top of my head. For me it was a great decade that seen alot of awesome bands invent themself. Sepultura -Beneath The Remains- , GNR -Appitite For Destruction- , Metallica -Kill Em All, Master Of Puppets- , Slayer -Reign In Blood-

I still really like 60's , 70's and some 90's. Main band from the 90's been Disturbed unless thats incorrect, maybe they have been around longer then I think... then there's the formation of Nailbomb.

I think some ballads of the 1980's are good.
