Confirm/deny. All the best songs and now classics were all created in the 60's, 70's, and 80's. While I also like a lot of 90's and early 2000's tracks, they're not as many as those 3.

Much better than the music the young kids of today listen to. Discuss.

Your poor deluded fool. Lady Gaga didn't come into play until the late 2000's!!!

I actually agree here however while the 1960s are the best decade, the 1980s come in 2nd.

As far as billboard stuff goes, I'll bite. But there is so much good independent talent out there even now, in every genre, whether or not they get much mainstream exposure.

Every generation has good music, you just hear the top 40 while praising the top 40 you heard as a kid. You sound like one of those dadrock kids on youtube that think they're special for listening to Queen or AC-DC

Saw the thread title and knew this was either a cubed or JakeSully original.

You never turned on a radio in 1960, so you weren't exposed to all the awful music they had back then. You just listen to the 'best-of' stuff from those years that has been remembered.

Haha yeah

How do you even know this, Cubed? I thought you didn't listen to music.

I'm not a big fan of music, but I think the 80s, 90s and 00s were the best decades, though there are still some good bands/artists out there like Bressie and Kaiser Chiefs. Most 70s music doesn't appeal to me for some reason. There is good and bad music in every decade.

One good thing nowadays is that you can listen to albums on services such as iTunes and YouTube to find out if you really like an artist without having to buy them first. It's easier to narrow down your suggestions and discover new music that way rather than listening to radio stations that play the same songs over and over again.

Honestly, there is brilliant music in every decade. It just gets harder and harder to find it now.

My music collection goes all the way from the 1930s, to something that was released a few months ago.

You talking only pop music or all genres or just out yer ass, here?

You never turned on a radio in 1960, so you weren't exposed to all the awful music they had back then. You just listen to the 'best-of' stuff from those years that has been remembered.

Agreed on both points. My father breathed music (played in a lot of cover bands for most of his life) and grew up in the '50s. Being raised by him, I heard pretty much everything the decades had to offer. Each era had its gems and its garbage, just like now. Even lauded bands and musicians had some crap crammed in their albums that wouldn't be considered good.

I agree with CyberCubed

I, too, like to live dangerously.

What's from the 1930's you listen too, jazz probably?
