Probably 90's but that was the decade I was most influenced by music so I'm probably being bias.
Whoever said 60's-70's had the most meaning and purpose was spot on. Then people started getting into music just for the money (for the most part)
80's was good for the time, but a lot of it now is just laughed at. 90's was the perfect mix of rap and rock music (which now are both dead IMO)
So yeah, the 90's was the last line of defense for listenable music. I have a bad feeling it's going to be one hit wonders from now until the end of eternity. Although I am partial to that new "Radioactive" song. But again, it will pass and I'll once again go back to listening to music from the past...
Best was the 90s. Better than Ezra, Pearl jam, Sister Hazel, Goo Goo Dolls, DMB, etc.
Worst is easily today. I'm not sure I could name a single radio station where I live, because it's all terrible.
OP says your opinion. I understand that some of the bands I picked aren't necessarily the best musicians (and I wouldn't try to argue they are), but it's the music I enjoy the most.
Agree other than Better Than Ezra. They're garbage.
Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
BTE is the one band I've been trying hard to see again, but they don't seem to like the SE anymore. I never thought BTE was that different from the rest of the stuff I listen to, but I've found people either like them or the rest of the stuff I listen to and rarely both.
My era too. Give me 65-79.
Who played "I smell sex and....oh mama this surely is a dream"
If that helps anybody
Mid late 90's timeframe...
Yes! Thank you!
+1 when I get some more sir
I kept thinking Buckcherry...
A fraternity brother of mine who's from NOLA's family rented out Tipitina's one night the weekend before the Bama/LSU BCSNCG. BTE played during the party, & they were fuggin terrible. We stayed bc it was full open bar but even staying for that was a struggle bc the band was so bad.
Ha no they sing that god-forsaken Crazy Bitch song.
Well they are a little past their prime, plus their drummer moved on a couple years before that. Sister Hazel is one of my favorite bands also, but I don't know why I even go to their concerts anymore. I'm pretty sure they've played the same scripted show for the last 5 years. You know its bad when everything you say between songs is word for word the same every concert.
Take pearl jam out and this is the best of hopeless romantic 90's playlist for guys who hang out with girls who are just thier friends.
Rock of the 60's 70's and 90's is the best. However - rock music is dead.
Guys calling Rap music is lulz - it's just poetry overtop stolen or computer generated music. When a rapper pics up an instrument and actually creates music ...then you can call it music.
I'd love to hear what you think about the crap music that is produced today.
90s groups I love(d)
3eb (first cd)
Everclear (Sparkle & Fade)
All Smashing Pumpkins cds (fave band)
Tool (a little self righteous at first but they grew up)
Metallica (Load and back)
Superdrag (Who sucked out the feeeLiiin'?)
KoRn (not proud of this, but I still like their old stuff
Its no difference than a lead singer. Producers which really make the money def use instruments.
Sarah sorry about the Herpes.
'40-'70 got better, '70-'90 got worse, '90-'95 got better, '95-'10 got worse, getting better now

Technically, however, you're incorrect.
No love for hair metal and thrash?
After about 1995 or so the music industry could have shut down and the world would be better for it
It's hard for me to pick just one decade. Even though I'm a young guy I'm a big fan of old contry music due to my dad so I'd say the decades that included George Jones, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Jamey Johson etc. we're as good as it gets. 70s and 80s because of rock. Van Halen, Lynyrd Skynrd, Aerosmith etc. as well.
"Give him six" "We don't give a damn about the whole state of Alabama" "Grit N Grind"
Easily the 80's.. As far as best would say late 60's to mid/late 70's followed closely by early 90's rock and hip hop.
Gotta be the 60s just from the standpoint that it was the best time for 2 of my favorite genres classic rock and soul/rnb. 90s also win for the real hip hop and nirvana/pearl jam alternative movement. Anybody who says 2000s or 80s should be castrated.
From 1968 to 1977 was the greatest, is still the greatest and always will be the greatest. Hundreds of songs from this time period will live on forever.
My personal favorite of all time, Lynyrd Skynyrd was and still are the best ever.If not for a plane running out of fuel over Mississippi on Oct.20,1977,"rest in peace Ronnie and Steve" there is no telling how many great songs they would have made together.
How many songs from the 80's, 90's, 00's and today do you think will still be playing on the radio 30 years from now? My guess is not many.
How many from 68 through 77 do most of us still love to hear?
Most of the greatest rock bands in history were together during this time and recorded songs that will live forever.
Lynyrd Skynyrd free bird, simple man, Tuesday's gone, sweet home Alabama and many more.
Bad Company bad company, can't get enough, feel like makin love
CCR I heard it through the grapevine, born on the bayou, who'll stop the rain, have you ever seen the rain
The Eagles hotel California, take it easy
Aerosmith walk this way, dream on, sweet emotion
The Steve Miller Band fly like an eagle, the joker
Pink Floyd another brick in the wall, comfortably numb
The Allman Brothers midnight rider "hear it on the geico commercial everyday" ramblin man
Bob Seger turn the page, night moves
Bob Dylan knockin' on heaven's door
Led Zeppelin stairway to heaven
Carly Simon your so vain
This is just a few. There were hundreds of great bands during this time.
Boston, Van Halen, Deep Purple, Neil Young, The Doors, Santana, Eric Clapton, The Guess Who, Commodores, AC/DC
Doobie Brothers, Kiss, Jimmy Buffet
I could go on and on but this is getting to long to read.
