1990's music made the biggest impact perhaps in my life but 80's music is cool. Uplifting and a decade when people were optimistic. Was too young to experience 80's properly but would love to go there and visit if a time machine existed... :-)
The 90's without doubt. My favourite bands were around in that decade, so to see them develop and how people were listening to their music and talking about them would have been great to see. Bands like Oasis, Blur, Pulp, R.E.M. and The Verve. And to see the Blur vs Oasis rivalry would have been an added bonus!
The 60 and 70's has so many influential artists who helped change the music industry (in my opinion).
The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, The Doors, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd and AC/DC.
80s I only really listen to Iron Maiden and some Metallica (that transcended into the 90s).
90s I only listen to Nirvana occasionally.
00s was the music I was 'forced' to listen to when I was little, though I never remember half of the bands or singers I listened too.
10s...don't get me started!
The 90s definitely, there was so much going on in every genre, the last really healthy period of the music industry before downloads and that kicked in. The dance music was really good especially early 90s stuff, great indie movements like Britpop and I have fond memories of the pop music because it was the first music I ever loved!
My God, what a question! I mean, the 50s was the Elvis era, the 60s was the Beatles and free love, but the 70s and 80s was punk rock and the 90s was grunge and Britpop! I wish I could be a young person in all of those eras.

90s without a doubt. I could list every great band and album from the 90s but there are just too many to name. I only wish I were born 10 years earlier so I could grow up with it.
Hard separating 60's, 70's & 80's, 60's and 70's were brilliant (The Beatles, The Doors, The Kinks, The Yardbirds, The Who, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Alice Cooper, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith), but then the 80's had punk at it's finest - The Clash, Stiff Little Fingers, The Exploited, Dead Kennedys, Black Flag.
I can say without a doubt that after the 80's, it got worse as it went on.
