It was a close thing between the 60s and 70s, but I went for the 60s. Most of my very favourite people and bands came about then, but theres good stuff from all decades, and a lot of rubbish as well.
people always fantasise about times gone by, when in reality alot of bands manged sucess because there were fewer bands around
that got attention.

I went for the 00's.

thats just my opinion though

Of course, a lot of the rubbish from earlier decades has been forgotten, thankfully.



Alas, you're wrong. :sadnod:

yeah...i counted led zep, pink flod and the doors as 60s because thats when they were formed (but nice choices!).
Thanks! Just realized that Lou Reed also made it big in the 70s - ah, the list is endless.

This is entirely subjective of course, but in my mind, post-rock is the definition of orgasm... and that hasn't really kicked off since this decade, so it has to be 2000s for me.

Funny how no one seems torn between the 60s or the 00s for example. Seems like if you really like one you dont like the other at the moment.

Which bands in particular? I've listened to Mogwai and Godspeed! and I have not been hooked yet. I listen to Mogwai once in a while, and it has it's moments, but Godspeed! is just to pretentious for me. Have I been listening to the wrong bands?

They're not amazing... one's I'd recommend are:
- Mew
- Maybeshewill
- And So I Watch You From Afar
- Sigur Rós (but they get boring after a while)
...amongst others.

getting high and writing great music, the 60s.

bands like the beatles, the doors, the velvet underground, the animals, lou reed, the rolling stones, eagles, led zepp, the beach boys, hendrix, pink floyd, bowie, the zombies, the kinks, the yardbirds, iggy pop and THE WHO! (probably more...)

by my taste, thats the best decade hands down...(cant stand most modern, mainstream stuff).

second choice would be 80s, then 70s.

you?
If you didnt just forget them. Mamas and the Papas, Moody Blues, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane are worth listening to. Its stretching it to say Led Zep are a 60s band. Ok they touch the far end of the 60s and the start of the 80s, but definatley a 70s band

I vote 90's. I really would like some of the 00's bands though: The Killers & Arctic Monkeys mainly.
