I'd probably say the 80s was rock's best decade, because that was the hair metal period, and there were some other great none hair metal bands (Billy Idol, Metallica, Violent Femmes). The 70s were a great decade, but my vote goes for the 80s.

90s = uprising of progressive metal. 90s win.

90s. But only the early 90s. It started going downhill somewhere around 1996.

Gotta go with the Blues Rock of the '60's and '70's, as much as I love Prog and Punk and all that jazz (but seriously, jazz), Blues is where it's at.

90's. It had Britpop (Supergrass, Blur, Pulp etc.) and it had Grunge.

Oh, definately the 80's with the rise of Metallica, Iron Maiden and other bands like the Sex Pistols (though I don't think they're that great now, like I used to) and The Clash (who are awesome).

Though I am with Yatesy a bit too - Nirvana, Supergrass, you name it.

I don't think you can really vote for a best because each decade gave us a lot of good and a lot of bad, except for the 00's, which gave us mostly bad.

60's- the Beatles, the Doors, the Velvet Underground, among lots of others.
70's- Led Zeppelin, the Ramones, Talking Heads, Pink Floyd, the Buzzcocks, and more.
80's- the Descendents, R.E.M., Husker Du, the Pixies, Pink Floyd's The Wall, Black Flag, and the Dead Kennedys, aslo early Bad Religion.
90's- Green Day, the Offspring, NOFX, Bad Religion again, R.E.M's Automatic For the People, and Pearl Jam.

The Sex Pistols were in the 70's (1976-1978), And I think that the 80's was the worst decade for music (but underground music), the best were the 70s and the 90s, and nowadays... music sucks, but underground music (like the 80s)...

True.

00's has some good stuff, but it's all so produced it's hard to tell if it's brilliant or a brilliant marketing scheme.

80's were insane for punk rock

Wow I didn't expect so many 90's votes. Sometimes I forget that this is the Offspring message board (Yeah, I know, stupid me).

What? Bad Religion started in the 80s? I had no idea they were that old.

They actually formed in 1980, and released their first CD in '82.

They started like the exact same time as Agent Orange, just had a later release.

Wow. I opened this thread and clicked "70's" without a moment of hesitation and was shocked to see the overall results.

The only other really viable option would be "80's" and all the good stuff was in the early 80's which I consider to just be leftover from the late 70's.

50's the decade rock began, obviously would be the best just looking at it objectivly. If it hadn't began how could you compare it or even think of it? So deff 50's because thats the decade rock began, so its the best for rock.

Jakebert

One thing I've noticed is that the 90's seemed to have more no-name generic radio rock bands than almost any other genre, it even gives the 80's a run for it's money. Which is funny, because most people prais rock music from the 90's.

I don't know. You grow up with it, you like it. That's the way it is with me at least.

Jakebert
12-03-2005, 08:55 PM
That's true for most people. I never rally grew up with a lot of music though. I didn't start listening to music on a regular basis until I was like 10.

Music has always been a big part of my life. I've been playin drums since I was 4. I 've never known life without music I guess.

Jakebert

Music has become like that to me since I started listening to it, but when I was younger, my parents weren't real big music people, so I didn't really get to hear it until I took it upon myself to listen to the radio and stuff.

80s sucked...90s and 60s are the best...up to 2001 but 9/11 fucked music up :( ...I like the late 60s

I think all of them were great but the the 2000's had to be the best. Most rock music that comes out today is good or okay.

No there's been no good bands this decade. The 90's was definitely the best, closely followed by the 80's

Yeah, the Pixies, Black Flag, Operation Ivy, Minor Threat, the Descendents, Danzig, Sonic Youth, Bad Brains, Circle Jerks, and Reagan Youth were all horrible, horrible bands.

Late 70s, all 80s, early 90s.

How can you honestly believe that? With all of the Nickelback and 3 Doors Down crap that's out now, along with the horrible nu metal and faux punk? And the underground scene isn't even good either.

I agree. Some older bands have had good releases this decade, but most new stuff is basically crap.

I like how a lot of the older bands started getting back to their roots in the early-to-mid 00s, but other then that, this decade is crap.

12-09-2005, 05:40 PM
I tend not to count that whole lot though, I just count "new" bands.

Nice avatar, by the way. I love Joe and Monkey.

Either way, I still think 2000+ is still better than the late 90s.

Oh, and thanks. It's wierd, because of the JaM avatar, I don't recognize my own posts.

Jakebert

The late 90's and early 00's kind of run together to me. The level of music was kind of the same for both. Nothing really changed with the decades, unlike it usually does.
