    Pick your favorite.

    Personally, I'm partial to the rock flavor of the '70s. After all, these were the years that gave us:
    - Kansas
    - Survivor
    - Chicago
    - Led Zeppelin
    - Deep Purple
    - Lynyrd Skynrd
    - Eagles
    - Fleetwood Mac

    to name a few. What's your personal favorite decade for music?

    Music today stinks worse than a dead camel. Rap? Emo? Indie?

    BOO!

    This decade! Then again, I never really got into music at all until about 6th grade.

    What about Aerosmith?

    (I'll also throw Springsteen and Boston into the 70's mix.)

    every decade had its highs and lows

    for my taste, the best decades were the 70s and the 80s

    1976-1985 was the best period in music. It's proven by SCIENCE.

    Scratch that vote of mine.

    The 1920s - The rise of Mambo (which gave birth to Salsa, Merengue, Son, and Latin Jazz)**

    Rise of Samba - (too many spin off genres to list)

    Rise of Jazz - (*clears throat* .... all of American music, dare my musical theory teacher to even say country music too?)

    Rise of Mariachi - and all the other regional music form Mexico that everyone likes to lump together as Mexican music even thou it all sounds very different (except Corridos which only drug runners listen too - and banda which is only good for dancing anyway ;) )

    *Remember Cumbia is Colombian ..... yeah I know Mexicans "stole it" :king:

    Rise of Bachata and Boleros too.



    ** I know Merengue is not directly from Jazz-Salsa but, you have to admit that it sounded WAY Different before the introduction of Jazz - calling that old stuff Merengue is like calling the American College marching band Salsa.

    2000's, in particular the early years (the innovation seems to have almost grinded to a halt, and there are fewer interesting bands emerging in the last few years). Never before such depth and heaviness was reached though some bands came close in the late nineties.
    There's very little I like before 1980.
