There's great stuff to be had in every decade, and even today good music is still being produced, if anything probably at a higher rate just because there's more MUSIC being made. There will always be good and not so good music, and generally the more of it being made means more good, of course along with more bad.

But I would have to vote for the 70's in this case. This was the decade that birthed the music we have today. I don't think we've come very far since then. But then again, it's not every decade that is preceded by one of musical rebellion and freedom that was the 60s, leading into the 70s with the seeds planted a decade before having matured nicely.

The 90's were great imo, for metal, and therefore for guitar.

Opeth, Entombed, Ulver, lots of other black, death/melodic blabla metal came there, far from just numetal.

I voted 00's. There are really great bands out now. Unfortunately, music has gone backwards in terms of labels and people really judge by genre these days. And I'll admit, nothing great hits ya in the face these days, you have to find it.

Another reason I voted 00's is because everyone and their dog is recording their music today, and that's awesome.

I voted 80s

But it was close with 70s and 80s. I love the first half of the 90s but absolutely detest from 95 onwards so it's weird lol. But I love music mainly from 50s through to 1995. smile.gif


At the beginning of 1990 (around new years day) MTV played the "best 200 videos of the decade". The interesting thing is that they actually had some artistic standards up to that time, it was not so totally money driven. I noticed how quickly after that they went on a downslide after that, played whatever paid the most into the coffers, no matter how mindless it was.

I think it is like that throughout the mass media entertainment industry, including what they call "the news". I quit watching/listening/reading that 4 years ago when I killed my tv, and really, have not missed a thing. It is pretty much entirely money driven now, there are no standards. Actually cartoons may be the highest level of art out there anymore. Mass media used to be maybe 75% or 80% money driven, but you got some quality out of that loose 25%. Now it is 99% money driven. 100%. And really, there is not a huge market for quality.

edit: grammar.

Agreed, 60s were great, but I think it was the 70s when most of those bands hit their stride smile.gif

About the 90s, it just goes back to what I said about more overall music equalling more good and yet also more bad. There was plenty of great guitar music in the 90s! What about soundgarden, the pumpkins, radiohead, a whole generation of alternative rock guitar gods.
