60s. Definitely the 60s.

Favorite: 80’s
Second favorite: 60’s

(I think we generally love best the era in which we came of age.)

PupnTaco's avatar

I think it’s hard to top the sheer volume and lasting quality of that period between 1967 – 1972. Nothing else comes close for me.

forestGeek's avatar

70’s Rock (including late 70’s Punk)

I’ve said this before The decade between 1987 and 1997.

Gotta say, I loves me some Pendulum and Muse.

Bluefreedom's avatar

It’s definitely going to be the 1970’s for me.

Sorry, I needed to form a complete sentence for my answer.

SoapChef's avatar

1970’s, okay I am going to break the rules.
Gotta agree with Pup&Taco.

augustlan's avatar

Just because I can hear all the music from today, and prior to today.

In case you haven’t noticed, we don’t do very well with one-word answers!

90s_kid's avatar

whoa that was quick….so far the polls are totally mixed up but whoever said 90s YEA!!!!!!!!! i do like the 80s and 70s tho too

mrdh's avatar


and then the 2000s

MacBean's avatar

Probably the 50s.

80s were most fun

mangeons's avatar

The 80’s, definitely. They had great dance music, and just all around fun to listen to.

Elton John is pretty cool, along with other artists such as the Mamas and the Papas and Michael Jackson who are not from this era.

mangeons's avatar

But now is great too, we have a whole different type of music, and many eras of music prior. We have alternative, punk, hard rock. But the 80’s are the best, definitely.

@augustlan: No, we don’t. We have to explain ourselves :)

SoapChef's avatar

I apologize for this, but the eighties was a giant gaping black hole of musical excellence. Okay ya’ll can jump on me now. But it’s true.

PupnTaco's avatar

I didn’t want to say it, glad you did.

augustlan's avatar

80s may not have been the best talent-wise, but it was my era…and I still love some of it. The Cars!

SoapChef's avatar

@Augustian Okay, I will give you the Cars and just say “Flock of Seagulls.” :0)

PupnTaco's avatar

I feel the same way about ‘75 -‘80—it was mostly cheese-awful-waffle-ocity, but it was my cheese!

mrdh's avatar

I liked ‘75—‘80—The Clash, Bowie’s Berlin Trilogy, Joy Division etc…

mrdh's avatar

Iggy Pop… Talking Heads…

PupnTaco's avatar

Yeah, Talking Heads (“I’ll put down what I’m doing, my friends are important”), Elvis Costello (“I don’t wanna see you ‘cause I don’t miss you that much”), plus tons of guilty pleasures: ELO, Gerry Rafferty, Bee Gees

SoapChef's avatar

Yikes! Okay, Peter Frampton, Steve Miller Band and Heart.
I love that word, “cheese-awful-waffle-ocity”

augustlan's avatar

My first big concert was the Bee Gees! I was 11.

SoapChef's avatar

Okay Augustian, I see your Bee Gees and raise you a Donna Summer!

augustlan's avatar

Ok, you win : )

90s_kid's avatar

mrdh's avatar


binary's avatar


I would say this is true too, for the majority of casual music listeners.

Beans4life's avatar

im gonna have to say 70’s-80’s rock

Amish_Ninja's avatar

40’s, gotta love Sinatra!

asmonet's avatar

It depends on what genre we’re talking about.
Pop – 40s, 50s, 90s.
Rock – 67–77. Just like Sueanne.

But if I had to choose one decade. The 60s.
