I like all kinds of music from the 80s and alternative music from the late 90s.
I know there's not a whole lot of Hip Hop heads here, but I'd have to say the 90's. Wu Tang, Nas, Mobb Deep, Outkast, Big L, Black Moon, Group Home, Gang Starr, Tribe Called Quest, The Roots...Not to mention Common while he still had Sense. Way too many to name, some of the best material of the rap genre came out in the 90's.
I said the 80's originally but I have taken note of the music I've listened to more lately and it's been 60's and 70's R&B like Sam Cook and Percy Sledge.
I think I pretty much listen from a variety of decades. It's tough to pick only one.
I posed this question not only because of my interest in music, but also as a demographic study. There was a similar facebook survey with thousands of results and the 80s won going away.
Ok, now you're just starting to sound like a Broken Record..
I like the 90s myself
I'm the only ancient fan...sheesh.
Au contraire, I would neva neva neva neva neva neva neva neva neva neva neva neva neva ::skip:: eva do that.
late 90s was good. Espicially for hiphop. It was a coming of age...
Gotta love these topics. The "current" is always forgetful and bland. No one ever picks the current. Just as in the 70s people were saying disco was pure pop crap compared to old meaningful soulful music...
Today is never as great as we'll remember it 20 years from now. Just the way it works. All that's old is great! All that's new is crap! We're robots all buying in to this.
I pick the 1930's - 1940s. But since that's not an option it's a toss up between the 80's and 90s.
30's and 40's by a blowout to me though: Miles Davis, Coltrane, Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, Nat King Cole, Andrews Sisters, Perry Como, Ella Fitz, Billie Holliday and on and on.
Big Band, Jazz, the birth of Rock, etc.
