There's not much happening lately. Everybody's still recycling the 60s and 70s. Jazz is even worse.

We're about 1/2 way through this decade, so I still hold out hope. So the only logical choice is the 90s. It sucked. You can kinda see where RnR went to shit if you follow music up to and then after the Nirvana crap.

70s were great

80s had hair/cheese metal

90s had an explosion of creativity

2000s - with some notable exceptions (Velvet Revolver, Audioslave, White Stripes, Default, Nickelback, Alter Bridge and a few others) is a total loss compared to the previous decades.

Rock matured in the 60s and peaked in the 70s.

There was some decent stuff in the 80s, but a LOT of bland (new wave) crap.

Through the 90s into today there has been a flood of garage bands (lot's of distortion covers up sloppy playing) with lyrics like

"Our parents messed up this world
Now we have to live in it
It's not fair - waaaaaah..."


and the ever popular

"I've lived a sheltered life
I don't know squat about the world
but I'm still qualified to comment on everything..."


and let's not forget the intellectually stimulating

"The ozone is gone,
poor people don't work to improve themselves,
I'm hooked on heroin,
and it's all Bush's fault..."


Lot's of crap out there these days.

My 15 year old really gets into 70s rock.

1990s.

The first few years of the '90s were still pretty darn good. The music from the '80s was refined to the point where the early '90s brought us some really good stuff. Then 1992 happened. Rock and Roll never really recovered.

Was it grunge, pop, or rap? I think it was all three combined with burn-out from the regulars from the '80s.

There hasn't been any decent rock music since the mid 70's.

But the crap that has come out in the past 7-8 years is by far the worst "music" I have ever had the displeasure to befouling my ears with.

OMG I'm sounding like my parents

Definitely 80's or now.

Now. It's hard to find contemporary rock and roll that doesn't involve rap these days. Linkin Park was OK until they had the stupid rap-style lyrics and vocals.

Cyndi Lauper?

A lot of 80s stuff was bland and very forgettable.

You guys voting 90's are forgetting Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Tool, Smashing Pumpkins, Bush, Green Day, Radiohead and a slew of others.

Those were the exceptions to the rule.

In the '90s, there were precious few notable rock bands in a sea of talentless performers.

The great thing about the 80s is you can stil name the one-hit wonders from that decade. Try doing that with the crap that came out in the 90s.

Nope, not forgetting them at all. In fact, a couple of those groups are the reason I voted for the 90s.
Link Posted: 2/13/2006 9:17:03 AM EDT
The labels and the teens they cater to appear to have totally abandoned true "Rock" in favor of Rap over the last decade. Most of what both groups call "rock" now isn't, and could at most be called pop. The only ones keeping Rock as a genre off life syupport are the artists who rose to the top of their game in the 60's-80's time period. When they go, I think the genre will be dead.

It's been going downhill since the '70s. I don't think I listen to anything newer than early '90s. The stuff today is pathetic, they either cry into the mic like a pussy, or scream into the mic like an idiot. Either way, it's not rock and roll

1988 to present. Some of the best music out there isn't even on a major label these days. Nor does it receive air-time on the major radio stations. This hold true for several genres including Rock-n-Roll.

If you saw the Superbowl Halftime Show this year, even the old rock-n-roll isn't the same. Some folks just don't have the common sense to hang up the spandex and microphone.

The 70's , 80's and 90's all produced some amazing bands/music.

Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, Boston, Rush, Metallica, Megadeth, Ozzy Osbourne, Slayer, The Cars, Huey Lewis and the News, Billy Joel, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Stone Temple Pilots, Collective Soul, Pantera, White Zombie...

What do we have today that could remotely compare to these bands? NOTHING!!!

1980s. Modern indie rock, post-punk, and industrial tend to be awesome, and pre-80s is usually pretty good (especially Pink Floyd).

But 1980s pre-punk and synthpop were just terrible.

By far, hands down the 80's were the WORST. Sure, some good bands did emerge, but not many. A very ugly, talentless decade, in general.

Exhibit "A":


If you need an Exhibit "B", you need to shave your fuckin' mullet and regroup.

Everything in your post can be dated to 1992, not post Y2K.

The Grunge music in the 90's killed good rock and roll music, and for the most part, it's
still dead. I think that is why hip hop and rap exploded in the 90's, because rock music
was depressing and boring.

Bring back the hair bands of the 80's or the classic rock of the 70's. At least those bands actually knew how to play their instruments, and many of the guitar players back in those days
were virtuosos.

Two of the biggest bands touring right now are The Rolling Stones and Motley Crue.
How many bands from the 90's are selling out stadiums and large venues night
after night these days?

Most of the 90's and into the present absolutely suck out loud.

I have yet to see anyone list a band that went public in that time period that didnt just absolutely generate a major suck factor.

The "bands" today are hilariously untalented hacks, could not write a song or its attedant lyrics to save their lives. You could put ANY three major label bands out there right now, play their music back to back, having never heard them play... and I defy you to tell them apart either stylistically, lyrically... down to the friggen chords the guitar player uses.



They all well and truly suck.

And sound the same.

Corporate rock...produced to mediocrity...music for the masses... all hail formula music.


Bland tasteless drivel formed by focus groups... devoid of creativity.

And the absolute worst is the OVERPRODUCTION of the music.

Dram out

It used to be that "musicians" made their own music. Now all we've got are performers.
