I know I answered 80's cause everything has been done up to that point and nothing new has been done since. Not to say there isnt some of the best bands ever out there today. They're just not doing anything that's been done before. Trust me, in 30 years from now no one's gonna say "remember Arctic Monkeys?" We will always remember Led Zeppelin, Beatles, the Who, and so on.

I agree that there is loads of good music today, but if I had to choose I'd say the 60s.

Edit; and why are the 60s and 70s lumped together?

Totally agree with you there.

I chose "Today" because of all the innovative stuff in every genre. Young artists are constantly trying to impress and interpret the older generations of musicians. Sure there were awesome musicians in older decades, however, change in music is what makes it so beautiful. There is also a lot of crap today, but if you can weed out the bad music, there is so much good music being made and regenerated, the past decades don't even come close. Even the "old" guys are making new music.

You hit the nail on the head.

Well what the F#$k is wrong with today's music??!! I mean seriously, I understand that some of you don't like it but what is it with the "Who the hell voted for today?" question??!!

I VOTED FOR TODAY!

No offense (and I really didn't want it to be like this) but if you can't see today's good music (I'm not saying you have to like it) then something is wrong with you or you're just trying to sound interesting.

Do you think the '70s or any other decade you might have voted for only had good music? Of course not. There was terrible music back then, too, but it's forgotten now for apparent reasons. The same will probably happen with today's "bad music".
I mean, can't you see it? Never heard of Radiohead, Muse, Symphony X, Dream Theater, Sigur Ros, Arcit Monkeys and loads of other splendid Extreme Metal, Indie Rock, Alternative Rock, etc. bands? I can't come up with more names right now and I've never even listened to Symphony X and some other good bands but I know they're good. And it's not just Rock and Metal, that was just a few examples. There many good artists of other genres, too, even pop artists, pop doesn't always have to be **e, you know. And film music, how about that?

If you want to get to today's good music you have to search for it. I know I do and I find it. Good music from the past on the other hand has been served to us so we don't have to dig deep to get it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying today's music definitely the best, that's just my taste but I think that saying it's all worthless (it still counts as saying that even if you use other words) is a very ignorant thing to do, and like I said before, I didn't want to say this to some, especially LedZeppRox13 cause I respect her but I have to.

Sorry for the essay.

hate to be a bummer but, Symphony X and Dream Theatre are from the 90s. Just because they are still coming out with new material doesn't mean they are a new band.

I do have to say and it might have been said already..todays music has a leg up on past decades. Technology has made the recording quality and process to new heights, musicians are now limitless to the sounds and music they can create inside the studio and for the most part on stage as well..But for this...we have crappy singers using auto-tune...

For what past decades lacked in technological aids they made up with soul and impeccable musicianship...Soo while lady gaga and the rest of the goat rodeo called the music industry stay in the mainstream the next great singer or musician watching and listening will learn instead of becoming the best musician they can be they can always dress up as a *** and make it

@DarkRiff: No, that's alright. Even if they're from the '90s, the music they do today is TODAY'S MUSIC and that's what all this fuss is about. Besides, I was just trying ti make a point with that, not saying that it's (only) those bands that made me choose TODAY.
I do understand your point, however.

90s, hands down, and I don't think it is close. We are talking about music and not exclusively rock. You had:

Rock: Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, Screaming Trees
Metal: Pantera, Metallica, Megadeth, Sepultura, Dream Theater
Country: Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, George Strait
Rap: Ice Cube, Dre, Wu Tang, Nas, Snoop Dog, Mos Def, and Eminem near the end of the decade

Many people give credit to Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles and Black Sabbath for "changing music" or shaping today's genres. Personally, I give them credit for being the first to do exactly what they did. For everyone, there is a first. As far as change the way music was viewed... Well, I'd say that is a lie. I believe Elvis was a bit before their time.

Carlsnow says:
Was Mozart a genius (for HIS time)? SURE, but like most of his eers most of his work was commissioned by Duke so and so or King whats his name…Does that make his music better? No. Does it seem silly to wear a tuxedo to what is really a performance(usually inaccurate) of ‘the pop music of the day’ silly ? YES.

Makes ya wonder…. “in 80 years will folks dress in tuxedos to hear a rendition of Stairway To Heaven?”


I think Carl said more than he thought he said here.


Basically, everything is relative. Every decade of music had its bands and musicians who influenced so many of today's people. I believe that in 100 hundred years, The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix will be virtually obsolete. You will read about them in music history books that will be sold at hippy markets in small dusty towns.

I do not think that time has any relation to how a great a musician or band is or was. Only people do. You think, wow Metallica has been together for a long time. That doesn't make their music any better or any worse. They, the band, make their music better or worse or more or less popular as it were.

That being said, I believe that today there are many more people who listen, enjoy and contribute to music than there ever was. You might argue that technology allows that. If music was so important in the '50's, '60's, '70's or '80's the technology would have been there. When people want something bad enough, they will go out of their way to get it. And people want money.

One last point.
Unknown Person says:
I think that music affects society by the type of music people listen to which tells them wich emotion that they will be feeling. Now in days the music we listen to is more about violence and aggresive action. So I think that we should pay attention more to the types of music that contributes to the types of emotion people are thinking about.


Today, everybody and there mom has something to b**** and moan about. I believe there was a time when people accepted that life sucks and learned to live with it. Music is expression, the more emotion, the more music. Everybody has sappy feelings about this, that or the other thing. There are probably a thousand rock bands every year that attempt to get their music heard and even more rap and hip hop artists; TODAY more than ever.

If enough particles are in movement, sooner or later, some will collide and make something truly beautiful.

*Sorry to be so off topic.

Rock on!

I wonder why,when arguing over todays music,everyone thinks of the pop they hear on the radio,the mainstream worlwide plague like the jonas brothers or artists like those

i wonder why no one takes in consideration other genres aside from Rock/Metal/Pop,there are tons of new artists out there,really good ones! and,this new music is full of electronic acts too! wich are by far way more musical,and know way a lot more than most mainstream acts from today or the past,dont let anything pass by! good music is still around,you just got to search for it

I can argue the 1900s changed music forever, as did the 1930s, as did the 1950s ... That argument doesn't really hold any weight whatsoever imo, as music is always ever changing.

Completely disagree. Technology can only be improving at such a rate.

I find it hard to vote on this one. Every decade seems to produce both good and bad music. The thing I've noticed most is that (generaly speaking)music enjoyed by the masses (not neccesarily 'good music') soon atracts the attention of the likes of Simon Cowell et al who kill it in their persuit of profit. Inovative music struggles to survive in this kind of environment 'cause it's usually created by clever people who'll take a bigger cut in the profit margin, so they are largely ignored.

This is because most people do not listen to that genre of music. I myself need to branch out more and have been influenced to do so after hearing your version of "Stretched", which is just a sick song.

If they could get to the moon in '69, they could surely broadcast music to a wider population. If a boy can eat a whole pizza pie, surely he can eat just one piece.

Ah, I misread what you originally wrote. I thought you were referring to technology such as mp3s and such, which are easily distributed to the masses. I retract my comment ...

I voted for the 40's because i really like when bands cover other band's tunes or do standards with their own twist. There seemed to be a lot more of that going on back then.

And Gene Krupa who played rock before anyone new what rock was.

the thing with music today is that it is controlled and not expressed as it was back in the day.

I sort of see what you're saying but that doesn't mean it cant't be just as expressive. The artist writing it can put in just as much effort and expression into sequencing such a piece to make a brilliant song than someone else playing it!

Although some of the stuff in the charts nowadays is recycled crap, there's a hell of a lot of impressive writing out there. You just need to look.
