    2000s
    When it comes to music that is popular, I'll take the 2000's, the decade of emo, eurodance, techno, and post-grunge. However, That doesn't mean I have a preference of any decade over the other. Each decade has music that I like a lot, and to play favorites outside of strictly popular music would be impossible for me. For example, I like 50's rock 'n roll; I really like 60's psychedelic and hard rock; I'm very much into 70's prog rock, punk, and early heavy metal; the 80's has some great new wave and punk; the 90's has grunge, techno, metal, and hip-hop that I like; the 2000's has those genres I mentioned, plus some great metal (especially with the genre breaking out into more subgenres that are really varied), electronic, and even some of the early-2000's pop is pretty great; and when it comes to this decade I'm very much into the metal, electronic (at least the heavier sides of electronic, such as dubstep and experimental stuff), and experimental music as a whole.

    So picking one decade that I prefer over the other when it comes to music in general is impossible for me, so I'll just choose over what pop music I prefer.

    1960s
    They seem so simple now, but iconic riffs like Sunshine of Your Love make this no contest for me. Good Vibrations, Ain't No Mountain High Enough, Space Oddity, Pinball Wizard, All Along the Watchtower, the list goes on.
  • Keep her on the low -Mindless Behavior
    Still not as good as the mac and cheese poll.
  • 1990s
    There is a lot of great music to be found in every decade, as well as a ton of audio fecal matter. As far music in my iTunes library is concerned I have more from the 1990's than any other decade so I went with that to keep it short.

    80s all the way. You have the American punk movement hitting its stride along with the always awesome New Wave movement plus you also get Hair Metal thrown in as a bonus. How can any other decade possibly compete with all that?

    1990s
    Let's see... I grew up with the music of the 2000s, got into music properly in the 2010s, and have a song library of approx. ~8000 songs, from the Doors, Hendrix, and Fleetwood Mac, to Gaga etc. so, naturally, my most played music is 90s alt. (I think).

    EDIT: I checked, and there is no pattern to what I listen to, but 90s and early 00s alt. and pop rock a la Gin Blossoms, Lifehouse etc. are among the most listened to, by song.

    As a metalhead who's really into extreme metal, the 90's, 00's, and 10's are all about equal to me and are my preferred decades to the 80's and 70's. I went with the 10's because I assumed it'd be the least chosen, though before my vote it was equal with the 00's, so I guess I was mistaken. I can't really decide between the three fav decades on any other metric, so I'm leaving it as is.
  • 1980s
    The 1980's, all the way. The era of hair metal, new wave, when rap was innocent (for the most part), when black metal, thrash metal, and death metal were getting their starts, when the dance and pop music was basically universally good, and so much more. I don't think there's a single song from the 1980's I've loathed apart from maybe The Grateful Dead's stuff and the questionable hardcore rap (i.e. N.W.A.), and that's saying something.

    I love the '60's and '70's in much the same way, but there's something about the 1980's that says, "Yes, it may have been cheesy, but it was amazing too."

    @coolkat Ya bring up rap being innocent in the 80's but talk about how the beginning of black/thrash/death metal is a positive? Pretty sure Raining Blood was not about "keeping it posi"

    I do love the 80's as well for a lot of the genres you brought up (60's was awesomer imo), but just about any music ever is not totally innocent, from Little Richard to Young Thug today.

    Ha, I am a man of contradictions! I generally don't think most "serious" rap is really that good with the exception of a small selection of songs (Stan by Eminem is one), and I simply personally like the cheesy, campy classic rap more. Even then, I didn't say it was totally innocent either (I added a "for the most part" in brackets, and I also talked about my distaste of hardcore rap like N.W.A. later on in the same post). On the other hand, my liking for black/thrash/death metal is an odd blend of both objective reasoning and simple music tastes. To keep things short and simple, I have an appreciation for those genres mostly out of a liking for both the technical complexity of the music, the extreme instrumentation, the unorthodox vocal styles, et cetera. To me, those genres being extreme seems more genuine than say, rap trying to be extreme in its own way.

    Hope that clears things up a bit, but then again, it's late and I'm also tired at the time of posting this.
