Title says it all, I like the 50's because the whole thing was just a huge party. I also like the 70's because it's got my favorite albums by my favorite bands.

Edit: I've decided on 70's, especially if we say the 70's starts in '67. That was the best era for all my favorite bands and genres except blues. The Stones, Zeppelin, Queen, Muddy Waters was doing pretty good, The Doors, The Ramones, The Sex Pistols, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, the first two VH albums, Rush, the list goes on.

Edit 2: Figured out how to add a poll.

i like the 90's. A lot of cool stuff was in the 90's. The 50's was uber racist (altho some good groups were acepted like booker t and the mg's and chuck berry ect... ) lol so i dont like that. The 70's i dont like cause their were too many hippys (i think... correct me if im wrong) but did have a lot of cool things with music.

While I started playing guitar in the 90's with the new "alternative" music genre, I don't think I can choose that as my favorite. I think I would have to go with the 30's. All the acoustic blues music. Son House, Blind Willie Johnson, Mississippi John Hurt, Robert Johnson. People making music because they loved it. Leadbelly and Woody Guthrie would be coming along with folk music. Again, more people making music for the love of the music. Music was a part of life at this time, TV would only come at the end of the decade. I think people respected music more in these days than we do now. Maybe I'm wrong.

EDIT--
Of course after I posted this I realized that I misread the title...or forgot. I was posting off of my favorite decade of music, not rock and roll. I would then have to fall back on the 90's, particularly in the early half.

I wouldn't mind living in the 60s or the 90s. The 70s had good music too(especially rock, early metal, proto-punk, and reggae) but it wouldn't be that great to live in if you hate disco, seeing thats what really dominated the airwaves back then.

60s and the 90s had the best bands imo, id say they are almost equal.

The only things I liked about the 80s were the early 80s hardcore punk, thrash metal, alternative bands like dinosaur jr and the sonic youth, and the rise of grunge.

Hair metal and 80s pop music sucks, although I do like Billy Idol....

The 60's (with new innovations happening, like, every week) or the late 70's to the early 80's ('cause new wave is the best).

60s/70s is my favorite.
I don't like the 80s very much.
But I do like the 90s. Although, not as much as I like the 60s/70s.
I guess there are a few good bands that I like in the 00s. But still not as much as I like the 60s/70s.

Yeah I absolutley love the blues, but not what this thread's about. I agree that 30's was pretty great and people respected music unlike us in the 00's.

I love music from the Sixties. I also loved the Fifties, but I'll have to go with the Sixties.

It's all about the seventies, the era when bands like Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Stooges, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Bowie, Deep Purple, Sex Pistols, New York Dolls, T.Rex, Ramones, Thin Lizzy, and many others started/came into their own. I don't reckon any other decade can claim such a rich musical tapestry.

60's were good too (the doors, hendrix, beatles), 80's were ok (contained gnr of course, and van halen/metallica) but the 70's were just amazing. 90's and 00's have been pretty rubbish, frankly.
Gear;
Epiphone Dot, Hondo II LP (wi S. Duncans), Squire Affinity Strat, Fender Deluxe 112 Plus (85w)

Best Bands Seen; AC/DC, Metallica, Sex Pistols, Iggy & The Stooges, The Cure, Dark Tranquility, In Flames, The Answer, The Stranglers.

70's and 60's for sure, it's when Zep got awesome, and the 60's is when CCR got awesome.

Worst i would say is 2000's.

70's for me. I like some stuff from every decade, but the 70's really showed to be a changing point after Joplin, Morrison and Hendrix died. And bands like Sabbath, Zeppelin, Queen, Rush, etc. really made some great music and newer styles.

same, i really like a lot of mid 70s to early 80s country/southern rock, i honestly love that and 70s hard rock, and a bit of psychadelic every now and then

my three favorite bands are tom petty and the heartbreakers, grateful dead, and its a tie between poco and the outlaws, so ya... i like the deads 70s output mostly, 72- 74 and then 76-79 then i like their ninetees output till jerry bit it

I like the 70s for Zepp, AC/DC, Stones, I know Beatles came b4 that but they were there, but i'd still say 80s for GNR, Aerosmith, AC/DC with Brian, etc. so yeah
