I searchbarr'd, nothing.


So what decade do you think rock was at it's peak?

I think the 60's was the most important because of the Beatles, and other HUGE influences in rock n' roll made the biggest impact in music.

Poll coming.

Right now because we have access to the music of the past decades and this current one.

All decades have their merits.

how about the way your entire country generalizes a culture by the actions of a few, citing any Americans idea of a middle eastern person.

60s wins by a long shot. Just think of it this way, in the 60s music wasn't just some entertainment but it became apart of everybody's lifestyle. It was apart of the atmosphere and vibe of the times - especially in Britain. We haven't seen that since.
Signed.

The 70s. Classic Rock at its finest

close between the 60s and the 70s for me, because we have the awesome classics from the 60s, which paved the way for the equally awesome prog rock generation of the 70s.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

Be sure to be able to recite at least one Shakespeare quote before and after each song.

Yes, but the classics we have access to weren't written and recorded this decade were they?


This topic is about in which decade was rock at it's peak, not when the best songs were written, I believe now since we have all the rock of the past (as well as other genres) and rock from now are available to everyone.

90s had the best form of Outkast, too. And Smashing Pumpkins. What the hell does the 70s have on that?

Please, don't tell me you're one of those douchebags? Doesn't matter how they find out about it, chances are the kids who just listen to the songs from guitar hero are the ones who would just listen to a couple of a bands most well known singles if the game didn't exist. I don't own guitar hero (but i have played it) and I have discovered a few bands that I have grown to like because of it.

And it doesnt matter anyway because i mean anyone who actually is interested in music has access to every past decade and the music of their own rather than a kid in the 80s who only had that decade, the 70s, 60s, and 50s. And you know what? Guitar hero has actually done a lot for "classic rock," most of those kids would be listening to Little Wayne and Nickelback if they didn't become the guitar hero posers you say they are.

Beatles sucked in the '60s. They sucked in the '70s. They sucked in the '80s. They sucked in the '90s. They suck today.
Just my opinion.

yes, but you must remember, most of this current era sucks...
Jonas Brothers,
Naked Brothers,
Maroon5,
Hannah Banana, or whatever the **** her name is
Fall Out Boy,
Panic at the Disco,
Metro Station...

see my point?

Anyway. I'm much more of a hard rock/heavy metal fan. So I'd say the 60's-80's. I never got into that hair metal. But the 60's and 70's was when hard rock was really taking music by storm.
