Just name the album that you think sums up the music of each decade.

1960's- Tommy - The Who
1970's- Led Zeppelin III - Led Zeppelin
1970's- Dark Side of the Moon - Pink Floyd
1980's- Live After Death - Iron Maiden
1990's- Ten - Pearl Jam
2000's- Too soon to tell for me


Yippee for a non-debatable thread

EDIT: this is about your opinion on the decade. Just name the albums that you think effected that day's music the most. 60's were the beginning of rock so I put Tommy. 70's were more psychedelic and experimental so I put Floyd and Zep. When I think 80's I think of hair metal. You might think of disco or underground rap... or cocaine. It's all what you think... not about "this did that so that makes this the best choice...". There really is no right or wrong answer.

1960's- Are You Experienced? - Jimi Hendrix Experience
2000's- The Massacre - 50 Cent, you can already tell from the direction commercial music is headed. Or maybe Infinity on High?
#4
90's- Nevermind-Nirvana
with out that you'd never of even heard daughter by pearl jam


ill do some other decades
THIS IS MY OPINION I KNOW THIS DOESNT SUM UP THE WHOLE DECADE

70's-Never Mind The Bollocks heres the Sex Pistols-Sex Pistols
80's- Fresh Fruit For rotten vegetables-Dead Kenndys
90's-In Utero-Nirvana( i know i put nevermind up there, it was way more important than in utero but i like in utero soooo much more it was more important for me, besides the fact that without nevermind i probably wouldnt know in utero or Nirvana in general)
00's- i have no idea, most likely some rap album despite what i wish
R.I.P. Kurt Cobain

i dont think infinity on high. it really doesnt sum up the whole decade. probably needs to be a rap or hip hop album like you said.

Pearl Jam never had an album called Daughter. The song Daughter was on Vs.... and if you're picking a Pearl Jam album then Ten would be the logical choice.

And I'm a bigger PJ fan than a Nirvana fan... but Nirvana would be a better choice to me to define the decade... The Bends by Radiohead popped into my mind too for the 90's.

Subjectively, or objectively? Because for me, those lists would differ insanely.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

I just did 70's and 80's because I'm not really familliar with alot of other music, but this list has the advantage of not being biased towards mainstream rock and metal.

idk why, but i have a feeling music will get alot better in the 10s... everyone here that plays guitar and could make music, thinks current music sucks, so the music of the 10s will probably be metal/grunge coming back. Bands like Lamb of God are getting more and more popular...

Personally I just don't think metal will ever be that reigning genre. I think it'll always be big, but not as big as like Classic Rock in the 70's or Rap or Hip-Hop is today. I just think that metal is a connoted with "punk" and "mad" and "underground" and "angry" things. It'll never be the mainstream IMO.

60's - Whatever Jimmi Hendrix something blah variable ABxY (Introduction of hard rock as a popular genre....and very free spirited music)
70's - Pink Floyd- Dark Side of the Moon (Introduction of mutating hard rock into something amazing. Transluscent and reflective.)
80's - Guns n' Roses - Appetite for Destruction (Introduction of the burnout lifestyle; party hard die young, wear leather. All about being tough with a gentle side, <3 tapping)
90's - Nirvana - Nevermind (Abandonment of guidelines and regulations. A return to introspective and realist music. )
00's - Fall Out Boy - Infinity on High (Psuedo intelligent, drama saturated lyrics with catchy musical composition combines to create the ultimate in easy listening, begging little commitment to the music from the listener.)

These choices don't reflect my personal tastes....just an objective view of music.
