I agree, the 60s set us in the right direction for the 70s.

Because, as primitive and childish and music was in the 60s, it was needed to give rise to the 70s, which was actually the best music decade so far, though the 90s did pretty good.

Might be nostalgia, but hot damn, the 90's where pretty amazing once you get away from radio shit. Even some radio shit was good.

Nostalgia is a funny thing, I find it sounds better when you remember it fondly. That said, the 90s was a good decade.

I agree. Here's the listing of percentages from the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

In 2004

And when the list was updated in 2010.

As you can see, many others thought the highest percentage came from then. Of course music is entirely subjective and there is no right or wrong when it comes to what you enjoy. I am a huge fan of that era. In fact I created a catalogue of ~430 songs primarily from the '60's and provided some background info for each song in the associated comments over at PaddysPub. Here's the link.

the 90's and it was great because of how much it took from the 60's. just because tom petty was the best musician doesn't mean that kurt cobain wasn't the best musician.
