Generic, but I've really never asked. I'd have to say the seventies due to the fact that a lot of pre-metal forms of rock were in full swing (prog, southern, blues), and that some extremely important metal acts were releasing their best work (Sabbath, Priest)

Y'all?

Yeah, I went by the overall quality of music that came out during that time. I mean, yeah, a lot of my favorite bands had their heyday in the 80's, but there was so much boring crap then. The 90's had the kinds of music that influenced me the most when I was growing up.

02-23-2007, 08:06 PM
The 80s. A lot of my favorite bands 'peaked' in the 80s like Maiden, Queenrsyche, and Helloween. But also, a good number of prog and metal bands that I thought made their best albums in the 70s (or even the late 60s) continued to make GREAT music in the 80s. And a lot of bands that started out in the 80s, but had yet to reach their greatest musical heights had great starts in the 80s. Also, hair metal wasn't all bad, so STFU :eyes: .

80s....the 70s didnt really harbor much metal.....the 60s and 70s were experimental, genres were still forming, not really a wide variety of music....

The 80s brought rap, new wave, pop, mainstream country, glam rock, metal that stayed relatively underground, etc.....

I on the other hand stated that Sabbath had more of an influence on the crap modern metal bands (which you thought KISS had an influence in) than KISS ever did, effectively bitchslapping your argument six ways to sunday.

I voted for the 2000s, which I think many people unfortunately overlook. I think people just think "the 80s wee so cool, everything was so much better then" without really thinking about it. I think we are currently in an amazing decade for music, particularly metal. The scene itself and the popularity of the music may be lacking a bit, but I think the sheer number of quality bands and diversity of the metal scene now is better than it ever has been. For example, it seems like every year since I've been into music, I've been finding about 3 times as many newer (as in from the mid 90s to now) bands that interest me as I do find bands from the 80s. I think it's just that people hear the big names in metal (ie Maiden, Dio, etc) and just think "The 80s were so much better"... The highs were higher, but I don't think there were as many great bands on a less-known level as there are now.

You can debate the music all day long.....

But, for me, the very best decade to attend concerts was the 70's.

The Vibe was just better than.... the 80's or the 90's.

Now I'm not saying anything to diss the 80's or the 90's....

But.... the 70's concerts just had a groove and a vibe.... in that time and spce, that is is still special, to think of, today.

I wouldn't trade those 70's concerts experiences for the 80's or the 90's....
