Eh, every band has that one bad photo from their early days that will haunt them forever.

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.

Well said. I put 2000s as well.
