Most of my favourite albums are from the early 80s.

The 80s were my choice. Perhaps I was influenced by my brother.

'80's, definitely. I grew up during the decade, so that may have something to do with it

Probably the 70's, not a massive fan of standard Prog(unless you include Floyd) but they and several other big acts(Zep, Bowie, Steely Dan etc) were at their peaks plus Krautrock, Jazz Fusion and then Punk/New Wave.

70s probably the most iconic decade in music, ever.

1976 alone made the entire decade iconic.

90's imo, it's very easy to look at the 70's as the decade of great music, but imo after the 1980's, the 1990's set music back on the right path. I think bands like Tool are every bit if not greater then bands like Led Zeppelin, the 1990's era just cant be beat for me but i will admit i am a little biased considering i was born in 76.

Early to mid 90's I would agree. Late 90's however is where it started to unravel.

For hard rock and heavy metal the late 60s through the 90s is all good.

For top 40/pop/easy listening, 80s and 90s can't be beat.

I also appreciate classical music, as well as blues.

For me the 70's were the best. Four of my top ten bands are from the 70's:

Led Zeppelin
Queen
Pink Floyd
Eagles

I lived through the entire 1990's. Looking back, I've only grown fonder
of nearly every song I even passingly glanced at. Even songs I thought I hated.
So, I can't be pretentious. I must be true to my heart.

My heart BLEEDS love, uncontrollably, for the 1980's.
And I will never say it's a lesser decade (even slightly) than the 1990's.
But... I will always feel as though I know it better. Feel it more palatably.
To say the least.

Also... every decade just has their own charms.
Their own fairly distinctive atmosphere, aesthetic (if they're worth any damn).
Though the 2010's really did mostly feel like the 2000's + a redux of the 80's.

As much as I love the legendary metal that came out of the 80s, and all the fantastic rock bands that came out of the 90s, I have to choose the 70s.

I am a massive fan of prog rock, hard rock, and how the big 60s bands evolved their sounds in the next decade, so I'll have to choose the 70s as my favorite decade for music.

I cant choose just one decade becuse my youth music listening spanned from 1975-1985 so I pretty much love everything thing in popular music in that span. i for sure think the best pop music died in the early 90's.
