yes, i like the 60s a lot, and all the established dad rock that came with it, and the prog/punk era that came with it, as well as stuff like sparks or rundgren, to name a few examples. but the 80s can make a solid case for being among the very top tier, and the 90s will always hold a special place in my heart. both because of nostalgia, and also because re-examining the decade has led me to find even more great music (and there certainly was an abundance of it in the 90s) than i had known about before.
anyway, at this point, i could easily say the 60s "because that's where it all began," or the 70s "because that's where it all was explored," or the 80s "because that's where everything took a drastic turn"... but even if the 90s was a bit of a revivalist decade and didn't really break any kind of new ground compared to the 30 years before it, i still find my interests rooted to exploring it more than any other decade at present. even the radio hits have softened on me, and i can throw on shit like third eye blind and not cringe... mostly.
and the 00s... i'll just say mclusky do dallas is one of my favorite albums of all time.
