Favorite Band By Decade

Post by FrowningBanana »

Here's an interesting one I was thinking of earlier.

What is your favorite band per the stuff they put out in said decade? (I'm putting the runner[s] up in parentheses, you can but don't have to)

I'm going to start in the 60's because that that's where my music fluency truly starts:

60's -- The Beatles; (runner up; Rolling Stones)
70's -- Pink Floyd; (runner up: Yes/Led Zeppelin)
80's -- Genesis (runner up: Joe Satriani)
90's -- Oasis (runner up: Van Halen)
2000's -- Linkin Park (runners up: Death Cab for Cutie/Radiohead)
2010 -- [too soon to tell but ] Death Cab for Cutie (runner up Radiohead)
Look up. You'll find things that you never imagined you would.

Anarcho-Capitalist, political activist.
Musician, and advocate of secession and non-aggression.
News editor for Being Libertarian, because freedom matters.

Nice idea.

60's -- The Beatles
70's -- Pink Floyd
80's -- Queen
90's -- Radiohead (just because The Bends and Ok Computer were released in the 90's)
00's -- Sigur Rós
10's -- Too many to choose, but I'll go with Radiohead. Runners up: alt-J, Tame Impala, Elbow, Ólafur Arnalds, Crippled Black Phoenix

This thread is making me realize yet again that we live in an amazing decade for music.

Can I add all of the members of Floydians that make music (minus myself) to my 2010s list? Because seriously, we've got a great bunch here.

I'd actually much rather swap out my 2010s pick of All India Radio for the band Moon Safari. Holy shit are they a good band.
