I didn't know the 70's or 80's had good music. Pink Floyd "echoes". Pink Floyd was the only decent music from that time period. 90's, Nirvana, The Melvins, Marilyn Manson.

I actually have some lists of songs I like from the years 1965 all the way to 2008. I just got those songs from my lists. You can guess how long it took me to compile this list. :wink:

If you like that then for the 80s, you've got: Dead Kennedys, Black Flag, The Pixies, Bad Brains (especially check out I Against I or The Quickness), Sonic Youth...there's plenty more goodness.


For the 70s, you've got: Black Sabbath, New York Dolls, The Ramones, Black Flag, The Dickies.

^Black Flag from the 70s. Fits snugly with Nirvana and The Melvins.
