I kept thinking, "This is horrible, I should turn it off", but they kept using more hilarious examples.

Really? I think they got many of the years right. Maybe some of their examples at a bit off but 79..84..87..88..69..91.. Id rank those years pretty highly myself. Very happy to see 87 get the love

The only thing about 87 that kind of sort of was inaccurate was that while GNR's Appetite came out in 87 it didn't become popular until a year after its release.

This.

It's really the examples they used, more than anything, that made this a strange one.

Plus, Watch Mojo has this bad habit of not wanting to have two really obvious things back to back, sometimes, so they lump them together as one entity, instead, so I thought it was quite a cop-out for them not to have '67 on the list, where it belonged.

It's an interesting conversation, though. I've long said that 1984 is my favorite year of music, so it was nice to see the inclusion.

When you really check it out the 80s were such a great decade for music. I hate it when people shit on it.

I thought Def Leppard were a heavy metal band, not a shitty parody of REO Speedwagon.

Yeah they're neither. That song is so fucking terrible compared to Photograph, Hysteria, Animal, etc.

I laughed so hard when that Shania Twain song came on. Like seriously, one of Shania Twain's least memorable singles is a legitimate reason why 1999 is a great year for music?

Is it bad to admit that I really fucking enjoy several Shania Twain singles?

Those were two examples of terrible picks, agreed. Them leaving Hysteria out of the 87 parade (they did, right?) is ridiculous...but oh what a year 87 was.

Of course, they're not going to list Substance, Music For the Masses, Strangeways, Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me and many others, but I sure will lol

I agree, Gabe, that the 80s had a ton of great music btw. My Desert Island entry this time was 95% 80s because I felt like giving an underappreciated decade some shine.

As far as classic albums and significant musical movements go, I personally think it drags behind the 60s and 70s by a little bit, but there's no reason to bash the whole decade when so much of it was great.
