Dude, you're the one who asked to have him removed from the discussion.

No, it's not. It's based on what music, in general, ruled the decade.




Frankly, if Coldplay and/or Radiohead (to a lesser extent) is the "best" the rock genre has to offer....well that imo adds even more weight to my statement that the artist would most appropriately be hip hop.

I always laugh when Bono says that U2 was the number one band in a decade (the 80s) of really bad music so he's not sure how much of a compliment that is. I think that applies to the 00s far more appropriately, but then again I think the 80s were brilliant.

Plant is arguable
Bonham is arguable

Finally something I can get behind in this thread.

There's really no way for me to get into this discussion without coming across as a Radiohead homer (which, let's be fair, I am). They've got my vote for this completely arbitrary and meaningless title given out by a magazine which loses even more of its relevance with each issue.


And on the topic of Opinion v. Fact, is it not pretty much implied just about every single one of our posts is our opinion, especially in a forum as subjective as B&C? There's no real point in having to put IMO after everything, and that's not only because every internet acronym other than GFY is lame. We know it's you're opinion.

If people still are sticks in the proverbial mud about it, an easy way it could be tempered is by trying to include phrases such as "I think" or "to me."

I've been thinking about this topic and I've reached the conclusion that you almost have to break the decades in half. It's hard to find artists that were at the top of their game or even around through an entire decade. For example, The Police spanned the end of one decade and the first half of the next. Between 1980 and 1984 they were the top artist with two classic albums, influential music videos and songs that will be played for decades. There is no way U2 can fairly be considered the band of the 80's with that in mind. So when looking at this decade it might be better to give two titles for this it to represent the first and the second half.

I don't know, The Police were only dominant into about the first third of 1984. Is there a way to get into the smaller fractions?

I dont know if its already been mentioned as I'm a little late to this discussion, but why is the original link so sketchy? No link back to Rolling Stone, seemingly random URL, and asking for an email address to email the results? Am I the only one that isnt comfortable giving my email address?
