In terms of who were the best act each decade(not when they were formed), I'd go with...

50's - Elvis
60's - Beatles
70's - My head tells me Led Zeppelin but hey, I'll be honest! I'm going with the calming influence of the Eagles!
80's - Bruce Springsteen
90's - R.E.M.
00's - Bell X1

50's- Chuck Berry
60's- Bob Dylan
70's- Sex Pistols
80's- Echo & The Bunnymen
90's- XTC

I haven't heard enough modern music to really give a favorite artist for the 00's.
