And good stuff didn't come out of the last decade? Or the 80's?

The golden age isn't that golden.

Gotta disagree with you there. 90s rap is head and shoulders above the 80s or 2000s. There was some good stuff that came out of those decades too, but not close to what came out in the 90s.

I think a lot of the albums that came out in the 90s are the best ever.

Nas - Illmatic
Wu Tang - 36 Chambers, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx (Raekwon), Liquid Swords (GZA), Wu Tang Forever, Tical (Method Man)
Dr Dre - The Chronic
Biggie - Life After Death, Ready to Die
2Pac - Me Against the World
Eminem - Slim Shady LP
Jay Z - Reasonable Doubt
Ice Cube - AmeriKKKas Most Wanted
Big L - Lifestylez of da poor and dangerous
Mos Def - Black on Both Sides (and Blackstar stuff)

The list goes on and on. 90s was amazing and truly is the golden age of rap

I know.
If I was born in the mid to late 70s and I lived through the 90s as a teen/adult, I wouldn't have nowhere near as much music as I do now.
I hate this thread so much because NOW is the best time to be around.
Decades of music at our finger tips.
I was just stating my favourite decade for music (not necessarily the best) but it's completely to do with hindsight.

The 90's produced some really really good bands.
But I must admit I've only gotten to know them in the last 10 years.
Things like Calexico, Sublime, Babylon Circus, Belle & Sebastian, Counting Crows, Supergrass, Flogging Molly, The Slackers, Iron & Wine, Jamiroquai, Morphine, The National, Noir Désir, Queens of the Stone Age, White Stripes, Rancid, Tool, Friends of Dean Martinez.
I think the 90's were quite nice as a music era, Just not within the top 40.

If you're going to make wild claims like that, you at least owe it to us, as a reading public, to define what a 90's band is.

iron & wine, the national, the white stripes aren't really 90s bands

all their albums have been released in the 00s except for the white stripes debut, which came out in 1999.

Well I know its become fashionable to operate as if i'd posted nothing, but this is exactly my point. Its equivalent to calling Zeppelin a 60's band.

If you're talking about what people were listening to in 1997, it wasn't The White Stripes, and it wasn't Iron & Wine.

A band that made it's first appearance in the 90's I guess.
So I was wrong about I&W and about the National. But you get my point.
I didn't check it. I should have.

TheBig3, half the time I don't know what the **** you're on about and this is one of those occasions.

But The White Stripes main input has been in the 00s, all their best stuff has come out in the 00s.
De Stijll, White Blood Cells, Elephant.
They're very much a 00s band for me.

They are.
As I said, I didn't check that.
But I mentioned quite some other names.
I personally think the 80's were an awful time, musically speaking.
I once tried to make a list of 25 bands from the 80's that are really good.
I don't have to like them, I just want to be able to say: Taste aside, that's quality music.

I couldn't do it...
