Agreed. late 80s-early 90s is the time almost all of my favorite music was recorded.

I used to think that about the eighties, too (except the part about disco - that was a 70s thing). Once I got into the experimental/avant-garde, industrial (kind of goes with the previous genre), punk rock, post-punk, and the indie/alternative areas of that decade then I reconsidered.

Most interesting avant-garde/post/punk bands are from the late 70's.
Yes they flourished in the 80's, but they origin from the 70's.

Whitehouse, Minutemen, Galaxie 500, Pixies, Idiot Flesh, Thinking Plague, Sonic Youth, Mnemonists (although technically formed in 1979 under 'Biota'). Just to name a few off the top of my head. Although, both the Pixies and Galaxie 500 is more aimed at my original post when I made a reference to indie and alternative bands.

Plus, I thought it was more important when they started to make albums and create an impact on music. Most of the industrial and no wave musicians were formed in the late seventies, but didn't even release an album until the early eighties, but they're usually considered to be musicians from the eighties.

Sonic Youth formed in 1981. And there's loads more, Dinosuar Jr., OAR, nearly everything in the hardcore punk vein... You even have 80s in your collection. REM, The Bangles, Giant Sand, Gipsy Kings, more or less Joe Jackson, Level 42, erc... there's good stuff among the bad, like any decade.

Joe Jackson definitely 70's. After that he didn't make that much good music if you ask me .
You got me on Giant Sand, altough I mostly like their later work.

Haha well then... good thing you weren't born in the 70s! I imagine it would be hellish for you being a teenager through the 80s.
