Were The ’90s The Best Music Decade Ever?
Andrew Parker - March 20, 2018

It’s unarguable that the ’90s was an epic decade for music. From it’s disorganized start in the ’50s, to its romantic childhood in the ’60s, it’s overloaded fall in the ’70s and it’s surprising recovery towards the end, then it’s doubtful wobble in the ’80s, pop music in the ’90s was old enough and had gone through enough experience to do it’s job in the best possible way, knowing what to do, and what not to do.
 
There is no other decade that is comparable in terms of diversity and variety. The ’90s simply cannot be defined by one single thing. There was so much going on at the time. Rock and pop took over planet earth like never before. Guitar music was enjoyed too with grunge.
 
Seriously, who doesn’t absolutely adore Take That and the Spice Girls? Or Madonna’s ‘Vogue’ that started out the decade and ended with Britney’s ‘Baby One More Time’.  Once dance music made it’s way into mainstream club culture, the charts become more colorful, funkier and made us dance harder than ever before.
 
There was so much brilliance in the work of the ’90s. REM’s massive period, Throwing Muses, ‘OK Computer’, the first Garbage album, Michael Jackson’s ‘Black Or White’, the C96 revival, Green Day’s ‘Dookie’, Pixies, ‘All That She Wants’ by Ace Of Base, Prince’s Batman soundtrack, ‘Groove Is In The Heart’ by Deee-Lite, ‘Unbelievable’ by EMF, Guns N’Roses, and so, so, so much more.
 
And just as the decade had rock and pop and their finest, it also provided a high standard for the best things, such as the internet, amusing videos and social networks, which have significantly changed the music world we know today.
 
Not only in terms of how file sharing has torn apart the music industry,  and leaving artists hungry, but also now we all have an incredibly mount of access to music.  Some argue that this takes away the unique magic of the music, but there are of course still many benefits.  But basically, moral of the story, the ’90s were amazing and we must revive them.
