  1. This thread idea is totally original despite what you might think. I'm definitely not lifting the concept from anywhere.

    1991:

    Nirvana - Nevermind
    R.E.M. - Out of Time
    Public Enemy- Apocalypse 1991...The Enemy Strikes Back
    Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Into the Great Wide Open
    Soundgarden - Badmotofinger
    Smashing Pumpkins - GIsh
    Temple of the Dog - Temple of the Dog
    RHCP- Blood Sugar Sex Magik
    Pearl Jam - Ten
    Tribe Called Quest- Low End Theory
    Metallica - Metallica

    Great year IMO, as I love both the early 90s alt rock and hip hop scenes.

    Bonus question: was your birth year better for albums or movies IYO? For me I say albums easily.
     
  2. now accepting: pity replies
     
  3. 1984 - Van Halen
    Purple rain - prince
    Born in the USA - Springsteen
    Ride the lightning - Metallica
    Like a virgin - Madonna

    Better movies than albums

  4. god I hate 80s music with only a few minor exceptions
     
  5. my baby photo album

    80s hip-hop isn't so bad
     
  6. The Smiths - The Smiths
     
  7. All Eyez On Me-2pac
    It Was Written-Nas
     
  8. The Slim Shady LP- Eminem
     
  9. I can dig some of it but a lot of it just sounds too dated for me.
     
  10. True, most of the stuff I was thinking of was actually late 80s anyway, when it was just about ready to transition from 808 to the more beat heavy, dark stuff like Straight Outta Compton and into the early 90s. I've just always felt there was a charm to the slow-paced story telling stuff from back then, like what BDP and Slick Rick were putting out.

  11. I loooooooooooooove Slick Rick. Easily my favorite rapper from the 80s
     
  12. Straight Outta Compton is fucking sick. Actually, I had to learn a bit about that song for music class at school, as well as Fight the Power and a few other songs. I do enjoy me some 80's style rapping really.

    1994:

    Superunknown- Soungarden
    Division Bell- Pink Floyd(God I love this album)
    The Downward Spiral- Nine Inch Nails
    Ready to Die- Biggie Smalls
    Giant Robot- Buckethead I love my parents, Star Wars cover, Binge and Grab, Welcome to Bucketheadland>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>so much. Such a solid fucking album.

    That's it. Had a pretty solid year, considering the fact grunge took a hard hit with Cobain's death, but Superunknown keeping it a bit strong. The last album by Pink Floyd, that's a heartbreaker in it's own. Biggie's ironic album, and the Nine Inch Nails album that had kids talking about fucking like animals. Giant Robot, I can go on and on about this. Such solid work, by Buckethead, this is his second album and he has that pro sound already. He kicks it up in such a technical way, throughout the whole album, but when it hits I love my parents, that's a real tear jerker that honestly comes out of nowhere since the rest of the album isn't like that, nor was Bucketheadland like that.
     
  13. Ready to Die is one of my top 5 rap albums
     
  14. Jeez I was in college! :-(
     
  15. Damn I feel young :/
     
  16. Jim Croce - You Don't Mess Around With Jim
    The Doobie Brothers - Toulouse Street
    Foghat - Foghat
    Dr. Hook - Sloppy Seconds
    Elton John - Honky Chateau
     
  17. lol faggot

    80's music > > > 90s/00s/now

    Though idk much about rap, but still :pity1:
     
  18. 70s >> 60s >> 90s >> 80s

    Early 2000s still had enough great rap that I would consider putting it ahead of the 80s.

    What do you like from the 80s? Its a bunch of bullshit that I hear

    except Michael Jackson and some rap. MJ is the fucking man
     
  19. Solo Bootsy Collins, Dio, Black Sabbath with Dio, Run DMC, Bernard Wright, Frank Zappa, Iron Maiden, start of Nine Inch Nails, Primus, Queen and many others were very good in the 80's.
