It's hard to choose one in particular as it can be argued they all have

They all have their moments as was said but I personally chose the 1960s because that was the era that musicians properly broke through in their own right and came to dominate popular music. Before this actors and film stars dominated and lead the way.

The 00s was a pretty notable time, when the industry actually made the shift away from physical media for the first time, to digital where catalogue songs could rack up trickle sales and even re-enter the chart...! It really set the scene for the instantaneous nature in which music is available nowadays, of course leading towards streaming too.

Like, all of them of course, but I think the 1960s comes out in front. Not only a melting pot for so much of what would come with music, with no shortage of landmark albums, but it's also probably the most drastic shift in the space of 10 years. The most popular/beloved music of 1960 and 1969 have almost nothing in common.

I'd say the download era was the biggest revolution, changing music consumption from physical (vinyls, cassettes, CDs) to a file you stored on your computer (mp3s)

Got to be the 60’s with the beatles, the stones, supremes, Jackson 5 just to name a few changing how music was viewed building fab followings and making the music business into what it became. Also the shift in musical styles was so different across the decade

Interesting hearing so many votes for the 60’s, my earlier prediction was that it was going to go towards the 80’s due to the introduction of various new genres of music and the birth of electronic music. That’s where my vote went to.

While I love the 90s I think the 80s saw different styles coming through and it was a decade where the record companies were all trying things to change the market and were not afraid to try and shake things up. Every decade brought something new but the last decade I didn't find great musically but it drastically changed the music industry,,I think it's made it hard for musicians to make big money.

Definitely the 60s, mainly because of The Beatles. Before the 60s there were barely any artists that actually made their own songs, popular songs were all just songs written to be performed by lots of different artists.

00s a close-ish second for the reason Joseph said.

The 60's. The change in music from one end of the decade to the other was earth-shattering culturally, in terms of recording sophistication, and also in laying the foundations for every subsequent genre of music. It's all there. It wasn't there in the 50's beyond a basic rock, blues, country, folk, doowop, ballad, classical template. Pop music became a lifestyle, as opposed to something to singalong to down the local dancehall.

By 1970 we'd had synth, rock, metal, progrock, funk, punk, reggae, soul, rap, disco, pop, world music, and fusions with all of the 50's genres to boot and so much more. All subsequent genres have their roots in the 60's, plenty of them sampling directly to underline it...

Err every decade brought something new, different and (potentially) better. But probably the 1960s most of all.

If I had to choose one decade I would choose the 80s, that was the decade that saw indie, hip hop, electronic music and R&B becoming popular in the first half of the decade and house and rave music towards the end. The late 70s were important for electronic and dance music development though. For pop, rock and soul music the 60s were most important.

Although it really started in about 1964, aside from the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Supremes becoming popular, the influential 'You Really Got Me' by The Kinks went #1 in that year

I guess the right decade is out in the lead, but it’s true that every decade brings something new and unique, and it makes you wonder what the roaring twenties will be like this time around.
