YouGov.com took a poll to see which decade had the best music. And usually polls get like 17 responses and then they ship out the info as if it was fact, rather than just answers from 17 of their closest friends and family members. But this poll had around 23,000 people (people are passionate about their taste in music), and here are the results:

1.  1980s . . . 22%

2.  1970s . . . 21%

3.  1990s . . . 15%

4.  1960s . . . 13%

5.  2000s tied with music earlier than 1950s . . . 6%

The 2010s were voted by 3% and our current decade, the 2020s, only got 2%.
