Btw this is for the most significant rock acts of each decade, not "best" or "most influential".

70s: Led Zeppelin
80's: Van Halen or some shit

70s is Led Zeppelin
80s is obviously Michael Jackson

>>61986280
70s would be sex pistols/ramones

80s would be pixies i guess, there wasnt much huge rock in that decade

i dont think van halen are significant enough, at least relatively speaking when compared to the rest of the acts on the chart

'70s is Queen, you tards

>>61986382
Sinatra isn't rock either, he's blues
Rock didn't exist in the '40s
>>
>>61986382
>>61986382
fucking frank sinatra isn't rock
>>
>>61986318
this seems right, with led zep having an almost godly presence with the 18-35 demo (lots of interviews showed people talking about no matter when they were touring, everybody poured out to see them)

van halen fits because there is not other band that defined the decade's excess...metal wasnt mainstream, motley crue copied them, and they're rock.

MJ is a strong case though

>>61986280
40s is Bing Crosby, Sinatra wasn't really that big until he released Songs for Young Lovers in 1954

neither of them are rock though, you should've started the chart in the 50's, OP
>>
>>61986612
Queen was much more popular in the 70s than in the 80s
>>
>>61986612
nah, queen was burnt out til Live Aid and their videos stalled their popularity in the US

Queen's peak was in the 70s, but they don't define that decade either, bc pink floyd and others
>>
>>61986434
>70s anything other than Zeppelin
No. You could argue against MJ for the 80s - you'd probably be wrong but you could still argue against it. But you can't argue against Zeppelin for the 70s.
>>
Anyone who thinks 80s is anything but Michael Jackson can leave.
>>
>>61986708
>you can't argue against zeppelin for the 70s
pink floyd
>>
>>61986532
If we're talking about music in general, I'd say MJ for the 80's EASILY. If it's strictly rock then GNR, AC/DC, and Van Halen all have a case.

If we are going by "most significant, not 'best' or 'most influential'" I think 80s is no doubt Michael Jackson and 70s is no doubt Led Zeppelin. Who was a more popular rock group during those decades?
And yeah, rock being the popular music died after Nirvana. There's good stuff still today, just not popular anymore.

>>61987548
Surprised nobody even brought up Ozzy before this poll honestly. In hindsight he might be the closest artist to an 80s Led Zeppelin in the sense that he almost had a "godly presence" and was sort of a legend. Not sure his music was the best of the 80s though

you're missing the point lad
pop is anything but an exclusive solitary genre
you can be pop-x with x being just about any genre with mainstream appeal

Michael Jackson has a large chunk of his discography that can be called pop-rock. To argue against him being the biggest act of the 80s is just asinine.
>>
>>61987873
It's not just about influence but also mainstream staying power.
TVU barely have the second one, and Cream was more influential than they were anyway.

He is the biggest act of the 80s, we established that at the beginning of the thread - but he's not a rock artist in the same way Kendrick isn't a funk artist just because TPAB was heavily funk-influenced. If you try arguing MJ was the greatest "rock" act of the 80s you're literally a retard.

Sinatra isn't a rock artist in the slightest and he starts off the chart. There are dozens of rhythm and blues/honky tonk/western swing/electric blues/etc artists more of him being in the 40s slot if we're being exclusive to rock artists/influence on rock.

he's an overrated hack who managed to market himself as a master of the avant-garde but really just produced bland pop music that should have been forgotten long ago.
Make no mistake, Bowie was not a good musician but a good marketer, he's not the heir to The Beatles but the heir to the marketing department of Anheuser-Busch. The musical equivalent of a mass produced tasteless fizzy lager marketed as a quality ale. Literally the epitome of faux-music masquerading as art.

This

Bowie was literally an overrated hack more known for his wild appearance than his (lack of) talent at composing or perfoming. He was a trendhopper who basically ripped off other shit that was going on around him and watered it down for a mainstream audience, his few good albums were collabs with more talented musicians like Eno and Mick Ronson

I'd be hard pressed to call Sinatra a 40s singer, but he definitely can't edge out Elvis.
80s is Michael Jackson. 70s are tough. Elton John or Pink Floyd seem like the right answers for the 70s.
>>
>>61989809
my critique to bowie is not that he's too popular, it's that he's a non-musician without an ounce of musical talent, stop projecting.
>>
>>61989841
>stop projecting
>we both listen to popular music too
WTF is it that i am projecting.

Also bowie was of course not an amazing musician, still he knew how to play guitar, piano, sax etc. The thing is millions of people around the world know how to play instruments, that doesnt make them better than bowie at music. The important part of it all is composing the music, thats the hard part, and that is where he was outstanding
>>
>>61989910
you're projecting disingenuous reasons for listening to music.
Bowie was not a great composer, compositionally his songs are nothing special and not even particularly interesting. They're bland, samey and indistinct from other pop music of the time. If blackstar had been released by another (non famous) artist nobody would have given it the slightest interest.

Zeppelin petered out creatively by the mid 70s.
>>
>>61986732
For 80's? Nah, Prince or Bruce Springsteen would probably fill that criteria. Way more of a cultural touchstone than all three of those. Van Halen (and their best stuff is from the 70's) is pretty much a singles band who don't reach too far outside their comfort zone, AC/DC isn't just 80's, and Guns 'N Roses didn't do much except for Appetite and Illusion 1. If we're just talking about bands, Metallica had a better run than all three (Kill Em All, Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets, ...And Justice For All are bona fide classics).
>>
>>61990151
That's an easy argument for any act or artist, but as in terms of objectivity, everything they did (except Presence) is a classic. Nirvana also petered out by the mid-90's (for different reasons, obviously) but they're still fondly remembered as the most important of their era.

A glacial song about as entertaining as watching paint dry.
Completely dull compared to literally any song from The Beatles from Rubber Soul onward. The same glacial rhythm continues throughout the entire song, little in the way of dynamics, the same chord progression and lyrics just repeat without any development. The accompaniment is amateurishly composed and sounds like a dollar store rip off of a Phil Spector orchestral accompaniment. Lyrics are random dogshite, trying to sound like a stream of consciousness writer but without any talent.

Better than Life on Mars. It's a little comical I suppose, but it shows talent and original song writing. It's a great song, I suppose it's not a tour de force of late Bealtes song writing, but it shows the strength and talent of great pop writing that even their worst songs are still far better than most artists' best.

David Bowie even before he died would have been one of the few artists to come close to being the favorite artist of this board. He did experimental albums very well yet he did pop albums just as well. He's edgy but not enough to label him cure level. And he just wrote a final album about dying that released 3 days before he died

save your edgy opinions for a year or two for when /mu/ is on something else.

Typically edgy folks need to get their knocks in when people are sad the dude died, I guess. He's getting the same treatment now that Radiohead will get a few decades from now. "He just took what was popular around him and watered it down." Only popular on /mu/ recently. Give me a break.
