    Music The 80 s were very important years in music history. Known as the decade of excess, the 80 s brought a more visual experience to music. From fireworks at concerts to MTV, the 80 s made sitting next to the radio a thing of the past. Musicians became more into their image then ever before. The 60 s were the natural, feel good music era. The 70 s were the dance crazed disco era. By the time the 80 s rolled around, people needed something new and crazy. People s hair was outrageous, and the 8...

Nirvana's crunching guitars and mangled lyrical styling's may not have the lasting artistic influence of, say, Bach, but for many people the band's widespread commercial and critical success marked a key turning point in radio rock n' roll. The slickly produced, monotonous a...

    Pop music is incredibly popular. Not only can one hear bands such as the Backstreet Boys or N Sync playing on just about every radio station in the country, but bands such as this can be seen in toy stores in the form of action figures, or on posters hanging on the bedroom walls of pre-pubescent girls nationwide. These pretty faces and high-pitched voices are enough to drive the average, red-blooded male up the wall and beg for the days of Led Zeppelin and ZZ Top. Despite the disdain showed by t...
