When was rock at its best?

Many people today say that there is no good music now. Apparently, nobody actually has musical talents at all because of so much editing in the studio. Personally, I think there is still good music being put out there, but it is getting buried in all this angst-based crying and/or screaming that passes for music. To me, rock was at its peak in the 80s and 90s (not like there weren't good bands before that) and started to go downhill when the whole emo/screamo thing caught on. When do you think rock was at its best? Its worst?

I think Rock and Roll was at it's best in the 60's. I think the 60's generation changed the world of Rock n Roll and brought it to the mainstream audiences. They broke all the rules and we enjoyed the raw energy of youthful exuberance. From the black roots of blues came Rock and Roll and musical greats like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and the Who to mention but a few. Great rock continued into the 70's with groups like Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, Lynyrd Skynyrd. I think the 80's were the end of really great Rock n Roll and the birth of Alternative music choices such as punk and new wave. The 90's brought us rap and other assorted crap and it has been straight down the toilet since. I think the labels of the recording companies are at fault for pumping out all this generic music and making stars out of who they feel like not people that actually have talent. Let's face it these punks churning out this crap are classless acts at best and their music for the most part sucks.

I agree I started liking rock music in the 80's myself. I still listen to a lot of the 80's rock music. I am not sure what to say about the worst time in music.
