this is pretty much agreed upon right?
Some 70s classic rock stuff and maybe a little bit of late 60s is listenable but there are so many genres that really have their Genesis (see what I do there?) in the 80s. Without the music I the 80s there would be no rap, techno, heavy metal or indie rock today. Sure a lot of music from the 80 is pretty cheesy but the scope of some of it is just epic and they did so many different things on music during that time period that are just iconic sounds now.
Everything from the 80s is catchy
