for the most part, everything gets better over time...technology, medicine, etc. The best decade so far is this one.

Oh music was better back then? We can still listen to all of that good stuff today if we want. Same with movies, games, etc.

Fashion&style: 30-40s Nothing beats suits, ties, and fedoras. Look at Army uniforms from all over too. Very fashionable period.

Music: 60s. No question. Had so much influence on today.

Film: 70s Capolla, Scorsese, Spielberg, Lucas, etc all took flight this decade

TV: 00s. Sopranos, Wire, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Netflix starting up, etc

Sports: 90s. New media coverage, new training techniques, and new ways of idolizing sports stars.

Technology: 00s Media convergence and integration plays a huge part in technology advancement

Politics: 60s. You read about this decade all the time

Social: 60s. Likewise w/ politics

Literature: 30s. Faulkner, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, poetry, etc all became prominent around this time.

To me that turned out pretty bad. Go into the NBA forum. Every second thread is about rankings and legacies. Not about the sport but just about how the player some "fan" has emotionally invested themselves in is the best. It is to the point where people will criticise a player because they didn't win a finals series (diminishing the fact they managed to even get there) or because another player on the team hit a shot and "bailed them out." For the casual fan basketball has been reduced to jerseys, highlight reels, and box scores.

Well of course, but we're judging it based on when the music/movies were actually made. 70's had Godfather I and II, Jaws, Star Wars, Apocalypse Now, Taxi Driver, Alien, Rocky, A Clockwork Orange, Dirty Harry.....
