Best of EVERYTHING 50-04

Recommended Posts

First off, I guess this really isn't the best of everything.

second, I was going to put this in Random thoughts, but this has to do with all sorts of media including music so I put it here.

From each decade from 1950 to 2004, pick the best band, TV show, movie, and whatever else you would like to add (you can do decades before 50 if you want to). One rule for TV though, no reruns! The best show of 2004 can't be Simpsons reruns or Charlies Angels reruns or something.

and it doesn't have to be the "best movie" just your favorite. For instance, Titanic is one of the "best movies" of the nineties, but I didn't like it. It was too boring.

heres my list

50's

House of Wax

Can't think of anything else

60's

Twilight Zone

Jimi Hendrix

Rosemary's baby

70's

Blazing Saddles/The Jerk

Led Zeppelin

80's

The Simpsons

Airplane!

Queen

90's

Nirvana

Dumb and Dumber

The Simpsons

now

Chappelles show/daily show

White Stripes

Starsky and Hutch (yeah, its been a bad couple of years for movies) Theres probably a better one, but I can't think of it/haven't seen it.

Slash and Duff together for Velvet Revolver

It was a major let down, I thought it was going to be the best thing in music for many of years to come, but I was sadly disappointed. Maybe a different lead singer & some more rehearsed riffs & they could've been a better benefit.

Ok, this is going to be random, because quite frankly, I'm too lazy to sort it all out and make a neat list. (Which, by the way, I forget right now who did it, but there's a list up top that's color coded, sorted by category and decade. Very nice work.)

Anyway, a disclaimer that these are only things from my lifetime, (1964 on),

Running Back ~ Barry Sanders

Concert event ~ Woodstock

TV Show ~ MASH

Fashion trend ~ Hip huggers. (I can't find a thing wrong with them)

Fad ~ Rubik's cube. (I still have mine, and I still haven't figured it out.)

Oddity ~ Evel Knevel

Prettiest band ~ Poison

Car ~ Toss up between the Batmobile and the Family Truckster

Well, I could go on, but I'll have to ponder a bit more.

Thank you, I remember it taking like over an hour to make that post, since I was new to the boards at the time LOL :laughing:
