“It’s like the every-other-decade theory, you know? The ’50s were boring, the ’60s rocked, and the ’70s—oh, my god, they obviously suck. Come on. Maybe the ’80s will be radical.”
— Cynthia Dunn, Dazed and Confused
In visual terms, here is Cynthia Dunn’s “every other decade” theory (yellow = rock, red = obviously sucked):
1950s – Boring
1960s – Rocked
1970s – Obviously sucked
1980s – Radical
1990s – ??
2000s – ??
2010s – ??
What do you think: did the 2000s rock, and the ’90s and ’10s obviously suck? Does Cynthia’s Every Other Decade theory hold water?
And what’s your favorite decade?
