    90s has to be the toughest for me. It's easily the best decade for music IMO, but my two favorite bands (Pixies and Radiohead) are clearly split between the 90s and 80s (Pixies) or 2000s (Radiohead). There are an overwhelming # of options otherwise.

    Nobody liked Hardwired to Self Destruct? I know thousands who did, and there isn't another live act that can touch em throughout their entire existence. To me and a million others.

    Kirk is absolutely bad live. He's beyond bad. This guy isn't even a professional.

    70s: Cat Stevens (There are artists I'm blanking on at the moment who might displace Cat, but I'm comfortable with the choice)
    80s: REM/Duran Duran (at the time, U2 --AINEC -- but not now)
    90s: Teenage Fanclub
