Does controversial mean incorrect?
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

The 70s was the best musical decade.

You're all a bunch of cunts (to the tune of Ode to Joy)
Like fast-moving clouds casting shadows against a hillside, the melody-loop shuddered with a sense of the sublime, the awful unknowable majesty of the world.

I was having this discussion last week with someone. During just my four years of high school, there was the rise of disco and the start of punk/new wave and hip-hop.

That was almost 40 years ago and those three forms are still greatly influencing contemporary pop music.

That is not controversial. The founder if small wonder, a legendary punk record shop in walthamstow, said "it was the era of Genesis, Queen, and the glam rock outrage [that led to punk]".
