Clash of the Titans: ’60s vs. ’70s
As with our last Clash, how you feel about this probably has a lot to do with when you were born, and which decade provided more of a soundtrack to your youth. There's certainly no arguing the fact that both periods brought rock fans plenty of classic albums, and if we were packing for a trip to a deserted island, we wouldn't want to ignore either of them — while rock started to flower in the '60s, it bloomed in a bunch of new directions during the 10 years that followed, and the best moments from both decades sound great with the volume turned up.
Needless to say, we don't envy your task here. But to make it a little easier, we've put together a pair of slideshows celebrating some of the most incredible albums released during the '60s and '70s, and you can check them both out below before casting your vote. (Fair warning: You might end up spending the rest of the day listening to classic records instead of getting any work done.)
And if it's still too tough to pick between them, not to worry: As with all of our Clashes, you've got one week until the polls close, and you can cast your ballot once an hour until it's over at 11:59PM ET on March 29. May the best decade win!
