Nobody was good in the 80's. It is the blackhole of musical decades.

The Cure, The Smiths, and Depeche Mode were all good.

And ZZ Top is amazing.

the 1970s since it was the birth of punk, oi, and ska revival

but the 70s are more famous for arena rock of its day, so if it were a mainstream perception of the decade I'd pick the 80s

3/4 of the greatest Stones output, the Clash, Buzzcocks, Damned, Blondie, "Ace of Spades," Wire, Joy Division, Pere Ubu, Elvis Costello peaking early, Fleetwood Mac, T. Rex, Devo, the Modern Lovers, Neil Young, Big Star, the one good ZZ Top album, Can, Kraftwerk, the Stooges, Iggy solo...

It's the '70s, and surprisingly not even close.
