50goldenTo celebrate its 50-year anniversary, the UK’s Marketing Society launched 50 Golden Brands, that influenced
of the past 50 years

For example, 1959 was ruled the year of Barbie. ’85 went to Microsoft, ’88 to
Nike, ’01 to the iPod, and so on.

All decisions are subject to change and open for debate by anyone. Take a look and tell them if they’re wrong. I think several are missing especially certain people, rock bands etc. It’s certainly a cool topic for discussion and debate.

An even better discussion is the top brand of the last 50 years! How about the Rolling Stones or Beatles? How about Tiger Woods when he becomes the first billion dollar athlete?  Where is Ali? The void in this list is the absence of the individual brand.
