    70s was Dogtown and Z-Boys. 70s was Wayne Wong and the beginning of the Mahres era. Franz fucking Klammer. 70s was the true start of the DGAF era

    I don't think they were any tougher but what boomers had more than anything was opportunity, there is no way i could have what i have now with how little effort i put into it but not everybody necessarily recognised what was in their own best interest

    America was untouched by war unlike yurp where was all kinds of destruction had happened

    There were good jobs so your parents could afford to live in the suburbs and have 3 kids and own a nice Chevrolet

    boomers were born in the post war boom, not sure why they say boomers ended in 64 ?

    ^this

    Being on the end of the boomer gen myself, I associate as much with the exers than the older boomerz. My brother is 10 years older, he's a dirty hippie still, but one that got in at Intel at the beginning of the Oregon start up, and made some bank at the time.

    I don't know who was listening to that but it wasn't us I know that. Probably it was the real boomers.

    why does the baby boomer generation suck so bad

    Credit to the boomers. They did their early adulthood through probably the longest and toughest inflationary economies from 1973-83.
    Unemployment never went below 6% and peaked at 11%. That period in entirety is much worse than the 2008 recession period.

    Although, it was largely the boomers from 1980 to the present that have borrowed and levered up on the backs of their children.

    You know those two observations are highly correlated, right. The collapse helped some with long careers and perfect timing by fortune. Many more saw the company go bankrupt and renege on the promised benefits people worked and planned on in meetings with their planners for decades.

    You guys are so dumb you let us elect trump, IMO. Anyway, I hear composting is going to be big. Big, I tell ya Jerry.

    It has nothing to do with musical taste, just demographics--how many being born. 64 or so is when the WWII gets got too old to make babies.

    I thought you were core with your Inside Llewyn Davis review. For shame faux Holden!

    One thing that's changed is how much, or how little, music and mass pop culture trends. 1960-1970 saw a sea change in pop music and pop music culture. 2010 to 2020? Not so much.

    Are you explaining the science of giving nicknames to groups of people Doc?

    dunfree I was just trying to name bands that represented the zeitgeist as I experienced it. Now everything's so splintered, except Pop, and robots make that already.

    the boring ones would have been my only chance and even then, the massive undiagnosed ADD/hyperactivity that ruled my brain wouldn’t have allowed the focus to yo-yo for 5 days or some silly thing like that.

    It just goes to my point that what makes us so annoying, besides pedantry, is that there's too damn many of us. Or at least there were.

    You guys have no idea of how much better & more enjoyable...life is today, both in the classroom, at all grade levels, and everywhere else... In the good ol' days....life in the disfunctional nuclear family was not fun(to say the least)

    Cream, Hendrix, Airplane, Country Joe, The Mothers, Led Zep, Fugs, Stones, Kinks, Who, Dead, Faces, Floyd, yeah, those 60s bands were such weenie rockers.

    it's odd - and probably intentional - you produced a list of great bands without the interchange of members that made some of the great bands of that era so great.

    +1

    Hardly such a thing as "credit" back in the good ol' days, when the public school systems in poorer communities line you up for a free, all expense paid, trip to Vietnam...
