    A good example would be Nirvana and Pearl Jam. Both are seminal acts of the 90s in the wheel house of what I "should" like. I think Pearl Jam's music is great and I've heard "10" about a million times but I have no emotional attachment. Nirvana I could take it or leave it.
    Pearl Jam has always grated on my ears. Nirvana was listenable, mostly. To each their own. Soundgarden was far better.

    I just re-read what I wrote. I'll revise to say Pearl Jam was good not great. Soundgarden and Alice in Chains are both superior. What generation wants to claim this?



    Who graduated HS circa 85? OG Xers? Certainly not boomers. Good hair metal, The Smiths, The Dead when it was all about the drugs?

    I admire your level of commitment.

    The 90s were truly the golden age.

    Foggy gets it.

    This thread is great fun for trolling boomers though.

    Iíd also like to point out that almost every single athletic record that the boomers set has been crushed by the millenials. Even your best would be lucky to make it to the field. Go watch some 1970s hockey then watch todayís. The 1972 Dolphins probably couldnít win the College National Title let alone compete in the NFL. And boomers somehow want to say they are tougher, better, smarter etc than todayís youth... I personally do excuse some of the stupidity of the boomers, after all you all grew up with low grade lead poisoning which dropped your IQs.

    this is a real thing.

    but also vs the athleticism- the level of extra time spent by parents on skills, camps, coaches, nutrition etc that kids get now compared to yesteryear is also why they should be crushing the boomer accomplishments

    iím not trying to come down on any generation, just always found it interesting that lead may have slightly stunted growth and brain function in a whole gen. my dad did a paper on that years ago so I heard about it as a child when I didnt even know what a boomer (or boomer ) was

    Graduated in 85 as an OG Xer, latchkey kid, and punk. As for not having to worry about anything, we did come of age when The Aids was starting. Destroyed all that boomer free love hippy shit for us.

    It's like they are all happy or something, it's weird.
    Billie Eilish has a dark side.

    EDM can be like metal. Head banging and all that.

    Cure and Joy Division are right in my wheelhouse. DCC not so much. The Cure can make people feel sad if they donít get it. Itís emotional music. My gf canít listen to it. Or Billie Eilish. She likes happy.

    Well of course there are some artists with a dark side out there, c'mon. It doesn't mean I'm wrong.

    Interesting take on EDM, ha. I'll go with that I guess.

    Something awful was generally less death porn and more boundary-less humor though. I miss that place.

    Xers have a similar trait but its not nearly as defined. Millennials can't even form basic connections to other humans, so pretending they have empathy is a misuse of the word. They have public shaming and a very strange adherence to the authority of pop culture. I'm not sure Gen X had that.

    Shrug...Every generation has its strengths and weaknesses. I'm sure we'll find some strengths the millennials (as a group) have in the next few decades.

    Straw man. I've never heard anyone--boomer or otherwise--claim that boomers were tougher, better, smarter, etc than today's youth. Now pre-boomers maybe, I give you Babe Ruth, or Roger Maris if you prefer (PED records don't count) and Albert Einstein. And since you're talking about trolling--boomers definitely didn't invent that, and if there's one clear sign of stupidity trolling would be it.

    Q just embarked on 8 weeks of ski camp on Hood.
    i suspect there is free range mayhem but there is also 6hrs/day training for Alpental. i was lucky to get a week at ymca camp chi-da-ka between much free range mayhem.

    You say The Beach Boys and Turtles sucked, but do you remember what came before them? Pat Boone. So maybe a little improvement over that?
