Geez, why don’t they lump ’50s oldies into that category now, too?

28 May

Look, I like all different genres of rock music, but they are different genres.

I hate that my generation’s (X) music, the last distinct rock genre before pop music went completely geh / minority / female, now gets lumped into the ‘active rock’ or ‘classic rock’ mix.

Sheesh.

At least on SiriusXM Satellite Radio, there will always be Lithium and Turbo.

      Same, bro. 🙂

      I feel like an old curmudgeon shaking his fist or cane at a cloud. 😉

        Cudmudgeon? How about Andy Rooney going on about the downsizing of one pound coffee cans? We’re older and, hopefully, smarter. 🙂 I miss Andy Rooney. He had a talent for making the ordinary entertaining.

        Oh, I loved Andy Rooney! Only one worth watching on 60 Minutes, I thought. 🙂

        Except when Andy called for the bombing of Serbia. Warmongering asshole.

        And those eyebrows!

      Same.

      And the 80s and 90s are both different and distinct from the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

    From one of the songs on the list. There is nothing quite as satisfying as a shoot’em up on the big screen.

    I’m not surprised. The other day I tuned in to an oldies station, and they were playing all 90s music. Nothing from the 50s-80s was in evidence.

    You know you’re getting old when all the music you grew up with is too ancient even to make the oldies playlists.

    I watch Jeopardy! And have NO CLUE on any of the music from the last 25 years.

    Except when Andy [Rooney] called for the bombing of Serbia. Warmongering asshole.

    And those eyebrows!

    For all of his endearing folk wisdom and cynical humor, Rooney had an entrenched left-liberal political bent that only grew worse and more obnoxious as he aged. By the time he retired (he must have been in his late 90s by then) he had become unlistenable/unwatchable (by which time I had long since stopped watching 60 Minutes anyway).

      True, he was that dying and now disappeared species, the curmudgeonly liberal.

    I happened to see a few seconds of a segment Rooney did on US Sixty Minutes in Australia many years ago. He was touting for the use of tracking devices on dementia patients. He seemed like a surveillance state shill to me.
    Rest in Pieces.
