    Since she was about 5 when it was released, this isn’t exactly a shock. It’s an anthem for the late X’ers, but she’s a Millennial.

    Yes, yes, I know. But I don’t need Malia to remind me I’m old, I can just turn on the local “oldies” station and listen while they play music that came out when I was in High School 😀

  3. I’m reminded of the double take I did a while back when I was in the supermarket and a muzac version of “I Wanna Be Sedated” by The Ramones started playing.

  4. Awesome music video apropos to this discussion:

    Stop it, punks. I’m old enough to have been there at the birth of rock and roll.

    Rock ‘n’ roll? Pshaw. When I was your age, we just banged stones together. We were so poor we couldn’t afford the roll.
