The Top Ten

1 They're everywhere

This is why I find it baffling when people say metal is dying. - WonkeyDude98

They just want EVERYONE else to like old music, not everyone will! - Neonco31

Wherever I go there are people that say "Ew I hate pop music I only like heavy metal! "

I know - RoseCandyMusic

2 They blame most of it being bad on the music.

Well, 2016 has been a pretty garbage year in every facet (probably the worst year since 1933), to be fair. - WonkeyDude98

Music isn't everything! Donald Trump is running for president and that is bad!

Not everything is about music I love music but life isn't about music - RoseCandyMusic

I think the Born in the Wrong Generation Kids is based on entertainment.
Wanting to see either Elvis, The Beatles, Queen, Wham.

3 There has always been bad music.

True, it's just that the bad music from back then got forgotten. - Elina

Always bash pop music and no it has never been the other way around. I do not bash rock or metal music.

ALWAYS. Remember 2006 anyone? - WonkeyDude98

Oh, you like Metallica? WELL, THE 80’S HAD VENOM, so

4 They refuse to find some good modern music.

If you "born in the wrong generation" kids wanna listen to some good modern music, check out Steven Wilson.

Good music and bad music are everywhere - RoseCandyMusic

Dude, you have DAMN, To Pimp a Butterfly, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, Big Sean's stuff, Future's newer stuff, Flower Boy and much more stuff. Do you honestly think talentless hacks like Led Zepelin deserve more credit than these guys do? - AlphaQ

They don't bother because that'd require effort and a lack of bias. Why not listen to Kendrick Lamar or Twenty Øne Piløts or Ed Sheeran or Adele or Sam Smith or Kesha (2017) or Harry Styles or Fall Out Boy or Imagine Dragons or The Weeknd? - DCfnaf

5 They are unaware of the bad stuff that happened in those generations.

Yes, because USA for Africa, Creed, Nickelback, and NSYNC were so good. - WonkeyDude98

Yeah. It's like hearimg someone say, "I want to go to Medieval Europe, because I like to see documentaries of castles and jousting! " without realizing that there's the Plague, almost nobody can read, slavery, poverty, having to hunt for your food everyday, etc. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

You want to be born in 70's or other year so do you want to be see the martial law in the philippines, do you want to see terrible things happend in that year I love 90's but I wouldn't want to wish that I was born on 90's - RoseCandyMusic

Spice girls,WW2,Donald Trump's birth,Backstreet Boyz,Bell Bottoms and more!

6 They want to go back in time purely for the music of the generation

Have fun travelling to the 1960s just to see The Beatles perform a concert of their song. If you can manage to escape the problems with racism, the political system, the wars, and the liberals going around supporting unnecessary methods of peace that can't happen, then you're less likely to make it back to the modern era. - Swellow

I especially felt that this was absurd when I first got into The Beatles fandom. Little did these 15 year old "hippies" know is that the 60s was a pretty bad year regarding racisim, equality, and the government, which I doubt they would like - kaitlynrad11

That's just dumb...today there is much less racism, more freedom, better music, more equality and Internet. Do you really prefer racism over modern pop because it's very immature? - AlphaQ

70s are garbage... - AlphaQ

7 They think there is nothing worse than Justin Bieber.

Oh, there's worse things, but most of them are illegal, disfiguring, or fatal.

Sure Bieber's a complete douche, but there are more terrible people - Mumbizz01

If you hate Justin so much put the blame on his mother, she posted videos of him singing on Youtube.


- Blood on the Dance Floor
- BrokenCYDE
- Rae Sremmurd
- Borgore
- Future
- Tyga
- Chris Brown
- Jason Derulo
- Falling in Reverse
- Limp Bizkit
- Iggy Azalea
- DJ Snake
- Kodak Black
- Sam Hunt

Should I keep listing worse artists? - DCfnaf

8 They are usually rock elitists.

Although I like this genre, Rock is not a perfect genre. We Built This City is a perfect example of that. - Swellow

Metal elitists are less broad, but more vocal and more annoying. - WonkeyDude98

There are very few rock bands left and some people felt that it's the end of the world cause of that! - Neonco31

"U like pop and rap, go die cause u have no taste listen to metal u retard"

Literally a comment by a visitor directed at me. Can they just stop? - AlphaQ

9 It can cause hypocrisy.

So WE refuse to listen to anything outside top 40...when they can't name a SINGLE 21st century act that isn't Justin Bieber, One Direction, Nicki Minaj, or Taylor Swift. - WonkeyDude98

Wrecking Ball has a dirty music video and is hated although the lyrics aren't that bad.
I Cvm Blood is about rape dead people and anal sex, it's praised. Need I say more? - AlphaQ

10 They severely overhate pop music.

Pop music is a great genre, and a genre worth defending. No need to pick on easy targets, or worse, blatantly lie about great pop singers. - WonkeyDude98

Pop is great. It's worth defending and is just as good as Rap music. You guys shouldn't hate on it so much. - AlphaQ

Pop is great, yet people make up lies just to hate it - DCfnaf

I love Pop - Neonco31

The Contenders

11 They severely overrate some bands.

Led Zeppelin, Cannibal Corpse, Black Veil Brides... - DCfnaf

They want to shove everything of them down people's faces! - Neonco31

12 They're not thankful that they're living in a time where the technology is way better than it was back then.

What's better? Being in a time where it is easier to choose the music you want to hear (present day) or being in a time where music was fed to you through garbage corporate medium, like MTV and the Radio. In today's generation, it is a lot easier to get your own music out there, and find more music that you love thanks to the wonderful internet. So stop it, you 14 year old loser. - cjWriter1997

Huh. I didn't think of this one. Good job! - djpenquin999

That's very true

One thing a lot of wannabe 90s kids don't know: The internet was slow as molasses in the 90s. And it only gets worse from there. - Zach808

13 They are not thankful for the generation they are in

I'm proud to be a 2010s kid but I feel sorry for people who think the world is ruined all because of MUSIC! - Neonco31

Before you complain about your generation, remember you could have been born in 1939 - TwilightKitsune

What if you was born when kids had to chimney sweep? Workhouses?

14 They're all over the Youtube Comments Section

Can it, please. I don't need your un-detailed essay on how Stairway to Heaven is better than Baby. I'd obviously agree with it, but it gets annoying seeing it everywhere. - Swellow

(insert name of rock/metal band) is better than (insert name of Popular artist) and repeat that everywhere, you will only get hate - Neonco31

Whose listening in 2017 - Random YouTube commenter

Me, but that doesn't mean anything. - Skullkid755

15 They worship MTV

It's not like MTV was even good back then. It was just as bad as it is now. - Swellow

It's the original MTV

16 All over Tumblr

Mainly use "Born in the Wrong Era"

17 Most of them only listen to popular classic music
18 They fail to see that music is more accessible and listenable than it was years ago

If you wanted a new album, you had to wait 6 hours in a line at your local record store, praying that people didn't buy all the cassettes/records. Add that to the wait time for the music to actually be shipped to the store, and that's a LOT of time. I imagine concerts must be way more packed than they are today, since there wasn't much entertainment with the lack of Internet.
That's much harder than downloading a song on iTunes, am I right? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

19 They go on the VEVO YouTube channel for the singer they hate

Don't like, don't watch. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

20 They don't have the passion anymore to change things for the better
21 They only wish that to be "different" from other kids


22 Just want to meet John Lennon & George Harrison.
23 Just want to meet every famous person that died when they were a kid.
24 They think they are special for liking old bands that were popular back then

They can't seem to comprehend that the Beatles, Queen, etc were popular back then. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

25 Just want to meet every famous person that died before they were born.
26 They wished they could go to Woodstock
27 They hate television shows.
28 They are living in the past ignoring the present and future which is life now.
29 Ancient Egypt obsession.
30 Blokes want to meet Queen Cleopatra.
31 Insane enough want to be in WW2
32 To be a hippie
33 To go to the discos.
34 They style their room like 1960s, wear the fashion.
35 Also called "Born in Wrong Era"
36 They only like entertainment that is over 30+ years old or no one has ever heard of it.
37 They probably don't know about John Lennon's joke about Jesus and that everyone in America hated The Beatles after in the 60s.
38 2000s kids obsessed with the 90s just because 90s entertainment was still around (Spongebob & Ed Edd n Eddy started at the end of the 90s)
39 2000s & 2010s kids had to grow up with Kidz Bop. So they are jealous because Kidz Bop started in 2001 (USA) and 2017 (UK)
