Worst Things About "Born in the Wrong Generation" Kids


The Top Ten

1 They're everywhere

I know. Probably because of the issues of today. And there were issues back then too but those kids don't know about it. What the heck. - LightningStrike

I'm one of those "born in the wrong generation" kids and I'll admit most of these things apply to me.

Of course they're everywhere, this is what you deserve for making global warming, crappy music everywhere, 2016 election being crappy, and crappy society.

Are you blinded by the devil?

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

I hate a lot of today's music but I don't hate all of it. Just calm down people. - LightningStrike

There's still awesome video game music - darthvadern


I think the music has declined in quality. Most of the songs are mediocre nowadays however not all modern music is bad. There’s still some good songs and not all older songs are good. - Randomator

3 There has always been bad music.

Man, I wish all the songs on the radio nowadays weren't about love, partying, and drugs! Why don't we go back to the good ol' days when music with REAL MEANING was at the top of the charts! Take for instance, the masterful piece of artwork that was "Barbie Girl" by Aqua. Man, SUCH DEEP MEANING. And seriously, who can forget "Fat Bottomed Girls" by Queen and "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye which were so clean and didn't write about dirty sex at all! And god, screw all these people who sing about partying nowadays! In my day, we had artists like Bon Jovi and AC/DC who sung about ROCKING OUT BRUH! Which is totally different because rocking is for groovy dudes like me and partying is for nerds! - DCfnaf

Yes, there always has been bad music, but the bad music now goes #1 for weeks, while the bad music from then isn't remembered anymore. - allamassal

Every decade has had it’s good and bad songs - Randomator

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

4 They refuse to find some good modern music.

Go underground! You can find rock music there. Duh - LightningStrike

That's not true! I'm looking everywhere, I found a few rock!

I'm hating on this new generation and I found a few good music that's current

Halsey is a good modern music artist in my opinion. I can actually name several others. - allamassal

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

Oi your just bashing the pop music.

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

USA for Africa? They made one song and Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie are in it, which are 2 great singers. - venomouskillingmachine

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

6 They think there is nothing worse than Justin Bieber.

There's WAY worse things than Justin Bieber. - allamassal

His haters have been beating a dead horse for years now. He’s not even relevant anymore - Randomator

Mumbizz01 is a complete douche.

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

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

Music has never been fed to people.
Making up lies to hate it.

Music wasn't fed to people on television or radio, we just enjoyed it because we wanted too get over it.

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

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

The 2010s is mostly known for having iPhones, HD games, epic movies, stuff like that. No word for great music. What about just worry about the technology here. Duh - LightningStrike

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

9 Baby Boomers are internet bullies they bully millennials over everything.
10 It can cause hypocrisy.

2010sTards causes 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

The Contenders

11 Just want to meet John Lennon & George Harrison.

Build a time machine to the 60s, take yourself and all of The Beatles in the time machine and return to this year. Shock everyone.

12 They are usually rock elitists.

As much as I like rock music, no genre can be perfect, and it isn't the only good genre either. - allamassal

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

13 They severely overhate pop music.

Pop is great, pop is great, pop is great. Lol I can do this forever. Wait... - LightningStrike

Rap is worse, and besides, at least half of pop isn't bad at all. - allamassal

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

14 They are not thankful for the generation they are in

I am 13 and proud to be a 2010's kid. Why can't these kids be grateful for the era you grew up in?

Well millennials is the most overhated generation. What decade kid could I pretend to be 50s (parents where 50s kids), 60s (The "cool" decade, the best thing of the 60s was probably The Beatles), 70s or 80s (I could know most some still around in 90s). Not earlier with that WWII.

You could've been on the Titanic.

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

15 They don't like the present, and just stuck in the past.
16 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

17 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

18 They want to go back to when everyone was posh. (Dresses and suits, no slang the Queens English, music with violins in theatres.)
19 Just want to meet every famous person that died when they were a kid.
20 They want to go on the Titanic.

Time travel - You need all of the lifeboats, all ships can sink, iceberg we need to stop the ship from sinking we need to get to New York we can't sink.

Totally this one - LightningStrike

Sure you could have fun from 10th of April 1912, but then 14 April 1912 11:39pm, you won't be smiling anymore. Unless you want to try to stop the Titanic from sinking.

21 They only like entertainment that is over 30+ years old or no one has ever heard of it.

How is that bad? - venomouskillingmachine

The truth hurts painfully doesn't it, you can't comment because of it.

22 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

23 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

24 They worship MTV

It's the original MTV

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

25 They only wish that to be "different" from other kids


26 Ancient Egypt obsession.

See how the pyramids where built.

27 All over Tumblr

Mainly use "Born in the Wrong Era"

28 Moan about Toys R Us closing

Even though I've never been there (Hey I've never even been to America.) Toys R Us in New York looked really fun for kids. Shame it couldn't have changed to another toy store before Toys R Us closed and kept the Ferris Wheel, arcade machines.

29 They're not thankful that it's much easier to access information now

Fine except for social media insults.

30 Most of them miss the 90s despite being born in the late 90s
31 They don't realize that there was still some bad movies, music, shows, games, etc. back then

Batman and Robin, Rage Against The Machine, Angela Anaconda, Superman 64, Aqua.

Rubik The Amazing Cube.

2000s/2010/2020 kids do you wanna be a 90s kid then. Well ever heard of Star Wars the Phantom Menace? You know the band Hanson well ever heard their first song mmmbop? A cartoon called 3 friends and Jerry, you know Mario well in the 90s they had a game called Hotel Mario, other games called Mario is missing, Mario teaches Typing with a giant head.

32 Most of them only listen to popular classic music
33 They go on the VEVO YouTube channel for the singer they hate

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

34 They don't have the passion anymore to change things for the better
35 Just want to meet every famous person that died before they were born.
36 They wished they could go to Woodstock

39 Blokes want to meet Queen Cleopatra.
40 Insane enough want to be in WW2
41 To be a hippie
42 To go to the discos.
43 They style their room like 1960s, wear the fashion.
44 Also called "Born in Wrong Era"
45 They probably don't know about John Lennon's joke about Jesus and that everyone in America hated The Beatles after in the 60s.
46 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)
47 2000s & 2010s kids had to grow up with Kidz Bop. So they are jealous because Kidz Bop started in 2001 (USA) and 2017 (UK)
48 Because they wish they could've seen all of the original Star Wars movies on the big screen
49 They want to be in the mtv generation.
50 They want to go back to when video games was just "Pong" or arcade machines.
