Worst Things About "Born in the Wrong Generation" Kids


The Top Ten

1 They're everywhere

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

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

Are you blinded by the devil?

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

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

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

1970s had The Village People, and 21st century kids that wish they were 90s kids well how about the Macarena? Cotton Eye Joe? Barbie Girl? Dr Jones? Mambo No. 5? Mr Blobby had Christmas number 1 in UK in the early 90s.

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

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

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.

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

Oi your just bashing the pop music.

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

Exactly.They think the 60's and 70's were good just because of the music.For me that music is boring.The 70's had less advanced technology so you wouldn't be able to whine about how you hate your generation.Same thing with the 60's and the 60's were worse because racism was a big thing back then and there was the Vietnam war.Also there are a ton of good artists in the 2000's and 2010's so quit your whining.-DarkBoi-X

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.

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

8 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

2010sTards causes hypocrisy!

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

9 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

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

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

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

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 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?

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?

13 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

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

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

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

15 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

16 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

17 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

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


19 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.

20 Ancient Egypt obsession.

See how the pyramids where built.

21 All over Tumblr

Mainly use "Born in the Wrong Era"

22 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.

23 They want to go on the Titanic.

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.

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

This baffles me how so many kids wish they were born in the 90s. We live in the age of the internet where people are learning things faster than they have in the past. What would you choose? To live with as much helpful info as possible or to live with none at all? - DarkMatter1997

Fine except for social media insults.

25 Most of them miss the 90s despite being born in the late 90s
26 Most of them only listen to popular classic music
27 They go on the VEVO YouTube channel for the singer they hate

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

28 They don't have the passion anymore to change things for the better
29 Just want to meet every famous person that died when they were a kid.
30 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

31 Just want to meet every famous person that died before they were born.
32 They wished they could go to Woodstock
33 They hate television shows.
34 They are living in the past ignoring the present and future which is life now.
35 Blokes want to meet Queen Cleopatra.
36 Insane enough want to be in WW2
37 To be a hippie
38 To go to the discos.
39 They style their room like 1960s, wear the fashion.
40 Also called "Born in Wrong Era"
41 They probably don't know about John Lennon's joke about Jesus and that everyone in America hated The Beatles after in the 60s.
42 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)
43 2000s & 2010s kids had to grow up with Kidz Bop. So they are jealous because Kidz Bop started in 2001 (USA) and 2017 (UK)
44 Because they wish they could've seen all of the original Star Wars movies on the big screen
45 Baby Boomers are internet bullies they bully millennials over everything.
46 They want to be in the mtv generation.
47 They want to go back to when everyone was posh. (Dresses and suits, no slang the Queens English, music with violins in theatres.)
48 They don't like the present, and just stuck in the past.
49 They want to go back to when video games was just "Pong" or arcade machines.
50 To not have the insult "Special Snowflake"
