    I Hate the Music of My Generation

    I hate the crappy music of my generation. When I was a kid I was really into 70s music, still am in fact. When I got to be about 16, I started to get into 80s music more. The music of today is just mindless garbage. I wish I had been born at least 20 years earlier, so I could...
