Yes, each generation thinks that the following generation’s music is talentless rubbish that does not compare to the works of the previous generations. Why is this so?

Well firstly let’s consider the demographics. There is Generation-X (the “baby busters” that came after the “baby-boomers”) from 1974-1980, then Generation Y (the “Me Generation”) from 1981- 1994, then Generation Z (the “I Generation” or the “Digital Generation”) from 1994-2009.

WRONG... In my opinion the generations are defined by when in your formative years you “bought” your first music track. Was this first purchase a record, CD, or an iTunes download? Now the important thing here is the concept of “your purchase” and not Mum & Dad gave me for Christmas or for my birthday.

So what was your first music purchase with your own cash (hard yearned or pocket money)? That is; you had a choice to spend your money on other things but you choose that music for a specific reason. This “purchase” moment and its preceding purchases really defines your generation as; the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, or 00s (naughties).

Still don’t get what I mean? Well just hop into the family car and turn on the radio. Odds on bet there is Mum’s station, Dad’s station, your station, and junior’s obnoxious station. Or do you plug in your iPod or MP3 player and flip through the tracks.

Hence your generation is defined by your music scores.
