I'll settle for now because I can get the music from whatever generation free and without having to walk down to the shops.

And it takes up less room to store.

definitely not, but living through it would be pretty cool. given that, you know, you'd then continue living and eventually see today and the repercussions it had
i mean goddamn imagine living through the whole civil rights movement in the 60's and then seeing obama get elected.
who cares if he's a good president THERE'S A BROTHA IN THE WHITE HOUSE

Actually what you said was that, in the 60s, wars were about to come to an end and racism and sexism were about to be eliminated. I don't believe that those things have come to pass so I kind of assumed you were being sarcastic. Are you telling me you weren't?

Good point. Don't be one then.

Being born in the 90s was great. living my teenage years through the 00s was great. 60s has a great mystique around it, all the love, change, free speech, drugs (even though I don't partake in them) but it's probably nothing more than mystique, being born in the 60s may have been boring. The 90s and 00s were good enough for me although there are some things about this generation I despise.

Well we can't do anything about it now, but aside from all the events you guys threw out there, I think that the OP was really just talking about the music, and all the breakthrough acts that were popping up.

This isn't LifeBanter.

True.

I still don't wish I was born fifty years earlier though, even just in terms of music. That would put my birth year at 1927 so I would have been a teenager during WWII, a time when records were not produced due to a shortage of materials needed for the war effort. Sounds like a crappy time to be a budding music collector. Though it would've have been cool to hit my late teens/early 20s just in time to catch the early years of bebop live.

I think I was born at the right time. I saw the Beatles play at the Hollywood Bowl twice, once in 1964 and again in 1965.

On such television shows like American Bandstand and the Ed Sullivan Show I saw all of the popular bands from back in the day.

I consider myself to be very fortunate and lucky to have been nable to see these bands at the height of their popularity.

I consider you very lucky aswell. Sure, we can listen to the Beatles music nowadays in probably much better quality than before, and there is a very high respect rate for them, but we will never be able to see them live anymore - back in there former glory. Theres Paul McCartney still touring, but its not the same.

I was born in the 90s too, and theres a fair share of good music from the 90s-00s, but then again, theres just as much crap music generated in these last two decades. While The Beatles were the height of popularity even then, the height of popularity for the average mainstream under-20 is Kanye West.

And I hate that.

Not really... I like listening to The Kinks and Jay-Z back to back on my high-tech iPod quite nicely, thank you very much.

If it's about the music then certainly not. we have access to the 60s 70s 80s 90s and 00s, and most of us on here will live to see the '10s'

I'd rather be around now and have access to all of them. Not too fussed I wasn't around bands when they were getting big. Knowing me when Beatlemania was around I would've hated them "Girls, they're so overrated. Just 4 poofs from Liverpool with stupid long hair."
