FYI TUMBLR: THIRTY-FIVE YEAR OLDS WERE BORN IN 1979. If yon cool dad was gettin’ down to fuckin’ t.rex he was doing it because his mom never noticed glam was dead and danced around with him in the livingroom after changing his diaper.
A more accurate list of artists that 35 year olds will jump to the dance floor for if we want to reach back into those ANCIENT days of our teens and early twenties, in no particular order (and with PLENTY to make fun of):
The Fugees, Right Said Fred, Janet Jackson (especially Rhythm Nation or later), TLC, Ricky Martin (livin’ la vida loca), Britney Spears, The Backstreet Boys, MONTEL FUCKING JORDAN (THIIIS IS HOW WE DOOOO IT), Sugar Ray (though will probably pretend it’s ironic), House of Pain, Robyn (the first time she was awesome, before you fuckers were born), Ace of Base (because we saw the damn sign, alright?), Usher, Coolio, En Vogue, Snow (It will DEFINITELY be ironic), Madonna (she is eternal, let’s be real), Salt N Peppa, The Proclaimers, Prince and the New Power Generation, PM Dawn, Red Hot Chili Peppers, SIR MIX-A-LOT, No Doubt, Color Me Badd (but we’ll be totally ashamed of ourselves), Mariah, Whitney, Michael, Guns N Roses, Barenaked Ladies, Will Smith (both during and post-Fresh Prince), Fastball, Chumbawumba, Nsync, The Spice Girls, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Hole, Jay-Z, Smashmouth, Moby, Blackstreet, R. Kelly, Christina Aguilera, Jimmy Eat World, Destiny’s Child (BEYONCE IS OURS), Pink, Nelly, Sisqo (thong th-th-th-thong), J-Lo,…
and on and on and on. If you’re gonna make fun of my generation, get it right. There are so many things you can mock us for, truly. But damn it, we grew up in the 90s. N-I-N-E-T-I-E-S. Oh, and you’re wearing our clothes, btw.
