X-Ray Spex a Gen X band? Surely not (I assume that's the reference in Martha Raye Spex)
I'm Gen X (eeecccch!), and I listened to them, so that was my litmus test.
I agree that the timeline is tricky but really DO NOT forget that technically Gen X begins with people born in 1961! Now Poly Styrene was born in 1957 (!!!) but.
Yes, but you could also have listened to Elvis Presley. Doesn't make him "Gen X" either.
1961? Really? Blimey, I'm a Gen-Xer and never knew it.
It depends on who you ask – some count the "baby boom" as running all the way through like 1965.
@Lee: Sure, but Elvis didn't produce music past 1977, unlike X Ray Spex.
Bruce Springsteen and Debbie Gibson produced music during the Gen X time, but I don't consider them Gen X. It's more of a sensibility.
The Hip Replacements
I would have voted for Miles's "Slowdrive," which made me burst out laughing yesterday.
and apologies is this has already been said (this thread has covered so many posts!) but:
Kidney Stone Temple Pilots
Nick Cave and the Bad Knees
Arrested Real Estate Development
Clarence's "Green River In My Depends" is still haunting me, btw.
Hope that makes up for the dupe Weezer. By which I meant:
Siouxsie & The Bad Knees
was trying to come up with one for them
Elastica Waistband is still my favorite.
Choire really should have included the earlier thread in his decision-making process. There were certainly some gems there. But you go to [REDACTED] with the [REDACTED] you etc.
Story of my life.
Some people listened to hip hop:
Big Daddy Cane
A Tribe Called Rest
De La Soul Active Seniors Community
Grandmaster Hot Flash
@Miles: O RLY?
The Tragically Broken Hip
The Presidents of the United States of Muslin Kenya
