OMG- I've had *THAT* moment.

post #1 of 28

The moment where you are dancing away to a song that used to play at your Sock Hops in high school, and as the station goes to break you realize..... IT'S THE GOLDEN OLDIES STATION!




Then you flip over to the AV Club and read that the Bestie Boys are being nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. That's not fair. I'm not ready to be this old yet.

I'm 45 and I have a hard time getting used to the fact that I can remember things from more than 40 years ago!! This was never supposed to happen!

Yup...I'm only 29 and half the songs I listened to growing up are on the "Classic Rock Station"

Thank god for alternative music...unless they come out with "classic Alternative"

Exactly, I realized the other day that both of my favorite albums Welcome to my Nightmare by Alice Cooper and Bat out of Hell by Meatloaf were released 30 years ago.....

"THAT moment" happened to me in an Austin record store around 1977:

Two girls about 16 or so were talking as they flipped through the clearance albums, and one of them asked the other, "Who are the Beatles?"

And her friend answered, "Some band Paul McCartney was in before Wings."

I had one of those moments when I found out both Home Improvement and Fresh Prince of Bellair are on Nick at Nite now... I LOVED Fresh Prince!

I had that moment years ago when I caught myself singing along to the snippets of some of my favorite songs that are now part of some Time Life collection. (Or something like that - you know, the compilations that they sell on late night TV...)

And yeah, the music I listened to is now "Classic Rock". And I much prefer VH-1 and VH-1 Classic to any of the MTV channels.

One sure sign that you're getting old[er] is when the bands you used to listen to are now playing at the Indian casinos.

Too funny! I had my moment when a 15 year old told me they didn't know who Lassie was!!!

You should have pulled those girls out of that record store. Taken them to your house, put in The White Album and blown their minds.

Wings...

I'm 30 and experiencing the same thing. I never thought the day would come that Motley Crew and Skid Row would be on a classic rock station.

I thought the local college station that has a Goth/Industrial Radio show would be safe, but NO, the dj referred to early Covenant as vintage. The song referred to came out in 1997! It's not that old. Sheesh. Sometimes I feel old...

I know the feeling! I know every lyric too...but you know you are showing your age when you refer to it as an "album"! (don't worry, I still do it too)

I had nightmares when I started hearing 80's and 90's music on my classic rock station

And Menasmom: On a hot summer night, would you offer your throat to the wolf with red roses?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sock_Hop

It started as a 1950's type thing, but went into the 60's and early 70's too. We had "Sock Hops" when I was in grade 6, 7 and 8, which was the early 70's.

Our Principal used to call off class for the last two periods so we could have a Sock Hop. He'd bring in a DJ and let us dance. It was so fun.

BTW, I graduated from high school in 1997, so this was ten or eleven years ago.

I'm still salty about the music I listened to being considered "classic" rock.

Um...I just saw Alice Cooper play on Tuesday. It was the Gallows this time. (I saw the Electric Chair back in the 90s, but never did get to see the Guillotine.)
