I'm not Gen X and don't have kids. Can I still play?
Bands from my high school/college days (mid 70s/mid 80s) I would pass on:
Iggy Pop (pre-dates the time above but I gravitated towards him then)
The Softboys/Robyn Hitchcock
King Crimson (again - a bit before the time above)
CheapTrick (a guilty pleasure)
Camper van Beethoven
Crack the Sky
Husker Du/Bob Mould
Joy Division/New Order
New York Dolls
