This is a question The generation game

"Touch my bum, this is life", glowers Richard "Interw3bz" McBeef. I was recently asked "What colour was your hair?", which made me feel well old. Tell us about moments when you realised you were knocking on a bit. Conversely, perhaps you are a sprightly young whippersnapper who is exasperated by the older folks: do tell.

I found a copy of Ministry of sound
2000 in a CD shop in birkenhead. It was the same copy i had when i was in Uni. Which i had lost, or had become too scratched to listen to. It was even still in a celophane wrapper. Amazed, I put it on in the car home for my 12 yr old son. These are classics, I told him.

Getting the first tune up, I quickly realised this was one of the shit songs, so i skipped after 20 seconds... the 2nd song was the same.... Then the 3rd was Zombie nation, which was ok for about a minute and it started to annoy me... Alice Deejay was 4th, which was great until that also started to annoy me...

3 mins later I was skipping out of song 21 and the CD returned to song No.1

Bollocks I thought... They were proper tunes when i was a kid, and I used to make my whole family put up with the music from the backroom everytime i played on the Playstation.

Took the CD out of the player, and returned to BBC Radio 2. ELO mr blue sky was on, which we both sang all the way home.

That sort of "music" only works if you're either too young to know any better
or off your face on pills.

To be fair most people thought it was shit in 2000.

Ministry of Sound
Is music for plebs and nonces.

And as both a pleb and a nonce, dozer's the expert there

just a bit surprised that anyone would describe MoS as 'classics' m8, in 2000 there was Tyrant and GU, why an adult would actively opt for plebby noncebeats over stuff like that is beyond me, maybe it's a Transformers thing, I just dunno
