    Beloit College Mindset List

    One of my favorites:

    Some are dumb, but they just kind of illustrate generation gaps for me...

    Like mentioning Czechoslovakia to someone or telling a story about getting Domino's pizza free because the driver was slow, and having the youngster you're talking to give you a blank look.

    They are rock (Alternative rock, grunge rock, whatever) unless you hold to a very strict definition of what is rock.

    I just read it. Kind of a waste of time. Especially since apparently these college graduates are so stupid that they don't know what Czechaslovakia was?

    I suppose for a radio station, you'd classify it as rock. I just don't personally put the likes of Nirvana and, say Metallica in the same category.

    In the same category as "Rock?" Rock is an EXTREMELY broad term. What do you categorize as "rock" then?
