Moonbeam : I'm almost 30 and I feel like this.

grawlix : I feel this way towards the Simpsons

Jimmy90022 : I was with "it" when this aired. He was right.

Zettabeam62 : im only 20 and i can already relate

Hannah Obsiye : the hardest thing about getting old is running out of people who understand you.

Clancy Wiggum : It happened to me :(

Peter Loew : Normally, The Simpsons are funny (the earlier seasons), but this scene is so accurate and haunting. I watched this particular episode of The Simpsons when it first came out around 20 years ago and sure enough things have changed. What's worse, what's "it" changes so much quicker because of the Internet. In the past, there were these different lifestyle cultures, for better or for worse: The beatniks, the hippies, the yuppies, the slackers.. Now it's just one big concoction of nothingness.

johnny Sic : I'm 52 and I've beat it. Never give in never conform and always keep an open mind. Things are only getting better.

Mike Hunt : Aw, man. I wish it had the part where Homer goes "No way, man! I'm gonna keep rockin forever"

Urbanmember1 : This Video explains perfectly how i feel about Video gaming

luke : This is one of the most real life lessons The Simpsons ever taught us

The Struggler : >Chris Jericho right now

Terry I : And it did happen to me. :(

boiledelephant : It's happening constantly, forever. I'm 26 and I have no idea what the hell is going on with popular music. I feel violated every time I try to listen to it.

Scalie Kisses : Whenever some grumpy old curmudgeon talks about "kids today" just remember this. Different generations have a difficult time adapting, and the only solution is to keep an open mind and give new things a chance.

Hazinger Z : 25 going on 26. Video game streamer personality culture, definitely.

Gabsy : And then... it happened to me...

Calvin McMurray : Millennial SJW talking to Gen Z conservatives.

Armando Corona : I'm 23 and what is it seems wierd and scary to me

EvilJ069 : When I first saw this I thought it was funny, now I think "Damnit, this is true..."

Sam Aronow : Middle age doesn't just happen when you turn 40. It starts when you're 25 and find yourself singing along to Doobie Brothers songs.

Suika Ibuki : He....was right.....

Supervillainfan1 : You used to be with Pennywise the Clown?!

busterkeatonsbriefs : Not sure if modern pop culture is terrible or I'm just old....A little from column A, a little from column B.

Rose Supreme : My reaction to most modern memes nowadays.

OriginMSD : This reminds me of me and my dad exchanging cheesy martial arts movies. He wanted to show me stuff like Bloodfist and American Ninja and I got him to watch Ip Man 2 and Forbidden Kingdom. Luckily we still have common ground in Bruce Lee. The cover changes, but the fundamentals usually stay the same. And I think that's important to remember. We're all alike in the end honestly.

Colin Weiss : when the modern day rapper face tattoo thing took over I totally fully understood this clip. wtf is wrong with society.

xYouthAttackx : I don't know what "it" is either. I don't think I ever knew. chances are I will never know.

pottskiller doompotts : Voted for Obama when I was a Uni student in 2008. Voted for Trump when I was a FCKING WHYT MAIL in 2016. It happened to me.

bravo075 : I'm 29 and this is happening to me.

jpf : -sigh- story of eternity

Rockman IXA : Scary because its true... This recent generations of High School teens are the epitome of stupid. They've exceeded my generation in stupidity, and that's saying a lot.

Chris sims : Fidget Spinners

Damon Swartz : Truer words have never been spoken.

TheY2AProblem : I never was with it. Even in high school I was a fan of Limp Bizkit. Totally not the definition of being with it. I guess every generation has that band that's just horrible... like the 80s had Styx. The 60s had the Who if you were a Zepplin fan or Zepplin if you were a Who fan. The 2000s had Limp Bizkit. I don't know, I mean Three Dollar Bill Yall was actually pretty decent.

MadameSomnambule : Me with a lot of kids on Tumblr. And I'm 22.

RandomShinigami7 : I'm 21, and this is how I feel. Back in my day, Batman was all the rage thanks to B:TAS, as was Dragon Ball Z, Beyblade, and Bionicle.  Now it's all about Marvel, Disney, and Ninjago. *sigh* At least we've still got Star Wars, right? That's timeless. 

Goolz96 : I’m 22 and I’m already feeling this...

ChrisMCR : I'm only 31 and this has already happened to me, especially where music is concerned.

potaterjim : To date the simpsons most timeless quote.

DATo DATonian : As a kid the majority of the senior citizens I met wore a perpetual scowl on their faces and now that I am a senior myself I know why. I resent being herded by technology into a corral along with so many other people of my age like cows as a result of technological changes which seems to be advancing at an exponential rate. We old timers are being forced to abandon our old ways of doing things like the Indians were forced to give up their hunting grounds. Maybe it is for the best, and I know mankind must move forward, but I still resent it. Superman should still be allowed to jump into a phone booth to change into his Superman costume, but there are no longer any phone booths. I should still be allowed to wear my plaid, bell bottom pants without being ridiculed by teenagers with purple and orange hair and covered in tattoos and piercings. Where did these kids come from anyway? They look like a cross between Harpo Marx, a pincushion, and an exotic parrot. I do not want to talk to a recorded message when I call the doctor's office or any other place of business. I WANT TO TALK TO A HUMAN BEING! I resent having to push #1 if I want to know the status of my payment history, #2 if I want to hear the insurance plan options, #3 if ... etc, etc, etc. I'm getting old, I don't have the time left to put up with such shenanigans. Every minute is precious. When I was a kid if you bought something it came with a guarantee. If it doesn't work just bring it back. Go to any store and try to buy a washing machine and the salesman will immediately try to ~~~SELL~~~ you a warranty. With a big smile on his face he will say, "And for only $100 more you can buy a two year warranty which will protect your investment if the product proves defective." TRANSLATION: "This product is crap and it may not even last you two years." The refrigerator, washing machine, stove and oven my mother had when I was a kid lasted 40 years with no repairs necessary. Back then car bumpers and dashboard knobs were made of metal, soda and milk came in glass bottles, doctors actually came to your home if you were sick, you dreaded failing in school because you would have to repeat the entire year, parents gave a damn about how their children looked and acted when they went out in public and they made them do their homework before being allowed to play. Saturday morning cartoons were beautiful works of animated art - now they are non-animated pictures with only moving mouths. Rap "music"? I don't get the "music" part. To me it sounds like the classical poet, Alexander Pope, reciting is poetry while in the throes of crystal meth. "I remember when ..." --- remember that? Our elders used to say it all the time. NOW I'M SAYING IT ALL THE TIME! "I remember when" a Baby Ruth candy bar cost a nickel, now you can't get one for less than a dollar, and it doesn't taste like a candy bar anymore - it tastes like chocolate flavored wax. I do not want to have to order things online because I can no longer find these things in stores. Just look at any 15 month old toddler who comes into contact with something new: he looks at it, he taps it to see how strong it is, he puts in in his mouth to taste it. I want to do that too. I don't want to buy something sight-unseen. If I buy something I want to hold the object in my hands to evaluate it, to tap it against the wall to test its structural integrity, to stick it into my mouth to taste it if I want to, even if it is a shoe. I would be fascinated to learn the reaction of the men who lifted the American flag on Iwo Jima to know that in the last election America's "best?" choices for President of the United States, OUT OF 300 MILLION PEOPLE, were Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. And what about all this other political nonsense. You know, there's that line in the Star Spangled Banner ... "Oh say, does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave? o're the land of the free? and the home of the brave?" I used to know how to answer that question. Now I am confused. I do have one consolation however: the generation which created this technological, fashionable, marketing, political disaster will someday grow old too, and I can already imagine the sublime sound of their faces cracking in the formation of scowls.

James Campbell : This happened to me when I was 18.

Erich Damer : when 'it' changed what it was, it only changed its appearance so you couldn't recognize it anymore. Its core never really changed

Tony - Jmac : So true

Will Henderson : sums up MTV these days in a nut shell.

jessica C : Once the Baby Boomers and Gen X's pop their clogs we will have less people slagging off pop stars nowadays, 00s, 90s. That's British word for 'Kicked the bucket" ok.

mikedawgx01 : I'm a 28 year old otaku looking at the news section of Anime News Network going, "What the hell is all this crap?"

antonio titus : i was born 2 months before the simpsons and remember reaching Bart's age with excitement. That was fifteen years ago. When I reach homers age in 9 years I will be just as excited to see they are still standing strong.

Marc Baker : That explains the anger, and rage toward 'Thundercats Roar'.

Tyler Lamb : The generation gap...
