I remember Henry Rollins also saying something about the generation that would be more hardcore than both their parents and children.

Mind you, I'm old enough that a year ago or so, I initially knew Justin Bieber was a celeb, but needed to be told he was a pop singer. I still don't think I've heard any of his songs, nor would I recognise him from a pic unless it was captioned. I mean, I've seen pictures of him, but within minutes I've erased it from my mind.
True enough that pop stars/youngsters doing all this stuff is so "normal" now, I'm more surprised when I find out someone is straight edge or whatever.
