A coworker referred to wutang as "dad music" the other day, and I've been absolutely furious since.


@slipperywerm when I was teaching some of the kids referred to it as “the music we play at cookouts” which is such a cutting insight and also a low key burn

@LuigiEsq @slipperywerm Cookout music isn't necessarily a slight, though. Murder She Wrote, Bam Bam, and Return of the Mack were all cookout songs in my childhood and all are bops

@steviemcfly @slipperywerm very true, but a lot of dad rock also rules. feel like it doesn’t sting any less for the older folks to realize their music is now dad rock/cookout music lol

@slipperywerm @LuigiEsq @steviemcfly Wu Tang is for the children, they teach the children. What other group does this?

@LuigiEsq @slipperywerm Fair. I will, say, though, that I've seen more kids today that aren't super into a specific genre getting into older music than I used to see. Like my nieces like a bunch of '70s/'80s/'90s stuff on top of the current things, but I remember when my cousin was in his late teens or early twenties he said Wu Tang was too old for him to listen to (an opinion which has since changed, but)
