9 music-related woes the kids of today will never understand

They’ll never understand the special relationship between pencils and cassette tapes.

1. They’ll never truly understand the pain of a skipping Walkman

Running and listening to music? Good luck to you.

2. They will never know the unique relationship that existed between pencils and cassette tapes

4. Or taping songs off the radio… and the DJ coming in before the end to interrupt

5. Or having to save your pocket money for weeks to be able to buy a CD in Golden Discs

Until you finally had the £20 to buy Whitney Houston’s Greatest Hits.

There was no Spotify in our day.

6. And don’t even talk to us about scratched CDs/vinyl

Nothing worse.


7. Or trying to burn a CD and finding that there wasn’t enough space :(

8. Or downloading crap versions of songs from Limewire or Kazaa

Kids today will never understand the frustration of downloading a song from Limewire and then finding out that the “song” you just downloaded was actually just audio of Bill Clinton saying, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.”

9. Finally, they will never know what a heartbreaking sight this is…

Warped vinyl.
