Generation X. If you grew up in the 1970s, 1980s, and early 1990s, you know just how cool it was to be a kid back then. We had the greatest music, movies, games, technology, and pop culture of any generation, and though we've grown older, we have refused to outgrow our love of everything GenX. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Generation X'ers who have refused to grow up!
