In my column today I talked about the broad-brush accusations hurled at my generation: that we are disobedient, disrespectful oafs, as well as noisy, crazy, sloppy, lazy loafers.

If these charges sound familiar, it’s because they’ve all been made before, five decades ago. Back then they targeted an earlier generation of punks, and happened to be set to music. Enjoy.
