Shit You’ll Say When You’re 80 and Still Hardcore

Remember when your grandpa would tell you it only cost a quarter to see a “moving picture” when he was a teen? Or how he used to walk five miles a day just to get to school? Well, if we make it to that ripe old age, we’ll probably be saying kooky stuff, too. Here are some phrases you may find yourself groaning out in the nursing home, if you make it that far.

Back in my day you got a broken wrist just trying to get to the mosh pit!

Because old people always have to one up someone. And because, if you’re like me, you really are that accident prone.

I remember when Warped Tour tickets only cost $34!

As the beloved festival itself ages, its ticket prices increase. So is the way of the world. Let’s just hope it never reaches Coachella status.

I remember when there were only three “-cores”!

Nowadays there are already so many “-cores” that it can make you dizzy. We’ve already got crabcore and electronicore. Just imagine what ridiculousness the future holds!

When I was your age, we would actually go to shows instead of watching them on the Yahoo!

For Today

The live streaming phenomenon started appearing recently, but as we move further ahead with technology and farther away from the physical world, it might become common practice. But let’s be real, there’s no replacement for going to shows.

I remember when we used to buy records in stores!

A lot of people don’t even do this anymore, but there are still those fans that will go out and get the physical CD or vinyl. A few decades down the line when it’s all digital, those discs will be wondrous treasures to behold.

I remember when we could keep the caps on our water bottles at the venue!

You’re probably used to not being allowed to bring your own water bottle into venues, but recently, especially at festivals, when you buy a bottled drink the vendor will take the cap away from you. Supposedly it’s more dangerous with the cap on, but let me tell you, I got hit in the head with an uncapped Gatorade bottle last year and it didn’t make no goddamn difference. SO LET ME CLOSE MY DRINK!
