"Igeneration" as written by Andrew R. Nielsen, Damondrick Jack and Piebald,....
Nd people tried to put us down, when iTunes bumped a post-Cold War sound.
My generation sat the mecca of malls, Times Square, I'm there, Viacom installs.
So we hit the net while the Trade Center fell, New York met Hollywood, we ran like hell.
No Vietnam for us, yo, Iraq it's on. So who agree upon this cowboy Genghis Khan?
The choice made, baby. Hey we'd take it back, logged in dropped out, MTV took track.
They sold it back to us and claimed no correlation. The iMac, iPod, iGeneration.
And I'm waiting for the day we can get out. The world is ours, that's the story no doubt.
Want to be more info super highway traffic, want to be more than a walking demographic!

"Hey! You're part of it." Talking about the iGeneration.
"Yeah! You're part of it." Talking about my iGeneration.

See the iGeneration knew organization meant optimization and unification,
When imagination gave participation in creation of culture a manifestation.
The Berlin Wall fell and out we came, the post-Cold War kids laid claim to AIM.
LOL, OMG, yo, BRB. Space, colon, dash, closed parenthesis.
We sat at our laptops and typed away, and found that we each had something to say.
Web-logged our fears, our hopes and dreams. Individuated by digital means.
Fiber optic lenses, DVD, Coca Cola, Disney and Mickey D's.
Flat mass culture, the norm that took holdÉ I hope I die before I get sold.


This is the I-N-T-E-are-N-E-T ge-na-ra-tion, see?
This is the I-N-T-E-are-N-E-T ge-na-ra-tion, see?

    General CommentI find it extremely ironic that I first heard this song over the internet, downloaded it on LimeWire, and then proceeded to post a comment here about it.

    General Commentanyone else think it's kind of odd we're sitting here discussing his song over the internet... while he's singing about how we're all getting sucked into the internet..

    General CommentSo many songs have described our parents' generation beautifully. Maybe our generation really sucks, but I think we can do better than "rapping" a laundry list of brand names and buzzwords from the news.

    Hot Topic is not punk rock, and MC Lars is not The Who.

    General Commentzenia, couldn't have said it better myself. this song is in no way what i would consider "good", but i honestly do think it is an interesting idea. maybe someone will use the idea but actually have it mean something (not just list brands and buzzwords like zenia said).
