They've been alive for 47 albums of "Now That's What I Call Music" ( I can remember getting the first one for Christmas!)
The Backstreet Boys and NSYNC have been bands longer than they've been alive!
The songs "Waterfalls" by TLC and "All Star" by Smash Mouth is older than they are!
Beanie Babies have never been a gold mine

If you say "You sound like a broken record," chances are they don't understand the meaning!
YIKES! What would you add to the list?
