Being so fond of this music myself, and so little enamored of most of what gets put out these days, I really like the idea of younger people discovering this and going "wow!" ... but there's a lot of this (I've seen a dozen or so youtube channels of someone young who generallly listens to hip hop going all ecstatic over Pink Floyd) and part of me, the suspicious cynical part, wonders if this is for real or if they're somehow having us on? It's not like these songs are so rarely played that a person would grow up completely unexposed to them (is it?).

My own experiences with people who only listen to top 40 pop is that they're no more impressed with classic rock than the kids in my sixth grade class were with symphonic classical when I tried to turn them on to it.

Any chance they're testing our credulity and laughing at us for biting?
