Are these things more Boomer or Millennial?

Stake your generational claim.

On the surface, Boomers and Millennials could not be more different. Boomers, those born during the “baby boom” after the Second World War, were raised in vastly different circumstances than Millennials, those born in the last 15-20 years of the 20th century.

However, their interests might not be so far apart. Obvious cultural and technological changes aside, there are many similarities. Millennials love all things retro like vinyl records, film photography and sixties fashion. But have they brought it back enough to claim it as their own?

Here are twelve things that could apply to either generation. Choose whether you think each one best applies to Boomers or Millennials. We’ll show you how popular your answers are in this poll.

As a young person I just want to say Vinyl is amazing. Though the best thing is when you go to a record store to find an original vinyl from a long time ago that's cheap with no scratches :)

I'm a boomer who still plays more vinyl at home than CD's. I'm glad that vinyl has made a comeback with millennials.

Wow. It doesn't look like Millennials have any kind of life at all!

Do you think you guys can try to remember that there are MILLIONS of Americans between the Boomers and Millennials? We’re GenX and most of us are still in our 40s. I know millennials and boomers are particularly self-absorbed, but stop pretending that we don’t exist.

Would you like to define how your interests & preferences are unique from either generation? 😉😉
Would you like to know that Gen Xers aren't a hoarde of narcissistic, egomaniacal, "IT'S ALL ABOUT MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" pains in the arse like the 2 generations we're bookended between? Don't like my reply? Then don't ask the question. 😉😉

83% similar. Don't know what was achieved. Doesn't seem to look good, though. Almost all the activities above lean toward boomers because the millennials can't afford those extortionate prices.
11. Definitely for New York Giants & Jets fans when watching their teams on Monday Night Football.

Vinyl records are actually more popular with the under 55 crowd. Boomers grew up with records, and buy into the myth that CDs sound better. Boomers listen to CDs, not vinyl.
