Golden Oldies

How much longer will we have to wait for Dr. Dre's "The Chronic" to be considered a golden oldie? I guess it'll be at least a few more years, but in the meantime it will have to work its way through the other categories. Before too long it will be considered Classic Rap, kind of like Classic Rock but for Gen X. Easy E, Public Enemy, and I'm sad to report, Coolio and the Fresh Prince will get lumped into this group on Classic Rap radio stations. Classic Rock will have to change quite a bit as well. Instead of the Eagles and Joe Cocker, we'll hear Danzig and Nirvana. The generation of kids who have to grow up riding around in the backseat listening to Public Enemy and Danzig are going to have some strange ideas about the world but at least they'll be a lot cooler.
