You have to grow older, but you don't have to grow up...

We're Generation X'ers who spent our childhood immersed in the music, movies, games, and pop culture of the 70s, 80s, & 90s, and all that stuff shaped who we are today as adults. GenXGrownUp looks at yesterday and today through the eyes of Gen X'ers who refuse to grow up.

Backtrack: Oingo Boingo & Danny Elfman

Oingo Boingo. If you’re a GenX’er, that name probably brings up memories of Dead Man’s Party in Back to School or the title track for Weird Science. The band, with frontman Danny Elfman, made an ’80s sound that was fun, different, and decidedly cool. We take a look back on Oingo Boingo, Danny Elfman, and the amazing music they’ve produced!
