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.

Celebrity Charity Events

Back in the 80's Bob Geldof, a singer and activist started Band Aid to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia. Whether it was intentional or not, that started a wave of celebrity activism that raised millions for various causes and created a few number-one music hits as well. In this Backtrack, we take a look at some of the great work done and remember what it felt like to see it unfold live.
