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.

Evel Knievel

If were a kid in the ’70s or ’80s and you ever built a little ramp in your back yard so you could do bicycle stunts, odds are pretty good you were inspired by the king of the daredevil stuntmen. In this Backtrack, we are taking an in-depth look at the life, career, and legacy of self-made death-defying superstar, the one & only, Evel Knievel!
