: : While it is a fairly recent term, I was wondering who coined the phrase?

: I found this if it's of any use
: A 1960s English paperback about sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll in the London mod scene.

: also check the archive on this site for some more details.

This definitively will be of no use whatsoever, but as an idle aside, Generation X was the name chosen by Billy Idol (of "With A Rebel Yell" and "White Wedding" fame) for his appallingly bad nascent UK punk band before he went solo. I only remember one single release, which is, trust me, a major blessing.
