: 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 once danced with Billy Idol in a New York Club in the 80's. It was unpleasant.
