Every generation has its own style, nostalgic memories, music and memes they can strongly relate to. Generation X are a special bunch of folks who are possibly parents to the millennials and Gen Z kids now. Gen X was raised by the so-called Boomer generation and they have gone through several changes in their lifetimes. Gone are the days when GenX used to rent DVDs from Blockbuster and the times when they had to hold onto their patience, just to create a perfect mixtape from radio channels.

This generation was particularly good at being resourceful, independent and had a grip on their work-life balance, unlike the younger generation. They were the first ones to grow up with personal computers and were more ethnically diverse than boomers. This time, we have stumbled upon a Facebook page called Righteous Memes from Generation X which is dedicated to the bygone era and everything that people born roughly between 1965 to 1980 can relate to. These Gen X memes can prove to be incredibly funny and relatable for anyone as long as they know the cultural context of the 60s, 70s and 80s.
