Generation Riff

Your Home For 90s Music & Culture

Generation Riff was created with you, the reader and 90s music lover in mind. If you're part of the Gen X crew like I am, chances are you grew up listening to punk rock, grunge, alternative, and hip-hop. This music defined us and created a brand new culture around the music. Generation Riff is here to discuss those times in detail via blogs, articles, videos, interviews, podcasts, and a book.

Slacker: 1991, Teen Spirit Angst, and the Generation it Created (Inspired by You Books) due early 2024. Sign up for your signed, limited 1st print run edition here

Let's bring the past back to life and relive the times, moments, and music that defined us then, and led us to become the people we are now.
