A term used to ridicule people who believe they were "born in the wrong generation" just because they listen to classic rock, play old video games, watch television shows/movies released before they were born and wear clothing worn in past decades. They bemoan the generation they live in, stereotyping everyone in it as rude, narcissistic, smartphone-addicted, EDM-loving clowns, while claiming that the "good old days" were far better.

"Le wrong generation" people actually think they are superior for preferring things made before their time, despite the fact that everyone on Earth enjoys things from decades ago and that every decade has low points. They display hypocrisy by stating that they'd rather have grown up in the 50s, 60s, 70s, etc. before the rapid advancement of modern tech, yet rely on YouTube for the music they listen to and social media for submitting their views.

This group of people also includes "90s kids", i.e. people who spent much of their childhood in the 1990s. These guys whine on and on about how better their childhoods were in comparison to the ongoing childhoods of today's kids, recycling the same example over and over: "We actually played outside! We used our imaginations!" Again this is hypocrisy, as many kids of the 1990s stayed inside to watch TV and play video games, while today's kids DO still play outside. We just don't notice them because we're older and no longer hanging around the playgrounds that kids play in.
"I hate my generation. I wish I was born in the late 50s, so I could grow up with The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Queen. Back when music was actually good."
"Dude... check out Porcupine Tree and Muse. They both kick ass."
"Nah, they probably suck bro, all the best music was back in the good old days. Why can't today's musicians make music like that? Music died when Kurt Cobain died! Now all we have is Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, One Direction, Nicki Minaj and Kanye West!"
"Looks like you were born in le wrong generation."

"I wish I lived in a time before technology."
"So you'd rather cook a meal over a fire?"
"No, I mean computers and social media, back when people actually talked to each other."
"Then why are you on Facebook?!"

"Today's kids suck! When I was a kid I played outside in the rain and used my imagination. All of today's kids just play video games."
"What about the PlayStation 1 and Nintendo 64?"
"...Well yeah, but we weren't addicted to them! Not like today's kids!"
