25 Albums GenXers Love that Millennials mostly know nothing about.

So in 2014 there was an article in Rolling Stone entitled 40 Albums Baby Boomers love that Millennials have never heard. I recently revisited that article and got to thinking. There are plenty of albums that us Gen Xers love that I bet most Millennials don’t know much, if anything about. So I compiled a list. Take a look and see how I did. If I missed something let me know and add it to the comments. And Millennials, if there is an album that most of you love and I underestimated you let me know that too. I am using just my knowledge of music to create this list so I am sure I will screw it up both ways. And the list is numbered but its not in any order.
