Much better to think of it as "classic."

This is like when music from when I was in high school comes on the Classic Rock station. I'm not sure "classic" makes it that much better in this case.

After ”classic” comes “oldies.”

When my mom passed away my son Charles ended up with her car, which is now a theoretical "classic". Not sure that enhances its value or desirability any. It's a '97 Saturn.

When I was in college I preferred the 60s music of my high school years to whatever came up in the 70s (which I like just fine now; the stuff before the disco era), and listened to the Oldies station on the radio. Back then the Oldies were only 5-10 years behind.

Even worse might be “Golden Oldies”

The idea that Cristina's high school music is classic rock is indeed an inevitable bit of depressing news. (Someday we'll laugh about this when that's true of Lukas's high school music.)

To be fair I don't think too many songs that came out when I was in high school make the classic rock stations, but certainly a lot of songs do that are from slightly earlier and were still big in HS (and not considered "classics" yet). The most surprising has been Smells Like Teen Spirit.

New one today. My trumpet straight mute was called "vintage" by a graduate student. I bought it, at the earliest, in high school.

More than once I've had people comment on how cool it is to see somebody riding a vintage bike, and my internal voice was saying, "but, this is my new bike".
