    It is for marketing purposes so that they may be targeted and manipulated. What was once 'cool' is now has a derogatory connotation in the mind of the young who are soon to become old themselves.

  • The marketing always fails on me. I'm 31 so I'm technically a millennial or the former generation y or generation why? I wear a feathered mullet and blast late 80's and early 90's hair metal and soft rock out of my 1992 Chevrolet Camaro. How the **** are they going to market anything to me when I hate Nirvana, grunge, and all hipster inspired fashion?

    Why not? I mean every generation had different events that took place in that era ect. I was born in 93 that would make me a millennial.

    There really isn't a mathematical point.  There is value to marketers in generational classifications perhaps.
