Talking with Teens (aka Older Than a Rock Band)

The other day after I picked the girls up from school we were on our way home, this was the conversation overheard in the car. I have to share it, because it still cracks me up.

Marissa: “Have you heard that ‘Shut Up’ song on the radio? They’re playing it all the time now.”

Rebekah: “Yeah, that’s the band that was at the Rock & Worship RoadshowAnthem Lights.”

Marissa: ” I like that song.”

Rebekah: “Yeah. They’re kind of like an old ‘Big Time Rush’.” (click the link for translation…I knew what they meant.)

Marissa and I: (laughs)

Me: “I was impressed that they all sang, not just one lead singer, and that their lyrics were scripturally deep.”

(pause of silence…then conversation continues as if I hadn’t said anything)

Marissa: “How old were they? Like Toby Mac old, or RelientK old?”

Rebekah: “RelientK doesn’t sound old! Anthem Lights is just old.”

Marissa: “Yeah, but how old. As old as Toby Mac?”

Rebekah: “No, more like RelientK, but Anthem Lights doesn’t sound old either.”

Me: “Guys, you know I’m still in the car, right? And I’m older than the guys in Anthem Lights.”

  1. think Anthem Lights. The band members are all in their early twenties, but I don’t know specific ages for two fo them. One said he was 2 in the 80s so that maeks him now turning 23 and one just turned 23 cause he said his birthday just passed
