Three decades of alternative rock, from Nirvana to the Naked and Famous, and everything in between.

The Modern GenX celebrates over three decades of alternative rock music, from Nirvana to the Naked and Famous, and everything in between. The revolution that began in the 90's, with music that defied genres and crossed over into diverse listening tastes, continues today. Check out some of the best new alt rocks songs, revisit your favorites, and discover some things you missed.

To make it easier for your automation, starting with the 2020-05-04 show is 58 minutes long, divided into two blocks so you can drop something in the bottom of the hour (-ish). Starting with 2020-08-24, that break is gone, but you can split around that time if you want. Feel free to edit as desired.
