Guitar riff-rock that hits you like a Mack truck and lyrics that are chock full of attitude,
Me Generation showcases the more alternative punk-rock influence of Roxie’s 10-song solo debut ‘Imagine Your Reality’.
A 180 degree flip on the kids vs. adult rant songs that usually accuse the ol-skool generations of being too tame, too boring, and too…..well, old.
This time around, Roxie flips the script and goads the younger generation to take a quick screen-shot of just how coddled life has become growing up in a safety bubble nestled up in ‘the cloud’.
Me Generation challenges the youth to ‘get off their ass and jam’ and to PLEASE ‘step away from the technology.’…unless of course you are watching the video or listening to the song on your iPhone….then by all means, carry on young padawans, carry on.
Oh, what interesting times we live in. – review by J.J. King
Me Generation was produced by Alice Cooper band mate Tommy Henriksen.
Roxie and Tommy recorded the guitars & vocals in hotel rooms across the mid-west United States, laid the drums down with Glen Sobel (also in Coopers band) in Los Angeles, then mixed the final track in Zurich, Switzerland. A truly international affair.
Me Generation is the 4th song released off of the ‘Imagine Your Reality’ album. To Live and Die in L.A. , Over and Done, and the summertime classic California Man can all be checked out on YouTube – and/or Spotify.
