Why would you want to fit in to a particular generation?
As far as the cultural things go, I was pretty much a nerd in Middle School/Hight School and never got into the fads of the time.
According to wikipedia, I am generation X.

Also according to wikipedia, I am often considered as part of Generation Y (or the Millennial Generation or the Echo Boomers)Generation X, commonly abbreviated to Gen X, is the generation born after the baby boom ended, ranging from 1961 to 1981

So my birth date does not put me squarely in Gen X or Gen Y.As there are no precise dates for when the Millennial generation starts and ends, commentators have used birth dates ranging somewhere from the mid 1970s to the early 2000s.
I kinda like that.
Kurt Cobain or Lady Gaga? Not sure I identify with either. If I were absolutely forced to choose, I would pick Lady Gaga.
As far as being media tech savvy, I am in a way, but not in others.
I do not text. I don't twitter. I am barely on facebook.
Politically, the language of neoliberalism does pervade my thinking. So that makes me somewhat of a Millennial.
If I had a choice, I would choose to be part of the Millennials, because they seem to have more potential for good in the world. Gen X'ers seem more jaded about what is possible than I like.
Still, in the U.S., most studies would place me in the Gen X cohort.
