* '''Zig Zagged''': Bob gushes to Dave how much better the music was back in his day...then admits to Mike that some of it wasn't ''that'' great. But when he meets Mike, he's back to gushing about how oh-so-much better the 1970s were, even though [[ViewersAreMorons Mike]] [[AvertedTrope Isn't a Moron]], remembered the previous conversation, and calls out Bob. He succeeds in shutting Bob up, for the moment.

Added DiffLines:

** Some of the artists that Bob loved in his youth are still around and rockin' but obviously ageing. They have also updated themselves for each new generation of fans, while also attempting to appeal to nostalgic older fans. On one hand, Bob may have something to introduce his kids to (if they can get around the fact that these artists are probably older than their dad). On the other hand, Bob may be of the opinion that these artists lost something by staying around too long, just knowing that their advancing age now prohibits or makes improbable a lot of their earlier antics.

* '''Deconstructed''': Bob fears the end of his youth and his encroaching old age, and expresses this by lashing out at everything which is modern and which has changed from his youth. All this does is make him bitter and further isolate him from the people around him.
