How genuine were the radical hopes expressed by the people who made up the baby boom generation? And how did a generation that loved to the songs of Johnny Mathis and rebelled to the sounds of "The Velvet Underground" come to embrace the insipid music and fundamental dishonesty of Milli Vanilli? "Hipper than our Kids" provides an irreverent, but honest, personal answer. Based in part on interviews with key performers and entrepreneurs, the book describes how rock and roll transformed itself from an experimental form of music into an entertainment commodity.
