My Dad had never heard of The Velvet Underground when I mentioned them a few months ago which seemed so weird to me as he's a similar age to them.

My mum's friend went to see the Beatles during the whole Beatlemania phase and was videoed in a screaming-girls-running-down-a-corridor-to-be-near-the-beatles kind of shot for the news or a TV programme which was seen by her teachers who demoted her from being head girl cos it was viewed as so beyond the pale!
