Elders React To Skrillex And Dubstep Music, Are Mostly Horrified (VIDEO)

WATCH: Older People React To Skrillex

It's a tale as old as time: The kids discover a new genre of music, and the older generations just don't get it. From rock and roll to hip hop, the music blowing up the charts often just doesn't register when it enters the ear holes of senior citizens.

And dubstep is no exception. The bass-heavy, robotic-sounding dance music popularized most notably by the artist Skrillex is an unmistakably visceral experience, and its popularity is baffling to many fans accustomed to more traditional pop music.

In this video, The Fine Brothers, who are behind the "Elders React" series, play three Skrillex tracks -- "First Of The Year (Equinox)," "Bangarang," and "Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites" -- to some members of the 50-and-up crowd. Their reaction is about what you may think: that it sounds "like a monster" and that it's "not exactly Sinatra." Although plenty of them are equally as delightfully bemused as baffled.

Do you feel the same way about dubstep, or is this just another instance of tastes evolving by generation? Let us know in the comments!
