    Having discussion with my daughter - half jokingly, but still, a discussion.

    Albums come up and she says 'Thats a classic' and I say 'no.'.

    What makes it a classic, as an example:

    Red Hot Chili Peppers - To her, she says 'Californication' is a classic, but I say 'no' and say Mothers Milk or Blood Sugar Sex Magik is.

    Does it matter on the age? Is she right? Am I? Neither of us?

    no tears left to cry Prestigious

    I think Classic is a subjective/personal concept, I don't know if there's a cut off for how old it has to be

    I started googling things, and sure, its subjective, I know....

    But I guess a classic to one person may not be a classic to me... I suppose with enough hits on it, and an album you never get sick of hearing from start to finish, well, classified.
