Is There a Statute of Limitations on "Those Kids and Their Noise"?

I'm in Starbucks, working away, and enjoying the Chuck Berry music they're playing. And an older woman -- not an insanely old woman -- comes in and starts shaking her head and making a lot of prune-faces and muttering disapproving "oh my" sounds about the music.

And it got me to thinking: Chuck Berry is eighty years old.

American Bandstand
and "Rock Around the Clock" came out more than fifty years ago.

At what point will the rock-haters kinda give up?

Are there still people standing in the middle of the street angrily waving buggy whips at cars??
