Gold Medalist Born In 2000 Tries To Name '90s Songs, Makes Us All Feel Old

"I don't know any of these songs."

We've already seen teenagers try to identify songs from the 1990s, but none of them were Olympic gold medalists. Luckily, Buzzfeed News' morning show AM to DM was on the case, asking 17-year-old Redmond "Red" Gerard to react to a handful of music videos released in the '90s and early 2000s.


Gerard, who was born in 2000, recently earned the first gold medal for Team USA at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, for the men's snowboarding slopestyle event. However, when it comes to identifying songs by TLC, Alanis Morissette, and Ricky Martin, Gerard doesn't even earn bronze — unless the point of the game is to make us all feel very old.

"I don't know any of these songs," Gerard says at one point in the video, having been shown clips from "No Scrubs," "Gangsta's Paradise," and "Ironic." He's able to identify Blink-182 upon hearing "What's My Age Again," but when asked if he ever listens to them, he answers that he does "as a joke sometimes."

He can't even identify Christina Aguilera in the "Lady Marmalade" music video, instead calling her "some girl with real fluffy hair." Find out what other iconic jams totally mystify him in the video above, and try not to take it too personally.
