They may have heard them, they may have a vast number of "essential" mp3's of them (or the Monkees, thinking it was the beatles), but are they outward fans and do they outwardly like them enough to step out from the highschool "production line"? In my opinion, I don't think so ...but it would be important to hear this from someone who currently is in highschool (which none of us are).
I remember blowing one week's pay (when I was like, 17) to get the 30th Anniversary White Album on the first day it came out. Unfortunately I also remember being the only one to promote this great event among my friends and peers, and the only one who actually GOT the CD (at least on the first day). And yes, some people were looking at me and saying "so"? "who cares"?
