I think the bigger difference is adults get it now. I think in the past teenagers and young adults were the only ones that got it (I don't think Grandma knew what Shake, Rattle and Roll really meant). I just thank God my five year old doesn't know what she's singing about when she sings "You can blow whistle baby". That, and she prefers Taylor Swift to Katy Perry (for all the abuse Swift has taken on RZ she's pretty kid friendly).
