Generation X (later known as Gen X) were an English punk rock/post punk band from London in the late 1970s, primarily remembered today for being the musical starting point of the career of its frontman/vocalist, Billy Idol.
Generation X were way ahead of their time. Oddly, they were often mocked in the media for being a group of good looking guys who could actually play their instruments. The songs are very solid and for that this album should be in EVERY punk collection. Billy Idol and Tony James were a great writing team and Bob Derwood Andrews provided great guitar work while Mark Laff kept a rocking drum beat. This is where things get a little confusing, the band ~DID~ release a 3rd album, but it wasn't Sweet Revenge by the original line-up. Billy Idol and Tony James were still a team but they began recording with Steve Jones (of the Sex Pistols) and Terry Chimes (of the Clash) and others. THAT version of the band released an album titled "Kiss me Deadly" which is good but has a very different sound.

Generation X released their first album in March 1978. The backlash began before Generation X had even put out their first album. Although the London group played fast and loud, they also had a knack for melody, and some of punk’s bands and fans weren’t certain that Generation X were the real thing. Yet the band had punk credentials – singer Billy Idol had been part of the Sex Pistols-backing "Bromley Contingent" and bassist Tony James had played with the Clash’s Mick Jones in the London .
Generation X managed to squeeze out one final album, 1981's Kiss Me Deadly (which contained the original version of a song that Idol would later cover as a solo artist and score a massive hit with, "Dancing With Myself"), before splitting up. After the group's breakup, James later turned up as a member of '80s glam-punkers Sigue Sigue Sputnik, while Idol relocated to New York and embarked on his aforementioned solo career
