Back in 2012 when Paul McCartney performed on the Grammys, youngsters took to Twitter to express their confusion.  Here’s a selection of actual tweets:

  • “Who tf is Paul McCartney?…who is he? hella old, too.”
  • “I don’t know who Paul McCartney is.”
  • “Wait, who is Paul McCartney?”
  • “Who is this Paul McCartney guy?
  • “To be honest, I have no idea who Sir Paul McCartney is.”
  • “WHO IS THIS WHITE MAN?”
  • “Who the f**k is Paul McCartney?”
  • “Wait, who the f**k is this Paul McCartney dude?
  • “Who the hell is Paul McCartney #oldfart”
  • “Who the hell is Paul McCartney LMAO he is hella old!”
  • “I’m about to sound naive as f but who the hell is Paul McCartney? This songs sucks, btw.”

U2’s automatic delivery of Songs of Innocence to iTunes this week has prompted a similar outpouring.  I quote:

  • IDEK HOW THAT GOT THERE WHO TF IS U2
  • So am I the only one who phone got hack wtf is ah U2 and how tf did it get on my phone in my music
  • Wtf is U2 ? I never put this bullshit on my phone. Hell na who did this ?
