Sir: I was dismayed to read that, at 29, I will soon be too old to appreciate popular culture and music, as the tracks chosen as "anthems of the year" by Radio 1 listeners are unlikely to mean anything to "anyone over 30" ("Massive Attack sees off old guard", 29 December). I needn't have worried. Reading on, I was relieved to discover that most of those who made the list were about my age (Oasis, Radiohead, Nirvana), while some were positively vintage (REM and Madonna). So I can delay that trip to Littlewoods for my elasticated jeans for a few years.
