Another term for the Presidents

Know how easy it is to start a generational divide?

Just fan the kindling fires of ’90s nostalgia by proclaiming to the teen in your house, “You know why the ’90s were better? Because you’ll never hear 5 Seconds of Summer singing, ‘Peaches come from a can, they were put there by a man.’ ”

If your teens don’t tell you that you’re grounded for a week, head to the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay on Saturday for another term with the Presidents of the United States of America.

Although synonymous with the Clinton administration, the wry pop-punkers, fronted by sharp-dressed Chris Ballew, proved adaptable to modern times.

This year’s album “Kudos to You!” was crowd-funded, making it possible for fans to hear catchy new tunes such as “Crappy Ghost” and “Electric Spider” alongside such favorites as “Lump” and “Peaches.”
