TIME Asks Teens The Same Questions Their 1965 Counterparts Answered -- Here's What Hasn't Changed

Fifty years ago, TIME magazine released its cover story where they profiled a group of teens, asking them questions on everything from music to drinking. This year, the magazine posed teens the same questions -- and their answers probably won't surprise you.

As the teens read excerpts from the original 1965 story, they giggled about the pelvic thrusting involved with the popular dance "The Jerk" and compared it to today's twerking. For music, one teen said she still listened to The Beatles, while others gave examples of their favorite artists like The Arctic Monkeys.

The group also opened up about new opportunities like college as well as the effects of technology.

"Taking selfies, posting stuff about what you're doing -- we have different portals that allow us to be more selfish," one teen said.

Though older generations might think better resources gives younger people an advantage, the teens agreed that new technology comes with more responsibility.

"Those pressures don't allow us to connect with older generations," one teen said. "It's hard for you to interpret it because you believe that we have it easier."

A lot has changed in 50 years, but it's still hard out there for a teen.
