The implication here is that when young viewers who come across older, established, and even legendary artists that have been posted on youtube.com; they don't really get the concept, and just think of them as any other "youtuber". When they see the high level of artistry, skill and "depth" that these great artists exhibit in relation to the webcam videos posted by young people who are mainly singing in their bedrooms; their limited experience leads them to believe that those "baby boomers" are really bringing their A-game when it comes to creating home made youtube clips. Younger Youtubers will need to improve their efforts if they hope to match the skill of those older posters, and stop getting their asses kicked.
- An alternative explanation
The 1960s and 70s were an interesting period for popular music. Many new sub-genres were developed, such as psychedelic rock, heavy metal, punk rock, county (or southern) rock and blues rock. Not only that, the artists from that era tend to remain the outstanding exemplars of these types of music, leaving one with the impression that those artists were rock and roll geniuses and later artists are talentless hacks by comparison.
That is to say, for every outstanding Generation X or Y musician (e.g., Nirvana), there are ten outstanding Baby Boomer musicians (e.g., The Who, The Doors, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Grateful Dead). This is not necessarily true, but it is true that many of the outstanding musicians of the baby boomers' generation remain popular and influential, while few musicians from later eras do.
The title text refers either to Lim Jeong-hyun or a young French guitarist named Mattrach , both of whom are widely known for excellent speed-metal versions of Pachelbel's Canon. The implication is that in order to compete artistically with the baby boomers, younger people need to support talented musicians from their own generation.
