They performed at the music festival in Opatija and won the "Best Use of Folk Music Elements" Award. In October Rašić left the band, and was replaced by a former Zebra member Goran Milošević (brother of female rock singer Slađana Milošević), with whom the band moved towards more commercial sound. In November, they released their third 7" single Umoran od svega / Ti samo budi dovoljno daleko. At the time, their music was used in Zoran Čalić's movie "Došlo doba da se ljubav proba". After the Umoran od svega / Ti samo budi dovoljno daleko single release, the band started experimenting with jazz rock and soon gained a loyal fan-base.
The critics, however, criticized the band for their lyrics and the fact that some of their biggest hits were written by the authors outside the band (most notably Bora Đorđević and Kornelije Kovač). They released their debut album, Generacija 5 (produced by Josip Boček) in 1980. Their second album, Dubler, produced by Peter Taggart, released in 1982, was preceded by one more 7" single, Spakuj se, požuri / Samo laži. In June of the same year Generacija 5 disbanded. After the disbandment, Ilić became a Radio Television Belgrade editor. During the 1980s he worked with Željko Bebek, Slađana Milošević and others, and in 1985 he wrote the song Za milion godina recorded by YU Rock Misija.] Đorđević moved to the United States of America, Jovanović became a studio musician and Milošević joined the band "Mama Co Co". The band reunited in 1992.
Besides Ilić, Jovanović and Stojisavljević, the band's new lineup featured the singer and actor Đorđe David Nikolić and a former "Čutura i Oblaci", drummer Zoran Radovanović. In 1994, the band released the compilation album Najjači ostaju ('78 - '94), which featured their old hits, an unplugged version of Ti samo budi dovoljno daleko and two new songs, Najjači ostaju and Povedi me u noć. Their comeback album, Svet je tvoj, was recorded in Belgrade and Los Angeles. In Belgrade they worked with a former Warriors member Dragan Deletić and in Los Angeles they were joined by their former member Slobodan Đorđević.
The song Nosi je košava featured lyrics written by the deceased Nenad Radulović, a former Poslednja Igra Leptira frontman. Album featured Baby Q Ball, Maja Odžaklijevska, Lana Toković and Ljuba Dimitrijević as guest musicians. The album also featured recordings from Generacija 5 unplugged concert held in Television Belgrade Studio 9 in 1995 as bonus tracks. During their staying in Los Angeles the band performed at the "Roxy Theatre". At the beginning of 2000, Đorđe David was excluded from the band.
Dragan Panjak became the band's new voclaist. He recorded only one song with the band, the ballad Pomoli se još jednom, which was released on the compilation album "Pomoli se još jednom... i druge balade" in 2000. In 2002, the band released the album Unplugged & Live, which featured the recordings from the Television Belgrade Studio 9 uplugged concert. The album also featured an unplugged cover of Time song Istina mašina. The band released their latest studio album Energija, produced by Saša Habić, in 2006.
The album featured, besides Ilić, Krstić and Stojisavljević, Slobodan Đorđević on drums, and, as a guest, former Smak vocalist Dejan Najdanović Najda on vocals. After the album release, Najdanović continued to perform with the band, not becoming an official band member. On June 8, 2011, Ilić performed as the keyboardist on Sting concert in Belgrade Arena.
