I will review the physics behind the general purpose event generators used by the LHC experiments (Herwig/++, Pythia 6/8 and Sherpa) concentrating on areas of recent development: matching to higher order/high multiplicity matrix elements, parton shower effects beyond leading colour, and underlying event/minimum bias models.
