poor choices, surely they should've looked for the bands with the most ridiculous hipster qualities (style, name & sound) as opposed to bands embraced by Hipsters... that'd be a fun article. As it is it's just a list debunking lots of obscure guitar bands.
Some of those bands are ace - Grizzly Bear, Interpol and Bright Eyes.
Also you have some strange choices - Stone Roses ?? Reverend and the Makers ??? The Enemy ?!?!
I agree with Aerial Pink's BUT you should have included The Dirty Projectors..........
to generate views. most of the bands they are slagging they admit to praising elsewhere on their site.
is our generation's disco sucks sort of movement.
Not that I don't find the fashiony hipsters completely ridiculous but dunno if it's that far away from lager swilling fratboys who listen to brostep sneering at music they deem more effeminate.
Also obvious troll is obvious, though the MGMT attack did annoy me cos not a target really anymore and that second album is way better than the ultimately pretty shallow first album
Also the fact that the word, along with "pretentious", seems now to used largely to refer derisively to people who happen to like things.
So weak, every one of those bands are way too big to be considered hipster
Some of those bands I really don't like
Some idiot is trying to think he's funny
Other idiots are getting too worked up over it
The world spins

Quite a lot of bland indie sacred-cows killed in this list. Writer tries a bit too hard, but a lot of good shots there.
yeah but they are all just big indie bands, unless hipster now just means any indie band then they have massively missed the mark, surely if hipster is going to be used as a criticism it should be applied to stuff that has little merit and is just championed for obscurity/newness
yeah, I'm not even going to read this. I mean, I will, but officially I'm going to disregard it totally.
I just thought...the guy's username...nevermind.
It offers nothing, you don't even define what you mean by hipster. It isn't funny or interesting, it doesn't offer any insight or point of view. I can't believe how many people it took to write this, and how many comments it attracted. All those bands have infinite more value than you
yeah i'd say they pretty much got all the bands that i'd consider hipster in there. Except polica. They needed to include polica.
The most hipster band is The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Those fuckers are worse than the Holocaust
Holocaust reference, classy.
It's just a very poor/overused insult.
writing about the 'emperor's new colthes' bands they dislike? Why does that justify a whole article?
hatred for those multiclick list bullshit articles.
PAGINATION MUST DIE!
How is that hipster? The Black Keys headlined Coachella for fucks sake.
A wash of down-tuned Baltimore neo-soul, it's trip-hop for people who never knew Massive Attack and post-rock for those who missed Stereolab; in other words, derivative electro mush. The band's moniker is also misleading. As Linda Richman might say, they're neither about beaches nor house music.
A list of 20 bands most of which no self discerning (haha) Hipster would be caught dead listening to on his vintage 1986 Walkman. Death Cab for Cutie?! Arcade Fire?! Bon Fucking Iver?!
Quick Hint: if it's won a Grammy, it ain't Hipster.
These people have no fucking idea what they're writing about. I don't even know why the article exists. I don't even...
I see what you did there.
