I dropped my wife and kid off at Seatac this afternoon and went to the Tukwila Barnes and Noble to have a cup of Starbucks and use their free wifi until the flight left.

I was surprised to learn today that there are hipsters in Tukwila.

So all popular music is crap and liking anything obscure makes you a hipster. What does fark want people to listen to?

I have never met a hipster that claims the Beatles were an overrated band that co uld name three songs off the "white album". Anyone who says the Beatles are overrated had the knows less about
music Justin Beiber* does about pleasing women.

#3 Listening to obscure genres are fun, but if you get stuck on one, you're a farking douche. (Loves me some Galician bagpipes). Britney Spears/Lady Gaga/Whoever the new pop diva is really does suck.
#2 See R.E.M., U2 and Green Day as examples. There is some validity to that argument, but not necessarily true.

Ok I agree with you on the first part, but there was a time when Fark hated popular music that involved autotune. Now they hate anything that becomes popular. Also not all metal is corny, there is a lot of good bands out there like Testament, Mastodon, Opeth, Gorjia, Cynic, and that is just naming a few. Basically every type of genre of music has good musicians, but a lot of shiatty ones.

Ok, and I still agree with you. I guess the big thing is a band that is popular sucks, because they are popular, or you just think they suck, because now mainstream likes what you like. A lot of people hate bands that become popular, because they are sellouts. Pretty much anyone that uses autotune to cover up that they can't sing, imo can suck it.

I think the only time I've really seen Tame Impala discussed in-depth was a link that I submitted that was shockingly greenlit. Some liked it, some dismissed it for not-all-that-different classic rock acts.

Personally, I like them, but Innerspeaker really wasn't that great. It had some great tracks, but too much filler. I'm still looking forward to their new album, thoug.
 
2012-08-26 07:07:33 PM  
A good Cracked list? On my Fark? What the... um, fark?

#4- "There Is No Good Music Anymore" -yep, spot on. It's easier to find music you like than ever. Hell, stuff like Slacker and Songza do the work for you now with the whole bookmarking stuff you like thing, and even if you just want to stick to your guns and listen to your own collection you've got Google Music/iTunes/Music Unlimited/etc.

#3- "I Only Listen To (Insert Obscure Genre Here)"- cretinbob hit the nail here. Sticking to one super-obscure genre and proceeding to tell everybody about it is just douchy. Discovering the stuff, on the other hand, is fun as hell.

#2- "I Liked Them Until They Got Popular" - I don't think this happens as often as people say it does- if anything, it's probably the exception- but there are bands who go straight downhill after signing the big contract Albert Haynesworth-style. To the author's point, Green Day got terrible after they became popular, but they were also terrible before it, too. I grew up on the band (there's nothing a 10-year-old suburban white kid identifies with quite like Basket Case), but outside of the odd track here or there (Jaded/Brain Stew, Hitchin' a Ride) I can't stand them anymore.

#1. "American Idol Ruined Everything"- The article was right on this, too. Previous generations had American Bandstand, Casey Kasem's Top 40, etc. and more limited access to different types of music, and it's not like executives weren't finding no-talent ass clowns and propping them up to make a buck back in the day, either.

/Fark putting four things on two pages though.
 
2012-08-26 07:08:08 PM  
I used to hate hearing people say "All music today sucks!!!" Then I realized something:

I hated the parodies on the last two Weird Al albums, but loved the original stuff. I even had to read the album notes to find out which ones were the actual parodies and what songs were parodied. Then I realized that I only listened to the radio when I was in my car, and it was either on NPR, the station that plays songs from the 70s through the 90s, and Dave Ramsey. So I hadn't really heard anything new on the radio since 2005 and when I explained that to my wife she responded with "Yes, that's why when we hang out with my friends and we talk about music, you sound like Mr. Burns from The Simpsons when you talk about that new band you just discovered the other day and we tell you that they've released 4 albums and have since broken up." Then she said "And by the way, it's mid 2012, find something else to watch on Netflix than the 'Star Treks' and something else to listen to than Abba. I hate Abba and yet I know the words to 'Super Trooper'."
 
2012-08-26 07:09:08 PM  
Yeah, sorry- metal is dudes singing about their D&D character, farking strippers on the Sunset Strip or are upset because their mom told them to pick up their rooms is pretty corny. It wasn't black ice that killed Cliff Burton. That boy died under a mountain of cheesey drop-tuned chugging.
 
2012-08-26 07:11:23 PM  
Also, that list reads like it was written by a cranky 30-something that believes music died with John Lennon/the last Pearl Jam show he went to who can't stop seeing hipsters because anyone who doesn't agree with him is a hipster.
 
2012-08-26 07:12:52 PM  
#4 is just laziness. I'm in my 40's and I still find good music to listen to (roughly 5-10% of every genre has quality in it - you just have to dig through mountains of crap to get to it)



There's a reason #2 is a valid complaint. Most bands that finally break through into the mainstream, especially those that have been around for a while and have built up a following, tend to find themselves under a lot of pressure to recreate whatever made them successful - RHCP started doing a lot of mid tempo songs power ballads about California, U2 and REM more or less abandoned their low-fi stripped down approach and became glossy. shiny hit making machines and Metallica dropped all pretense of being a metal band and started recording 3 chord hard rock. They became enormously successful but in the process abandoned the music that got their old fans interested.

I don't think TFA was so much about just sticking to one obscure genre as much as letting the genre dictate how you dress, how you think, etc. (i.e. "I listen to punk, therefore i should get a mohawk, a pair of Doc Martens, and put safety pins in my nose." or "I listen to metal, therefore I will grow my goatee long and practice my devil horns handsigns", etc.)

Incorrigible Astronaut: #2- "I Liked Them Until They Got Popular" - I don't think this happens as often as people say it does- if anything, it's probably the exception- but there are bands who go straight downhill after signing the big contract Albert Haynesworth-style.

I grew up on the band (there's nothing a 10-year-old suburban white kid identifies with quite like Basket Case), but outside of the odd track here or there (Jaded/Brain Stew, Hitchin' a Ride) I can't stand them anymore.




I agree on this. I think there's very few examples of "they were better before they were big" gripes actually being made, especially when applied to Green Day.

I mean his earlier stuff was cool; those drawings, the putsch, even the book was kinda ok; but then he got popular, got all fuhrer this and reich that, became friggin' chancellor (hello-o-o! sellout!) and... just burned out, I guess.

Googled that and found a funny Urban Dictonary entry.

Metal Hipsterism is analogous in behavior to mainstream Hipsterism, only in this case applied to the numerous metal sub-genres instead of indie music. While Metal Hipsters cast disdain on the traditional Hipsters, their love of classifying metal genres has essentially turned them into what they hate.

Classic symptoms you are a Metal Hipster:

1) You hate any band that has achieved any kind of mainstream success. Your favorite term for these bands is "Mallcore".

2) You use at least three adjectives to classify every metal sub-genre. i.e., Finnish Melodic Death Metal, Vegetarian Progressive Grindcore, or Crust Punk Viking Symphonic Extremoganza. You argue the finer points of Extreme Black Deathcore vs. Black Death Extremecore.

3) You are instantly enraged if a random passerby has a farking clue what you are talking about, and are then motivated to invent a few more subgenres.
"I despise Lamb of God. Marketing crappy metal to crappy kids with M-16 patriotism. Oh God, I have turned into a lame Metal Hipster!"

"Killswitch Engage isn't even Metal. Their first 2 albums were okay but then they got Howard Jones and I think they moved to Motown Records...Oh God, I have turned into a lame Metal Hipster!"

"The fact that you even think Behemoth sounds anything like, let's say, Underoath or Hatebreed (both can safely be labeled "metalcore"), makes me quite skeptical of your knowledge of metal. If you can manage to put your biases aside for a second (i.e., your personal preference for certain genres of metal, because I know that you have them), please explain to me why it is that you think that bands like Necrophagist and Behemoth are not TDM and blackened death metal, respectively. I honestly would like to know why you don't consider Muhammed Suicmez's playing to be technical and why you don't think Adam Darski's voice qualifies as black metal-sounding. Can you, as objectively as possible, explain why you believe that the one article you posted is correct and that the countless number of professional magazines, music reviews, and metal bands out there that claim that Necrophagist is indeed tech death and Behemoth definitely is a blackened death metal band are wrong and OMG I AM METAL HIPSTER LEVEL OVER 9000!!!!"

Cliff Burton died touring on what would eventually be regarded as one of the best metal albums ever recorded, which made no mention of Dungeons and Dragons, strippers, parents, or anything else you're complaining about.

Metallica hasn't done anything worthwhile in a long time, but Master of Puppets is still a great album.

Ok that was pretty awesome. Also I always labeled bands back in the early 00's as metalcore, but trying to mesh traditional metal with hardcore, and a crap load of break downs. Then they started to be called mallcore, because all those bands started to become popular, and their bands shirts were all over Hot Topic. I really don't know all the details, because I tried to get into it, because it was young kids trying to play metal, but man I couldn't. I didn't think they were all the talented imo. A lot of the metal bands in general over the past 10 years or so had a lot of pretty decent records, then just started to go down hill really fast. Children of Bodom would be an examples, and again this is my opinion. I just generally like a lot of older power metal, or thrash bands.

2012-08-26 07:56:36 PM  
#3 misses the point. Lots of bands, when they get popular and as the songwriters get older, lose something along the way. It's nothing new. A lot of the emotion and drive you have when you're trying to achieve success loses its point when you become successful. You get sucked in by the machine and then the fan base you've suddenly gained want you to churn out the same stuff you put out when you were new. So in a way, yes, it's reasonable to think that you liked a certain band before they got popular. From Bob Dylan to Frampton, to the Clash to Pearl Jam and Green Day there are lots of bands who, for their 'early' fans, got a bit formulaic when they suddenly became popular.

And no, American Idol hasn't 'ruined' everything, it's just a symptom of the increasing stranglehold that corporationd have over popular music. For the punk movement in the late 70s, it took a few years for the corprations to catch up to something that came from the streets. Nowadays they are on everything like stink on shiat

I know, but now they are considered something else, and for someone who is anal about music like that guy is, he should of pointed that out in his profile. Yes, I am making a big stank, only because he is gripping about whats wrong with metal over bands, that I listed that do not coincide with his personal preference of metal, death metal. He would of fit onto number 3 on the article perfectly if it wasn't for the fact that death metal isn't really an obscure genre.

I think the point was more that the specific turning point in a band's quality was when they signed to a major label and/or had a hit record. Almost all of the bands you listed were well established and popular early on in their careers.

Think about all of those friends you have, out there on the Internet clicking the "Like" button on every goddamn thing that tickles their fancy. Annoying, right? Sure it is, until you see that 190 of your friends all like a thing you've never heard of and decide to check it out for yourself and find that you like it as well.

Or 190 of your friends know someone in the band.
