Acid washed jeans? Really??

Sorry, hipsters--you have brought back some astonishingly horrible trends. You shall not succeed with this one.

Frank Sidebottom is unimpressed from beyond the grave.

Is there 15 minutes up yet?
Because it feels like 20, so far.

Do they have a rock to wind a piece of string around?

I was done with them a couple of years ago after some sweaty, a-hole ,super fan kept  bouncing his disgusting ass against me at ACL.

Not the band's fault, but the 2 things are seriously married together in my mind.

They did this like four farking months ago on snl and Colbert

Meh, they're insufferably pretentious, their stage persona is utterly overwrought and much of their music is mediocre, bland and over-hyped.

Having said that, this is an AMAZING album:

Buy this album only and imagine them performing in jeans and t-shirts. You will be a fan.

...and in the Reflektor video.

I guess hiding your faces and mocking your own status after owning the Grammys just isn't enough for Fark.

Butler is as bad a Kanye and he must burn!!!

Wow, you hate them for ridiculous reasons, and only like their worst album.  Congratulations.

Can I take the first swing at that piñata?

I was curious about the buzz around this new group Arcade Fire, so I listened to a few of their songs on Youtube.  Or maybe it was just one of their songs on repeat.  It was boring, like eating macaroni 'n cheese without the cheese-powder put in.

When did I say I hate them? I merely commented on their style. I think you're an angry person. And your taste in music is different from mine. Have a nice weekend.
