The 20 Worst Hipster Bands

L.A. Weekly writes: ‘Who are these hipsters we see each day in the streets, on our Tumblr feeds, and on the local news? And why are so many in bands? It’s not the mere existence of hipster groups that distresses us — some of our best friends are hipsters — it’s their lemming-like tendency to, if you’ll pardon a mixed metaphor, ape each other. On its surface hipsterdom seems to be an individuality-grab, but most of today’s bands from Silver Lake and Williamsburg sound shockingly similar.’ As for the list itself, Bon Iver (pictured) is an easy No. 1, but Arcade Fire as No. 3? Their “Reflektor” is my favorite indie CD of 2013.
