So are you one of those hipster douche bags that never missed an up and coming band. And also hate all the ex up and comers that made it big because you think they sold out?
I am here to tell you “No one cares” what you like or don’t. Let me explain. Nothing irks me more than someone who can’t admit they missed something or under estimated a band. Here’s an example, I have a friend who now HATES Radiohead but for no real reason. I think he’s is upset because in 1997 I told him OK Computer was the Dark Side of the Moon of our generation. But he paid no attention, kept listening to Pavement and missed out on one of our generation’s mind blowing artists. So now he is hating on them because he missed out on the revolution. I am TIRED of people like that. Casting judgment when they can’t admit that yes, maybe I missed something while I was tied up in Neutral Milk Hotel.
Not saying I am immune to this, I’ve done it in the past. Case in point GWAR. But please people, this is a disturbing trend in music opinion/blogosphere. Sure I didn’t like the Flaming Lips show, but look at the data and the consensus. (note – the person I mentioned in the paragraph above is not GERK).
I am not saying don’t be critical, but do your homework. MP3 downloads sometimes count on what we say out here. Our beloved/hated artists count on us to some point.
With that said, I think I missed the boat on the band Menomena
These guys are similar to the (Soft Bulletin) Flaming Lips.
I’ve added a couple tracks in Grooveshark below.
