    Hipster music defined: "We were born too late to enjoy the `60s, so we listen to people trying to sound like the Beatles despite the amount of musical progress society has made since them."

    Arcade Fire has been a relatively mainstream band for a few years now. Nowhere even close to Bieber or Gaga fame, but they won so the whole faux-hipster thing that`s cool in music can perpetuate (Kesha much?)

    isnt the whole point of hipsterism is to openly shun the mainstream, thus arcade fire winning a Grammy automatically make them "sellouts and "mainstream"?

    Arcade Fire? Never heard of them. I don`t follow music. Well, new music, AKA BAD MUSIC!

    Music was cool in the 90`s...the 2000`s killed it. I can think of a few good pop songs from the 2000`s...but they aren`t "retro cool" yet (kinda like how Flock of Seagulls became cool in the 90`s, or Europe).

    So I take it Arcade Fire makes lame ass douche music? (judging from comments) And I actually think the whole Justin Bieber thing is a troll from the music industry. Everyone seems to hate him, except prepubescent girls...and me of course. But I do it to annoy people around me. They said they were going to get me the album for my birthday, but I told them I would blast that poo 24/7 if they ever dared....

    Also, stop calling her Lady Gaga. Ir anything else similar. Call her Lady Caca. She looks like crap and sings like crap. A friend modified this term to include her man-bulge: Laddie Caca.

    I hadn`t heard of them either, so I watched a couple of their vids. It`s pretty much generic "alternative" crap. Nothing you can`t hear coming out of a garage after high school lets out.

    If everyone knows who Arcade Fire is, and start to listen to them, then it will cease to be "hip" in any way, because hipsters only listen to crap nobody`s heard of.

    ALL THE MORE REASON for everyone to know who this horrible band is. We can slowly wean hipsters into listening to decent music... which will gradually cure them of their hipster disease.

    Hipster doesn`t mean anything - it`s a demeaning term thrown from one person to another - anyone can be called a "hipster"... usually by people who are either called "hipster" by someone else, or by complete douchebags. It really doesn`t mean anything. It`s like calling someone a "witch" in the 1620s. Perhaps you don`t like this person, or they are doing something which is different from something that you would do, so you call them on it.

    mrtatulas: no. being hipster is trying to go against mainstream by not conforming to any labels, yet in doing so they conform to the `hipster` label. hipsters like to drink bad beer because its `ironic` and do other weird things to just to stick out, such as dress like total retards. i don`t know what kinda hipsters you`re seeing up in canada, but it`s absolutely nothing like calling someone a witch in the 1600s

    ps: ARCADE FIRE IS A GOOD BAND OKAY?!?!?!? at least they make real, original music by playing instruments rather than have their voices distorted and perfected over synthesized, ridiculously repetitive beats,with lyrics a monkey could write aka the rest of mainstream music.

    @zlatan "being hipster is trying to go against mainstream by not conforming to any labels"

    As far as I know, Arcade fire has belonged to 4 different labels. They also nominated and received "Best Album of the Year" at the Grammy`s.
    Your argument on that account, doesn`t make sense.

    Also forgot to mention. I hate going to concerts that have hipsters because I am such an obvious umm.. not hipster lol and they always just stare at me thinking " what is she doing here" Just cause I look nothing like them. Why does one have to look like everyone else to enjoy a band?
