Are you a hipster, or have any hipster traits? Do you like some bands more if nobody else knows them? Do you wear ironic t-shirts and own a Mac and chill at Starbucks?

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

i listen to a number of bands that are so obscure, not even the hippest hipster is hip to them. this may or may not have something to do with the fact that i am the only member and don't share their music with anyone. also, i've always thought fans of black metal to be like the hipsters of the metal world. i'm also trying to get involved with the radio station at school, and they are all hipsters. the one girl who is in charge of all the music says that if anyone else around here plays it, she doesn't.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

In all seriousness, i'm pretty sure I do have quite a few hipster traits, but this is in context of the people where I live. Most people don't know who Radiohead are, even though they're one of the biggest bands ever, so me and my mainstream taste in music and stuff is super hipster.

Purple was my favorite color before it became to unofficial hipster color. So, I'm part of the problem.

Nobody ever knows of my favorite band when I tell them about them (but I'd love it if they became famous) and I have an unshaven neck beard because I'm too lazy to shave it, but other than that not really.
#13
I buy vinyl, and listen to a lot of not-well-known bands. Hipster enough
I'm just like the Jonas Brothers,

I'm no longer relevant and write mediocre music.


#16
Who would want to admit to being a hipster?

They just get abuse for being a hipster anyways
#18
I do things like hang out in coffeeshops with my Macbook, I own a record player with a good assortment of records, I have a pair of Vans Old Skools, I wear skinny jeans, and I have one of the wool caps that chill on the back of your head. A good number of people would probably call me a hipster.

Yeah honestly, a little. I go on pitchfork to find new music, I have a hipster's taste in hip hop, sometimes I dress like a hipster.

Pretty much this.

I am a hipster in that I'm annoyed by some people's musical taste.
#23
If someone admits to being a Hipster then that renders them, Not a hipster.
They are only a tryhard then.
#25
I like a lot of bands that are not known, but I don't really like them more because of it. I have come across some very obscure bands which I hate.

I loathe genericism in music, but I don't know if that is "hipster" or not.
they're coming to take me away
ha-haaa
#26
Yeah, I have some hipster traits. I like PBR, I listen to a fair number of "indie" bands, I find real irony funny and I like flannel. However, I also listen to a good bit of metal/-core (non-ironically), go hunting and fishing all the time (and flannel is great to wear for that) and think it's really cool when I meet someone who likes some of the less popular bands I enjoy.

So no, I don't think I really am.

Nope. My favorite band is Metallica. I don't care if they're fairly mainstream, they make good music. I don't think anyone should ever base their musical tastes off of who's "mainstream" they should just listen to what they like.

The guys around here that listen to Lady Gaga claim they can't be hipster. They're the biggest hipsters I know.
#34
The only thing hipster about me is that I like indie rock and know some bands others don't (although most of them are not indie at all)
If Rock is a life-style, then Metal's an addiction

Yelloooow!

Maybe a bit. I had an arguement with some guy in the comments section of one of my youtube covers because he though I was a hipster.
If music was the food of love I'd be a fat romantic slob.

Kinda. I have some ironic shirts, I like finding good bands that aren't huge--though I still like mainstream bands-- and I think vintage stuff is pretty cool. But actively countering something because it's mainstream is kinda like this: http://www.cracked.com/article_18916_5-reasons-why-anticonformity-worse-than-conformity.html

I listen to old music, lesser known songs by famous artists, I tend to play guitar and write poetry more than anythin else. I like to dress in old school fashion and use old school slang. Some other stuff. People say I am, some say I'm not. I'm just myself, and I'm different from everyone, I know that for a fact. If that qualifies as hipster, than I am. But if it doesn't, then I'm not. I'm just me.
Please call me Rainer, was 16 and empty minded when I made my profile.

Sometimes I talk to myself too...but never on the internet.
