These Are the Most Hipster Bands, According to Pitchfork Rankings and Facebook Shares

by 4 years ago



I am not a hipster. I don’t say that with or without pride, it’s just a matter of fact. (Ah, who am I kidding? I’m fucking thrilled about that.) That’s probably why I have never heard of any of the bands represented by blue dots (those would be the dots below the line for any colorblind folk out there). But this is the list. THE LIST. The list of what music is hipster and what music isn’t. Where you fall will define who you are as a person. Don’t fuck this up.

So to clarify…


  1. The Field
  2. Julia Holter
  3. Iceage
  4. These New Puritans
  5. Fuck Buttons
  6. DJ Rashad
  7. The Haxan Cloak
  8. Julianna Barwick
  9. DJ Koze
  10. Autre Ne Veut

Not Hipster

  1. The National
  2. Boards of Canada
  3. Justin Timberlake
  4. The Range
  5. Deerhunter
  6. The Knife
  7. My Bloody Valentine
  8. Chance the Rapper
  9. Daft Punk
  10. Haim

Total Loser

  1. Nickelback

Person I Would Like to Be Friends with Because We Share Common Interests

  1. Pearl Jam
  2. Soundgarden
  3. A myriad of other 90s alt rock bands
  4. DMX

I have weird taste in music. Or, as some hipster who listens to the fucking Fuck Buttons might call it, “shitty.”
