Hipster Music Index

March 7, 2014

This week, priceonomics.com created an index and an info graphic to determine what bands and acts actually get categorized s “Hipster Bands.” The idea of finding out if something is truly hipster or not is very interesting, but it does not seem like this list/ graphic is very accurate. It goes by the score of a review by one website and shows how many shares it should have on Facebook, versus the actual amount of shares and likes the band itself has. 

Another flaw, within the index, Drake is listed as hipster, when we saw last week that he was one of the most streamed artists in the country. The information in the priceonomics article also only takes account into information from 2013-2014, and does not specify what part of 2013 it is referencing. So, that’s a thing.

Rock question of the week:

What is your favorite “hipster” band?
