You butthurt about something? How do you know this? Have you ever seen them live? Dude, that chick (1) is a natural-born entertainer, and (2) quite possibly has major issues, but one thing is clear: Crystal Castles is not simply a grab for hipster cash. It's wicked catchy music for people who know what sounds cool as fuck (that would be me ). If that makes me a hipster, so be it, but I don't know too many hipsters who listen to as wide a range of shit as I do and have the sincere love for it that I do.

...and while we're throwing around the "h" word (well, you are, not me) - I forgot to bust your chops for the comment about Red Sparowes being hipster-ish because of the long song titles. They're long for a reason. One of these days I'll get around to posting in that thread to explain what I mean, but there is definitely a method to their (apparent) madness.

I have several friends who are amateur chiptune composers and are heavily, heavily into the "scene" and they lay this shit on me every fucking time someone brings up Crystal Castles.

Aha, the truth is revealed. It is not you who is butthurt - it is they. I could tell somebody was. It's simple...it's called jealousy. Understandable. Crystal Castles is blowing up right now, that's f'sho. Your friends will likely get their break...if they're good. That's what happened with CC...some of their shit leaked onto the Internet pretty much by accident - it was a demo called "Alice Practice"...next thing you know, they're melting faces at Lollapalooza. Go figure. I love 'em, though. The shit is addicting as fuck to me.

I think Justice is about as far up that ladder I'm willing to go.

Opeth is the Lamb of God of prog metal.

Whatever
They aren't a band with stage antics or presence, but neither is Cynic, right?

Wow - I didn't expect this reply. Anybody I know who has seen them live was impressed. I guess they just really aren't your thing. Fair enough.

I don't know if I'd call them "boring", though. They're too unique and different to be painted with that brush, I think. They're talented, progressive and above all, HEAVY. Kind of like BTBAM, but without the shitty clean vocals and breakdowns that really don't fit the music. (easy, Brad - I'm just kidding)
