Maybe not. But without them, were would we be?

Thanks. Apparently you're the only one who gets that if you start a thread with a title like this one has, and then lash out at everyone who disagrees with you, you kinda deserve to be flipped some shit over it. If you then back-pedal and say you never meant a word of it and it's everyone else who's being overly sensitive and obtuse and just doesn't get your little joke, then you also deserve to be called out for being full of shit.

So? Decibel likes them, so you're being a mindless sheep if you do, too? C'mon, man. I liked those bands before Decibel ever "told me" they were cool, so fuck the fact that Decibel happens to agree with me. I don't have time to scour the internet trying to find shit that's not on anyone else's list so I can adopt it as my own and thus be called the coolest cat on the block because my year end thread is filled with shit nobody ever heard of - I like what I like. Period.

It's a derogatory word everywhere. Catch up.

And apparently I'm a trendy-ass hipster because I like doom and black metal. Though, not good doom, as ravenheart would reckon. Only he and one or two other people like good doom. I like hip doom.

I also like post-rock, making me even more hip than if I just liked hip doom.

DethMaiden is just a dilettante who likes to sit in Barnes & Noble and fancy himself a pundit as he writes his hipster reviews of the newest hipster albums, like Sunbather.

Shoegaze is typically beautiful, but vacuous. But it's way better than slam metal.

We have all been brainwashed by Aristotle for the last 2,500 years.
Best post in this thread. There is much wisdom here (it's just too bad a few people didn't get it).

Also, SubRosa is most definitely doom. Are they most definitely hip? Beats the fuck out of me. No one knows who they are, so I suppose the answer is yes. Is that how it works? Probably not. All I know is that their new album is so good, that there's a very serious possibility of them topping my year-end list with consecutive albums. I thought for a minute about the shit I might get from people for doing that, but this thread cements it. I don't give a fuck. The album spoke to me yet again, and I just couldn't get it out of my listening queue (not that I ever wanted to). That's what my lists are all about. I'd be a charlatan if I dropped it down a few notches just so I don't appear to be a fanboy. If that's what I am, then so be it.

For a long time this year I thought I might end up doing the same with Cathedral, but they've been beaten out now. In fact, their position in my top ten is in jeopardy, even though it's a fantastic album.

Didn't say they were bad, they're just hip.

So basically, based on this thread, hip =/= popular.
