Hans The Hipster

So I was DJ'ing at my other job the other night and everyone was having an argument about hipsters. I called a dude a hipster and he said "well at least I don't listen to nothing but dinosaur rock," and I was like, oh yeah, Ill show you, and started playing Hipster songs on my Ipod without even realizing how many fucknig hipster bands I actually have. So then he called me a hipster and I couldnt really argue. List is songs I played that certified my status as a quasi hipster. Now Ill have to light myself on fire.
