If you've somehow managed to avoid the Internet entirely for the last week or so, you probably don't know how bad your musical taste really is. Hate to break it to you, but all those bands you love so much--Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, the Decemberists, Wavves--turns out not only are they unoriginal hipsters, but they're just, well, kind of annoying. So says our sister paper L.A. Weekly, anyway. And in more ways than one, we tend to agree with them. After all, how many of us have finally realized the top 20 bands in our Spotify playlists sound like the same five acts repeated over and over with different members that look like Buffalo Exchange threw up all over them? In the spirit of angering a few Millennial keyboard warriors before their first morning sips of chai tea, we invite you to see where your favorites stack up on this viral canon of the top 20 worst hipster bands.
