Take this you freaking indie metal hipsters*.
*Okay, I don't even know what an indie metal hipster really is, but from reading music blogs, I've learned it's fun to make up new names for movements and then make fun of said movement, all the in the same breath.

This is hilarious. I'll let you borrow my Killswitch Engage DVD to try and understand a few things . . .
Saw this the other day. Surprisingly, it's even funnier with a belly full of beer.
and the whole "hipster metal" thing, at least in my mind, are groups that you can hear the influence of hipster bands like Sonic Youth as well as the regular Metal influences. Bands like Pelican and Isis are more of that movement. Then there are metal bands that hipsters happen to like. I'm not sure if there is irony there in every case though.
