* Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" is all about finding hipster vintage clothes at thrift stores and showing them off at a trendy club. It also takes a poke at straw hipsters who buy faux vintage fashions from boutique stores.

It should be noted that [[DontShootTheMessage while these bands may be popular among hipsters, this doesn't make the bands themselves 'hipster bands']]. Conversely, a nominal 'hipster band' may actually be abandoned by hipsters if it [[ItsPopularNowItSucks becomes too "mainstream"]]. (Arcade Fire, for instance, were written off by many once they found mainstream popularity from its Grammy wins and soundtrack appearances in movies like ''Film/WhereTheWildThingsAre'' and ''Film/TheHungerGames''.) Additionally, a good portion of bands loved by hipsters actively reject the sarcasm, snobbery, and trendiness that often go along with hipster culture. Arcade Fire have been known to throw in [[TakeThatAudience jabs]] at them in their songs ("they will eat right out of your hand/using great big words that they don't understand!") and indie folk group Music/BonIver outright defied the label by recording an ultra-sincere, proudly cheesy {{autotune}}d PowerBallad for their second album.

In TheNewTens, self-identified hipsters (if such a thing can even be found, as no one seems willing to call themselves by this name) view themselves as intellectuals who reject the mainstream and carefully define their own identities, taking [[{{Postmodernism}} a buffet-style approach]] to elements of other cultures and subcultures. Your typical hipster outfit will appropriate and/or cannibalize elements from the punk, hippie and rave scenes, plus [[TheNineties '90s]] {{Grunge}} and modern geek-chic, as well as some token from a non-Western culture (usually Asian or Native American); lacking the ''[[{{Postmodernism}} raison d'etre]]'' of any of these subcultures, the hipster will instead use [[DeadpanSnarker an air of sarcasm]] to tie the ensemble together (the '60s hippie did much the same, only without the irony). Hipsters' musical tastes are eclectic but generally centered around such genres as IndiePop, AlternativeHipHop, PostRock and minimalist {{Techno}}. Particular bands hipsters tend to enjoy include Music/BelleAndSebastian, Music/BenFolds, Jens Lekman, Music/AnimalCollective, Dr. Dog, Music/BestCoast, and all of the Elephant 6 Collective bands (especially Music/NeutralMilkHotel), although only knowing those bands is only [[Franchise/GIJoe half the battle]] as an obscure and eclectic taste in music is preferred. ''[[http://pitchfork.com Pitchfork]]'', a music blog, is probably the most important hipster tastemaker and gatekeeper of the past decade. Politicly, the typical hipster will be center-left, being against "big business" and believing strongly in political correctness and social justice, but still weary of things like taxes, and, like their fashion and music tastes, taking a mix-and-match approach to general views (This is sometimes [[{{Flanderization}} flanderized]] into a StrawmanPolitical quasi-socialist who thinks EverythingIsRacist and that [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical everything has political undertones]]).

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgGItLYyBQ0 "That Boy That Girl"]] by Hadouken! mocks the hipster/indie scene that was popping up in the UK at the time (2006). There was a whole a whole scene sort of analogous to the American {{Crunkcore}} scene, of MySpace famous bands merging indie music and electronics, and fans dressing like they were going to a rave (NME labelled the genre "New Rave"). Most of Hadouken!'s early output was basically this but PlayedForLaughs, and by the time their first album came out in 2008 they'd gotten past it, and most of the new songs on it were serious.
