I warn you that this post, though based on rational argumentation, is rather drawn from accumulated anger. I’ve been called a hipster way too many times, and it’s time to do something about it.
So why does it bother me so much to be called such a thing? “Duh, because that means you really are one of them, hipsters never admit they’re hipsters, bla bla bla”. NO. NO. NO. Contrary to popular belief, when I try to distance myself from this definition, I’m not doing it out of modern irony or contradictory behavior. Surprisingly enough, I’m trying to say that I’m not… a fucking hipster.

Toto – Turn back
One of the most stupid bands ever, which for an unknown reason managed to get great commercial success. On the other hand, if you have a quick look at the charts, you will easily understand that we are surrounded by idiots (you are right Santiago) and that artists who are not even able to imitate the sound of a monkey playing the xylophone are or were on top. But still, this is a list focused on covers and as a cover “Turn Back” is really good. Ok, to be honest, with such a ridiculous name, it’s not that hard to come up with the idea of the cover, it’s just four letters…
