Because there are enough people quietly brooding about the state of pop culture in 2013.
When someone asks me if I like the Foo Fighters, I say no. And instead of laughing at their shocked response (“How do you not love Dave Grohl???”), I tell them why.
They don’t get it. They never get it. Which is fine; we’re not all critics.
Still, back yr shit up. There’s no point in avoiding culture-speak if you have an opinion.
Besides, what good is being pretentious if you won’t defend it?
It’s the 2013 punk aesthetic, come on get with it.
