Fucked Up: “Black Keys =Nickleback for hipsters”

Fucked Up leader Pink Eyes (aka Damian Abraham) is always entertaining on Twitter, but a recent tweet about Katy Perry’s Part of Me video has sparked a fearsome rage from fans of the singer formerly known as Katy Hudson.

Abraham tweeted that “Seeing Katy Perry as a soldier in ‘Part Of Me’ really makes me think that we need to start a war so she can go die” leading to an amusing flurry of anger, which the Fucked Up singer retweeted to his followers.

He later amended his comments noting that “Yes I’m aware my last tweet was kinda dumb but so is glamorizing war to sell records to idiots. Katy Perry Still Sucks.” And asked “When will the Katy Perry fan realize I’m not fat, I’m just big boned. Please remember to spay & neuter you cats. Thanks to those that get it”




The Fucked Up frontman’s Twitter feed has also provided excellent reviews of the other important pop culture trends of the week including The Black Keys, One Direction, The Hunger Games and defines the exact level of embarrassment caused by Madonna’s new album.

Black Keys:

“Black Keys = Nickleback for hipsters”

One Direction:

“Hey @onedirection… you guys could do with some lip sync lessons eh?”

Madonna:

“The new Madonna record is the musical equivalent of when a 40 something divorcee dad buys a long board and gets into the Black Keys”

The Hunger Games:

“Hunger Games was pretty awesome… albeit a wholesale rip off of Running Man. Hunger Games is more like the Running Man meets Phantom Menace #inanokayway #noBattleRoyale #exceptforthekidkilling All jokes aside, Hunger Games is a trendy movie that tells girls to stand up for themselves & not wait vampires & werewolves to save’em #rad”

Abraham also offered some sage advice to other bands earlier this week by tweeting “BANDS: if you hate doing interviews tell your publicists not to book you for any… Or simply remember, it’s part of the job & get over it”

Basically the point of this article is – you should be following @leftfordamian. Get to it.

I reckon Fucked Up have more hipster cred than Black Keys.

Fucked Up played with the Foo Fighters. They are now certified Triple M rock pigs.

The arbiter of all things hipster, Pitchfork has given Fucked Up's last two albums 8.6 and 8.8 respectively. Black Keys last three albums have all rated 7.something on Pitchfork.

Eughh.

I hate this kind of mudslinging. Very disappointing to see someone I admire indulge in this behaviour.

Great, there goes my chances. Sizist!

BTW, I disagree with what Pink Eyes has to say but I will defend to the death his right to say anything.

I demand a Pink Eyes/One Direction collab to clear the air!

Hipsters are allowed to like 1 punk band and 1 metal band only.

They are Fucked Up and Mastodon.

It's what gives you a right to claim that lo-fi chill wave is the superior music genre.

Oh fuck, this joke actually does describe me.

Can I play it off as enjoying the "prog" influence they bring to their respective genres?

Hey, you like OFF! too, don't you?

I am sure you can find an article on Pitchfork telling you why you like them.

The more genres you throw at it the more hipster you get.

I'm sorry but I don't make the rules, Stefan, I just yell at people over the internet.

OFF!, Trash Talk, Fucked Up...that's probably it for modern acts.

There's plenty of good stuff out there in terms of current hardcore, just a matter of where to look.

i love that a man that looks like obelix is allowed an outlet. the black keys have been around for years, but fried chicken has probably purged that for him.

So, essentially, what you're saying is "HURRRRR DURRRRRR." Stop me if I'm wrong.

i dig pink eyes music but since when has blues-based rock ever been hip (shit sorry, i forgot about the white stripes, guess they were pretty hip), esp blues-based rock with a poppy twist that has suddenly entered the Triple M mainstream?

Is the constant misspelling of Nickelback intentional? Like, a running joke or something?

It's misspelled in that article title, too. Awesome.

Knowing the correct spelling of Nickleback? That's a paddlin'.

It doesn't swap around the last letters because we're in Australia, like centre/center or theatre/theater.

MAB is just upset because he's constipated.

He needs to go to the toilet and take a massive kroeger.
