Hipster (contemporary subculture)

The hipster subculture is stereotypically composed of youth who reside primarily in gentrifying neighborhoods. It is broadly associated with indie and alternative music and has popularised more esoteric genres such as chill-out, folk, modern rock, pop rock and post-Britpop. Hipsters also frequently flaunt a varied non-mainstream fashion sensibility, vintage and thrift store-bought clothing, generally pacifist progressive and green political views, veganism, organic and artisanal foods, alternative lifestyles and snobbery. The subculture typically consists of mostly white young adults living in urban areas. It has been described as a "mutating, trans-Atlantic melting pot of styles, tastes and behavior".

Hipsters usually pride themselves in knowing about music and bands so obscure, underground, and new that nobody else knows them. In this video, Jimmy Kimmel exposes and ridicules this aspect of "being hipster".
