Everyone starts talking about Modest Mouse, mostly fangirling over them, I become restless and irrritable as they are literally one of my least favorite bands.
Professor: ”What kind of music is Modest Mouse? Like what kind of scene do they represent.”
Guy: “They’re kind of dark.”
Me (bluntly): “They’re hipster.”
Guy 2: “They’re too old to be hipster.”
Me: ”No they are…I was forced to see them live and the guy was wearing those short shorts and I don’t know…”
Girl (sarcastically): ”You were forced to see them live, how terrible!”
Me: ”It was terrible! They were the opening act.”
Guy: ”For who?”
Everyone starts yapping about what a strange match up that is. I tell them it was a festival.
Guy 3 (surprised): ”Modest Mouse was the opener?”
Guy 2 (also surprised that Modest Mouse was the opener): ”I will say, Metallica are definitely the better musicians.”
Me: ”Um, yeah.”
Guy 3: ”No, Modest Mouse are way better musicians.”
Guy 2: ”No, Metallica is, but Modest Mouse is way more culturally relevant.
