If you’re at a party and some sweaty boy starts explaining something to you about Death Grips or Pavement, or some other band that you've known about since 2013, here are some replies to get them to please shut the fuck up.
"Shut the fuck up, please."
"ACTUALLY, just because a mediocre band of guys sings about yearning for a girl, it doesn’t make it feminist. These songs portray women as one-dimensional, only seen as the cause of a poor boy’s heartache. Furthermore, they shut out real-life girls from truly connecting with the music. Rock critic Jessica Hopper explains it best in her article ‘Emo: Where The Girls Aren’t,’ 'We’re vessels redeemed in the light of boy-love. On a pedestal, on our backs. Muses at best. Cum rags or invisible at worst.'"
"I guess I just don’t get Pavement."
"Being a music bully is lame... but trust me, your music taste is lame."
"I could probably beat your ass." (We at Grlsplain do not condone violence, but,)
Literally don’t say anything, just stare. Don’t do anything else just fucking stare.
"They're good but my band is better."
"Thank you so much for that information but I am ending this conversation now!"
"This isn't going to impress me."
and last, but not least,
