Educate yourself with THE HIPSTER HANDBOOK (that I learned about awhile ago on this very MB and found quite amusing):

Theeeeeey make me happy! :P

I don't care for any band on that list. It's all the same emo and hipster bullshit. I'm sure all the hipster's secretly love twilight.

hey m shea I wasn't referring to your comment when I mentioned the phrase about "mainstream" bands. I just dislike using the term hence the quotation marks. Muse and The Killers are pretty mainstream so I wasn't that surprised when I found out that they contributed to the ost. I'm still trying to wrack my brain for a logical reason though. haha.

Btw, Thom Yorke has a new band and has some gigs lined up. So you guys who live in LA might want to check it out.

If you were referring to me (I'm not sure) I didn't mean the musicians are mainstream, I meant the fans of Twilight (New Moon, whatever) seem to like mainstream music. And I agree with whoever said that it's more like the whole Paramore fan scene.The soundtrack seems awesome, it's the movie that will probably suck.

And yeah, it's surprising that the musicians agreed to this given the associations with Twilight, but I mean it will improve their sales. I don't really care so long as the music is good. Like you all though, it's just the hipsters that get to me...

Admittedly, I read the series, mostly so that I could form an opinion about it. Pure two-dimensional entertainment. Definitely doesn't qualify as literature.

this subject is being negative what to do what to do :idea:

Hmm yeah I realized I might have gotten into a capslock frenzy when I posted this.

I understand some of the musicians included are quite "mainstream" but some really aren't. This might come off as pretentious but it's just hard to think of these musicians associated with a movie that's been so publicized especially with a target market of robertpattinsonhavemybabiez pubescent teens/tweens. What m shea said might be true though about getting more people to watch it. It just bugs me how they got the musicians to agree considering the reputation of this movie which I'm not saying is bad but is well not their usual cup of tea. It's good to get your music out there but I'm not sure if this is the best way. :|

Ugh.

fucking shit. tika i feel you. it reminds me of when reptilia came out on guitar hero..... :x

Yeah..... tis dissappointing a lil bit. like when all of these twilight fans claimed to thereafter "love" iron and wine. when really they only knew that one song.

I'm not worried about the film or soundtrack itself but the wanna be hipsters that are soon to follow that think they know "underground".

haha fucking whiners. (=

You guys are full of shit.
If you claim to not be brainwashed in loving New Moon.
You are brainwashed in hating it.
The album will be great. how does that affect the film?
and vise versa.

[quote="m shea"]This might be a bit of a stretch, but to me the people that like Twilight also listen to very mainstream music (i.e. Jonas Brothers, Miley, Taylor Swift). The people who hate Twilight are the people like us (am I right? I could be way off I dunno)

Yes, I have the same opinion, but I wouldn't say they like Jonas Brothers or Miley Cirus. I think Twilight fans are more of a pseudo-rock type of fans and like bands such as Paramore, 30 Seconds To Mars, My Chemical Romance, maybe Tokio Hotel and all that shit. I could be wrong though, I just what I noticed at my school.

Yeah, when I found out about this I was kinda negatively surprised...Ans then I found out that Muse was Meyer's favourite band... I guess that explains a lot.

This second movie is trying to compensate for the shit that was the first installment by making a killer soundtrack that will appeal to people outside of that "mainstream" realm and hopefully draw in new crowds.

Just the way I see it, feel free to correct me.

Oh and Lykki Li is to be featured on Current TV's new Embedded show, if you're a fan. That's the only reason I've ever heard of her haha.
