Ten Reasons EDM Is the Wimpiest Youth Culture Movement Ever
Ever since the Beat Generation, youth culture in America has been a vibrant and rebellious driving force.
The Beats had risky views on race relations, jazz, and pot. The hippies had psychedelic drugs, sit-ins, and protest songs. Punks had mosh pits, spitting in each other's faces, and rivet jackets. Hip-hoppers had gold chains, breakdancing, and guns.
And what is there today? Ravers and EDM dominate American youth culture, and we're probably the wimpiest generation ever.

Not to mention, bros are inherently wimpy. A buff dude in a neon muscle tank with big pupils is one of the lamest things you could ever be. Sorry we're not sorry.
Of course, maybe bros wouldn't be moved to such wimpy moves if the music was a little less cheesy. What's with the brogressive house movement?
