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.

It ain't easy being hard when you're rolling face, hugging a Care Bear.

Fist Pumping

Sorry, bro. Fist pumping is not cool and manly. Punching a wall because that drop was so hard? That would be kinda cool. Thrusting your jazz-hand skyward to the infectious, spunky beat? Wimpy. 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.

Big-Room Builds

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? Why does it all have to sound like Jesus came back on a Technicolor spaceship to rain roses over the club? It's really not that epic, yo. It's really all about the same.
