Gangnam Style is shyte. I've read the translated lyrics and it's a bit more meaningful than most modern western pop songs. But to spread so far and actually dominate YouTube is just ludicrous. It's not a revolutionary sound and the only reason it's gotten so popular is because of the stupid dance.
I thought it was alright when I first saw it and I thought the dance was quite funny but nothing special. But after hearing it on the radio and seeing it on TV so many times it's gotten beyond tired and just jarring.
But what really pissed me off was when a presenter at the AMA's (American Music Awards, either this one or the EMA's) was announcing PSY's live performance, she ordained him the "Undisputed new king of pop". That is just a joke and frankly an insult to Michael Jackson's musical legacy.
Rant over, I'm not a hipster and just slightly mad.
