Oh, those hipsters! Always trying to go against convention! LOLz!

While many would assume that most of the aloof, disinterested and anti-mainstream subculture's capital would be the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn, NY, a recent on-line poll tracking which states have the most collective on-line search volume for the term "hipster" may suggest otherwise!

Check out the top ten most hipster heavy states - you know, until they read this and then move somewhere else so no one thinks that they're a stereotype…AFTER THE JUMP!

    fuck hipsters.



  2. 2

    Yeah too bad no one cares.



  3. 3

    I live in Minnesota and this is just dumb. The hipsters here only act and dress like hipsters to be cool. All frauds!



  4. 4

    i seriously thought that CA would be #1!



  5. 5

    Not surprised that Illinois is on the list. Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood is known to many as "mini-Williamsburg" due to the yuppy 20something demographic that inhabit the area. Nice list, Perez.



  6. 6

    not surprised that Mass and Rhode Island are on there, bitches are everywhere!! they are soooo "original"



  7. 7

    Classless, cultureless frauds–ugh, what a headache. Accurate list, Perez.

    As far as hipsters go, Brooklyn definitely beats Minnesota. I am from Minneapolis and I would think (if this list is actually based off web searches) the reason MN is #1 is because we have thriftyhipster.com which gives daily happy hour specials for neighborhood bars in the city. I can pretty much guarantee that's why we're on top.

    I've never understood the "Mainstream's" animosity towards "Hipsters". While you're busy watching "Glee", listening to GaGa, and texting "LOL OMG" to your "besties", we're busy discovering & enjoying all the stuff you'll be watching, listening to, reading, & wearing in the next year or two. Shouldn't you be thanking us? I mean, c'mon…it's not our fault you're uncool.

    illinois, I totally believe



  11. 11

    I live in Williamsburg, believe me, it's ridiculous. People just think they are so cool, when really they look like idiots. Everyone tries to out-do everyone else, and now it's the place to be "seen."

    God I hate hipsters. And I accidently announced that fact in a SoHo Urban Outfitters once… oops…

    Re: armchair
    That statement is exactly why everyone hates hipsters. They're conceited and think they are just so original and innovative when really, that's not the case.

    Being from IL, I knew it had to be on there. Not only are those hipsters all over the place (especially in Chicago), but there also seems to be some hipster influence in other people throughout the Chicago area. Beware if you like anything popular. The hipsters will scoff at you, then go listen to a Tegan & Sara album.



  14. 14

    Illinois SOOO TRUE. I live in Chicago…….the South Loop, Pilsen, Logan, Wicker Park….all hipster central!!!!!! But hey I aint complainin'.



  15. 15

    Re: Tsinakis – Totally agree. Everyone thinks that just because they went to a concert at First Ave or shopped at the Electric Fetus that now they're suddenly hipster. I can't stand them.

    Hi Perez, I love you but this is stupid. This is another stereotype that people will use to promote judgment and labels. What makes one a 'hipster' is it being fashionable, cultured, is it owning Raybans? Promoting indie music? Reading books?

    if so you and everyone that you admire and blog about falls beneath this umbrella. Those that use the term 'hipster' are generalizing people in a way that is offensive.

    You, yourself are the epitome of 'hipster' you blog about celebrities, wear fashionable clothes, talk self indulgently about your interests and music, and live in what is according to this ridiculous post the number 9th hipster mecca in the United States.

    You actually have a comment written down there that says 'God i hate hipsters” is that the type of thinking you aim to promote?

    This post makes me seriously question your compassion and intelligence.

    aaaah…i can't stand hipsters! i live in bay ridge brooklyn and I work on the lower east side of NYC and it's hipster haven over there because the williamsburg bridge connects the two together and it's like the lower east side is infested with hipsters. i cant stand them with their "too cool for mainstream society" attitude and their moody stares with their stupid bikes with no brakes. newsflash…you suck!



  18. 18

    NORTHAMPTON, Massachusetts! Uggggh!



  19. 19

    "real" hipsters wouldn't Google the term 'hipster' though…



  20. 20

    of course oregon. portland is so full of hipsters, it's ridiculous. one just needs to walk down any main boulevard and find all kinds wandering around the pubs and coffeehouses.



  21. 21

    I'm surprised WA isn't #1. Seattle is like the hipster capital of the world.



  22. 22

    I despise hipsters. They are the devil.



  23. 23

    Re: Tsinakis – that's exactly what the majority of hipsters are. The only "true" hipsters are the older ones (probably starting at about 30 years old) who just are like that.



  24. 24

    Hipsters are the most ignorant people ever……..Go against there opinion and they will attack you until you admit defeat.And they all hang out on Tumblr!!!!



  25. 25

    Re: armchair – This proves my first comment.



  26. 26

    Re: armchair – HIPSTER ALERT! WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON THIS WEBSITE?? IT'S WAY TOO MAINSTREAM FOR YOU!



  27. 27

    Minnesota is the #1 state with the most hipsters? Not surprising. Hope they don't have a problem with it…it would make them too mainstream.



  28. 28

    ugh i hate that they invaded Brooklyn! Get out of my city..



  29. 29

    Re: armchair – Just in case you're being sarcastic… ah, but you are, so I won't say it :)



  30. 30

    Portland is swimming in hipsters. Hate them. Ruining a city that was once actually weird. Hipsters try to hard to fit it and are annoying as hell.



  31. 31

    why would hipsters google hipster? this study is flawed



  32. 32

    hahaha fucking hipsters
