Well, “best” is probably a misnomer here, as we slept through the glory days of the #FatIndieBands hashtag, which seems to have raged all night. But it’s still going pretty strong — even M.I.A. got involved! As always, points were awarded to audacity, creativity, and how profoundly the target needed to get clowned in the first place. All and all we think people are doing great out there, it being a Friday and all.
Whoever invented this,Todd Levin, we salute you.

Can we take out the “indie” part of “fatindiebands” so I can make my Diabeatles joke?
