Top 10 Hipster/Cult Media Products and Music Artists that are Elevated to the Most Ridiculous "God Status" by Their Fans

The Top Ten

1 Undertale

I so VERY dearly wish that the Undertale fandom's problem actually WAS as simple as "pretentious indie version of Earthbound likewise has the even more pretentious-hipster version of said game's fanbase", but no; as if the game getting 10/10 review scores from not one but two of THE most cynical game reviewers on the planet (Jim Sterling AND Yahtzee Croshaw) along with IGN wasn't already enough, we now have Youtube videos with titles like "TORIEL'S FEET WITH BEDTIME STORY: TRY NOT TO LAUGH CHALLENGE" and "GAME THEORY: SANS IS WHITE", along with fanfictions with titles like "Incestual Apocalypse" and "Alphys Gets Overly Intimate With The Amalgamates" and over seventeen million each of Photoshop parodies and needlessly ascended forced memes; believe me, this is merely scratching the SURFACE of how ridiculously overhyped this game is
(you're just going to have to trust me when I say that the Pacifist and Genocide runs are legitimately some of THE most memorable experiences you will ...more

2 Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Please, can you stop talking about this sodding band?
It's just Muse and Coldplay but for a richer man...
Shut up (I may be pretentious, but compared to Yorke I'm rather modest)
Shut up (if I hear one more thing about OK Computer, I'm eating your liver)
If they're so great, why don't they have better albums?
The song this is spoofing was from their last good one since (The) Bends
Shut up (they may be weird, but hardly creative)
Shut up (even Nirvana, at its time, was more innovative)
Their lyrics condescend like no other
(I've) heard less girly singing from my MOTHER
YOU'RE A PRETENDER! YOU'RE A PRETENDER!
WHY DON'T YOU LISTEN TO HARD ROCK?!
YOUR TASTE IS GARBAGE! YOUR TASTE IS GARBAGE!
WHY DON'T YOU LISTEN TO HARD ROCK AND DEATH METAL?!
Lame and...boring...so damned lame...and...boring...
Uninspired...repetitious composition...(and) lyricism...
Mainstream...sellouts...think they're so avant-garde...
Why does Yorke think...he's so ...more

3 Beavis & Butt-Head

Someone seriously included it on their list of greatest masterpieces ever made.

Sad but true: Many of the people who watched this overrated trash never actually watched Metalocalypse or Clone High
(if nothing else, at least this show was actually AWARE of how bad it was and had a pretty hilarious movie as well)

4 Earthbound Earthbound Product Image

I literally cannot name even a single aspect besides dialogue-writing and aesthetic charm in which this is even REMOTELY near the greatest role-playing game ever made; at least Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI had the music, graphics and (for the time) storytelling intricacy to back up said claims

5 The Ren & Stimpy Show The Ren & Stimpy Show, often simply referred to as Ren & Stimpy, is an American animated television series created by John Kricfalusi for Nickelodeon.

Basically everything I said about Invader Zim but dialed up to eleven; honestly, it's a straight-up terrible show that also massively kickstarted the 1990s decade's infamous "gross-out cartoon" trend that Rocko, early Spongebob and Courage were among remarkably few actually good things to come out of...

and on an additional related note, if you've never seen Mega Babies (most especially its Inner Ear Inferno episode) and/or Brothers Grunt, consider yourself lucky even if your life already IS a poverty-stricken living hell to begin with

6 Rick & Morty Rick and Morty is an American adult animated science fiction sitcom created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon for Adult Swim.

Pretentious (Adjective) Fracking (ADJ Verb) Windbag (noun) - "To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Rick and Morty. The humour is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of theoretical physics most of the jokes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Rick's nihilistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation- his personal philosophy draws heavily from Narodnaya Volya literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these jokes, to realise that they're not just funny- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike Rick & Morty truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the humour in Rick's existential catchphrase 'Wubba Lubba Dub Dub', which itself is a cryptic reference to Turgenev's Russian epic Fathers and Sons. I'm smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads ...more

7 Invader ZIM Invader Zim is an American animated television series created by Jhonen Vasquez for Nickelodeon. The series centers on an extraterrestrial named Zim from the planet Irk, and his mission to conquer Earth and enslave the human race along with his malfunctioning robot servant GIR.

Great show, but I'm sorry, it's just not quite on the Rocko/Avatar tier as far as Nickelodeon animated series are concerned (Classic Spongebob, for the record, is probably the closest Nickelodeon's come to matching those two since their respective cancellations)
And I'm just going to be perfectly honest here; the show tries WAY too hard to be edgy (which is also something that, for the record, Courage The Cowardly Dog did WAY better)

8 Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce ...read more.

No joke, I once heard an actual user on this site (not going to name any names here, but STILL) claiming that this guy straight-up INVENTED the art of rapping; I'm sorry, but if you seriously cannot even correctly guess which of the two main skin colors of people invented rap, you almost literally could not even possibly be making a more uneducated guess on the matter (in fact, I could even see Eminem's original black predecessors making an entire diss track about how ignorant of a statement that is)

9 Metroid Metroid Product Image

THE LAST COPIES OF FEDERATION FORCE AND OTHER M ARE NOW BURIED SOMEWHERE SUSPICIOUSLY NONDESCRIPT IN NEVADA. THE METROID FANBASE IS STILL AT WAR...
(cue dramatic opening music)

I first battled the Metroid fantards on forum Nintendo. It was there that I foiled the plans of seemingly everyone in said forum to delete every single game in the series that didn't precisely emulate the exact gameplay formula of Super Metroid from existence...

I next fought the Metroid fantards on their homeworld, Planet Butthurtubbowt AM2R. I completely roasted them except for one particularly fat and autistic one with an emo flock-of-seagulls haircut and only three lip piercings (not to mention layers of eye shadow), who after recovering followed me on Instagram like a confused teenage valley girl...
I personally delivered him to the Cringe Anarchy sub on Reddit so that the cheap iDubbbz ripoffs largely populating said community could study his body-odor-producing qualities...

10 Courage The Cowardly Dog Courage the Cowardly Dog is an American animated horror comedy television series created by John R. Dilworth for Cartoon Network as part of the network's Cartoon Cartoons block.

Supremely excellent work of art, I will admit,
but as an actual show, it is probably only the sixth or seventh best one on CN

Absolutely INCREDIBLE show from both top-to-bottom AND mostly everything in-between (probably at least Top 30 if not Top 20 or perhaps even Top 15 material for Greatest Western Animation Shows Of All Time from a purely objective standpoint), and overall smarter and better-written than Ren & Stimpy and Beavis & Butthead by at least several light-years each, but an "intangibly supernatural animated entity" it is most definitely not (God, how I regret my high-school years, especially in the field of journalism)

In laymen's terms, the show is simply NOT pure 100% genius (save for a select few episodes like Wacky Delly, Teed Off, Who's For Dinner, Closet Clown, Heffer In A Handbasket and Camera Shy) and really needs to stop being treated as such
