You're so so so so cliche, again

dance bitches, it's hump day.

Have you even ever seen a chicken? -Michael Bluth

Now, I posted the first part of Stereotyping People by Their Favorite Indie Bands a while back.

Now it's time for part 2

We thought no one left unscathed after Stereotyping People by Their Favorite Indie Bands: Part 1. Fortunately, we were very, very wrong. Last time, we called out Vampire Weekend fans for their ever-subtle Pete & Pete pickup lines, but this time we’ve taken the invective even farther. (Well, hello, Sleigh Bells fans!) Again, in collaboration with Jeff Luppino-Esposito and in tribute to Internet genius Lauren Leto and her “Stereotyping People by Their Favorite Authors,” we rebel against the misguided notion that stereotyping isn’t an awesome idea.
