It was the first weekend of 2014. Dudes in handlebar mustaches and bushy beards and ladies in beanies, combat boots, and plaid skirts crowded the back patio of Gramps.
With a glass of Penicillin on one hand and a cigarette on the other, the (mainly) hipster crew in the Wynwood bar reminisced on all the twerking, sexist songs, and radio overkill of the last year. And if there is one thing everyone agreed on, it's that pop music is dead.
Here are Miami's ten most hated songs of 2013, according to the music junkies at Gramps. May 2014 bring better music to our ears.
Lady Gaga featuring R Kelly "Do What U Want"
Peter and Grace were sitting out back on one of the benches.
"I don't listen to the radio much, but that Lada Gaga and R. Kelly one is supersexist," said Peter. "She did cool stuff before, but then released that shit."
Robin Thicke featuring Pharrell and T.I. "Blurred Lines"
"'Blurred Lines' is another sexist one," added Grace. "I like everything about it. I think the back up and vocals are great, but the lyrics kill it."
Sure, the song might be about rape and all. But you gotta admit, it's pretty catchy.
