hipsters, usually some where between 16 and 24 years old, are in people in the process of breaking their ties with the ska punk "scene" that they dearly loved as a teenager. Their main form of transportation is a fixed gear road bike. Guy hipsters ussally wear skinny jeans, self designed t-shirts(printed drawn, spray painted, ect.). Girl hipsters will sport just about anything that doesn't have a brand logo on it that can be found in their local thrift store, both are often seen with lesbian-esque haircuts and chuck taylor's or vans. Politically, hipsters are very liberal and often are socialist and are in love with Abbie Hoffman and Che Guevara but are too lazy to start any kind of a revolution. Musically, hipsters listen to many genres, some bands most hipsters listen to are the beatles, atleast one of conor obersts projects, the cure, modest mouse, matt and kim, mgmt, the smashing pumpkins and the smiths, many hipsters are also secretly in love with my chemical romance but won't admit it unless they catch their hipster friend listening to them although they often have intense hatred for followers of the christ-core scene.

A derogatory term, originally coined by the infamous Sargent D (of SYWH fame), used to describe elitist metalheads who only listen to bands that are currently considered to be "hip" and "underground".more...
The heavy metal equivalent of hipsters. Often the first people to cry "Sell-Out!" the moment a band has success of any kind. IMNs often tend to have very few friends and/or a dead end job. They mostly stick to basement dwelling and they never EVER get invited to parties.
There are two cardinal sins among IMNs:
- Diversity: If it isn't metal it can't be any good. IMNs hate people with a broad taste in music. That means that all other forms of music i.e. Jazz, Blues, Reggae/Ska, Punk (aside from a few choice Hardcore bands), Folk, Alternative, Indie, and any other genre you can name are all forbidden. Most IMNs don't seem to realize that their favorite metal bands have very strong. non-metal influences.
- Bands They Don't Like: IMNs like to think they are the be all end all music authority whether they realize it or not. With most people, mentioning a band someone dislikes will illicit a shrug. However, mentioning or expressing like for any band they hate will earn you the ire of IMNs everywhere. Prepare to be cyberbullied by
