One who follows current trends. This term is most often applied to one who listens to popular music (played on the radio and MTV), usually with negative connotations.

Many people who refer to themselves as members of the so-called underground believe that mainstreamers are tasteless and brainwashed by popular mass media; if something is well known or popular, it is automatically "lobotomized corporate claptrap". Though this can be true, there are many exceptions. Mainstream music fans, on the other hand, believe that little to no media exposure for a band means that the band sucks. Other people, who like what they like whether it's popular or not, consider both groups to be douchebags for denying themselves potential enjoyment for a goofy image complex that they won't give a crap about when they have to get a job and move out of mom's basement.
1. Haha, that mainstreamer bimbo just said that Britney Spears is one of the world's most talented artists! What a retard.

2. Hey man, I just burned a great Metallica CD... but Metallica is a household name, and you only listen to "underground metal", so you won't like it despite the fact that they'll always blow your little Cannibal Corpse, Opeth, Zao, Killswitch Engage and Lamb of God away. Too bad for you.

Tobacco tightly rolled into smokable paper. Smoking cigarettes on occassion (1-3 a day) or just socially is OK and not very harmful. Smoking a pack or even half a pack in a day is a sign that you need help. Some people love to preach about cigarettes and give you a lot of shit if they see you smoking one because they want to seem smart, or because they're little sXe virgins who are bitter about denying themselves the occassional pleasure. A popular insult to smokers is, "Yeah, YOU'RE cool..." causing the smoker to break the face of the preteen goth-punk who said it and use his eyes as an ashtray.

In my opinion, Camel Turkish Golds are the best cigarettes around, the worst being Newports or anything menthol. Marlboros are decent. Parliaments are overrated. USA's, though not great, are good in a pinch when you forgot your wallet and only have the change laying around your car.
Cigarettes are nice here and there, but one of those things you just can't overdo.

The guy that my fellow Americans should have voted for, but apparently they don't have enough common sense to see what kind of damage is being done to our country by the divisive two-party system. An honest and real candidate who cares about domestic concerns that Bush and Kerry seem to have forgotten about in favor of fear-mongering, focusing on the so-called "threat" of terrorism.

A bassist is a musician who plays either stand-up bass or the bass guitar. He/she provides the rhythmic and harmonic foundation to a song, and is found in most any type of music, including jazz, rock, heavy metal, salsa, classical, funk, and even hip-hop.

Due to simplistic and unimaginative musicians taking over the rock mainstream, the bassist is often looked at as the guy in the background thumping along on the E-string, playing root notes and doubling the rhythm guitar. Anyone who thinks this cannot rightly be blamed; after all, there are so many "I play 4 notes per song and contribute nothing" bassists out there such as Paul Thomas, Brent Wilson, Pete Wentz, and David Desrosiers (to name a few) that the instrument hardly gets any recognition among casual music fans. The aforementioned, however, are actually not bassists but something called "failed guitarists" who had too much trouble with bar chords but decided they wanted to be in a band anyway, and switched to bass. Such "musicians" have no business being in the same category as Les Claypool, Victor Wooten, Flea, and even nu-metalers like Fieldy and Ryan Martinie who gave something to music.

What goes unrealized is how the right bassline, played by a true bassist and not just a failed guitarist, can make an otherwise average song extraordinary.
Person 1: Hey, I can't even hear the bassist in this song.

Person 2: Yeah, because he's just playing the root notes and the producer tuned him out because his timing sucks anyway.


Person 1: Dude, the bass in this Primus track is sick!

Person 2: Yeah, Claypool is a truly awesome bassist.
