Stereogum has put together a fairly funny spoof of The Oscars dead people tribute with a salute to the “indie” rock bands we said goodbye to in 2008.
Geesh that sentence was a mouthful.
Anyway, it’s pretty well done, with the monochromatic footage and the respectful golf claps, even as it has its tongue firmly planted in its cheek. Some of these bands will actually be missed, others not so much. My only gripe is they should have gone for a bigger punchline at the end.
