Australian band The Rubens took the nation by storm in 2012, with their debut self-titled album peaking at number three on the ARIA charts. Three years later, the boys are back with second album Hoops.
We sat down with two members from the band, to see what makes them say "OK" and what makes them give a big thumbs down.
1. Reuben Sandwiches:
Sam: We had to do this promo thing one time where we had to eat all the best Rueben sandwiches in Sydney. And I don't even like them to start off with, so the last shot was me keeled over, nearly vomiting!
2. Online trolls:
3. Music reality shows like The X Factor and The Voice:
Sam: It's the worst thing to happen to music for a long time!
Will: And for common knowledge and personal development.
4. The Bachelor Australia:
Sam: Festivals are the funnest thing you can do as a band. Basically you already have a ready made audience of 20,000 people and you never get that anywhere else.
Sam: I just hate the fact that hipsters love basketball. Like you didn't care two years ago, you didn't have a team. We called our record Hoops but it's nothing to do with basketball.
Will: It reminds me of the good old days! Being a teenager.
Sam: There's some nostalgia there.
10. Taylor Swift:
13. Alcohol served in hipster jars:
Sam: Just leave it man. It's not necessary. Also… put a sign on your bar! It's not cool to not have a sign on your bar. It doesn't help. Especially when it's down some secret alleyway. Ugh God… it's hard to be hipster I reckon!
14. Drunk crowds at live shows:
15. When a McFlurry isn't flurried:
Sam: Like when it's not mixed?
Will: I've had that a couple times.
Sam: Terrible! They're too thick to do it yourself.
