Groupon Says

The Groupon Guide to: Sounding Knowledgeable about Music

Sounding knowledgeable about music is the ultimate shortcut to being perceived as cultured and cool. Memorize these key phrases to impress even the most jaded record-store clerk:

• “You really need to hear them live."
• “You really need to hear their earlier stuff."
• “You really need to hear their earlier stuff, ideally live.”
• “You really need to hear the stuff they haven’t written yet.”
• “You really need to hear them through $900 wireless headphones, in one of those vibrating video-game chairs.”
• “You really need to never hear them on drugs. Why would you ruin your experience by polluting your body, man?”
• “You really need to hear their views on the new economic realities of the music industry."
• “You really need to hear me sound impressive.”
