13. Gordon Lightfoot
Nothing destroys hipster cred like a love for Lightfoot. I still remember going to see him in my early twenties and not only being the youngest actual fan (that is, not the child of a fan) there, but also noticing that the show was sponsored by the local Easy Listening station. Talk about self-discovery.

And never mind that wretched Dandy Warhols mud-squeak-fest cover of Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. I don't hate the Dandies, but blech.
