During an appearance on the Metal Hammer podcast, Behemoth’s Adam “Nergal” Darski was talking about his admiration for hipsters and how he tries to find hipster hang outs when he’s on tour. Oddly, he then went on to say that “there’s hipster in each one of you” and that he bets “there’s Adolf Hitler in each one of you as well.” It seems he was just trying to use an extreme example to say that everyone has some sort of evil or hatred inside them, but his comments have still caused some controversy.
Nergal said the following:
“Culturally, hipsters make the world evolve. Am I hipster myself? I don’t know because I try to run away from any definitions. People love to put stickers on your forehead, and my on forehead there’s a lot of space so I always get more than one. It’s cool.
“If it makes your life easier, it’s cool with me, but trust me, if I’m a hipster then fine, I’m a hipster and a billion other things at the same time.”
“I throw the card out and I do it because that’s what the complexity of human nature is all about. We’re very complex beings and you people, you bashers and accusers, you better learn that.”
“The sooner you learn about that the happier and less frustrated you’re going to be, the less violent and aggressive you’re going to be towards other people because it’s all about yourself.”
“There’s hipster in each one of you. This is going to be very controversial for some people, but I bet there’s Adolf Hitler in each one of you as well, maybe a little percent. We are everything.”
