My girlfriend has the obnoxious hipster friends who are always going on about their "obscure" music (ie shit like the arctic monkees). Rec me the weirdest, most obscure bullshit you know so I can show these twats up.
This. Not even joking. You fucking girlfriend-having fucks coming in here all "look at me I have a girlfriend". Bastards.
I'm gonna go hug my pillow and cry now, and it's all your fault OP.
tell them you only listen to Pere Ubu and
Einstürzende Neubauten (pic related)
On exactly five different occasions I've played Meet the Residents and Suicide's eponymous debut for people who claimed to only listen to '"real," obscure, music,' and have them be too freaked out.
Good place to start.

You mean like every 'hipster' we meet that thinks their music is 2deep4u/me?
I fucking that those people.
Maybe you shouldn't pretend to like something you have no idea about and just be yourself. That way you'll come off as a more real person than them and actually score points with your girlfriend.
Just play old Blues or Jazz albums whenever they come over. Eventually they'll come over and ask what it is you're listening to. You'll tell them it's just the Band performing the Last Waltz or something like that. Next time you see them, play some post-rock that wouldn't know about, when they don't get it just make a smug face. Then, you play something stupid like a harsh noise album (Merzbow or something like that) at full volume. When you're eventually asked to turn it down, make that dame smug face, just 100x smugger. "I guess you just don't get obscure music."
Put on DAF and remove your pants.
