Outkast

OutKast reuniting for Coachella (and Governors Ball, Firefly and about 40 other festivals) has got a lot of us very excited, but apparently there are some people who aren't sure what the big deal is. Like when Arcade Fire and Bon Iver (or Bonny Bear) won Grammys, a number of people are taking to social media to express that they don't know who the heck OutKast is or how they could possibly headline Coachella since they only had one good song. Complex points to this "Who Is OutKast?" tumblr collecting posts from the bewildered internet users. There's a few choice ones above, and you can check out even more here.

Why am I supposed to care about Outkast? To me they are an act that had a few songs on the radio and that's it. What am I missing?

It's easy to laugh at people who have no idea who Outkast are but that to me says more about how irrelevant the band is to the type of people who are interested in Coachella. It was a poor choice in booking. The Stone Roses of 2014.

Outcast is the black guy from the electric shaver commercials. All of you who didn't know that are ridiculous. Also their big songs were 'hey ya' and some other ones or something....

what the FUCK. Outkast are one of the greatest hip hop duos of all time, and Andre 3000 is one of the greatest rappers ever. How can kids not know about Outkast? And a few songs on the radio? Speakerboxxx/The Love Below was HUGE when it came out

They had one huge unoffensive song that had crossover appeal that a few people still harbor nostalgia for regardless if it was very good in the first place but it reminds them of a better time in their lives. And they're black.

I kind of cynically thought that the nostalgia aspect was the driving factor (since I didn't get them originally), but must say I don't know what their being black has to do with anything. Even being cynical are people really that shallow? Are they that laden with "white guilt"? Or what?

Outkast was huge with white people a decade ago. Why is it a shock that people don't find them relevant today, especially the Coachella crowd?

"Hey Ya" was the equivalent of "Who let the Dogs Out" in it's day, and that's nothing to be proud of. Outkast is the Black Eyed Peas with a bit of cred amongst the white indie crowd.

For me Outkast is one of the best hip hop groups ever. They went in musical directions that no other hip hop group ever tried at the time. I considered them musicians and not just rappers.

My point of reference has nothing to do with Hey Yeah. They're earlier material was ridiculously soulful, melodic, and lyrically thought provoking.

If you aren't really familiar with the group I would suggest checking out ATLiens

Keep in mind that was 1996 and now out of context ...sort of ... they basically created a new sub genre with that record that's been imitated countless times. That to me is why they are one of the more historically significant hip hop groups of all time.

later records were explorations into pop radio (with a retro twist)...and they were a huge success. A true american talent.

If you do end up at Coachella, their live show is seriously a treat ... FULL band ..possibly with horns ... it's a big deal.

Is it more shocking that people don't know who OutKast is, or that some middle school idiot made a tumblr about it? Or that BV made an article about the tumblr?

And seriously, no one ever liked or respected OutKast. They were mtv darlings, always played during road rules, so am I supposed to get all nostalgic for that? They sold "hey ya" to the Polaroid corporation. Not impressed. My fat aunt played OutKast at her wedding reception. OutKast were no better than the BaHa men. Pop trash.

And people wonder why no one cares about them anymore.

Uh... this must be where I get off. Are y'all serious? OutKast irrelevant? In relation to what? Danny Brown? A$AP Rocky? OutKast in their heyday were one of the most incisive, political, mercurial acts in hip hop or in music period. Live instrumentation, groundbreaking production techniques, psychedelic visual imagery, and a respect for the past and intention to leverage that respect into an oeuvre that could actually stand the test of time instead of some nihilistic, simplistic, reductive Yeezus bullshit. Y'all young'ns claiming Kanye is the be all and end all need to do some basic research. I'm not asking you to go deep into the origins of hip hop or anything. But it is really a flagrant and brazen expression of ignorance to claim OutKast is a one-hit wonder after 5 classic albums of bulletproof funk-inspired hip hop. "Hey Ya" was the sellout (or did you not understand the video?); "B.O.B", "Rosa Parks", "SpottieOttieDopalicious", "So Fresh and So Clean", "Crumblin' Herb", "Git Up, Git Out" was the real. Unless you are just trolling. In which case, have fun, little ones.

"Or did you not understand the video?"

Are you insinuating that OutKast was merely selling out ironically and we are too stupid to see their clever scamming? OutKast milked the TRL after schoolers for all they were worth. Truly amazing. And they still needed to sell their Hey Ya song to Polaroid? Sure Carson Daley made them a pop group for middle America, but so what?

Anyway back to the original topic: Most coachella goers don't care for rap, and are too young to have seen TRL. OutKast just haven't done anything of merit for well over a decade. Now to drag themselves from the grave of retirement and expect a warm reception from kids who grew up with the post-music video mtv? The audacity!!

Posted by Willy | January 11, 2014 8:43 AM

First of all, the whole things probably a joke. Second, it is possible that teenagers not know Outkast. Speakerboxxxx/The Love Below came out ten years ago. People who are 18 now were 8 then. Teens who like Arcade Fire and Muse might not even like hip hop, so it isn't that surprising they don't know a group, great as they are/were, whose last good album was released ten years ago.

People are excited about Outkast because they had promise at a time when hiphop was starting to get stale. People had a lot of hope for them and for what they brought to hiphop and pop music in general, from a lyrical and artistic point of view. Each album was better than the next, with Speakerboxx/Love Below being a classic... That album was so good that if they didn't follow up with something as good or better, they'd be fucked... which is exactly what happened when Idlewild came out, and it fizzled.

Lord God Almighty.....are you all trolling? You really think "Hey Ya" was their claim to fame?

They were one of, if not THE, most highly regarded Hip Hop groups a DECADE BEFORE that song come out. I'm not even sure that was their biggest hit...."Ms. Jackson" seemed much bigger.

Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik (1994) went Platinum

ATLiens (1996) went 2x Platinum

Aquemini (1998) also went 2X Platinum

Stankonia (2000) went 4x Platinum

THEN there was Speakerboxxx/The Love Below (2003) which went Diamond....this is where you guys came in....but unfortunately this was near the end of their run.

I don't mind that people are don't know who they are, it's that a see a lot of people disregarding them as a novelty act that had one big song and then disappeared. That's extremely disrespectful to them.

I have been enjoying music both as a fan and an active musician for several decades, and I cannot recall a single time that the sales numbers of a particular song or album was ever mentioned in connection to it's quality. This observation extends to my conversations with other musicians, producers, my friends, fans, even journalists. Using sales figures to bolster a claim that an artist has merit or has impacted the art form is kind of like attributing the success of a sports team to their uniform colors or mascot.

It's 2014. The musical taste of anyone that doesn't like rap cannot be trusted. Period. There's POSSIBLY an exception for people who put out canonical records or otherwise wielded enormous influence decades ago, in a specific niche, but it's not like Legs McNeil is posting in the BV Comments. It's just dipshits looking to confirm their own bias and confusion in an echo chamber of retardation. Congratulations, die in a fire. It's fucking OUTKAST. If not them, then who?

As an old dude in his late 30s who considered himself a pretty avid consumer of music in his pre-internet teens, it positively boggles the mind that "kids these days" (particularly ones who think themselves "hip") find it acceptable to be clueless about a high water mark of artistic creativity in the very recent past. Do a damn google or something. We had to extend some effort to find out about the antecedents of the artists of our youth. You couldn't call yourself hip if you didn't know about Zappa, King Crimson, Roxy Music, Shuggie Otis, Gabriel-era Genesis, the Meters, P-Funk, MC5 and a whole host of other iconic figures of music. These are just examples of course; the list of "relevant" artists of the past is literally without end. I can understand that 18 year olds are uninformed, after all nobody can know everything, but when faced with their own ignorance, to fucking brag about it?! Clue yourselves in! Or just walk around with day-glo pacifiers and dunce caps on your heads. I can respect Arcade Fire, Flying Lotus, Tame Impala, Deerhunter, and other modern stuff because these acts clearly know and respect where they come from. Music is a continuum and if our musical memory doesn't extend more than a decade into the past (because of willful and emphatic ignorance), we're doomed. OK, rant/lecture over.

Telling someone they're not hip because they never bought some has been artists albums? That's a marketing tactic used by corporate assholes who make those top ten of all time lists where you just have to buy them all to be in the know. We don't fall for that.

Outkast produced the same crap videos with cars and girls shaking their asses like everyone else in the 90's and 00s—why are you trying to force them down our throats as some amazing artistic force?

Yes, Outkast was a respectable high watermark in hip hop. Just because hip hop had (still has?) such low standards to start with.

And yes, kids are entitled to listen to anything they like especially in the post-MTV age where music can be freely discovered and not spoon-fed by Carson Daly.

Basically both sides on this thread are right, they don't necessarily contradict each other.

Posted by Anonymous | January 11, 2014 6:20 PM

I agree. Sadly MTV always showed a certain type of hip hop with it's videos. I love hip hop, but I feel that the best and most intelligent of the genre was buried, and the gangsta violence/ drug dealing/ ass shakin'/ cars and bling stuff was put to the forefront.

Unfortunately that is what most of middle america views as rap, and black culture in general (not all people, but some).

Andre 3000 was good when he ran that comic book store in "The Shield" and yelled at the drug dealers. Did he also do music or something?

Outkast is the Nickleback of hip hop.

This really is some of the most mindblowing conversation i have ever seen i cant believe that Outkast has been compared to "who let the dog's out" and nickleback. Damn hipsters I hope you enjoy bruno mars or justin beiber, while you are laying "facedown in the mainstream"! oh, and The love below and speakerboxx are on the bottom of the list of greatness that they have produced over the years. I, as well as damn near everyone i know is waiting for the Atlanta Music Midtown lineup annoucement, in hopes to see these kings of the city on a homecoming stage. This festival was a terrible choice for them. PS. the Video below probably has several of you losers in it.

ATLiens / Aquemini / Stankonia are three of the best rap records ever made.

Smgdh at the people acting like Speakerboxx / The Love Below was the group's crowning achievement. jesus christ

As mentioned before: leave your nogo-accs, start playing an instrument or start singing yourself , get an own real taste and find out about the shit your're getting served for .....Outcast is a gay hairdresser, who tries to sing...nothing to be even mentioned in americas most famed popshow,...if he would try. No intonation, no soul no presence..a nothing with a credit of pretening to be gay and black...without beeing it.
