If you have been on the internet for a long enough time, and have even a cursory interest in music, you will almost certainly be familiar with two sites: Soundcloud and Bandcamp. These sites, to paraphrase Shakespeare, are two houses alike in dignity, but different in name, and mainly serve as a streaming service for independent artists who don’t have an audience and are trying to build one up.
Now, I am no music journalist (OR AM I????) but even I know the distinction between Souncloud and Bandcamp. For the most part, Soundcloud appears to cater largely to rappers, while Bandcamp attract hipster-type indie artists. And that, basically, is the premise of a meme you’ve probably seen bouncing around Twitter and Instagram lately, called “Soundcloud vs. Bandcamp.” And, as far as memes go, it’s a pretty great one. So, tif you want to prove that you are a serious person who seriously cares about music, check out all of the best Soundcloud vs. Bandcamp memes that the internet has to offer:
