Reddit user “steakknife” posted the above comic strip featuring Bill Watterson’s beloved comic icon and frequent car logo pisser Calvin talking to his tiger pal Hobbes about the predicament of rebellion in pop culture. In 1992 pretty much all the rockstars were 45 or in Pepsi commercials. Today they’re 70+ or dead and vaporwave artists are heavily sampling early 90’s muzak—so, 10 points to Calvin on this one.
