Sounds about right

Maura Johnston over at Idolator has discovered that some users of Urban Dictionary--the crowdsourced slang lexicon that's helped millions of people figure out what "Superman dat ho" means, probably to the detriment of their opinion of humanity--are working to give the word "brokencyde" a different definition than simply "an unbelievably shitty band that combines the worst aspects of hip-hop and hardcore into something even worse than its constituent parts and oh yeah they're also complete misogynists." It's sort of like Dan Savage's "santorum" campaign, except instead of being directed at a troglodytic "family values" asshole in the Senate it's aimed at terrible dudes who wear shutter shades and hate women.

I won't ruin Maura's scoop, but let me just say that "apt" barely begins to cover it.
