C is most definitely Christina Aguilera. The assless chaps? Dead friggin' give away. I don't think these are flash cards for hipster children, but who would make the flash cards for the sons and daughters of us indie rock folks? I'll start it off with A-A Tribe Called Quest.

EDIT: I see someone beat me to it. Apologies.

So B could either be Beulah, Belle and Sebastian, or Broken Social Scene. None of whom are that easily identifiable.

Sure, they're the only band with 50 people in it. Of course, they couldn't all fit on the little card...

Also, you might be surprised how easily identifiable most bands can be with just a handful of pixels.

Or Beta Band. Or for easily identifiable purposes, Blonde Redhead.

I think for a true hipster card series you basically just put a couple guys with beards on all the cards and let people decide for themselves who they are. Because that's pretty much what it'll look like anyway.

Don't forget the black-frame glasses and ironic Girl Scouts T-shirts.

I thought it was David Crosby. But there were no hippie stink fumes coming off him like Pigpen on peanuts.

C could be Cat Power; just show a girl with a perpetual raincloud hovering over her head, LOL.
