If you're over the age of 25, you may look at Tyler the Creator and his Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All crew like some kind of skate-park rat horsemen of the cultural apocalypse. Aren't they the kids who run around talking about homophobia and dick cheese and slappin' bitches?

Well, yes and no. They do have an affinity for colorful language and touchy subject matters, but they're not doing it for no good reason. Tyler and his playful pals are kind of satirical geniuses, and if you take the time to actually listen to their lyrical content, you'll find the messages run much deeper than schoolyard nicknames and common denominators.

Dillon Francis' Top Five Trolls of All Time

Categories: Heads Up, list

Wikipedia defines a "troll" as "a person who sows discord on the Internet by starting arguments or upsetting people... with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."

Some trolls are less evil than others, though. Some trolls just want to lie about their identity and give you free tacos. Some trolls are just Dillon Francis.
