A commonly used word in the dictionary of the Hipster.
Used to define something that 'you wouldn't understand' or 'probably never heard of'.
Hipster: "Have you heard the new Peter Bjorn and John album?"
Friend: "Who?"
Hipster: "Figures. It's pretty obscure."

Not mainstream; weird. Trying to be different; a rebel.
Nick Delahaye is not mainstream, he is obscure because he listens to crappy music.
