  • bantwagon, n.

    The Guardian, 24 September 2015:

    But wait, ladies! There is one female DJ: Hattie Pearson, who is let on air at 1am, presumably giving her time to do Moyles’s ironing beforehand. Actually, that’s unfair. To say that Radio X excludes women is to say that having a womb prevents you from listening to Foo Fighters, Courteeners or Muse. Radio X’s problem isn’t that it’s a sexist shed of a station, it’s that riding the humourless bantwagon is just such a mind-numbingly boring experience.
