It's almost as arbitrary as the word emo, in my mind. There is no traceable emo scene. It kind of just appeared. I used to figure indie just meant independent, although it used to seem to skew mostly towards rock. Now I really can't even answer that anymore lol.

Menomena and Neutral Milk Hotel rock though. Always nice to see people mention them.

i always kinda thought indie just referred to a more underground style of rock that never really caught a mainstream following, but even thats debatable. usually nowadays if someone says "that band is indie" i'll go along with it and not agrue cuz hell if i know what makes them indie

See, that's almost what I thought also, however, I then hear people refering to it as a genre, with all their own very contradicting ideas of it.

Anyway, I don't care either, just thought I would try and jump start this thread and get people to bicker about their useless oppinions.

[COLOR=TEAL][SIZE=1][B]In most cases I believe that Indie music is the more 'mature' side for people who choose to listen to the alternative music genre. Don't get me wrong though, I still like some of the metal bands like Disturbed and Dimmu Borigr, it just there are times when I want to find out how crap the world is without losing my ear-drums :D. My list of Indie goes something like this:


And the songs for each would be this, Radiohead - Paranoid Android, Coldplay - Scientist, Starsailor - Love is Here and Idleawild - You Held the World in your arms.[/B][/SIZE][/COLOR]

[size=1][color=red] I have one band for you and that is all.


I, as Tony, have not the clue what "Indie" is. I don't even know what it used to be. . .only that it sounded like rock I thought.[/size][/color]
