i know what it means and what "inde" stands , but sometimes its hard to explain it to some ppl


cant really define indie because there are so many diverse indie bands
I think the popular consensus Is it sounds like "the killers" but thats kinda dumb cause theres all kinds of indie bands

I define indie the same way I define any other genre... mostly bad with a few diamonds in the rough.
My Gear-
Fender Acoustic
Fender JP-90 Bass
Fender American Deluxe Strat Alder (Tobacco Sunburst)

Wish List-
Gibson Les Paul Standard
Marshall Stack
I agree, I thought there Older stuff Was kinda Cool but not latly, But Arent they not really an indie band because thier so mainstream?

if you wanna define it by a mainstream sound it'd be arctic monkeys / vampire weekend.
but thats sooooooo not what indie is about

but arent The Killers on a Major Label

this here is confusion / result of bastardization of the word indie.
it is supposed to mean independently represented, or on an indie label, but it has come to mean both that, as well as a sound, and a movement.
i see it as this generation's punk, i see it as a sort of attitude towards your music, and a mentality.
if you define it by a sound itd be sort of like vampire weekend type tripe, but again, thats not at all how i see indie.
