originally it meant music signed to independant record labels

these days it means music inspired by the sort of music which was signed to independant record labels.

ie: singer that cant sing properly, rhythm guitar based, very casual lyrical style, etc

But seriously...


Indie rock began as a form of rock music performed by bands who never cared much for being rich and famous, but rather preferred to make music that they wanted to create, usually with their own original, unique, and distinctive sound. It used to be a form of music you could listen to when you were tired of hearing the same bands on TV all the time who all sound the same.


Now, so called "Indie rock" is almost exactly the opposite of what it was intended to be.

And you can thank Fuse for that.

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

Says my music is indie. My music is...

Pearl Jam, Alice in chains, Black label society, Pantera, Rage against the machine,Faith No More,Temple Of The Dog,Stone Temple Pilots.

Yar verry indie . Yeh hes a dumbass!


Your music is good.

I would personally say that indie is probably somewhere between pop and general rock, but based on bands that are classed as indie now, there is a huge variation. Just look at how different Radiohead are to the Fratellis...

my cousin is in a few indie bands. Let's just put it this way: he's weird as hell and he has a second job.

Indie music is actually any band owned by an indipendant record label.

Although people call a lot of this new crap "indie".

Usually bands that care about music, and not for the money and fame, are Indie Bands. The music is sort of a Rock style pop music.

indie isnt a genre.

indie is a circumstance.

haha, this reminds me of a person i talked to a few days ago.

Me: indie isn't a genre.
Her: bullshit.
Me: elaborate. i'll prove you wrong.
Her: indie is music with acoustic guitars, slow lyrics, and a meaning.
Me: you're pretty dumb.

or another.

Girl: i like indie.
Me: i like music.
Girl: yeah, but i like indie music only.
Me: cool? like what?
Girl: hellogoodbye.
Me: please go slice your ear off.

moral of the story, girls dont know shit about music.
