It can be independant.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.
It can be indie, but it's seldom that indie records make it that far up the charts (there are a few exceptions though, so don't get down about it). It's just that the big record labels have so much more distribution than an indie label, it's hard to overcome that.
