I used to not mind it but in the U.K, I think it's getting out of control. Every month there is a new flavor of the month band called 'the somethings' who churn out another album of samey boring indie and all the magazines tout it as revolutionary or compare them to the sex pistols or the Beatles, even call them pop poets and then the next month they forget all about them or call the ****. When will people stop believing the music medias hype because they just seem to fall for the same old **** over and over.
Stop being so damn tame. Stop trying to be a look like average boring joes with regional accents. I want some escapism and passion. I've never scene such conformists in my life .
Will NME and all it's seed stop hyping formulaic bands bands the throwing them away. Like factory produced condoms.

I just had to get that out.

Try living in Texas, and hating modern Country.....The CMAs were on recently, so I hade to hear about mediocre artist after mediocre artist.

You probably mean all these bands NME label "indie" because they are too stuck up to refer to them as pop or pop-rock.

The only redeeming feature of NME is they've been championing Gallows who can be pretty sweet.

Better yet, live in North Carolina...we have so many piss-poor metalcore/screamo bands it's mind-boggling. And what's worse is I like metalcore...but this state is ruining it for me...

For y'all have knocked her up.

I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

1. You try to hard.
2. THAT is the worst simile I've seen in a long time
3. There are home-made condoms now?

I'm from South Carolina, so I'm in the same boat there. Every band sounds the ****ing same to me, I can't ever tell the difference. Although I'm sure they could say the same to us...

Yeah, Indie and "Indie" are two different things. You're thinking of pop-rock that's been labeled indie because it's "trendy." In reality, Indie is stuff like The Pixies, Sonic Youth, even Neutral Milk Hotel. That's good music, not that **** that they make into a packaged product and sell to millions who'll forget it the next day.

I wrote the thread in under 30 seconds at whim. If anything I try hard enough.
P.s Their have been homemade condoms since at least several thousand years, they received much use in classical brothels. Look it up.

It's not that you hate "indie" bands.


They really hate you, they are out to get you, they become popular just to spite you. They want you to commit suicide. It's their only purpose in life.


Seriously though, you are intolerant and have a persecution complex.

I was bickering about this in language today. I maintain that the majority of indie bands are essentially the same. Other people don't.

But I seriously can't tell the difference between who sings what these days. I'm not very hip with new music.

The power to feel with others give.

Is this some sort of recognition? Some sort of show of respect?


I could definitely respect the respect you have for me, but then I would be disrespecting those how have disrespect for me...

I don't see the problem here. You hate them because of popularity?
I don't get it. Do you have a need to be different just to be different?

You could say that about every genre.

To be honest, I sort of get through indie bands in a similar fashion.
Who cares if they only last a month if that month is good?

Where at in North Carolina?

I'm from Asheville and all I ever hear is really piss-poor countrys wannabes. Alesana is about the only screamo band I can think of from NC and they're actually good.

Eh, not everyone has the same music tastes as you do, which is what makes music interesting. They can like it, and you don't have to. I just don't care what people listen to. I don't live in Britain but I have heard NME is usually not a "good" music magazine?

NME used to be a very credible weekly, but recently it has become somewhat dumb, glorifying the most exasperating bands, and glorifying them week after week after week. Also they seem to be convinced the Libertines were the second coming of Jesus.

No one cares, stfu, and close this piece of crap

EDIT: Look beyond the mainstream for music if you don't like what's played on regular music channels/stations. It ain't that difficult

The Gallows are bollocks. And they ruined a song by The Ruts. The bastards.


And on topic, I like a lot of indie. It's what I was into before I got into punk. And I wouldn't have got into punk if I hadn't got into indie
FUCK YOU! GET PUMPED!

Yeah, Gallows blow hard.

Yeah, I have to say Neutral Milk Hotel is an amazing Indie band that is completely non-mainstream since they don't exist any more.

all current mainstream indie bands sound like Franz Ferdinand, The Libertines, The Arctic Monkeys or a combination of the three, now those three bands, in my opinion, are good but the remakes are not. NME do what they do to sell magizines. I don't like it so I don't read it, I can't understand why you care what they print if you don't read it.

Edit: I didn't mean every indie band I meant the NME indie ones
If you have something in you sig about how bad rap music is or quotes from other users saying how great you are, chances are I don't care for you as a person.
