Why?

Out of your list, I like the Hives best. Out of any other indie band(in the style you seem to be focused on), I'm gonna have to say I like Bloc Party best.
Telecaster - SG - Jaguar
Princeton Reverb, Extra Reverb
P-Bass - Mustang Bass
Apogee Duet 2 - Ableton Suite

hum I like The Wombats

and it's the maccabees

but what about Forest City Lovers or SSLYBY? boooz

They're all the same - that's the problem with indie...

Check out some Elbow, Arcade Fire and Gomez - a few of the small number of indie bands who actually stand out.

bloc party


most of those bands are all 1 s-hit wonders, also arctic monkeys are fine but every1 loves them which is bad
#11
Haven't heard a couple of those in a loong time. The Wombats and Good Shoes pretty popular now I take?

My mind is slowly getting warped to actually liking some Pigeon Detectives stuff thanks to Burnout Paradise and their rather awful soundtrack.

Bloc Party deserve the most attention of those bands though.

Why do we feel it's necessary to yak about bullsh*t in order to be comfortable?

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

what a terrible list, well indie is terrible either way


Mostly - there are a few exceptions, but I get the idea that anything that isn't *METAL* doesn't get a look in with you...

The Hives as they are the only ones i like from the list.

i like how threads like this only get the attention of people who have some sort of prejudice against the subject matter. it's only these kinds of threads that they respond to.

reminds me of when food is left out and an hour later, ants have already found it.

oh yeah, all those bands are pretty awful.
#17
out of those bloc party, but given the choice i still probably wouldn't listen to any of them.

The Cribs or Bloc Party. The rest embody what is truly dire about modern British pop that's been dressed up as "indie".
Happy, lost and still unaware.

Bloc Party. I quite like The Pigeon Detectives as well. That's not a great list though.

i kinda wish we all had a penis and vagina instead of buttholes

i mean no offense to buttholes and poop or anything

Rest in Peace, Troy Davis and Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis and Eric Garner and Mike Brown

Bedouin Soundclash.

Although I think they're a ska band? Anyway, from that list, they're the only band I could stand to listen to.

Friends, applaud the comedy is over.

These metal fans (who flame our board) will never learn that most of the posters here are smarter than them.

After playing guitar hero yesterday, I spent most of my day reminiscing my childhood by listening to metallica.

On topic, there are a few bands there I like, but I haven't bothered hearing most because of their lousy reputation.

This post shall single handedly destroy all my indie cred.
