I don't about you guys, but pretty much all the Indie kids who live near me use the word 'rave' out of context. The definition of rave from Wikipedia-

"The term in use since the 1980s for dance parties (often all-night events) where DJs and other performers play electronic dance music. Rave parties are often associated with the use of "club drugs" such as ecstasy, LSD, amphetamines and, more recently, ketamine and 2C-B."

Indie Kids don't listen to rave, they listen to 'nu-rave', which is basically Indie (The Klaxons, that kind of crap). The don't last all night, they don't do drugs. I wish people will stop using this word out of context, they don't even know what a rave is. Dancing and being drunk off a single bottle of WKD is not raving.

Is it just round my area, or does this piss anyone else off?

Yea, we actually have proper full-on raves round my place, a nd all the scene kids go to a "Rave" where they sit down and talk about Elliot Minor until 9pm, before they have to go home because it's getting late.

I hate the 'nu-rave' thing and people saying like "yeah we're gonna go and have a rave" which is actually them dancing to 'indie' music.

When in actual fact NU-RAVE IS NOT RAVE ARRRGHHHH.

It really gets on my nerves, just because a band has a ****ing synth doesn't make it rave.

Apparantly the Klaxons called themselves 'nu-rave' once, as a joke, and then a load of fans took it seriously and started that subgenre.

Yep, we get it. Pisses me right off I must say. However, the definition of 'rave' the people round here use is one of standing in someone's living room playing crap dance music through a Line 6 Spider II.

To be fair that was still an awesome party. Rowarth was amazingly destructive, Tom called Alex a f*cking fat sh*t and so on.

As good as they are to me, they're not rave at all.

Deary me.

We can't change the little indie kid's opinions though.... shame really, they look quite dumb.
They also wear 'rave' clothing that is pretty stupid.
'OH HAI, PLAIN COLOURED T-SHIRT WITH A SLOGAN IN NEON IS MUH RAVE CLOTHINGZ'

It would become another "wacky" activity for one of their "raves". I'm thinking more of along the lines of taking them captive and leaving them out in the rain.

I'd like to go to a rave sometime. Maybe take a bit of MDMA or something similar.

Uh, that's the point.

The irony seems to be lost on a lot of people...


To be fair though, a lot of music-related terms are over-used. For example: "Oh dude, that was so metal!".

'It' wasn't constructed of any metallic elements or alloys. Neither was it a piece of music characterised by thick, heavily distorted guitars, punchy drums and fast guitar or bass solos.

well personally i hate them because they they took over the goth club here and filled it with their ****ty EBM and Futurepop.

As for thes "Indie Raves" never experienced ones, but that sounds lame as hell, I'm a big fan of real raves though, not so much for the music as for the drugs and sex.

No, the point is that it's supposed to be the second wave of rave, like nu-metal was supposed to be the second wave of metal. It's supposed to draw influence from and add to rave.

Exactly. I suppose by their standards that Children of Bodom are nu-rave Although they will not have heard of them because all these little fcukers listen to is mainstream sh!t. Oh and TS, heroes FTW

no it isn't especially when you go to a club to dance to deathrock and REAL industrial music and you get that instead.

Nah, I disagree. It has elements of everything, mostly classic Rave and rock. I don't think its fair to call it nu-rave.

I like it, but it should be heavier. An Aphex Twin-esque spin on it would work great.

No, the point is that it was supposed to be an irony, coined by music producers and journalists at the time of the development of a new type of modern rock, featuring bands like Klaxons, LCD Soundsystem etc. It was a spoof and mickey-take of the trend of 'nu-' genres. The popularity of the term was spread primarily by Klaxons, who despite completely disagreeing with the term they had invented, decided to market themselves as it for irony's sake. In an interview they said "I guess our success is down to our inventing a genre then having nothing to do with it." or something to that end.
