    When I was younger, I used to try

    and fit in with the main crowd. The "cool kids". You would never see me without my Aeropostale t-shirt and plain blue skinny jeans, stick straight or neatly curled hair, and Kelly Clarkson or Maroon 5 albums. Now, I'm not saying any of these things are bad; if that's what you do...

    Help Me, Please.

    I love indie / obscure music. But I mostly listen to indie pop or softer stuff. I also really love Tool, Chevelle & Breaking Benjamin. Can anyone point me in the direction of some good indie bands that are similar, especially Tool & Chevelle. Thanks in advance!

    Spice Up My Playlist!

    I'm lacking in some good and new (to me) indie bands at the moment. While I love a vast variety of genres, it would be great to find more music like Neutral Milk Hotel, Broken Social Scene, Explosions in the Sky or Cursive (circa The Ugly Organ). Suggestions, please!

    Individuality

    I love indie music.... although the title sometimes gets a bit annoying.... because when you say that you like indie over here in england you always get asked "oh so you like the kaiser chiefs and the killers??" (these are both ok bands, but may tastes are much wider...

    Indie Rock Music Rocks!

    Yes ... the labelling does get a bit tedious, but the music I like does all tend to get classified as indie. Current favourites: Conor Oberst & the Mystic Valley Band, Beck's Modern Guild, Band of Horses, BJM, Phoenix Foundation Classics: Stone Roses 1989, Beck Mellow...

    Indie Music Is My Life

    So I'm sixteen, and about a year and a half ago I really started getting into listening to indie music, noticing that the bubble-gum pop so-called "music" that my peers listen to are meaningless. They all sound the same. Anyways, now, I have to listen to music whenever I'm not...

    A Tad Bit Elitist

    This Post Is More Like My "adios" To The Indie Culture Thing.

    Back in 2005 my life changed when I heard my first indie band. From then on I couldn't stop. I needed to know everything about each band resulting in me joining every forum, was on multiple street teams, and for the bands I really loved...I would wait 9 hours at the venue to meet...

    Indie music is my life.

    I listen to it when I'm alone, when I have my earbuds, and at home. I listen to other genres such as techno, post core, metal, hip-hop, I'm open minded to music. Indie music that one that I like the best out of everything. But it really depends on the feel of the song that lures...

    A Love For Indie Music.

    Once upon a time, I was a mainstream ***** (I'm a guy. This is metaphorical of course.). All that mattered to me was getting the "in" things, watching the "in" movies, listening to the "in" music, and the list goes on. All of that changed, on a fateful day a year ago. My...

    who loves indie? i need new bands to listens to.

    . so i decided to make a post! i am quite picky, though. i don't listen to mainstream indie (although, i will forever love two door cinema club). i love underground bands, bands that aren't "out there" yet... anyways! current bands i'm listening to: magic man & new navy.

    Salute To College Radio

    If I hadn't discovered my city's college radio station(s) about a decade ago, I wouldn't have been a fan of indie music. I would have never heard of Crime in Choir, Te, The Big Sleep, The Black Lips, The Selmanaires, Ratatat, Free the Robots, Local Natives, and many other bands...

    Indie Music Or Individual Music?

    Modern indie music is more alternative rock and pop than anything, which DEFINITELY isn't a bad thing, considering it's basically all I listen to, but I'm wondering if this group is for that kind of indie or the "real" indie (indie standing for individual) music, as in they haven...

    Indie Can Be So Many Different Kinds..

    that's what I love about it.. it doesn't has to be something special.. it simply is.. It's not like punk or something.. if you're a punk you "have" to wear special clothes... But you can simply be indie.. It's just soo unconventional.. I love it I love so many bands...
