"Indie" has become a vague term. It stands for a type of music, a type of lifestye, and even a whole "look".

The Type Of Music:Independantly recorded, on the mellow side(unknown, independant recorded:hip-hop/hardcore/emo bands are <b>not</b> Indie!)

The Look: The Indie look is all about vintage. That means thrift stores, T-shirts of obscure/old bands,Blazers (you wear it over the T-shirt) ripped/tight jeans, shaggy hair, big sunglasses.(think The Strokes. The Strokes lifestyle before becoming famous was the epitome of Indie, they owned nothing that was made after 1980, they were slumming in new york apartments, and some were heavily into Heroin)

The Lifestyle: Most "Indie" kids are: White. Drive old cars. Live together in rented out, very old homes/or shitty apartments, and are extremely poor and slumming. Many indie kids are heavy into drugs. Indie kids are very exclusive with who they choose to hang out with, and sometimes form "Crews". Indie kids sometimes listen to Gangster Rap, sort of as a joke. (haha)

Some bands that have the "Indie" sound, but are technically not Indie because of their popularity are: The Shins, Rooney, Modest Mouse, Hot Hot Heat, The Strokes. Etc.
Type Of Music: <i>Sean</i>:My bands going on tour soon
<i>groupie</i>:oh really? is anything you play on the radio?
<i>Sean</i>:Hell no..we're Indie fuck corporate radio, we're all about the music, not the popularity or money!


The Look: <i>Sean</i>: Fuck I just got a dope ass tweed Blazer at Savers for 10 bucks! I'm gonna wear it over my Deathcab For Cutie shirt!
<i>groupie</i>You're Soo INdie<33!

The Lifestyle: <i>Sean</i>: My parents are filthy rich.. but I moved out into an old ass apartment with 3 friends, we dont have a computer or TV, we get fucked up all day and work just enough to get by, we play guitar and make out with girls that have shaggy hair. We're soo indie!
