(v) The act of including your favorite alternative or indie bands into conversation, just to show others that you listen to bands they have never heard of. Similar to name dropping, but mentioning independent bands instead of people.
Mike: "So I was listening to the new Fleet Foxes album the other day...."
Steve: "Who's Fleet Foxes?"
Mike: "Oh, you've probably never heard of them..."
Steve: "God Mike, you're always Band Dropping."
