moron who wishes he was indie: oh I'm into bands of the independent persuasion
normal person: oh okay. so have you ever heard of 'you are a sadass liar'?
moron: not since they went mainstream. what a bunch of pathetic sellouts.
normal person: yeahhh.
Indie music consist of bands like Muse, Arctic Monkeys...mainly weird english bands.
-nah man, i'm just indie
You're so hip that you can't call yourself a hipster (because hipster is soooo mainstream) so you call yourself indie.
Typical indies can be seen sporting their AE hoodies, invisible children bracelets, and toms as they spend hours studying for their next AP Government Exam.
Indies listen to music similar to that of hipsters but include bands they make up on their own, such as the Rotten Tomatoes. Some indies don't even listen to "bands" and have moved on to a totally different genre of music that isn't real but is conceptual and psychologically based.
Music made by queer looking skinny kids that wear square framed glasses and knit caps during the summer.
Basically trend whores that claim to be 'independant' but the phrase itself is a category.
All things indie, FAIL AT LIFE.
Me: "No, you turned them down because you're a moron."
