Indie kids are pretentious and sometimes a bit cocky. But thats okay. They listen to indie bands, the more obscure the better. They're often seen sporting blazers, even when outside of school. They are pretty much the opposite of emo in a sense that they stick to a personal style. A lot of indie girls have fringes and wear obnoxiously bright lipstick. Most of them, despite their distance from the mainstream, carry around iPods. While other people are talking about how "sick the show was", they will be heard talking about how "annoying the singer sounded". A lot of them also seem to have a fascination with the United Kingdom and it's culture.
The Kaiser Chiefs? They're so yesterday, you wanker.

An indie kid is so individual that they spend their time alone in their "individual" room, Listening to all their "individual Music" Through Their large oversized "individual Headphones" whilst looking up their "individual" clothing websites, whilst brushing their individually styled hair, which they got cut at that really "original" hairdressers behind their local individual bookstore.
they're that individual (:

This is what everyone thinks indie is in Australia.

kids who wear bright stripped shorts above their knees no matter what the weather, tee-bar shirts (all v-necks) with stuff on them like santa monaco 97, high socks vans or globe and always vans shoes, coloured rubber braclets, flat caps with brands they wouldnt have a clue of, always no matter where they are they have either a longboard, cruiser or penny board.

Hangout Spots:
Local carparks for longboaring
a McDonalds that everyone goes to

Public transport areas

Used Words:
Fuck, Sick Cunt, Shit, Bro, Oi and Hit up.
Indie Skater - "Oi bro wanna go and hit up the fucking carpark"
Indie Skater 2 - "Whoa you sick cunt at this time of day?(2:00 in the afternoon)"

An indie kid is a particular person (mostly male) who like nothing more than to drink milk and to kick cats for the fun of it in their free time normally they are commonly found in Sixth form photography classes doing anything they can to stop you getting on with your work (lol). They have also recently taken a shine to prancing around their local town doing the same dance as seen in the new 'Creep' video featuring Nicki Minaj.
Sam - "Woah, look at that kid over there!"
Jake - "Holy shit he must be called Ben Sanderson or something, what an indie kid!" ;)

the cool kid who finds him/herself through non-mainstream music and untrendy clothing...i think i just made up a word...but anyway.

the indie kids listen to a lot of college stations, local bands, and usually have their friend's homemade music on their ipod...because most of their friends are musicians and they are cool like that.
velle and i were sittin there on the grass in the park listening to midlife and the stills before we started to jam, but while we were sorting through our second hand clothing finds we just bought.

and before we left the house, we trimmed eachother's bangs.

they're jagged and uneven now...whoops.

we're absolutely ill.

Not an emo.
-indie kids listen ___ (cannot name any bands because if someone knows who they are then they are not indie, and wear vintage clothes.
-emo kids listen to screamo music and wear black clothes.
oh yeah totally the same? i dont think so....
anyways indie kids wear granny clothes and like to stand out and be different.
indie kid: hey emo kid what did you do last night?
emo kid: oh nothing much. slit my wrists again.
indie kid: cool. i painted my nails and customised my grannys top from the 50s, so vintage.
emo kid: wow i wish i was an indie kid.

The indie kid refuses to listen to music that is mainstream apart from artists they see as good. Even if this artist is mainstream the indie kid will still believe nobody else appreciates their music properly.
The indie kid doesn't wear big label clothes (with the exception of All Star Converse, their excuse being 'They didn't used to be cool.') and thinks he is better than everybody else because he has good taste in music. He will also usually pride himself on his superior knowledge in things other than bands, such as films, webcomics etc. And even refuse to be friends with people who like music he doesn't like. When he tells people they have bad taste in music and they then reply 'That's you're opinion.' he will disagree, and he likes them to argue for the band in question, not palm him off with a 'That's just your opinion.'
The stereotypical indie kid (male) is shy and skinny with dark grown out hair (not to be mistaken for emo hair, which is cut and styled with it's bangs, indie hair is just pure laziness to get it cut) who wears large t-shirts with obscure band names printed on them and jeans.
The indie kid is usually a bit of a nerd, spending alot of time on the computer, in the library or playing his guitar. He will try and make people love the music he listens to and then (rightfully) accuse them of trend-hopping when this has happened.
Poor, Unsuspecting Pop Kid- Coldplay are my favourite band!
Pretentious Indie Kid- You like Coldplay. Coldplay are a crap band.
PUPK- No, they're not! That's just you're opinion!
PIK- I hate it when you just say it's my opinion. You should give me reasons as to why Coldplay are good. But they're not, they're crap. They're generic etc. (and he rambles on about Coldplay)
PUPK- Who do you like then?
PIK- Well, I like The Decemberists, Broken Social Scene, Stars are OK, The Olivia Tremor Control, The Beta Band, Dexter Freebish (and he rambles on about bands he likes)
PUPK- Who?!?
