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.
THE COOLEST INDIE KIDS:
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.

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 (:

Here's a real definition. My best friend is Indie and I'm emo
Indie kids befriend who they want to. I'll be honest most don't like SCENE kids. Because Scene kids generally steal their style. (Jackets, vintage tee's and what-not)
Now they listen to whatever they want, but it is mostly non main stream bands. They love anything independant, not sounding like everything else out there. Happy, not depressed (like screamo) or revolting (like rap)
They do have a unique fashion sense
Because
1) Everyone wants to be scene bright colored makeup overly done hair that exceeds it's limit
Way to many holes on their body and tattoos mostly of stars or guns or something overly trendy
2)Indie kids are very smart. They take pride in knowing what is actually going on in the world instead of the latest gossip on myspace.
They are fun loving and don't always shun people for not listening to their music and vice versa
My best friend listens to bands that I've never heard of but will listen to what I have playing in my car (Lorene Drive, etc)
Now everyone complains that they are stuck up but at least they aren't bitchy like scene kids that obviously follow a code of SCENEYNESS
And when you hang out with a group of people you're all going to dress somewhat alike
Indie kids=Read, write do something abstract and artistic very vintage and dont have to over do themselves with makeup and photoshop to look pretty
Emo kids= Emotional, sometimes dramatic but not always a cutter and not always depressed.
Scen kids= Overly dressed up emo kids, Photoshop and make themselves fake to look pretty colorful make up that should be left to raves only bitchy and egotisical

Originally a fairly cool kid, who wore, did and listened to what they pleased. Dressed in anything that looked cool, from skinny jeans to loose jeans, to established branded polo shirts such as lyle and scott to newer fashions such as allsaints or any make that they personally like. Listened to older bands such as the smiths or more recent bands such as KOL or radiohead. Generally they didn't really care about other peoples opinions apart from their friends. However recently the definition has somewhat changed; Indie kids generally try too hard to be "indie" and try to be different, inadvertently becoming the same as other "indies". The new age indie generally waste a lot of time trying to launch hate campaigns emo's on facebook and the internet, bad-mouthing people who have different tatses and styles.
Examples of different attitudes to other people between new age and old age indies:

Indie kid 1: Oh, have you seen those people listening to top 40 and look at their clothes, they have no individuality!
Indie kid 2: I know, why can't everyone be so unique like us!

(Old school) indie kid 1: Hey, there actually seems to be one or two catchy songs with a beat coming out of the top 40 these days!
(Old school) indie kid 2: yeah, admitedly that kid has a fairly cool shirt too!

n) Indie kids come in many varieties but a few common traits about them are:
-tight pants
-unkept hair (usually a sanctuary for birds and miscellaneous indie items, in city areas rats are common)
-three or more pairs of vans slip-ons (very shitty appearance….with checkers)
-an extensive list of over two thousand songs that they have listened to once on their ipods
-striped sweaters or sweater vests
-striped sweaters for ipods
-share common like for songs utilizing 4 chords and a pentatonic scale solo(gay)
-an acoustic guitar(from target)
-tee shirts with bands you have never heard of and never will.
-snow caps in the dead of summer
-many have moderate to severe acne

Habitat: Their natural habitat is usually the local coffee shop/legion or v.f.w., which they habitually attend on weekends to watch obscure bands. Some indie kids actually watch the bands but most of them come to the shows to smoke in the parking lot with their friends and talk about other indie bands from Britain, also known as the U.K. (because we all know, the more British something is, the more AMAZING it is).

Everyday Life: Obscurity is really the basis of the entire culture. Chances are, if you have an indie friend, they are probably extreme long boarding in downtown Oswego, Illinois while listening to the Kaiser chiefs at this very moment

Diet: Everything an indie kid eats must be one of two things. Vegetarian or organic. Their meals include: tofu wraps
Turkey wraps
Lettuce wraps
Roast beef wraps
Ham and cheese wraps
Sprout and bean wraps
…………..Fuck it basically any wrap will do
overpriced obscure fruit smoothies(ex. Mango pomegranate)
Whole-wheat non-comformist purple red green and black chips
Tuna (without dolphin chunks in it)
Soymilk
Snapple brand drinks

Average Joe: dude, wanna go to the movies this weekend? The new ocean’s movie is out, it looks bad ass

Indie kid: nah dude, im heading to Colorado for the sundance movie festival, mainstream movies are trash, George Bush is brainwashing you…I’d much rather watch movies about lesbian cowboys eating pudding…and eat some organic lettuce wraps…*turns around and plays song on guitar with three chords*

Average Joe: fuckin weirdo…

Indie Kids are generelly aged between 13 and early 20's. More often than not you will find they are pretensious, rude and sarcastic. This is probably because of the fact indie kids are ofen very sharp and very quickwitted. Indie kids can generally come across as pretty horrible unles you take the ime to know them. They can often be seen hanging around East London and Brighton. Then they go off and dance theyre 60s dance moves.

Many indie kids are very artsy and have intrests in things such as drawing, painting, photography, knitting, making clothes etc. All indie kids love to read and have generally read only books you've never heard of i.e A Clockwork Orange. All indie kids have read this book. And all indie kids bum this movie.

Most indie kids wardrobes are made up of Tophshop/Topman and vintage clothes from vintage shops, charity shops, their grannies closet etc. Indie girls generally either have ligh blonde, dark brown or bright red hair. They all have full bangs and they all wear headbands, either with their hair poofed up over the top or low on their foreheads. Indie guys geneally have long messy fair with long messy side fringes and look like they have never brushed it in their lifes.

Then there's the music.
All indie kids bum music WAY too hard. They have theyre MP3/IPods/Old CD Walkmans everywhere with them and are plugged into it constantly. Any indie kid can name a 1000 of theyre faivourate bands and you can gauretnee you'll never have heard of any of them. They tend to hate any band or singer that they consider mainstream (anything in the top 40)
They tend to lisen o bands from back as early as the 1960s. Typical indie kid bands include Bright Eyes, The Long Blondes, The Shop Assistants, The Who, The Beatles, The Shangri Las and The Rascals.

Basically the short of it is; indie kids are clever haughty brats who know to much about everything. They bum their music, they bum their vintage clothing and they bum polotics, art, theyre oher ultra cool indie friends.

Avoid them, unless your ready to be ripped to mental shreds for liking beyonce.
Occaisonoly you get nice shy inide kids. But they are generally very sarcastic and witty along with it.



Regular Kid: Hey, have you heard the new Beyoncé song? Is prety wild isnt it?

Indie Kid: *whilst sipping heir starbucks frappacino and looking at you over their hick indie geek specs* Oh my god, you like Beyoncé! She's so manufactured. Her music isn' wholesome or straight from the soul. Fuck off, go listen to some Gang of Four or The Shop Assistants.

Reghular Kid: Ok

Indie Kids: On second thought.. DONT! Theyre way to good for you!
*Swans on past you on they're topshop shoes and in theyre vintage outfit to go and watch a clockwork orange and have a hardcore discussion about polotics with theyre other indie friends. Before hiting Bethnal Greens hottest indie club to get off with some oher indie kid*

kids who listen to indie music. generally elitist, white upper-middle class males who get pissed when anyone starts talking about music. they are obsessed with finding bands no one has heard of, only to claim they hate them once they make it big. ex: modest mouse, franz ferdinand(sp?), the shins. now only listen to music they found on purevolume.com, or college radio. they like bands like Ambulence LTD, death from above 1979, and kill hannah. but not anymore, because someone else knows about them. general attitude of punks, but less angry at the government and more angry at everyone else.
"I'm more entitled to listen to this, because i found it first. go listen to good charolette and 50 cent, you pillow biter!"
