Indie Kids are essentially the anti-emo.The Indie Kid is at war with the emo because the scum of the earth stole our Converse and made it a symbol of being a twat who likes to take 20 million self shots in the bathroom while covering one of their eyes with their over conditioned hair. Unlike the rather good-looking shoe that it once was.

Another difference between Indie Kid's and Emo's is that we are usually happy, whereas an emo would probably be crying on his own in a dark corner. The main reason we stay happy is because our music does not tell us to slit our wrists or pile on the burdens of other people.

Indie Kids are called Indie Kids because of the music they listen to. Not because of the clothes they wear.

Indie is also it's own genre of music. Not a sub-genre of rock. Although many bands have chose to form cross-over genres.
Indie Kid: Just listened to some Pegasus Bridge. OMG those guys make me happy.

Emo: Just listened to My Chemical Romance. I might just go kill myself.

Another label placeed upon people, to either make them feel elite, to degrade, ect. the "indie" scene arose from the counter culture of the 60s & 70s. a decesndent of Punk rock scene, indie arose from the alt rock scene of the 80's and 90's. indie(the music) is now a more expiramental form of either garage rock. while the idea(in the scene) is to non-conform(which in fact is immpossible)its become a label, which allows society to degrade and put limits on human potential.
any other label used to describe someone who conforms to anothers idea of nonconforming by wearing vintage clothes, vans/converse, showing an obssesion with nature, "indie" rock, coffee and nonconforming. example of the Indie Kid

Indiekids come in all forms and fashions. What seperate them from the flock is their sense of entitlement and the belief that they are, in some way, smarter or more enlightened than their peers. Often this sene of superiority stems from their taste in music.

They will smugly admit to having an "eclectic" or "alternative" taste in music, but what they really mean is that what they listen to is better than what you listen to. If confronted with bands they have never heard of, they will vaguely dismiss them and run home to check them out on Pitchfork.

Indiekids will claim to read books, but are often simply reading reviews or lists of books compiled by other indiekids. When fouled up in a conversation about a specific book by a four-eyes or member of the literati, the indiekid will claim that they are mixing up plots, characters or details with other books they have just read. If not pressed on the matter they will become offended and ragequit.

Fond of irony, but lacking the ability to define what irony is, the indiekid is often at a loss when having a tête-à-tête people who use the word ironic ironically.

Indiekids may later evolve into hipsters or scenesters.
Joe: "Hey, you hear the new Bloody Beetroots album?"
Indiekid: "No, well, of course I've heard it, but I just didn't feel it. Too commercial and well-polished. Plus I've really been getting into IDM again lately..."
Joe: "IDM? Never heard of it."
Indiekid: "Oh, that's no surprise, it stands for Intelligent dance music."
Joe: "Oh for f*cks sake."

Indie's think they're all so fucking individual. Indie-viduality has become a scene, and all these indies are identical. They're always trying to be different but it leads to failure fashion on
You will find them, rolling ciggys, drinking coffee, drinking goon, riding bicyles, being vegeterian, having perfect vocabulary, saying darling, darling, darling, watching the Virgin Suicides, shopping at opshops and finding oh so fashionable outfits that your dead great grandmother used to wear cause its so vintage, having an extremely strange interest in the UK and everything about it, using polaroids or film cameras or fisheyes or just loving photography... Indie's listen to the Smiths, Joy Division and weird psychedelic shit.

they used to love, they used to love black rimmed glasses, they used to listen to MGMT, but they became too indie for all of it. Indies will always hate anything in the top 20. Indies will always ask "WHAT IS INDIE?!?!?!" But they do know what indie is..
REUBEN (indie #1): come over?
KATE (indie#2): i'll ride over there, we'll catch a coffee?
REUBEN (indie #1): Okay sure then we can go savers?

KATE (indie#2): Okay darling!

BRIAN (Normal kid): fucking indie kids.

indie stands for independent and thats wots indie kids are they give a toss about people who cant accept them people say they try to act cool but everyone does anyway people say they have no taste in clothing either the people sayin this possibly wear emo clothes,sports wear for casual wear or the tacky pop diva look.
most people hate the indie kid they find it weird and different or they cant handle independence and freedom indies give.

There are several key components to being an indie kid.

1: Listen to a million bands that no one has ever heard of. The less well-known they are, the cooler you become. Nothing makes you cooler than rattling off a list of obscure indie bands to someone slightly less hipster than you are. Remember, all well-known bands are sell outs.

2: Commit yourself to being different, specifically for the purpose of being more hipster than your peers. Good ways to be different include wearing flannel shirts, having shaggy hair, and making Juno-style, sarcastic jokes. Basically, just look and act like a hipster.

3: You ARE better than everyone else, and make sure they know it. Be sure to roll your eyes at anyone who doesn't know of all your obscure indie bands. Be sure to brag about the books you read and your favorite wine. Be a pretentious snob.

4: ???

5: Profit!
Indie kids are people who want to be different, but aren't mature enough to know how yet.

A new generation of people who try to fit in by not fitting in.
Behind all the eyeliner, the gloves, the zebra striped leggings and the discarded t shirt, i could see beyond her indie kid dream.
