Yeah, indie kids all look the same.
But so do all emo kids, scene kids, ghetto fab. kids, american eagle snobs, hardXcore freaks, granola hemp queens, preps, jocks, posers of all sorts, etc.
If you find something you love (music, fashion, etc.) then you stick with it.
Most Indie kids are "indie" cause they have their own style/fashion, just like the bands they listen to (not having a huge record label).
Lay off, fuckers.
Get a life; find something you love and stick with it.

Joe: you like this?
indie kid: yeah, and it's only like 3 bucks. do it up.
joe: but it doesn't look really cool.
indie kid: who the fuck cares, u like it, it's 3 bucks. so buy it.
"omg, it's imogen kotsoglo, the definition of indie"
"agreed, what an indie kid!"
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.
Local carparks for longboaring
a McDonalds that everyone goes to
Public transport areas
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)"
Indie kids convosation
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.
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)
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.
Self-righteous, green tea drinking dumbasses who incessantly try to "out-deep" each other by seeing who can put more Elliot Smith quotes on their myspaces and trying to pass it off as being original. They typically can't distinguish the difference between owning a guitar (typically acoustic) and being able to play one. Anyone else's taste in music is inferior to theirs especially if it doesn't have a reference to working out their causeless angst through cigarettes, coffee, and wearing stupid shoes. They're like paper cuts, no one likes them, but as foul as they are, no one cares enough about them to acknowledge them as anything important longer than about 22 seconds.
Chef's Mom: Oh lawdy, it's a succubus comin' to get mah baby!
Chef's Dad: Calm down the damn succubus and the potatoes a damn minute nahw, woman! Christmas, it's an indie kid!
Chef's Mom: Oh hang on, I'll go see if I have tree fiddy!
Chef's Dad: Dammit, woman, that's why the monstah keeps comin' back, 'cuz you keep giving him tree fiddy nahw!
Listen to unmanufactured smaller labelled music - the blatently obvious bit.
they like bands such as : the strokes franz ferdinand and the cribs ( for those who werent too sure)
Many indie kids will quite easily be mistaken for an emo or scene kid - this is due to scene and emo's being newer groups, which have taken many indie attributes eg- drainpipes, blazers, polkadots and beads
Unlike emos, indies are happy and dont over do the hair ( too much spray/gel)
unlike scene kids, indies dont act childish or obsessive
indie kids can often seem arrogant, though many are not, and are actually very friendly people.
indie kids like to find bands that others have not heard of yet, and can get easily annoyed when people rave about that band once it is in the public eye (eg - arctic monkeys)
indie kids are generally quite smart and do tend to be well kept (like to look quite good, but not overdone)
indie kids like to be a little different, but more importantly like to be themselves.
i suppose myself, an indie kid would wear: drain pipe or straight legged trousers, and a blazer. my hair is parted, but not over done or covers and eye like an emo. i wear white trashed converse
but this is purely because there my favourite shoes and are so comfy because theyve been worn so much :)
a good example of a scene kid, would be very the same, but there hair would be much over done and they may wear make up ( boy ) there myspace will be well overdone, like be set out completely different and would have a good 300 friends, none of which they know, but would be other scene looking kids.
an emo : would wear either looser or drainpipes jeans and probably black converse, generally any colour but white. black shirts, infact as much black as posible, hair would be parted and go over there eye, and hair may be spiked at back. will be depressed and can be quite arrogant and morbid.
