Someone who strives to be a indie/hipster but in reality they don't know anything about the genre or way of life. They claim to know indie music when in reality their main source of indie are websites that feed them what they claim to be the "best indie around". They are constantly harassing their real indie/hipster friends for music seeing as their findings are inadequate. They also claim to dressing indie and try talking about indie to others when they have no actual knowledge about the genre except what they've stolen from a real indie/hipster.
1. wannabe indie/hipster: hey what band is that?

(2 days later)

wannabe indie/hipster: Hey! I downloaded all of their albums!

Hipster: Wow, You're such a wannabe.


Wannabe indie/hipster: check out this website where I get my music from. Its really cool.

Hipster: Don't be a wannabe.

someone who thinks that by acting indie, they will be cool. in reality, they are not cool, and never will be, no matter how "indie" they become. This person harasses all their real indie/hipster friends, trying to steal their ideas, style, and music tastes, when really, they get their music from the latest episode of gossip girl, buy their flannels from abercrombie, and refuse to wear anything but real gold jewelry (preferably with diamonds or from marc jacobs). this person probably drives an audi convertible, but keeps her fedora in view in the rear window to up her hipster factor. this person spends their spare time googling "how to be indie" or having their friends take indie hipstamatic iphone pics of them to make their profile picture. If this person is a girl, she probably spends a lot of time complaining about white girl problems.
That girl is so indie, look out her in that dirty flannel...oh wait, is that from abercrombie? Is she listening to fall out boy?? What a wannabe indie!

Break down the word and it's pretty much self explanatory. A wannabeindie is someone who tries too hard to be all indie. A lot of wannabeindies will actually pretend that its a joke and they are sort of mocking wannabeindies, when deep down they want to be indie too. A difficult concept, I know, but who doesn't cringe when they see someone's facebook pictures and see how desperately hard they have tried to come across as incredibly alternative. I can tell you something, the quest for 'indieness' is becoming quite mainstream..
lol at the daisychain.. what a wannabeindie
