Someone who is so cool that they cannot interact with the general public for an extended period of time in fear of being sucked in to the wave of pop-culture. Little do they know that they are the new pop-culture. Indie people are by definition, better than everyone else purely because they listen to music with the same things techno music is made with. Indie kids' favorite pastimes include crying, blogging (writing in journals), being in touch with their emotions (which is really just an excuse for the crying), carrying an elitist attitude, crying some more, being very liberal, talking about bands that no one has heard of, crying more, comparing bands with friends to see who knows more, wearing things that make them an "idividual" (really just things that convey their "im too indie for you to even talk to" attitude...these clothes can be found at any local Hot Topic store), crying some more, hating punk rock even though if it wasnt for punk rock there would be no indie music, hating everyone else, judging people based upon music, thinking they know everything, fantisizing about death in poetic fashion, compairing everyday meaningless events... to their life and how the world is made to see THEM speciffically suffer...even though no one cares, crying, never saying theyre indie...because thats just not indie, not ever listening to a band played on the radio or that more than 3 people have heard of even though they all listen to the beatles, and overall just being indie.
Indie music is good...sometimes... but this whole cult of indie-nazis needs to go. So if you listen to this music im sorry if i offended you, unless youre an indie kid in that case...get off urbandictionary.com because more than 4 people have heard about it...YOURE SUBSCRIBING TO POPCULTURE...HURRY...RUN... hopefully no one saw you on this site or else your indie reputation is done and you will have to write 20394 poems without sleep over a course of 3 months in the shower with no water to reclaim your indie status.
"Oh f*ck Im so indie i stare at the sun and pray for death"
"Oh f*ck Im so indie i take showers with my clothes on and write poetry"
"Oh f*ck Im so indie every time someone talks about pop culture I run to my room and cry for an hour"
"Oh f*ck Im so indie i dont eat meat because cows have feelings, but mainly because they're not indie enough for me to consume because they're all conformists, with their black and white"
"Oh f*ck Im so indie that one time i found a 100 dollar bill and used it to give myself papercuts because purcahsing with money is sooo conformist.
"Oh f*ck Im so indie i walked into a room with 3 people in it and proceeded to walk out because one of them was wearing sneakers"
An Indie Kid is not, as many people seem to believe, a prententious twat who will only listen to obscure bands and cusses anyone who dares to like anything in the top 40. An Indie is, in fact, someone whos heart lies with indie, rock, alternative, music like that. You are all thinking of scenesters. An Indie Kid is, by no mean shape or form, a scenester.more...
Indie Boys tend to be skinny, shy, with messy hair and a fringe. The hair must not be confused with emo hair, which is styled using disturbing quantaties of gel, wax, mousse and hairspray. Indie boys just can't be arsed to brush. Skinny jeans are more typical of the scene kid, Indie boys prefer fairly loose fitting denim. A plain t-shirt or shirt are very popular, along with ancient battered converse, in black or blue.
Indie Girls normally have wavy hair that looks bedraggled, and dress not a million miles away from the boys, just with more feminine styles. Indie Girls generally don't really care about their appearence that much, but scrub up pretty darn well, as opposed to a scene girl who is the scum off the earth. Indie girls wear any sort of jeans, comfy and casual t-shirts and the same footwear as the boys.
Another important difference between Indie Kids and scene kids is that indie kids are actually capa...
Indie kids are witty, intelligent kids that wear vintage clothing and like to differ from the norm. I'm not going to give examples of what they wear, because that pretty much defeats the purpose. They wear what they want, and don't give a shit what you think.
Indies are generally happy people, mainly because their music makes you feel like spinning around in a cirle while a smiling man in a white suit throws confetti at you. Indies are very un-emo due to this, and are constantly waging a war with the over-styled emo masses due to the fact that emos stole Converse.
Their attitudes are fickle, and can be passed off as pretentious or rude if you don't get to know them. The guy or girl that stands out and acts like he's better than you, occasionally throwing out a sarcastic comment or two, will usually just be a shy indie not used to being around the wave of pop-culture-people.
Pop-kid: Look at her, she's such a bitch.
Pop-kid 2.0: I know. What's her problem?
Indie Guy: Lay off, she's just a shy Indie Kid.
Category of person; better than emo.
Usually if an indie kid asks you if you like a band you will have not have heard of the band. Indie kids could usually name five hundred bands you've never heard of without breaking a sweat.
There is an underlying war between the indie kids and the emo's this will be because they one. attempted to steal there dress sense but then turn it all black. two. took converse off them. three. made people which are neither an indie kid or emo think that they are one of the same. the indie kids do not like this as they are obviously far superior with better dress sense, hair styles, lifestyles and obviously music taste than the emos.
indie kids may not like to use the word 'indie' to describe themselves anymore as it has been stolen by corporate sellouts who now claim that bands such as embrace, snow patrol and keane are indie.
if you thought that those bands were indie until you read that sentence you are not indie.
indie kids care about they way they look; they just don't go on about it. in fact they probably spend as much time on there appearance as they do seeking out unknown bands.
they can be found at local gigs that only cost about £4 to get into or at the bigger indie gigs which cost at most about £9 to get into.
indie are the anti-emo. indie are not close to emo... one major difference is that indie kids have better hair.
indie yuppie: i like indie. i was listening to embrace earlier.
indie kid: that's not indie. that is what the capitalists have wrapped up nicely and put into a carefully manfuactured package with a big stamp on it saying 'indie' which does not make it indie. go listen to bromheads jacket.
indie yuppie: who..?
indie kid: ....don't even talk to me.
Elitist, liberal (not Democrats, they're all Libertarians and Green Party and such) people aged 16-28 who listen to independent music. Better than regular people, they're smarter, hotter (they generally try and act like they don't care about how they look, but they do), and better than the general populace. Do not mistake them with emo kids, emo is the ANTI-INDIE. Emo kids and Indie kids have had a long-standing war since emo became the "new thing". Indie kids hate indie yuppies also, indie yuppies are the Starbucks-drinking, Volvo-driving kids who thing that the music they hear on The O.C. is "indie", think that that Shins song is life-changing, and only pretend to read James Joyce.
Non-Indie: Hey, I heard those Franz Ferdinand people you were telling me about, they sound great.
Indie: I told you about them in fucking Novemeber of 2003, before they sold out. Go listen to some Gang of Four anyway, they're ace, and Franz Ferdinand are just GOF knock-offs anyway.
Everyone has this definition for indie kids and how we dress, but no, you have NO IDEA. So here's the real fucking definition.
Indie kids listen to indie music. That's it. We don't all have wavy hair, or dress like we don't give a shit. We're not all elitist and we're not all artsy types. We're DIFFERENT. We're INDEPENDENT. It's about the music, not the clothes. Some couldn't care less, some put some time into it. Doesn't matter.
Non-indie: How do I look like an indie kid?
Indie: You don't.
Non-indie: So how do you know I'm an indie kid?
Indie: You don't.
Okay, well, indie kids. first off, let me tell you how different the are from emo and scene kids. like, 20295823 miles off. emo kids are crying dark kids that didnt turn into indie kids after the early 2000's. (most indie kids were originally the 1990s emo kids, but thats a completely different definition than the new wave emo kids)more...
scene kids are rainbow wearing, makeup smearing kids who stick it to people unlike them, or slightly like them.
okay, so indie kids. i guess ill define them descriptivly if you want:
of course, they listen to indie music, consisting of bands such as of montreal, owen pallett, casiotone for the painfully alone, and more bands that you've probably never heard of. more popular bands they listen to are the shins, the decemberists, bloc party, and of course, the beatles, david bowie, and talking heads.
a mistake people generally make is comparing the personality lineaments of emo kids to indie kids. emo kids are depressed and want to cut themselves. indie kids are quite the opposite. yes, they are only human, so of course they get sad sometimes, but indie kids usually have an upbeat look at life. their music is usually happy, so that most likely has an effect on their moods.
indie kids mostly consist of liberals, and i have never ever seen a republican indie kid. they dont only hang out with indie kids though, but it is a nice plus to them to have friends that appreciate their music, and dont listen to 50 cent.
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.
