derived from the word 'individual' usualy reffering to an unsigned band or film, there is really no such thing as an 'indiekid' because indie is not a style but a genre of some sort of art music, film making etc. If you call yourself an indie kid then you are most likely a tryhard loser. Oh and if you own rayban sunglasses and/or a pair of docmartins, this does not make you indie infact quite the opposite. A real indie kid, if there was one would do their own thing dress truely different to everyone else and not get angry and write them letters of abuse if someone copied them. Oh and if you use im or shortened words i.e. wt, omg, devo etc. you are NOT indie and never will be.
Tryhardindiekid: omg I totes like found death cab for cutie before they were cool i was like the first one to listen to them and now everyones totes into them thanks to me I'M SO ANNOYED THEY'RE COPYING ME OMFG

Actualindiekid: Well I highly doubt you 'found them' seeing as they formed the band and unless you're personally friends with them I also highly doubt you were the first one to listen to them.

Tryhardindiekid: whatevs, lolz!

Indie music is about grit, struggle, and everyday life, It is not about faggot students in pink blazers dancing to the klillers on a night out in a posh bar on their Mummy and Daddys wages, Franz Ferdinand is NOT indie, nor are the Killers, Bravery, Kasier Chefis ECT, theese are faggot student pop bands, indie is Oasis, The Stone Roses, Cast, Happy Mondays, Joy Division, Charlatans ECT
Student Cunt : Oh yeah, im so indie, ive just got the new franz ferdinand album, theres a really cool song on there about going out on mummys money in a pink blazer and dancing like a cunt.

Indie Lad: Ive just scraped enough money together to buy a copy of All Change by Cast and a few e's, i mignt be poor, but at least im real.

A stupid fucking word some music critic coined to describe a band releasing an album via an independent record label. It's not a genre of music, anybody that knows music will tell you that. Indie is the new term for telling people you have sold out.
"Hey man check out these new indie genre bands: LCD Soundsystem and Arctic Monkeys, they will blow your mind" "These bands barely sound alike at all...One is electronic and the other is punk...How can you slot them into the same genre?" "Well you see, I am a fad whore. I must do it."

Originally meaning music that was released by bands on independent labels, "indie" has now come to represent music released by the majors, but marketed towards students and adults who should know better.
Tarquin thought he was cool, because he read the NME, and had heard of a few 'obscure' indie bands. Everyone else thought he should wash more often.

indie is just being independent and walking in school or a job and not like caring much about what other people think of you and u will talk to them untill they will tell you to fuck off and even then u wont really care much anyway. indie kids really listen to bands that no one really knows like the shins and other random stuff!
EMO KID; ohh im so sad :(
INDIE KID; so did u hear the new song from the shins?
EMO KID; ur not listening to me im going to cry over in that corner now!
INDIEKID;so was that a no?

An elitist.
Most claim to 'just be themselves', but really STRIVE to be unique. They brag about how different they are.
They listen to bands no one has heard of to feel superior.
They also irrationally hate any other kind of people and music.

Extremely annoying people for the above reasons.

You really are not cool. You are NOT better than anyone else, and you're music is not better than any other. I'll be honest here; I've been called indie - and I might even be as I don't fit into any steriotype. But that's because I really do only do, listen to and wear what I like. I do not really like indie music that much - I like what I like; which can include all sort of stuff, but mostly varied forms of metal, rock and hard rock and also swing. I don't think I'm cool, especially not because I'm different - and I don't have to claim that I'm unique to make myself feel good or superior.

I'd also like to mention their is nothing wrong with emo music - though I do not listen to it much myself. Also, as was implied in another submission, Trivium and Cradle of Filth are not emo. Both are bands which I quite enjoy.
I'm indie; I'm so cool. I'm different and I only like things that no one else does - but thats really what I like of course. I hate goths and emos and chavs and preps and and genre of music other than indie.
