Indie boys do not always have long hair, Some indies tend to have stylish hair and like to wear skinny jeans sometimes and occasionally printed t-shirts . They also hate chavs and emos =
Mindless chav dressed in full lacoste and an indie dressed up in smart jeans and converse .

Mindless chav : Oi you indie bastard thinkin you're cool with you're converse !

Indie : Fuck off ya chav you think you're solid at least i look respectable

A Mindset Of The "Hidden Masses"
Not The Elitest Arseholes That Claim To Be Indie. It's A State Of Mind, And As So, Not Defined As The Shins, Franz Ferdinand, Stone Roses, Richard Ashcroft or The Music .. It Can Reach From Eurphoric Dance Music To The Melancholly Of Eels.

Indie Kids Are Usually Better Educated Due To Immense Lyrics (Gold Leafed Triptych Angel á lá Stone Roses) & An Older Following (Who They Gain Knowledge Off)
Average Joe : Heard A Kasabian Song Last Night .. They're Good .. But Are They Indie?

Indie Kid : Dunno, They're Mainstream, But So Are The Verve ..

Average Joe : It Was On Tomb Raider, Did You Watch It ..

Indie Kid : Nope, I Was At A Rave ..

A genre' of music as well as a 'fashion' and part of an individuals personality. Most 'Indie' people consider themselves the gurus of music and that their genre' of music is the only one able to be appreciated as 'real' music.

Indie's give off a very elitist asshole attitude which is unbelievably annoying.

They claim to only listen to 'underground' music that isn't widely popular or common, which is contradicted by bands like Radiohead or artists like Adam Young from Owl City.

According to Indie kids, Adam Young is a sell-out?

Basically, if you're an artist who makes money, you are no longer considered popular amongst Indie kids.

Also, Indie people like to put themselves above the other social status of 'Emo' although they appear to be insanely similar, besides attitude. Also, 'Scene' kids seem to differ from Indie. Basically, you have to be a total douche bag to be an Indie kid who likes to put themselves above everyone else because they have a depressing home / school life and they've mastered the art of alienation.

In essence, an Indie = Emo / Scene without the whining emotion, and more of a stuck-up princess attitude.
Person: Hey, a friend told me you liked Modest Mouse?

Indie Kid: Not anymore?

Person: How come...?

Indie Kid: They're sell-outs and totally unoriginal...don't talk to me about 'good' music.

Person: ...I see... O.o lol?

Indie (independent) rock. While once more of a meaningful genre with independent bands on independent record labels, it is now emo's up and coming brother, loved by both annoying scenesters and mainstream fans alike. Being on a mainstream label kind of defeats the purpose of being called "indie."
Indie kid: Hey, let's go listen to Interpol or the Blood Brothers.
Emo kid: Sure, they're pretty cool. Maybe we could listen to some Bright Eyes afterwards, and cry or something.
Indie kid: I can't believe how cool we are.

Short for Independant Rock. Music that is made by people that are too untalented for realy rock and too self aware to become emoand listened to by people that think they are way too hip for any other music, when in fact they are all tools. The staple lyrical content for the Indie genre is that off very sad relationships which becomes worse than emo becuase it's posed as being independant although it is all the same and in reality all very dependant on each other and huge record labels.

Most obvious bands that are Indie include

The Kooks
Razorlight
Tomos "Dude! did you hear the new indie band last night"
Sean "No! I was too bussy having a life and not trying to be obscure and failing"
