Sub Pop Records is a well respected indie music label label. It has a great roster of well knowns and unknowns like The Shins, The Postal Service, Iron & Wine, and Hot Hot Heat. Originated in 1979 when Bruce Pavitt started a fanzine for indie rock called Subterranean Pop. A mix tape LP thing with indie rockers from around the country was made and long story short, Sub Pop Records forms.
Hey, I found a record label with a lot of cool bands. It's called sub pop.

Music which is in the 'pop' genre, which has never been in the top 10.
The club was awful last night, I couldn't stand the Sub-pop.
