Mutated Preps who have diverged from the "mainstream." Any popular music, art, literature, etc. is automatically dismissed as "mainstream"--even stuff that is slightly popular. Unfortunately, all they have succeeded in doing is branching off and establishing their own separate mainstream.
Indie isn't necessarily considered a genre of music and it's hard for Indie folks to define anything about themselves, because they're so self-righteous and stoned all the time. There is, of course, music of "Indie" and it strives to relinquish itself of any themes or messages that can be found among "goth" listeners, "metalheads," "emos," etc. They think they're "above" everyone else, because they have overcome their "dark" emotions--but what they don't realize is that there is NO SUCH THING as "bad" feelings or emotions; only bad ATTITUDES to emotions--which is precisely what they have.
Indie folks assert that they are "happy" but it is a pretentious and lofty sort of happiness that reeks with pride. If you display any sort of emotional instability in their presence or listen to music that they don't like, you're almost immediately severed from their circle of friends.
If there is one good thing about Indie, however, it's that they give some power to the underground scene and that they are generous with their weed--alas, you cannot smoke with them without hearing their political rants and speeches on how the world ought to be like them.
Indie folks = Gypsy Preps, Neo-Hippies,
Some shitty Indie "trance" song: "So I got on my bicycle and rode around"
