most are down to earth,
like people who recycle, use non-harmful to enviornment products etc.
yes it does stand for independant,
usually these people do not like labels and go for the labels suck routine,
they listen to a lot of bands that are "underground" such as the hush sound, and death cab for cutie which are some of the more popular bands.
no not all of them are bitchy and don't listen to other people's opinions although some are.
most are pretty open-minded to others opinions but prefer to go along with there own.
they are usually out-casts that don't fit in in any stereo-typical group.
many despise the "hot topic" scene because they think it's just for a bunch of depressed people who can only think about death,
you can usually find them hanging out at:
urban out fitters,
coffee shops,
or shows.
most tend to be on the computer a lot.
as i have always said indie people come in different varieties,
they made this stereotype for the people who didn't really fit in in just one area.
and i must say that they have the best fucking music i have ever heard.

clique: a kid in high school or college who likes indie music, is usually intelligent, buys what they want and doesnt take shit from anybody, and can either be unpopular or popular with all other cliques (except for the cheerleaders, whose slutty shallow personalities won't talk to indie girls because they don't have a Gucci purse). Indie kids are usually witty and funny (in a quirky way).

INDIE IS NOT EMO OR GOTH. Those kids are a few steps farther to the pissed off side of life than indie kids. Most indie kids are happy =D

not sure, but most indie kids i know are democrats.
Cheerleader: hey, eww, indie kid!

Jock: that's my girlfriend.

Nerd: That's my lab partner.

Funny girl: that's my bff!

Cheerleader: but she's wearing UO!

Jock: yeah, well she's hotter than you. and she listens to cool music. =

Nerd: she gets better grades than me too.

Funny girl: she's HILARIOUS!

Indie girl: basically, i'm me, and i'm happier than any cheerleader.

Cheerleader: hmph! whateverr slut.

Indie girl: scuse me, i dont open my legs to passing men. =

1. Used to describe a music genre including Alternative/Rock/Punk elements. Include bands such as: The Smiths, Radiohead & The Libertines.

2. Clothes including Mod elements, often non-branded items. Indie kids may visit shops such as: Beyond Retro, Urban Outfitters or Fred Perry. Examples of indie clothes are: Pointy brown shoes, Skinny jeans, Polo tees or checked shirts, leather jackets.

3. Word mistakenly and wrongly used by underage kids to describe themselves as "cool". Often those who go to shops such as Topman, or read NME as it is so cool.

Indie Kid: How much did you pay for In Rainbows? They made more from this album than Hail to the Thief.

Scenester: Radiohead are soooo good, have you heard Paranoid Android? I read in NME

Indie Kid: Yes...

Normal Person: What clothes did you buy?

Indie Kid: Just a new pair of shoes and a Lyle & Scott t-shirt.

Scenester 1: We are so indie with our Topman hoodies, hey
can we go and buy NME to read the New Bands section?

Scenester 2: I know, Pigeon Detectives are going to be soooo good. We should also go to The Wombats, they're sickk.

Indie Kid: I've already seen the Pigeon Detectives by chance and they're really not that good... Try Babyshambles or The Cribs.

Scenester 1: Yeah The Cribs are quality. They played them in topman earlier. Hey is that song "Did you see the stylish kids in the riot...?" by Babyshambles or The Libertines?


Indie Kid: No that's not true... Anyway I have to go to the record store.

Scenester 3: Is that the one in Shoreditch? It's sooo indie there, let's go!
