That's INDIEtastic!

Alright, here's what I would like to do. I'd like to compile a list of the top Indie albums from every years since 1998 (10 years ago). So take a look through your media player of choice and post 5 indie albums from every year since then (excluding 2009).

The only qualification is that the album was released by an indie label. It doesn't matter if the band subsequently signed with a major.

We'll let this go until February 25 and then I will compile the master list. If it looks worthwhile we can do a survivor with all the albums.

Ha Scumbo, I used it to piss you off. I also left the title of this thread intentionally vague.

Ulcers, here you come!

So me banging your mom = Indie. That's going to make putting a list together real easy.

Literally, if it's on an "independent label" it's "indie". Some bands still fall into the description even though they're on major labels because of their history, ideals, sound, etc. (for example: Decemberists, Death Cab, Built to Spill, Flaming Lips, Wilco, etc).

It gets more confusing when you have to decide if a label is actually "independent" or just shitty and small.

That's just made it a whole lot less fun...I was only 11 in 1998...not sure I have much from that specific year.

My list making instinct may just get the better of me though...
