I've still got my Death Cab, Velvet Teen, Orange Park, and Spoon records. Right next to my Johnny Cash, U2, Elvis, and REM records.
Well said.

I like Nickelback, I think they are quite good.....
you're bullshitting right? there's absolutely no way anyone should have the right to say that.

as for sean, i have no idea if he was sleeping at that concert. in fact, i'm not really sure what you're getting at. explain yourself! :notshh:

when i think of indie assholes i think of people on radiohead elitest forums

and to barlowdog, you can be on a big record company and still be considered indie (not to over label everything) i know of at least one local chicago band on interscope records that I'm sure very few (if any) have heard of, and i know theres alot more of the same out there...
on the other side of things theres quite a few "pop" bands on indie labels... i think zoomerang named a couple

Pretty much everything I like is indie:

The Church -- Cooking Vinyl/SpinArt/Shock (they have been on major labels before though )
Art Of Fighting -- Trifekta
Gersey -- Trifekta
Steve Kilbey (various indies, including Red Eye and Ryko, now on Karmic Hit, a label he started and his brother runs. I think he finally ran out of labels owned by people he had fallings out with)
Sleepwell -- Horsethief Records
Isidore -- Karmic Hit/Brash
Marty Willson-Piper -- Heyday
Miss V; Pugwash; Halogen; JLK -- et.al., on Karmic Hit
I do like Remy Zero and they were on a major label, but they broke up and now the various former members' projects (like Sleepwell and Isidore) are all on indie labels

Essentially what I like tends to be on indie labels, but I don't like everything on indie labels, if that makes sense.

Indie, not-indie, who cares.

I can honestly say that very few bands of any kind interest or inspire me in any way whatsoever.

Those that do, I have already covered in past threads. Some of them are 'indie' and some of them aren't, but all of them are beyond definition.

Learn to Kneel,

Agreed. Many bands are considered indie that are on major labels. Many publications, including that beacon of indie cred Rolling Stone, still make reference to Modest Mouse as an indie band though they've been with Sony/Epic for more than five years. However, I personally refer to relatively unknown bands on major labels as underground because to me indie implies they are on an independent label.

To answer the original question, some of my fave bands (indie or not) include:
Death Cab
The Wrens
Jealous Sound
Modest Mouse
Bright Eyes
Radiohead

and was always a fan of (excuse the label) post punk stuff like At the Drive In, Fugazi, Archers of Loaf, Husker Du, etc.

I forgot to mention Arcade Fire. Anyone here into them? I saw them play Philly back in November. Incredible record and great live band.
