The Top TenXW
To those who haven't heard MGMT before, I suggest starting out with Electric Feel, Flash Delirium, Kids, and Time to Pretend... That will get you hooked on enough to properly fall in love with songs like Siberian Breaks, Of Moons Birds and Monsters, and Congratulations.
By the time you've through with these songs, you'll return to this page and vote for them! And these are just some of the popular choices... I encourage even casual MGMT fans to go through their entire albums- you'd be surprised just how one of the songs you've heard little of catches your fancy!
I wish there were more bands like MGMT out there right now. There songs have a unique sound to them which you will find irresistible. You won't be able to stop humming their songs!
I LOVE MGMT! I just about died when I bought their album Oracular Spectacular. That was the best money I ever spent! They really mean the world to me!
I fell in the love with MGMT the moment I heard Kids. MGMT is definitely my favorite band every.
I think they should be #1, in my opinion they're one of the best bands out there today and highly underrated.V3 Comments
a rely skillful band with a good drummer
I almost threw up when I seen this. How did they make it past the Top 20?
This list is horrible because not enough people have voten. Love Artic Monkeys but not sure if it is the best indie band.V1 Comment
You Only Live Once is a great song and Julian Casablancas sounds (and looks) perfect in the song and the video. Some songs just sound perfect and this one is it! I LOVE THE STROKES! BOTTOM LINE.V2 Comments
Great band, summer vibe and catchy guitar riffs. Best example of an indie band.
His lyrics and music are beyond many of his peers. He doesn't try to dazzle you with a voice he pulls you in with actual meaning to the words he says.
definitely a great band, but this is a horrible list, sorry. - T-uh
I was surprised not to find them on the list... Nanna has an incredible voice and the band is AMAZING!
Their song 'Little Talks' is a major hit... I love them!
The top song of this Malaysian band is situasi, prom queen, soldier, sily lily, bunk anthem and through Malaysia window... This can be top of the world with great performance on stage and have fun with people
Bunkface is the best indie band ever in my life. Their songs were the best of the best. Their music was awesome, fantastic, and cool... I hope that bunkface will do their own best to save malaysian's music industry of music. Maruah malaysia tidak akan kami cemari... Music malaysia lagi bagus daripada music luar.. GOMO BUNKFACE GOMO!
So different and such a unique style. Can listen to their album over and over again. Geek-rock.
...Needs to go back to 1975 where it belongs, in the dark shadow of what music is today. Perfected.
Are. You. Kidding. Me. The 1975 is original AF, unlike what music has become
Best indie maker of all time! The vocalist and drummer r the best!
Iron and Wine rocks and he is my favorite singer. He kind of looks like Jesus Christ with the beard but he is still a good singer/songwriter. You rock Iron and Wine.
Iron and Wine is the BEST! Its all I've been listening to at the moment. after hearing just one song I was hooked!
Imagine the world w/o imagine dragons... in the words of sam Cooke
Dude, they are simply amazing, their music makes me feel something unexplainable.
The Neighbourhood is my all time favorite band. You really can't put them into a genre, they can range from sleepy indie R & B to hard hip-hop rap. These are my personal favorites: Female Robbery, $ting, Greetings From Califournia, Daddy Issues, Baby Came Home (1 and 2), The Beach, Warm, and Jealousy.
