Mtv unplugged in central park the track royal jelly wow

Grunge? Well... No. That's not "indie rock".

Grr tired of seeing these guys on every list. They are not indie you fools

204 Black Sonic Revolver

Brand new Manchester band with a touch of blues and physcadelia amazing new talent for 2015

205 The Royal Concept

Their sound "On Our Way" is beautiful and catchy

This band would be higher if people knew who they were! ;) Some of their best songs are Fashion, Hurricane, Smile, On Our Way, Gimme Twice, Knocked Up and Girls Girls Girls. Check them out! Literally every song they have made is catchy, but the good kind of catchy, not an annoying song that gets stuck in your head.

Go grab yourself a copy of 'The Revolution is Never Coming'. Thank me later.

207 CRUISR

212 Desert Noises
213 Freelance Whales

Chuck Criss the vocalist has a completely different style to his brother (Darren). Sort of like miniature tigers. They are quite electronic but I would still call them Indie. Try Hannah for some beautiful quick lyrics that fit perfectly, or Aelous <--- my favourite song of all time.

214 Crooked Fingers

Many haven't heard of this band. It's the brainchild of Eric Bachmann who is also the frontman of this band. Liz durrett is also a band member. Great tunes. If you want to give them a try, listen to "Breaks In The Armor"

215 Company of Thieves

Come on GUYS! You'll forget about all those indie bands once you hear company of thieves! They were the reason I got into indie in the first place! Please give some of your time to listen to them.

216 She & Him

Besides their fascinating and eccentrically awesome music videos, this band makes me feel that good music always exists.

Zooey Deschanel's voice is so amazing. Listening to her songs just makes you happy!
