262EchosmithEchosmith is an American indie pop band formed in February 2009 in Chino, California. The band is composed of four siblings: Graham, Sydney, Noah, and Jamie Sierota. Echosmith started first as "Ready Set Go!" until they signed to Warner Bros. Records in May 2012.They are best known for their hit song ...read more.

Echosmith is garbage, they literally have one song that's WAY overplayed. Cool Kids. I swear if I hear that song one more I'm going to have a psychological break down. Not only that they're not even Indie. 237th is a fair ranking on this list for the mainstream trash they call music.

Some people need to learn their music. How could someone not put echosmith? They should be in The top ten.

263Little Comets
264Family of the Year

These guys are my heroes. (See what I did there)

265Hurray for the Riff Raff

A wonderful little folk-rock band from New Orleans. Alynda Lee Segarra's voice is just beautiful. - higgsboson2142

Has lots of meaning and an amazing sound you can't beat listen to there song "Tragic Magic".

269Turin Brakes

Turin Brakes are proper authentic Indie Rock. Please check them out. You won't be disappointed! Their albums are emotional yet rocky and catchy too.

270Gomez

They won the mercury prize back in the nineties and are really great

A cool rocky band with undertones of electo especially in their later albums. Definitely underrated. Check out "Get Myself Arrested" and you will fall in love with him

271Fatherson

Check out this band. They are really underrated!

272Guided By Voices

Amazing! I can't believe they aren't on this list - ryanrimmel

If you are discussing the greatest indie bands of all time, you have to mention GBV. If you've never heard of them you are missing out on one of the greatest bands of all time.

273The Fall
274The Perishers

If you don't know this band yet, listen to their songs like Pills, let there be morning, my heart, trouble sleeping. You won't regret it.

275The Antlers

One of the best bands around.
Their album "Hospice" in my opinion, is the best album in the past 10 years. Incredible music right here.

276The Dandy Warhols
277The Cab

Technically, these guys are an indie glam rock band that unlike other glam rock bands, are really good. The piano and guitar work in most of their songs are extremely impressive! And Their drum beats always make you dance to the off- kilter and sometimes dark lyrics. Tracks like Angel with a shotgun and Bounce are extremely memorable and fun to listen to, way better glam rock than 5 SOS or Evanescence (I actually really like Evanescence so... )

278Cursive
279Spoon

Amazing band! Seriously listen to them

252?!?!?!?
They are the best reviewed band of the 2000s! Also they are amazing!
Seriously they should be top 50 at least

280The Front Bottoms

These people are cool
