Top Ten Best Indie Rock Bands
The Contenders: Page 13
Seriously? 78? At least they don't commit the crime of having that unbearable stereotypical indie sound. They have more depth than anything on here except for maybe Radiohead. All the songs have amazing melodies and lyrics, plus, Kevin Parker does all the music himself. It's a shame they're so low.
"Feels like we only go backwards" is amazing, one of the best songs on this whole list so far, and I've been going in order of bands and really surprised I had to go this far down for such perfection.
Just wait till they get more albums out, then people will eventually give them the praise they deserve
One of the few modern musical geniuses in Kevin Parker. Extremely original.V 8 Comments
The Grandmothers of "indie" and post-punk from the 60's. If you don't like their music, you don't know anything about what indie really means.
They are the best band ever. Listen to them
The Format is one of the best indie rock bands, and should definitely be higher on this list. The Format doesn't get as much attention as they deserve, and that's a shame because their last album "Dog Problems" is a really great album. Nate Ruess and Sam Means really write some great songs together. I'd recommend you listen to I'm Actual, Dog Problems (the song), Snails, Inches and Falling, Time Bomb, and The First Single. Once you listen to those songs, you'll want to vote The Format up!
Outstanding! Just Hear They Are Fantastic
Why the heck are they so low? They are my absolute favorite. I LOVE their songs.
Absolutely amazing band. Amazing live too. Check out The Draw, Icarus, Flaws and of course Pompeii.
They are purely awesome..! one of my favorites - HawkEye2V 14 Comments
Amazing absolutely amazing band. Silver Lining is my jam! In Guards We Trust album ROCK SOLID
I think Last Dinosaurs are really low on the list is because they came in very silent. Not a lot of people know about these guys. I have loved these guys for a long time and they may not have a lot of songs. BUT! If more people actually heard these guys, this would at least make it on the top 10's
Band from Australia. Never "in a million years" would they come to do a concert in Hawaii even though they have songs name 'Honolulu' and 'Hawaii'. Sean's voice is perfect, and the rhythm is amazing. What an underrated band...

The vamps are a boy band and are often compared to One Direction as they both work in similar genre's, consist of "hot" boys and mainly have teenage girl as fans. Their lyrics, vocals and tune are way better than One Direction but The Vamps music still lie in the mainstream, generic, pop category.
They do some good covers of pop songs on their YouTube channel (as in they've change the tune well, it sounds better than the original) If you like this type of genre they're worth listening too but I think they should be lower on the list for "Indie Rock Bands"
The Vamps are like One Direction, except they actually play their instruments and sing without auto-tune.V 1 Comment
Absolute beast, lump, blank baby, peaches, these are just a few of the amazing tunes written by these guys great to listen to and great to play
Zachary Cole Smith, formerly a guitarist for Beach Fossils, creates something truly unique in his band, DIIV's debut album Oshin. The made-up words Smith uses truly are a testament to how unique this album is. Take one listen and you'll suddenly feel as if you're swimming in cold water. All of the members are Water signs, and it truly shows. It's more of a liquid experience than I have ever felt whilst listening to an album. The first half of this Album is calm with cooling pop songs, while contrastingly the second half feels more energetic. With DIIV's biggest hit, "Doused" you can finally see a glimpse of the things this band is headed toward: a more energetic feel while keeping the same serenity with which they began their career. There's nothing life-changing about this album but it truly is a sensory experience. It is more guitar-led than vocally led which adds a unique element. I would recommend this band and album to everyone I know and I cannot wait until their new album drops ...more
They're must listen! Venice & Pioneers simply unique!
