302 Drowners

There isn't a song I don't like by this band.

303 Beach House
304 Elbow
305 Django Django
306 Parquet Courts

Such a great blend of send ups to their influences and a really great original sound. PC blends their indie rock influences with the Americana twang of their home state of Texas so seamlessly.

307 The Coronas
309 The Zolas V 1 Comment
310 Automatic Loveletter
311 The Rakes
312 Black Mountain
313 Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound
314 Radio Moscow
315 Birds of Avalon
316 Dead Meadow
317 Archie Bronson Outfit
318 Fun

Clearly the concept of indie rock is completely lost on this list which is filled with so much trash. Sonic Youth and the Pixies are so far down, it's disgusting.

Over played sellouts. They don't deserve to be anywhere on this list past 290. Why? Because on the scale of Indie, one single doesn't weigh against the other bags of garbage they call albums.

29! Seriously these guys deserve to be in the top 10!

Why are not they in the top 10? There songs are amazing, Some Nights, We are young, etc. I personally love the harmony

319 Manchester Orchestra

Manchester orchestra is the best band on here, they capture every emotion known to man on all of there music, and plus alt press gave "Mean everything to nothing" and "simple math" 5/5 stars
One of the greatest bands ever, definitely deserve to be higher than coldplay and the killers

Hows Manchester all the way down here? Their the best band out there! I searched and searched and searched In the year of about 2009 just to find some good music, some good indie rock bands. I stumbled upon Manchester! their album everything to nothing was amazing! then came Simple Math! Which holds some of my favorite songs! Love Mancester1

The fact that Manchester Orchestra is this far down the list is an absolute travesty! Every single song of theirs is gold and I would strongly encourage every fan of indie rock to give them a long listen.

It was absolutely baffling to me that I had to add this to a list of 240+ indie bands, most of which don't even deserve to be on the same page.

Great band with powerful beats and vocals!
So much variety in their music and such catchy songs.
