Not really Indy but the first 3 albums are hard to resist. Believe you in me.

122 Catfish and the Bottlemen

I love this band they are ace. They are newer than most of the other bands but still the best.

I love this band so much. You can't stop listening to them! Incredible sound. Their songs are addictive.

My favourite band. Easily. Only 145. Would be higher if their first album isn't only 2 years old.

Pretty Awesome band!, reminds me of The Beatles, Travelling--good song

130 My Morning Jacket My Morning Jacket My Morning Jacket is an American rock band formed in Louisville, Kentucky in 1998. The band currently consists of vocalist/guitarist Jim James, bassist Tom Blankenship, drummer Patrick Hallahan, guitarist Carl Broemel, and keyboardist Bo Koster.

My Morning Jacket deserves more respect. Watch their live show on David Letterman when they set up their concert stage and performed for the audience! One song? Two songs? Hell no, My Morning Jacket performed a concert!

Want to be amazed? Listen to their remake of Rocket Man

Greatest Indie band playing. True Indie

131 Twenty One Pilots Twenty One Pilots Twenty One Pilots is an American musical duo that originates from Columbus, Ohio. Currently there are two members. The lead singer, Tyler Joseph, and the drummer, Josh Dun. At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One more.

This Band is absolutely amazing and have probably changed my life for good. That may sound stupid but their songs are simply flooding with metaphors and good messages. Especially love Forest, Kitchen Sink, and Car Radio. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. HIGHLY.

They are really goo they have their own genre and I love that they are really deep instead of saying what other people say they actually use their own poems and make it into amazing, catchy and deep music and I love that about them

Not really Indie at all, more of a psycho rap, hip hop, but very heavy lyrics and catchy songs! Love them!

132 Walk the Moon Walk the Moon

Walk the moon is amazing! They have beautiful songs and so much energy in concert, I can't believe that they aren't higher on the list.

They're so good. They have that 80s vibe in some of their songs. Talking Is Hard is such a feel good album.

133 The New Pornographers
134 The Middle East

These guys are inspiring and definitely up there with my top 10 favorites. Hit the nail on the head with expressing emotions a rare few can- worth a listen

135 Best Coast

Best Coast is awesome! Cosentino and Bruno are such good song writers that once they come together, its hard to do wrong! Crazy For You was one of the best records 0f 2010 and The Only Place is doing just as well! They are true indie!

138 Cloud Cult
139 Band of Skulls

There are about 15 bands on this list I'd love to vote for but when I realised Band Of Skulls wasn't on the list, I knew that I had to add them. Songs such as ' The Devil Takes Care Of His Own', 'Sweet Sour' and 'I Know What I am ' are easily as good as any Arctic Monkeys or Arcade Fire track I've heard
