Greatest Indie Rock Songs

The Top Ten

1 Mardy Bum - Arctic Monkeys

The tone for this whole song is so on point. You can't help but hearing it and imagining yourself singing it out loudly in front of 1000's-Jordan Lacy

The best indie song ever.

6 songs in the top 10 alone? Aw yes! Arctic Monkeys are incredible, all of their good old indie bangers are amazing!

Imagine Dragons are way much better than any indie rock band

2 Reptilia - The Strokes

Second best indie rock song but for some reason don't look back into the sun isn't on the list at all so reptilia has my vote

Guitar hero 3 baby!

So Good

3 Mr. Brightside - The Killers

This has to be first! I mean, it's not only the most popular song of one of the most popular (and the best) indie rock band, it can also be seen as the ideal definition of "indie rock"- it is sooo good! Classic song, lyrics are amazing and The Killers wrote it, what else to say.

I honestly don't know why this isn't number 1 :(

This is the first, forever!

BEST EVER

4 A Certain Romance - Arctic Monkeys

Amazing song, drums, guitar, vocals, lyrics, and just everything. Should be up much higher defiantly.

A song that anybody connects to---instantly. It is truly something special.

5 Fluorescent Adolescent - Arctic Monkeys

This song has an amazing beat and I find this song getting stuck in my head all the time. Incredible band, incredible song.

I can hear it all day long and never get tired of it!

I think I hear this song so many times.. But it feel like first time...

THE indie rock song in my opinion. Anyone looking for an introduction to the genre needn't look any further.

6 Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand

Franz Ferdinand is not as good as The Arctic Monkeys, but this song is unique!

This song is pure gold

It's a great songs, makes me drift, it should be the first one

Nothing to say this list sucks

7 505 - Arctic Monkeys

Great song with no flaw. Strong lyrics and riff.

Love to the Arctic Monkeys, can't go one single day without listening to them!

My favorite song ever

The point where the guitar kicks in is just really sublimeee

8 Brianstorm - Arctic Monkeys

Should be number 1

Totally in love with Arctic Monkeys!

9 Somebody Told Me - The Killers

This song is great

Surprised to see so little killers on this list!

I love this song! :P

10 I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor - Arctic Monkeys

How is this not in the top 5!? This is the Arctic Monkey's best song and they are the best Indie Rock band of all time. Should be top of the list really... Vote now!

One of the best songs ever. Arctic Monkeys totally rock!

The Contenders

11 Living for the Weekend - Hard-Fi
12 A-Punk - Vampire Weekend
13 Twisted Soul - Pint Shot Riot
14 Moving to New York - The Wombats

Let's dance to Joy division is much better, but this song is pretty great too)

15 Snowflake - Malachai
16 Jump Into the Fog - The Wombats
17 When the Sun Goes Down - Arctic Monkeys

Why? Can someone explain this to me its by far the best A. M song the lyrics the drums everything just listen to it ♥♥♥♥♥

18 Float On - Modest Mouse

Probably the greatest Indie Song Ever, coming from Indie Legends. You people are way too hung up on the Killers. and "Somebody Told Me"? Come on. That song is like a joke..

The only band to stay indie when they got big.

19 Undercover Martyn - Two Door Cinema Club

Super catchy! This song never gets old to me.

20 Fire - Kasabian

I love the contrast between the verses and the chorus! The pick-up is amazing!
