Greatest Indie Rock Songs

The Top Ten
1 Reptilia - The Strokes Reptilia - The Strokes Cover Art

Guitar hero 3 baby!

2 Mardy Bum - Arctic Monkeys Mardy Bum - Arctic Monkeys Cover Art

One of the first Arctic Monkeys songs I have ever heard and I fell in love immediately.

Arctic Monkeys: simply The Best!

Why they are only second?

Great beat and lyrics. So good

The best indie song ever.

3 Mr. Brightside - The Killers Mr. Brightside - The Killers Cover Art

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.

Cammy Connor played the drums for this song in sixth year. I enjoyed it. Unfortunately Nairns bass amp was too quiet, Rosie was out of tune, Carina shouted at me half the time and my guitar string broke. all in all a five out of ten performance

This song reminds me so much of my early childhood! I still enjoy it now.

This is the first, forever!

4 A Certain Romance - Arctic Monkeys A Certain Romance - Arctic Monkeys Cover Art

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 Fire - Kasabian Fire - Kasabian Cover Art

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

Fantastic song. Should be first on this list

Best Indie Rock song out there!

6 Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand Take Me Out - Franz Ferdinand Cover Art

Recently started listening to a lot of indie rock, including the Strokes, Black Keys, Killers, Kooks, and several others including Franz Ferdinand. This song, along with Mr. Brightside, are easily my favorites from what I've listened to so far. Bring back the good rock!

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

This song is fantastic... I love the sputtering guitar riffs!

I like how the tempo changes in the song.

7 A-Punk - Vampire Weekend A-Punk - Vampire Weekend Cover Art

The best Indie song even, what a vibe!

8 Twisted Soul - Pint Shot Riot Twisted Soul - Pint Shot Riot Cover Art
9 Somebody Told Me - The Killers Somebody Told Me - The Killers Cover Art

Surprised to see so little killers on this list!

Maybe their best song.

This song is great

I love this song! :P

10 Fluorescent Adolescent - Arctic Monkeys Fluorescent Adolescent - Arctic Monkeys Cover Art

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

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

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