Worst Indie Bands of All TimeCounting down the absolute worst indie bands that dare to even call themselves "indie". The kings and queens of rubbish beats, rubbish lyrics and retarded fans. Mostly all wannabe pop failures that had no choice but to label themselves as indie.
The Top Ten
A tween pop band that had to label themselves indie to get limelight. They're American but use British spelling for their name. The have only one real person in their band, their lead singer. With lyrics like "one love, one house, no shirt, no blouse", you wonder if One Direction would wanna have a collaboration with them.
I would love a song that was under 5 mins and wasn't in a made up language
The Kooks are an absolutely fantastic band and if you have actually listened to them, they have a lot of depth in their songs and make fantastic music. Their band members are so talented, especially the bassist.
Their songs do lack depth and most of the people that like them are generic indie fangirls, or guys that wanna bang generic indie fangirls.
I admit there are times that they don't feel that bad. But they are.
They are awful musically and extremely commercial. One Direction of "indie" world.
I can't believe how comercial a indie band can get
They should never have formed.
A prime example of finding a specific sound and being unwilling to diverge from said sound. Stolen Dance, Flash Junked Mind, Down By the River, and Fairytale are musically uninteresting and all hold the same shallow beat and rhythm. Listening one after another, they are blend into the same noise. Their newer songs like Cocoon and Firebird add small twists but the formulaic structure is evident. Beyond the empty sounds, lyrically, MC is unremarkable with a voice that is equally uninteresting.
A band that I like a handful of songs but samples the worst of the indie industry: weak lyrics and instrumentals baroque noises and vocals to imitate deviation from the standard pop.
