  • Indie?

    20. Jul. 2007, 16:38

    What the hell is ""? The indie tag station has The Postal Service AND The White Stripes in the top 20. If both of these bands are really "indie", then how can it be a real genre? oh yeah. It's not. It's just a useful word that can mean almost anything that's not Bruce Springsteen or the Rolling Stones.
