          I'm going to agree here. It's a common misconception that indie bands that have mainstream success are no longer indie bands. Indie is more than just "are they signed to a major label or not." It has more to do with the unique sound to go along with the band's independant roots.

                  I'd say Jet is more hard rock/garge punk than indie

                    Maybe, but they aren't far off a few of the other bands in this thread, so I thought I would just chuck them in.

                      I'm a big fan of Hellogoodbye. Pretty sure they are considered indie.

                          Few British bands banging around there which is cool, I like most of the bands listed. New Pornographers, Decemberists, Shins, Bloc Party, Battle, Muse etc etc etc etc

                          My indie lust is dying a bit but the answering machines, and the little one's are cool, saw them live recently in london for a mates band (a beggars opera was supporting). Was quite a few American suit types there to watch (and some fans). I think a couple of them got signed off the back of my drunken antics alone (well, thats what im saying at least)
                          What if everyone simultaneously disobeys?
                          It aint a game if no one plays, oh.

                            Bright Eyes is pretty much the stereotypical indie band. Conor Oberst is quite a genious though.

                              Bloc Party is pretty sweet.
