Listen, Kasabian haven’t spent 20years blowing the roof off venues just to be left out of a Best Indie Rock Bands Ever list, pal!


No one from the maccabees even think the maccabees are better than the bands below them even though they are better than radiohead


Well, you can’t deny that nearly all these bands are indie rock. That much is true.

You’ve been ma0sm’d !


Oh are Peppermint Apes not a real band?

Does the same go for Spoon?


Genuinely thought Peppermint Apes were one of those bands that were nobodies but became popular for ridicule on drownedinsound.com, like Squidpan, Tiger Crew and The Kayas.
