Classic Indie

For those who want ''actual'' classic indie, listen to Pandora's post punk station found under their alternative category.

I've been looking at the release dates for many of my favorite indie/post punk revival songs. Most of them are five to fifteen years old. It's no wonder Pandora has a classic indie station. The hits that defined the indie movement aren't even the latest thing anymore. I started to get into indie six years ago.

jmacdono:

Many of today's so-called indie bands aren't all that independent. Only two of the songs listed are actually on truly independent labels. The confusion arises due to today's indie bands sounding like the post punk bands of the eighties. This has made indie and post punk nigh interchangea b l e names for the music. Also, post punk was called indie in Britain back then.

Folks, Indie is short for Independent , so older modern rock bands like R.E.M., The Cure, Echo & The Bunnymen were not really Indie, they were all on major labels! The bands in this category, though were and some still on smaller Independent labels, rather than the big ones. You can't take a genre and retro-catego r i z e all the music that was like it from decades past. Plus, The Shins first album was over a decade ago, in 2001.

Maybe it was still called alternative back then? This station doesn't seem much different than the Indie Rock station.

Pandora you have a very short memory of 'classic'. Apparently if you heard a song in high school and are now in college or have just graduated it's now classic. Four years does not a classic make. Push the selections back at least a decade. Indie didn't start with Arcade Fire.

Why the hell is CLASSIC indie only go back to 2007? Where's the 80's and 90's? I ran an Alternative broadcast station in a Top 10 market starting in 2007 and this stuff was either in current rotation or in a new texture category. With classic Indie I'm looking for stuff that goes along with the Cure, Smiths, Talking Heads, Husker Du, Dinosaur Jr, New Order, REM, Neutral Milk Hotel, Ya Tengo, etc

This really isn't CLASSIC Indie, it's more Junior Class Indie. Go Back to the beginning Pandora, try again with this station :D You need to go back in time at least 10 years, you'll find a TON of the indie that started it all :D

Classic indie should be the Cure, the Smiths, U2, Echo and the Bunnymen, and the Psychedelic Furs
