I saw them on Letterman and thought they sounded like an updated Police.

i saw a video on tv and thought it sounded like just more generic indie NME crap. I don't really know what the big deal with them is.

theyre an indie band that gets played on mtv, meaning fake indie, meaning they suck.

and dont give me those "you hate all music thats popular" because thats bullshit. i love tons of mainstream hip hop, especially lil wayne, and i think timbaland is brilliant and a sound whiz, and i like what hes dine with justin timberlake a ton and i like beyonces singles. but, indie rock that is made to be popular defeats the purpose of indie rock and that makes it shitty.

^You defining a genre as 'indie rock' defeats the purpose.

Which was my point. My comment was directed towards his ideology rather than any form of music.

indie can be interpreted in ten million different ways.

Indie meant something much different in the late 80s.

oh idealogy, eh? did you pull the dictionary out for that one? anyways, indie rock unforunatly does stand for a genre of music as opposed to when it used to just mean 'iddependent', bands that are described as indie now rip of the smiths or gang of 4, have those annoying chirpy guitars, and arent independent, like bloc party and stuff like that. sad times we live in.

See them? Not until 1990. But I'd started listening to them in the late 80s.

It appears you worry about things that are irrelevant.

They sound like 60's pop to me. Then again a lot of indie pop sounds like 60's pop to me.

They are no great shakes, but also not bad; All in all, I liked their performance on SNL.
