Best Answer

Many people tend to think indie rock is a style of music when in fact it just means that the band is with an independent (indie) music publisher and not with the bigger labels. Although you tend to find that indie labels will sign more bands/singers from alternative forms of music whereas bigger labels like to sign bands/singers from mainstream. Of course nowadays indie is mainstream. Go figure! Bands like Blur and Oasis have this style of music !!!!

Difference between indie rock and alternative rock?

Indie and alternative are my two favorite genres. Indie means independent, and when I think indie I think more hippie-like. Most indie songs are repetitive and are kind of flowy.
