*Sigh* Same old tired rubbish from that magazine. There's a reason why everyone outside the UK hated Oasis, y'know
And the worship to Pete Doherty and The Libertines they give cannot be healthy.
Smells Like Teen Spirit an indie anthem?
Smells like an out of touch mag to me
Voted for by NME readers and XFM listeners. Indie means something different in the UK too.
well it definitely doesn't mean independent. Most of these songs are owned by one of the major labels. Franz Ferdinand was one of the bands specifically mentioned in the Sony payola bust a couple years ago. Maybe they mean best alternative music anthems. However it doesn't surprise me that the buggers put all their UK bands at the top.
So Domino records is a major is it? Who cares what record label they might be signed to elsewhere in the world. Aside from one or two exceptions these tracks were released in the UK on autonomous Indie labels or under parachute indie labels.
