    Beats me. I just listen to what I like.

    ...and that's what it boils down to. Really, it's a matter of taste.

    Personally, I listen to a good deal of indie stuff and enjoy it. I also listen to a lot of mainstream stuff. I listen to rock, I listen to rap, I listen to metal and I listen to a lot of older stuff (Beatles, Stones, the Doors, the Who, etc.). Depends on my mood. I'm pretty sure anybody could pick up my iPod and find hours of stuff they could listen to.

    This, though I prefer classic rock/blues and indie/alt. I like to keep a good balance.

    Your mistake was saying, "Who are they?"

    The correct response to the comment, "Oh man, can't wait till lunch! I'm running out and grabbing the new Vampire Weekend album" is to say something along the lines of, "Really? They totally suck and are sooo last year," then start putting random words together, preferably with one of the words being lewd, and start making up new band names, like, "you should skip Vampire Weekend -- I mean, how Twilight can you get ... Vampire Weekend? Seriously? -- and instead you should pick up that new disc by The Plastic Penises! They're great!"

    This way, your indie coworker friend will either have to (1) Google the phrase "plastic penises" on a work computer, you may use this information however you wish, or (2) have to go to the record store and ask if they have plastic penises. The point is, just make up band names and start rambling!

    Alternately, you could just say you dig Brittney Spears and The Backstreet Boys, then your indie-listening coworkers won't bother broaching the subject of music with you ever again and you're spared the agony.

    And here I was thinking they were referring to Ravi Shankar.

    I just googled image searched the band.


    I'd rather Georgia stop playing football than listen to this band.

  12. If Indie bands were good, they'd be mainstream.
