Anyone know some good indie bands? I just recently got into it with Cage the Elephant and Imagine Dragons.

Neutral Milk Hotel.

That's about as indie as it gets

Beck
Modest Mouse
The White Stripes
The Black Keys
Butthole Surfers
The Flaming Lips
R.E.M.
The Meat Puppets
Pavement
Primal Scream

There, that's a pretty diverse list, but the term "indie rock" is insanely vague, so you may not like a good portion of it

Animal Collective, Foxygen, Fleet Foxes, and Wavves

I wouldn't really consider any of those indie rock, except maybe foxygen. Not that they're bad (animal collective and Wavves are two of my favorite artists) but Animal Collective never really had a rock album, fleet foxes are more folk than anything, and Wavves is way more rooted in the Lo-Fi scene than anything else

You only asked for indie bands, not just indie rock, lol

I'm not the OP

Oh, whoops.

I really wouldn't consider most of the bands you listed indie. I'm sure you already know, but indie bands aren't on big labels, they're on small, non commercial labels. The Flaming Lips, for instance, have been on Warner Brothers for 20 something years. Warner Brothers is a pretty big label. Going by the definition of indie, Wavves is definitely indie. Wavves is on the label Nathan Williams created.

dude, in a world where fucking Coldplay gets called Indie rock, I'm pretty sure that definition doesn't work anymore

Yeah Yeah Yeahs are the only Indie band I know. But I love them.
