A bog-standard, charisma-deficient, boring-shouty-guitar-rock "indie" band propelled to undeserved
stardom through favourable reviews/coverage in the NME
, a once-great, now-rubbish music weekly.
Sadly, in the UK, many people consider these bands
to be the definition of indie.
Kasabian, Hard-Fi, The Kooks, Babyshambles, The Arctic Monkeys, Bloc Party, Razorlight: shit NME bands.
