...I actually can't recall. It might have been The Flaming Lips, because they had that one track in the Spongebob movie. But the first band I really listened to would have been Mudhoney or Primus. There's probabpy an obvious one I'm looking over, if that's the case I'll get back to you.

It depends on what you count as indie, but I heard R.E.M., The Smiths, Husker Du, Meat Puppets, and a number of others when their first albums came out.

Define "indie", because it doesn't really describe any type of music for me. It only defines their status as far as labels go.

Bands not on major labels. So you know the standard definition of indie.

We already know this, but people often call bands on major labels "indie" and it doesn't make sense. That's what I had asked.
