List of YouTube's most popular Indie artists. For those who are sick of mainstream music.
I keep hearing about how everyone hates the garbage mainstream music today. But nobody seems to have any alternatives? So, I did some digging for you.

I did a youtube search for "indie artists", in quotes. You must use quotes or else you get a phone book of meaningless hits. I used a view count search in order to get the artists with the most views.

Here are the results:

Please, everyone, let's try to keep this thread dedicated to Indies with the most views on YouTube. Otherwise it will become a worthless thread.

Sorry, after your reply I looked up the Killers. Turns out that they are signed. You are correct. I simply made a mistake.

This is a difficult list to compile. There are many on the Youtube list and checking all their backgrounds is difficult. This is why I made this thread. With this thread, I am hoping to identify all the top truly indie artists on YouTube.

I think this will be valuable to a lot of people. I myself have often wondered just who are the truly most popular indie artists today.

No it's not an oxymoron. If you look at the top indies on this list you will find that they have a million hits or more. This is more views than many record label stars receive on their videos.

Please folks---Only post YouTube videos from Indie or Unsigned bands that have substantial view hits. Substantial means around a few hundred thousand or more.


If everyone can follow this simple rule, then this thread will become a good resource for those who wish to find good indie or unsigned music without having to wade through tons of garbage.

Also, I would like to please ask that only true Indie bands be posted here. Please do not post any groups that have been signed, even with small labels.

If we do this right, perhaps we will all have a nice alternative to the mainstream crap they are feeding us.
