For the purposes of this site I feel the need to define "independent music". Bands that would be catagorized as punk, emo, garage, straight-edge, hardcore, math rock, college rock, modern rock, mod, ska & (gasp!!!) alernative (Damn I hate that term)(sorry if I left something out. Please tell me if I did.) will be covered by this site. That is what my peers and I are into. This is in no way meant to sound elitist or secular. It would simply take up too much of my time. Time that I would rather spend doing other things.
