"Indie Rock" is all about independant musicians and labels putting out music that the major labels wouldn't want to; that the commercial radio stations wouldn't want to play; and that generally is derivative of rock music. Some relevant nodes include Ani Difranco, Yo La Tengo, superchunk, jimmy eat world, promise ring, and much, much more. College kids seem to dig it, like at UIUC and UK.
