The conclusion of our four-parter on the history of indie rock will look at everything that’s happened in the 90s and through the beginning the 21st century, specifically how the indie world showed the major labels what needed to be done in the post-Napster world. Basically, the entire music industry was reorganized in the image of the indie world.
Songs from this week’s show:
Stone Roses, “Fool’s Gold”
Oasis, “Rock’n’Roll Star”
Offspring, “Gotta Get Away”
Strokes, “Last Nite”
White Stripes, “Fell in Love with a Girl”
New Pornographers, “Mass Romantic”
Arcade Fire, “Neighbourhood #3 (Power Out)”
Dead Weather, “Hang You From the Heavens”
