The Hadouken Music Stereotype

Hahaha, I've noticed a considerable amount of traffic on my site referred by natural searches for the term 'indie cindy' so I checked it out myself. Apparently, 'indie cindy' is a term referring to a music stereotype described by the band Hadouken in their song That Boy That Girl. It's kinda insulting, but I love the song though, hahaha. How ironic. Ya guys know I've been using this term for years, but I guess Hadouken is playing my song (or not). Unfortunately, I don't fit the stereotype (not the look of the lego haircut and polka dot dress), but there are some indie traits that I have associated with it (although I should not consider myself too indie nowadays coz I guess I mellowed down). I also appreciate the usage of a term I coined long time ago (only for myself though). I guess I'm feeling as if they were playing my song! Yeah! Check out the song on my radio blog. Anyhoo, check out a sketch of what an 'indie cindy' looks like (click on the image for a larger picture) -

That boy's a Hoxton Hero,
Skinny fit jeans and dressed in pink,
How he dresses I care zero,
As long as he don't steal my drink.

That girl's an Indie Cindy,
Lego haircut and polka-dot dress,
I don't care if she thinks she's indie,
How she's different is anyones guess.

You've got you skin tight,
colours on the floor,
With all your white lines,
every slut and whore,
All the band boys in your specs and sneakers,
On your back yeah,
its time to blow the speaker,

I went to a rave and it got real moody,
How can a screwface have a good time?
Was he deprived of his mothers boobie?
I doubt he's lived a life of grime
I went to a gig but nobody danced,
Everybody was far too cool,
All the kiddies they just stood there,
Is it the same at their public school?

(follow, wallow, swallow)


I stay hard like metal, you could never merk me,
dirty like skettle, I kill germs like dettol,
get mucky, but I will never settle.

I'm an indie limey, yeah but i like it grimey,
and i rave with a grin, I'm not too cool for the next big thing,
I dont wanna fuck about, I wanna good time and thats why I'm out,
And you look silly, when you put on your best myspace pout.

After reading the lyrics (kinda made me feel a bit down, but it's a good song nevertheless), I looked up the term on and found some definitions for just 'cindy' and I think definition #1 fits me better, hahaha!
