Smashing Pumpkins and Pearl Jam are selling millions, I wouldnt consider them independent. Just to name two of the recent mentions.
Indeed its good music not good image. I cant imagine anybody putting image before his/her own taste.

I can tell ya, I never payed much attention to what is cool and what is not.
Anyway, while we're on it, the top 20 of my Last.fm account - its pretty much a good mirror to what I actually listen to a lot.

1) Motorpsycho, 2) Pet Shop Boys, 3) New Order, 4) Die Ärzte, 5) The Sisters of Mercy, 6) The Flaming Lips, 7) Ryan Adams, 8) Einstürzende Neubauten, 9) Ruhestörung (that my own band), 10) Manic Street Preachers, 11) REM, 12) Isolation Years, 13) Naked Lunch, 14) Kraftwerk, 15) Tocotronic, 16) Calexico, 17) Aphex Twin, 18) Falkenbach, 19) Nelly Furtado, 20) Schweisser.

A pretty sick mixture actually. winking smiley

being independent is a state of mind, a motivation, a goal. it has nothing to do with the amount of sold records and the label you're on. the "indie" tag is drawn way too small and too superficial.

how many indie bands would like to go major, but no one signs them and the indie community considers them totally yay indie cool yee-haw!?
there goes the image thing.

7 pages in and only one mention of Dungen???

OK, here's another one:

DUNGEN!!!

A must-hear for Motorpsycho fans, especially if you like their psych/prog side.

never heard of them, but i kinda like what i'm listening to right now, it's a song called "stadsvandrnigar", think i'll have to take a closer look at that band
Re: What are your favorite actual bands these days beside MP?

yes they sound interesting.
Re: What are your favorite actual bands these days beside MP?

Try Ta Det Lugnt or Tio Bitar, those two are the best. Stadsvandringar is a much more folk-psych album, the other two are a little heavier and more prog-like, especially Ta Det Lugnt.
