What makes Indie pop different then other genres History of Indie pop music Credits Indie pop music is a genre or sub genre of alternative music or alternative rock, and is short for the name "Independent music". The word "indie" was used at a time to describe artists on independent labels. Indie pop music is a genre of alternative music along with the other genres such as Brit pop, Grunge, Indie rock, and a few more others.

The instruments usually tied into Indie pop music are vocals, guitar, bass, and the drums. Popular Indie pop artists/Bands today It all started in the mid-1980's, originating in the United Kingdom. Indie pop was inspired by Punk music's Do-It-Yourself Ethnic and the beliefs associated with punk culture.
