The paradox

If I were forced to estimate, probably at least 48-56% of my record collection is made up of guitar-rock bands on independent record labels. However, I thoroughly despise "indie-rock" as a generic musical entity. I have a hunch that if I were given entree to the deep inner machinations of the average indie-rocker, I would discover a hatred of sexual congress and black people, possibly unbeknownst to the indie-rocker him/herself. I guess what I am saying is that I would much rather listen to Thin Lizzy or Van Halen than Tapes n' Tapes or June of 44.
