2. The Garden State soundtrack will never leave your CD collection because you're still convinced it is one of the best albums you've heard your entire life.

3. Every time you hear The Killers, your heart flutters and you start signing "I've got a soul but I'm not a solider."

14. You have no shame in admitting that songs by Cat Power, Belle and Sebastian, and Iron and Wine made you cry sometimes.

16. You still get pumped every time a new song is released by SubPop Records or Saddle Creek Records.

19. There will never be a day when you don't write lyrics on your converse shoes.

20. You still make mix CDs because they are the only way for you to communicate your feelings.

21. If your date makes one mention of your favorite indie band, you're in love and ready to marry them.

22. Even today, you still sit in coffee shops, listening to Modest Mouse or pretending it's 2001 and The Strokes' debut album has just been released.

You'll never forget the golden days of indie rock — indie kids forever!
