    Indie rock'n'roll is what I want
    It's in my soul, it's what I need
    Indie rock'n'roll, it's time
    Two of us
    Flipping through a thrift store magazine
    She plays the drums, I'm on tambourine
    Bet your bottom dollar on me

    It's indie rock'n'roll for me
    It's indie rock'n'roll for me
    It's all I need
    It's indie rock'n'roll for me

    In a clutch
    I'm talking every word for all the boys
    Electric girls with worn down toys
    Make it up, break it up, what do you care
    Oh what do you care?

    I take my twist with a shout
    A coffee shop with a cause, then I'll freak you out
    No sex, no drugs, no rock, no roll

    When it comes today

    Stay if you wanna love me, stay
    Oh don't be shy, let's cause a scene
    Like lovers do on silver screens
    Let's make it yeah, we'll cause a scene

    It's indie rock'n'roll for me
    It's indie rock'n'roll for me
    It's all I need
    It's indie rock'n'roll for me

    In a clutch
    I'm talking every word for all the boys
    It's all I need
    Make it up, break it up, what do you care
    It's indie rock'n'roll for me

    Two of us, flipping through a thrift store magazine
    Indie rock'n'roll for me
    It's all I need
    Makin' up, breakin' up, what do you care?
    It's indie rock'n'roll for me, ow Writer/s: Brandon Flowers, Dave Brent Keuning, Mark August Stoermer, Ronnie Jr. Vannucci

  • Leon from Waterbury, CtAccording to a recent interview with Brandon I read in Rolling Stone, he dislikes this song the most compared to their others.
  • Paris from Cardiff, United Kingdomi complety agree! its so funny, but at the same time its a really good song, Brandon just can't seem to go wrong! and i so agree with Brandon- if you look at the lyrics, it is ironic!
  • Kylie from Ventura, CaThis song is brilliant! It is really quite obvious and funny that the song is poking fun at the ridiculous indie attitude.
