being on an independant record label is indie. indie isn't a sound. dance records as well as guitar rock and pop and hip hop were styles of music released on indie labels

a guitar band that sounds like the smiths but on a major label isn't indie
Indie was used to describe the sound of certain guitar/piano-based acts, whether you agree with it or not, be it rock or pop. As another poster said, the term alternative was prevalent too.
