I think in this case "Indie" means unlikely to be played on a "top 40" US radio station, not independently produced/promoted

I agree. Most of these bands are well known on a national level and enjoy success under Top 40 Rock charts. Let's see a quiz about Moss Icon, Dag Nasty, and Indian Summer!

Agreed 100%. The overwhelming majority of these bands are not Indie. Much more "Pop" than "Indie". Also, were no Indie songs released between 93 and 2001, and then 20 in 16 years?
