The full term is "white-belt indie". White-belt indie kids refers to fans of indie (short for "independent") rock bands. These bands sign with minor independent record labels rather than mainstream labels, mostly to have more control over production. They are generally less popular than mainstream bands, but have a devoted following. The indie kids and mainstream ("straight-laced") fans usually don't have the same taste in music, though there are many exceptions.
