A vast music genre that can be similar to pop music, or completely different. Unlike pop music, the artists and bands have real talent. Some alternative bands are Every Avenue
, and The Naked And Famous. They may not be played on the radio but that doesn't mean they are not great.
Alternative music is a music genre for those who have no music genre.
Popular rock music that is so void and generic, it can't fit into a sub-category.
Acoustic guitar? Repetetive drum beat? Generic, android-like vocalist? This must be alternative music!
What rock bands call themselves because they think it sounds more original then rock and they think it makes them different when really they are one of the millions off other "alternative" bands
Some guy from generic rock band- lets say we aren’t rock but play alternative music because then people will think we are really original and not rock
