I guess it's like Alternative is just a subgenre of Rock, it's not really the meaning "alternative" just the name.

I need an alternative to alternative rock

Yeah I guess I did because what you said didn't make much sense. I'm assuming it didn't be cause you don't know what indie is. Anyway, we were talking about alternative, not indie.

you are saying that if anyone in their current genre all of a sudden has a hit album that tops the billboard charts they no longer belong in that genre because they are pop now.....that doesn't make sense to me.
Pop as a genre is different now and has grown to mean different things, but in essence it still means popular. So yes, if you're all over the music magazines and MTV, you're popular.

Quote:
A band/artist making one album that is more commercially successful doesn't mean they won't go back to their roots in future albums.
Okay, if they left their roots to become commercial I wouldn't be calling them alternative anymore and if they had to leave their roots to become popular then that means their roots weren't working in the first place. So if they went back to it it probably still wouldn't work and they wouldn't be popular anymore.

I need an alternative to alternative rock
I guess that's what I was trying to say in a nutshell regardless of if they are in the top40 or not.

Alternative Rock is a subgenre of Rock regardless of their position on the top40

Thats pretty much how I work it. I either throw it into "alternative" or "general rock"


89x, the "alternative" radio station in my area plays like three days grace, blue october, breaking benjamin, blink 182, fallout boy, blah blah blah.

In short I'm saying I just dont know.....

Yeah i've always considered alternative bands that were doing something that is actually alternative. I hardly see how pushing the same generic rock that Nirvana brought onto us in the 90s is alternative. I do not think the Foo Fighters are alternative and I sure as hell don't think Three Days Grace, Blink-182 or Fall Out Boy is. All they are is generic, mainstream, boring, cliche, rock. How those bands can even compare to Television or Joy Division is beyond me.

I blame the Pixies, they shouldn't have been so awesome

Nirvana stole their deal, and now we are stuck with Creed and Nickelback

THERE IS NOTHING ALTERNATIVE ABOUT PLAYING THE SAME GENERIC HARD-ROCK CRAP THAT HAS BEEN SHOVED DOWN OUR THROATS FOR THE PAST 10 YEARS. EVANESCENCE IS NOT ALTERNATIVE, SLIPKNOT IS NOT ALTERNATIVE, THREE DAYS GRACE IS NOT ALTERNATIVE, CHEVELLE IS NOT ALTERNATIVE, FLYLEAF IS NOT ALTERNATIVE. OKAY? OKAY.
