Just like the title suggests. This one may bother me As Much as the many new "Metal" genres.
I mean What is "Alternative Rock " alternative TO? I never heard rock classified as alternative prior to, maybe 15 years ago, o.k. maybe 20.
I realize , or think , that this is how grunge or indie, or punk is classified? Or maybe it designates a certain era? (The 90's through current?)
Is it alternative to pop? rock? classic rock? or metal? It's like saying "You can have all this, or you can have - "
the alternative!" .
How do you feel about this genre "alternative" , and is it even really a genre? And if so What exactly. Is that where they stuck all that wonderful grunge and indie that doesn't quite classify as the other genres (in someone else's book).
end of rant.
