First off, lets talk about Alternative music.In my humble opinion, the category of "Alternative Music" doesn't mean a helluva lot. Let's think about it for a second. Okay, yeah, it is alternative to the likes of Mariah Carey and Celine Dion. But if we're going to say it's alternative to your mainstream pop rubbish - the kind that involves loads of synthesised drums and pretend keyboards with repetitive "melodies" and formulaic lyrics - then "alternative" is NOT the only alternative. We know their names - Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains - but what are they? Some say that these are alternative bands, but what does "alternative" mean? The dictionary definition of "alter" is "to make change or become different." Back in the day when Nirvana and Pearl Jam were new bands, the word "alternative" was the proper adjective used to describe their music. It was a change from popular or "Top 40" music. But increasingly, this music is now in the mainstream, which makes the name "alternative" questionable.

Bear with me here. In the circles in which I move, the normative style of music is Alternative. You go to any heat of a Battle of the Bands, and I can guarantee you that at least 80% of the bands involved will be playing your Seattle grunge-esque sort of music. If everyone is jumping on the Alternative bandwagon, then to what is it an alternative? Seems to me that to be truly "alternative" in this kind of group, you DON'T want to be listening to Alternative Music. Whatever type of music is "alternative" can't we call it something that's a bit more appropriate?
