Alternative is the Alternative: Pop Takes Over the Music Industry

On a list of the most amazing things in my life, music rates pretty high (alongside my friends and family of course). Everything I hear on the radio is pop. Pop is a huge in the modern music industry. One might even say it is taking over all other genres of music. My music of choice would definitely be anything that falls into the category of “alternative”. For those of you who don’t know what in the world I’m talking about, alternative music is any and all music that cannot be defined by one category. Within this music you can find overtones of rock, folk, and electronic. It is thought to have “started” in the late 60s to early 70s but was really brought to public attention by bands such as R.E.M. and Pixies. Some call it alternative, some call it indie. I call it heaven to my ears. I’m a big fan of underground bands. Right now my favorites are Sleeper Agent, Plastic Visions, Middle Class Rut, Morning Teleportation, and Turbo Fruits. Go check them out for some music that’ll rock your world!
