In the ’90s, I had three friends who went to the same school. We all liked some kind of alternative music.
Two of us were fans of The Smiths and The Cure.
We’re still friends to this day, and despite our differences in tastes in music and what we do with our lives, I still consider them to be friends.
These are the kind of friends you never forget.
My second friend was also a fan of The Cure, and it didn’t take long for us to become friends. We’re still friends today.
My third friend was a fan of Iron Maiden, who he still loves to this day. We had a falling out when I found out he did a disastrous interview with Howard Stern about drugs and alcohol.
I was very disappointed to hear that he was a fan of Howard Stern. I remember listening to his Metallica records during high school and thinking that he was such a nerd.
While we were all different, we still enjoyed the same kind of music. Alternative music was the perfect soundtrack to our lives at the time.
Alternative music will never be the soundtrack to anyone’s life who isn’t a girl who lives in her parents’ basement.
Alternative music is more convenient
If you don’t like Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Maroon 5, and Carly Rae Jepsen, you’re not really a true alternative music fan.
Most bands I mentioned aren’t mainstream artists, but they’re definitely popular artists.
To get the latest in alternative music, you have to be on iTunes. To get the latest in alternative music, you have to have a computer or mobile device with an Internet connection.
To get the latest in alternative music, you have to have a reasonable Internet connection speed.
If you have a mobile device, you’re in the minority, and you’re at a serious disadvantage.
When it comes to alternative music, there are a lot more choices available to you. If you have a laptop, you’re in the minority.
You’re at an even greater disadvantage if you don’t have a computer or a smartphone with an Internet connection.
Alternative music has been the soundtrack to so many of our lives, and we’re happy it’s still in the game, but there are so many alternatives out there now that finding your favorite band is now more difficult than ever before.
You don’t have to settle for an album, though. You can listen to an entire album or a playlist of tracks on Spotify, or use the Youtube Music app.
You can enjoy all the music in the world without owning any of it. Or, you can spend a ton of money on music.
There are tons of apps and sites dedicated to streaming music. One website, the largest iTunes alternative, has over 90,000 songs.
Alternative music is the oldies
Alternative music is the same age as the kids who listen to it. There’s a reason they keep it alive. We all love older music.
We grew up with the songs. We remember them and they bring back great memories.
Alternative music was the soundtrack to our youth, and we can’t imagine it being any other way.
Alternative music is for the not-so-intelligent
The lyrics of alternative music are a totally different language. It’s not all about the words. When you listen to a Taylor Swift song, it doesn’t have to make sense.
The lyrics of most alternative music are just about what we want to hear. Not about what we need to hear.
It’s all about the music, and it’s easier to relate to lyrics that are about how cool our favorite singer looks, or how much they love their group of friends than it is to relate to lyrics about making love, or where we are, or who we love.
You can interpret lyrics in a thousand different ways, but it’s not about what we actually say.
It’s what we like to hear. Alternative music was the soundtrack to our youth, and we can’t imagine it being any other way.
We’ve been playing music in one form or another since the beginning of time.
It’s just that modern music, which is more music than anything else, sounds so much better than the music we listened to in our youth.
You can love alternative music, but it doesn’t have to be right for you.
Alternative music is invented now
Your best guess as to why alternative music has taken the music industry by storm is that it’s a convenient way to market the band and to sell CDs, which have lost their luster.
You can read about how that’s not really true in this article.
I guess that in the early 2000s, an amazing new band took the music world by storm, with amazing new music that was new for mainstream listeners.
I know what you’re thinking: “Who?”. The truth is, I can’t really tell you who exactly took the music world by storm in the early 2000s.
I do know that without the musicians who broke out in the early 2000s, I wouldn’t be here today, as a music fan.
They have filled the hole in the music industry that mainstream music just can’t fill.
They can fill it because they aren’t mainstream.
