Alternative rock is a genre that emerged in the 1980s as a response to mainstream rock. It is characterized by its experimental and unconventional approach to music, often incorporating elements of punk, grunge, and indie rock. Alternative rock bands often prioritize raw emotion and authenticity over polished production values. This genre has produced some of the most influential and beloved bands of the past few decades, including those known for their energetic and funky sound, introspective and cerebral lyrics, and hard-hitting and melodic rock anthems.
