Probably the band that made Alternative music the most accessible, and made things easy for All-bands to come, was Nirvana, and the musical genius of Kurt Cobain.
In a quote from a magazine he said "Alternative music is being musically and rhythmically retarded...we play so hard we can't tune our guitars fast enough, and people can relate to that." The first alternative band was the Ramones in 1976.
Before the Ramones, thrash, hard-core, and punk didn't exist.
This style became known as the only genre which was not intended for mass consumption.
It was written for the artist first, if people liked it that was icing on the cake.
These bands were and are the cutting-edge of pop music, constantly changing the face of what we will be listening to next.
