Alt/Punk Music

Everything from early garage rockers the Stooges to noise artisans Sonic Youth, and from synth-pop royalty New Order to post-modern pop of Beck. The "alternative" tag was introduced in the early 1990s as an alternative to mainstream radio. Alternative represented a collision of several genres whose momentum had been building for several decades.
