Indie/Alternative Music

Spun on college radio and distributed on cheap cassettes, Indie Rock has ironically provided the rock mainstream with some of its most influential albums. R.E.M.'s "Murmur" and the Replacements' "Let it Be" became cult sensations in the 1980s, while the Archers of Loaf's "Icky Mettle" and Elliott Smith's "Either/Or" achieved success in the '90s.
