Alt Rock

Alternative rock (also called alternative music, alt rock or simply alternative) is a genre of rock music that emerged from the independent music underground of the 1980s and became widely popular by the 1990s.

LET'S TALK RADIO Most music lovers assume that if artists are being PLAYED on the radio that they're being PAID. This is an understandable assumption. Music IS a product after all and radio stations sell it as their main product in the form of advertising. But let's set the record straight. There are thousands of radio stations in the United States. They are split up into two distinct camps: Commercial stations (Country, Top 40, Alt Rock, etc.) and College/Community stations like NPR. (This second group is often referred to as "Non-Comm", meaning non-commercial stations). In order for a radio station to broadcast it has to pay for a license of course. AND it has to pay a fee to one of the only THREE Performing Rights Organizations (PROs) that currently have a monopoly on collecting money on behalf of musicians for airplay. NONE of that money goes to musicians. You heard that right. ZERO. It ONLY goes to the songwriters. That's problem Musicians and singers starve while the songwriters barely squeak by. S ...

Looking for a bass player for an alt rock project I'm doing. Have an arsenal of original songs so gigs can start immediately. Think Gaslight Anthem/Green Day/Frank Turner/Foo Fighters/Autopilot Off with other various influences along those lines. I'm a bit of an ageist. 21-30 preferably, but can wiggle a bit.

Stillpoint (Alt Rock, Belfast) are on the hunt for a new bassist if you're interested drop them an email on stillpoint "A lot of the time it's easier to deal with loss by making a joke about things. For once in our lives we're going try to be totally serious. It is with great sadness we're announcing the departure of Jack 'Baby Face' Courtney from Stillpoint. There isn't really much we can say about this other than we're gutted to be losing such a great player, sense of humour and most of all, friend, to bigger and better things. Jack brought a lot to Stillpoint and it won't be the same without him. All we can do now is promise to accept no less than the best to replace him.

Best Albums of 2012 - A Personal List: This is the list of international albums released in 2012 that I'd personally recommend: 1) Good Kid, M.A.A.D City - Kendrick Lamar (West Coast Hip Hop, gangsta rap): I am a fan of Rock Music and listen mostly to Rock/Alt Rock records (and the zillion subgenres), but I am not averse to music outside rock. Though I strictly go by recommendations from people/websites I respect when I hunt for new music (Non-Rock). It's hard to believe that I used to despise Hip-Hop & RAP blindly until a few years ago. I would have laughed if someone said am gonna place a Rap/Hip-Hop album atop of my list. But that's exactly what has happened now! This one here is my favourite album of the year hands down (and in top 5-10 of most major music magazines worldwide). Kendrick narrates his life in his hometown, Compton, CA, his gangsta life, his losses and how he managed to get back on life's track. This is his 2nd album and his major label debut. The good thing is you get the feeling that t ...

I may lose some fans, then again I might gain some fans over my next step in my music. The real people who just appreciates good music will understand. I am no longer limiting my future performances to that of Hip Hop. I have produced pop / R&B / Alt Rock music for years but have never publicized any of it. The next two albums to be released will be my LAST "Hip Hop" albums. From then on...my music is just that...MY MUSIC! I'm dropping all the labels because quite frankly...I'm beyond that. Love it or hate it..and I'm okay with either way you feel about it...just know I'm staying true to my music expression. If you like Mic Doja music you are about to get a deeper perspective!

I do not believe I will be watching "Rock of Ages" lol. Isnt Hair/Glam metal horrible torture on its own without adding horrible Glee-esque dance routines and Tom Cruise??? Yes it is, thats the correct answer. Hair/Glam metal was just about the death of Hard Rock and Metal. Luckily the 90's showed up with Grunge and Alt Rock and brought it back to life. Lol
