Music Facts: Alternative
Alternative rock was born from the indie underground in the 1970s and reached mainstream popularity in the 1990s.
Today, alternative has evolved beyond its guitar-driven roots to a sound that encompasses many genres, such as pop, rock, rap, and Latin.
Recent alternative GRAMMY winners include Fiona Apple, Vampire Weekend and Beck.
