Alternative Rock is a broad genre of rock music that emerged in the 1980s and became widely popular in the 1990s. It is characterized by a combination of punk, indie, and metal influences, and often features distorted guitars, unconventional song structures, and lyrics that explore social and political issues. Alternative Rock bands often experiment with different sounds and styles, and the genre has spawned a variety of subgenres, including grunge, post-punk, emo, and indie rock.
