Finnish Alternative Rock is a genre of rock music that originated in Finland in the late 1980s. It is characterized by its melodic, often melancholic sound, and its use of traditional instruments such as the accordion, mandolin, and violin. The genre is heavily influenced by folk music, and often incorporates elements of punk, metal, and pop. Finnish Alternative Rock bands often sing in both English and Finnish, and the lyrics often focus on themes of love, loss, and nature. Popular bands in this genre include HIM, The Rasmus, and The 69 Eyes.
