Default What is Alternative Rock?

I have heard people saythat they love Alternative music, but I don't actually understand what's so different about Alternative and regular Rock. I've also seen bands like Dropkick Murphys and Rancid be classified as Alternative and That confused me to no end. I always thought Alternative was the Pop Rocky stuff. If someone could help out, That'd be great=)

It is a very good information.Glad to have a new rock station since 106.7 the died off. Thanks 92.3 now i have decent music to listen to.I like Red Hot Chili Peppers: 'Under The Bridge' songs.This alternative rock song was a well-regarded critical darling, called by one critic "an integral part of the 1990s alterna-landscape.

It can also use the branches of music, medicine, religion, etc, which are relatively unknown and unpopular.
In other words, there is the alternative to mainstream.

The term is relatively meaningless. I take it that the term "alternative" can only be used of branches of music, medicine, religion etc that are relatively unknown and unpopular. In other words it is the alternative to the "main stream".
