  Alternative rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Most alternative bands were unified by their collective debt to punk, which laid the groundwork for underground and alternative music in the 1970s.
Alternative music and the rebellious, DIY ethic it espoused became one of the inspirations for grunge, an alternative sub-genre created in the 80s that launched a large movement in mainstream music in the early 90s.

Alternative Dance marries the underground sensibility and melodic song structure of alternative and indie rock with the electronic beats, synths and/or samples, and club orientation of post-disco dance music.
Those qualities put a more human face on alternative dance, as opposed to the more mechanized feel of much standard club/dance music; as a result, the performers are much more closely identified with their music, which often possesses a signature style, texture, or fusion of specific musical elements.
In addition to alternative rock, alternative dance was most heavily influenced by synth-pop, acid house, and trip-hop; each of those movements helped spawn a corresponding cachet of alternative dance artists, and had a major impact on Britain's late-'80s Madchester scene, as well as the pop crossover success of several indie-oriented trip-hop artists during the '90s.

 Altermedia Scotland » ALTERNATIVE MUSIC
Alternative music, as we know it today, has developed in a constant and uninterrupted manner for more than thirty years (from the late 60’s until today).
We don’t have before us, therefore, a music happening tied to the emotions of a particular historical period, such as is the case with war songs or songs of social protest, but instead, a form of expression, communication, promotion and, also, propaganda which has been consolidated in time.
Finally, the salient aspect of alternative music, that which in fact qualifies it as such and distinguishes it from any other type of music, be it pop, political, ethnic, folk or traditional, is that the spread of alternative music occurred outside the usual channels.

The degree to which the faith appears in the music varies from artist to artist.
