 College rock - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the USA, college rock was a term used to describe 1980s alternative rock before the term "alternative" came into common usage.
So named because it was primarily played on campus radio stations, these bands combined the experimentation of post punk and new wave with a more melodic pop style and an underground sensibility.
By the 1990s, however, the genre had been supplanted by grunge and indie rock.

"Alternative rock" is essentially an umbrella term for underground music that has emerged in the wake of the punk rock movement since the mid 1980s.
In the late 80s, the US underground scene and college radio were dominated by college rock bands like the Pixies, They Might Be Giants, Dinosaur Jr, and Throwing Muses as well as post-punk survivors from Britain.
"Indie rock" is still sometimes used to describe the alternative rock of the 1980s, but as a genre term it generally refers to alternative music that stayed underground after the mainstream breakthrough of the genre in the early 1990s
