    Default Alternative is the new Pop.

    It is, so I wonder...what's the new Alternative? I vote oldschool rock! But wait...that's classic rock...so Pop is now Alternative? I dunno, I think the black Pop artists all do R&B and the white ones are all either doing techno or white rap.

    What was the original alternative an alternative to in the first place? It has always been the hardest to define genre for myself.

    It doesn't 'suck' in my eyes; gangster rap sucks because it's all about money and mansions and hookers, but there is rap other than that. Generally, nu-metal is also rap music, and rapcore, so those that like Korn and early A7X can't classify themselves as 'rap haters'. There is a popuar consensus that rap music sucks; it does, 90% of it. You just have to look deeper to find the answers.

    Personally I don't see how something can be called "Alternative" while their merchandise is sold at Hot Topic.

    I would have to disagree, seeing as 99.9% of rappers say the same thing in every song.

    Well fuck you Hicky. I'm busy listening to Korn right now and it is not rap. You obviously don't know Korn.

    Early A7X was Metalcore, though.

    You know nothing about Korn, then. They created Nu-Metal by mixing hip-hop beats with funk and alternative metal and a bunch of other Genres. Note the hip-hop, which is basically another term for Rap.

    Hicky's right, you know.

    Alternative is just for some band who can't describe their genre without calling themselves "emo"

    and here lately "alternative" seems very popular.

    How is any of today's music considered grunge? Explain yourself immediately.

    Anyway..
    I've never been able to accurately define "alternative". It's always confused me...
