Definition funny of Alternative:
1)Someone who listens to what they like. if they like a song, they listen to it. if it is RnB but they like it, they listen to it. if it's heavy metal, and they like it they listen to it. if it's bubblegum pop but they like it they listen to it. they also wear what they like. if they like a designer shirt, they wear it, if they like a bright pink pair of trews they'll wear it. (even the boys) basically, someone who really is their own person, and not the hypocritical non-conformists 2)The label used in schools for people who are nots chavs, goths skaters or emos
Townie: oooooh ma god, you're a goth cos you listen to slipknot! Alternative: I don't listen to slipknot Townie: why you wearin' a slipknot hoodie then? Alternative: i'm wearing a yellow t-shirt and a black jacket, since when does that mean i listen to slipknot? Slipknot are crap!
A label for the label-less
*Some dude*: Why don't you dress like all your "punk" friends? *Alternative*: Because I don't want to...
alternative is someone who does whatever the fuck they want and doesnt care about what anyone says. they could listen to rock,punk,metal ect, but not care about the baggyness of trews, and wear short denim and scally clothes. its up to the person really. it isnt someone trying to set up a new "thing" at all.
*fill in name here*: EEEEEEH, why u listening to THAT?! Alternative: because i want to, jerk *same name as 1st*:...............oh.
Both a genre of music and...something else. The music: Alternative and indie are similar, and both came from college rock, which is what happened when goth became more mainstream (and goth was what happened when punk became more mainstream). The difference between alternative and indie is simple. Indie bands are on an independent label (or unsigned) and alternative bands aren't. Thus, alternative is more 'mainstream' than indie. The...other thing: Like most music, people who listen to it are sometimes labeled by it. Alternative and indie are once again similar, but often times indie kids are contemptuous of alternative kids because they're mainstream, which is stupid because the whole point is the music, and is also the reason that punk and goth etc. died because they became 'mainstream'. Thus, sometimes indie kids are obsessed with not becoming mainstream, and consider bands that sign with a major label and the people who listen to the sellouts. Alternative kids usually care less about that (even if they listen to indie bands) and listen to the music that they like, even if it isn't indie or even alternative or rock, the music they like is the music they like. Like indie kids though, alternative kids will never label themselves that way, and no one will ever label them that way either, except to say 'people who listen to alt'. If you label yourself that way, you're probably just like someone who labels themselves punk or goth, trying to be 'unique' instead of yourself.
