What is Alternative rock? Back in the 1970s it was rock music and musicians who couldn't get a contract with a record company. But back in the 70s it was called punk. Punk musicians played what they wanted and didn't expect to make any money. Ironically, punk music created the foundation for the inventiveness of Nirvana, a huge success. Nirvana began as a garage band, then became a grunge band and finally, a success.

And now, besides alt rock we also have alt rock music videos. Here's one by The Plastic Surgeons of Rock and Roll.
