GG - Research into 'Alternative rock' genre (draft)

Alternative rock was introduced in the late 1970's early 1980's as was mainly an underground phenomenon. Only the occasional song became a hit such as; The Rolling Stones. A lot of Alternative rock bands toured regularly and released low budget albums as part of their underground work. The genre is seen to reject commercialism of mainstream culture. By the start of the 1990's Alternative rock started to become a hit in British society, with American bands such as; Velvet Underground, having big success in the UK.
In the early 21st century other Alternative rock bands such as; Franz Ferdinand have emerged, but it is seen that R&B and Rap are taking the main stage at the moment when it comes to super genres.
