Alternative Rock
ALTERNATIVE ROCK (also called ALTERNATIVE MUSIC, ALT-ROCK or simply ALTERNATIVE) is a style of rock music that emerged from the independent music underground of the 1980s and became widely popular in the 1990s. In this instance, the word "alternative" refers to the genre's distinction from mainstream rock music. The term's original meaning was broader, referring to a generation of musicians unified by their collective debt to either the musical style or simply the independent, DIY ethos of punk rock , which in the late 1970s laid the groundwork for alternative music. At times, "alternative" has been used as a catch-all description for music from underground rock artists that receives mainstream recognition, or for any music, whether rock or not, that is seen to be descended from punk rock (including some examples of punk itself, as well as new wave , and post-punk )

CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 Influence * 3 See also * 4 References HISTORY Glam punk has been seen as a backlash to the hippie folk music sensibilities of the 1960s. Lucy O\'Brien defines the New York Dolls style as combining " Rolling Stones raunch with heavy borrowings from the girl group era". The band was highly influential in New York City 's club scene of the early 1970s, as well as later generations of musicians, and their style was adopted by a number of New York bands, including Harlots of 42nd Street. The Dolls broke up in 1976, by which time the trend had already metamorphosed into punk and begun to move on to new wave

HEAVY METAL (or simply METAL) is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the United Kingdom and the United States .

During the mid-1970s, Judas Priest helped spur the genre's evolution by discarding much of its blues influence; Motörhead introduced a punk rock sensibility and an increasing emphasis on speed

Homestead Records
HOMESTEAD RECORDS was a Long Island, New York
Long Island, New York
-based sublabel of music distributor Dutch East India Trading . It was founded in 1984 by Sam Berger, who was the American independent buyer for Dutch East India Trading. Berger was finding that many bands who had perhaps released their own first 45 were having difficulty coming up with the finances to press followups. He was able to convince the owner of the company to press and distribute records for bands that already had recorded an album, and have the bands supply the artwork. It is considered instrumental in launching the post-hardcore and noise rock genres. When Berger left to work with Midnight Records, he recommended 18-year-old Gerard Cosloy , whom he knew from Boston and who published a fanzine that Homestead distributed. Cosloy went on to sign many of the notable acts. Cosloy was succeeded by Ken Katkin and later by Steven Joerg
