In the ’80s, “Alternative” in Alt Rock actually meant something. The alternative to pop music, to R&B, to classic rock. Some of the bands that started out on the college radio circuit became huge, like U2, REM, The Police. Others built giant cult followings like the Violent Femmes, The Replacements, Madness and the Pixies. This month IndieFest celebrates ’80s Alt Rock with aplay list of some of the hit music videos of 120 Minutes and other fringe music programming of the years between punk and grunge. We know you know all the words, but just in case, we’ll have the lyrics on screen for you to sing along to.
