Why Do They Call It "Alternative Rock" When It's The Norm?

And why must it suck? Here's a dare- open iTunes (or whatever) and go to the "Alternative" section and listen to this stuff, and tell me truthfully it doesn't all sound the same, and tired. As you may have surmised, I continue to be disappointed in my search for GOOD new music. The only thing so far that I really liked was "The Stoop" by Little Jackie. Have you heard something good? Help a brother out!

Only this little ditty, which seems stuck in my head...

Music is so "subjective" it's hard to recomment anything.

I like a lot of folk that turns other people's stomachs, rarely like anything considered "popular"
(except "Baby's Got Back") and prefer getting lost in the old rock classic stations...

But I know what you mean.

Because it's an alternative to the top-40 pap that plays on AM?

Damned if I know. I haven't added much new to my collection in a couple of years.
