Pretend it’s the early years of the 21st century, your just chilling in your room playing some Gamecube, decked out in the freshest Tony Hawk gear, and Blink 182 is blasting in the background…good times, right? It sure seems so, but the river that is time waits for no one, and we have all aged since then. With that time, some things had ... Read More »

How Rise Against Rises Above

Definitely a different sounding band from what we usually play, but eagle-eared listeners will notice we do play their songs once in a while. Rise Against started out in Chicago in 1999 looking for success in the Melodic-Hardcore scene (which isn’t usually thought of when talking about music types in Chicago). After a few starting albums and a shift in a ... Read More »

What Makes CAKE So Delicious to Listen To

Credit goes to Christopher Mark

One of the flagship bands when talking about Alt Rock as a whole has to be CAKE. They have what is without a doubt one of the most unique sounds out there, what with, their wonderful use of trumpet, instrumental styles, and that glorious, and attention-grabbing vocals provided by John McCrea.

Credit not recorded...

I present to you a band that is really pushing what it means to be Alt Rock, but in a good way. The Offspring started out as a literal garage band in…wait, 1984? Like over 30 years ago…dang. While the band has had a pretty solid following up till the turn of the century where it felt as though the ... Read More »

Like that name? Pretty proud of myself there, but let’s stayed focused here. Van Halen is a group that has been without a doubt a staple of not only 80’s rock, but the genre as a whole.

Gather and watch as I proceed to do my best to not let my personal opinion effect this rerospecti- nope can’t do it. Look I love all Alt groups equally, but Muse just…gets to me on a different level. Ok, *exhale* let’s just go over how they are as a band and what has made them a mainstay on the station, calmly. ...
