Hi,

alternative

Used as a kind of music ,it means what? Very generally speaking, 'alternative' in this kind of context means 'not mainstream', 'something that offers people another choice'. The 'alternative' thing is often simpler than the 'mainstream' version.

More radical, unusual kind of music.

Best wishes, Clive

It is mostly used for a specific style of Rock music, for example for Rock bands like Nirvana (more alternative), Creed, Nickelback (less alternative).
Thank you very much!
