alternative music
music that is produced by performers who are outside the musical mainstream, that is typically regarded as more eclectic, original, or challenging than most popular music (such as conventional rock, pop, or country), and that is often distributed by independent record labels

To me, alternative music is music that doesn’t fit into any other categorical genre. This is why I love the genre. The music that is classified as alternative blends genres together to create its own beauty, and to me that is magic.
