The women of the 90s came in many shapes and sizes and attitudes. One such attitude was the alternative movement that came about because of rock and roll. Alternative music is a kind of rock music that came about in the '80s but was made extremely popular in the '90s. The word 'alternative' was used to distinguish itself from its parent.
Because of its popularity in the 90s, many bands and singers decided to make the genre their own and among those performers were the likes of R.E.M, Violent Femmes, The Dream Syndicate and The Feelies. These bands were heavily responsible for moving this style of music from the underground to a broader audience.
