The Evolution of Underground Music
Transcript of The Evolution of Underground Music
The bands often aren't looking to please the masses, but more for an elite group of followers and their own personal pleasure. The underground scene is not recent: It started in
the 1960's with counterculture, more commonly known as the Hippie movement.
Through the decades it has evolved and given birth to many different genres, some who are now considered mainstream, such as Hip Hop. Dubstep: Fusion of 40's and 50's rockabilly and punk music,
pioneered by The Cramps (awesomeness at its best). Psychobilly includes many subgenres such as: thrashabilly, trashabilly, punkabilly, surfabilly and gothabilly. Some bands: Mad Marge and the Stonecutters, The Stray Cats, Rezurex, The Creepshow and the Necromantix. "The Mainstream comes to you, but you have to go to the Underground"

-The Vibrators Progressive Rock: Pretty much the opposite of punk, full of technique and more complex schemes. Bands like Yes, Genesis, Rush, King Crimson and Supertramp were instrumental (harhar) in forming the Prog. sound. 1980's New Wave: Post-Punk: An uprising of the underground scene into the mainstream, combining Prog. with Punk and Ska.
The Cure, The Talking Heads, The Police, the Culture Club and New Order all deserve a mention. Meanwhile on the back burner, bands like the Smiths, R.E.M., The Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Pixies are innovating in their own ways. 1990's Grunge: Born in Seattle, brought into the light by Nirvana and Nevermind (1991), other grunge bands include: The Melvins, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Smashing Pumpkins, Mudhoney, Hole, Dinosaur Junior, Alice in Chains, Sonic Youth, Bush, Collective Soul and L7. Electronic/Industrial: Fusion of rock and electronic music. Hard to qualify bands of this genre with a general description besides that the music is often transgressive and discordent.
