Alternative Bands

- Throughout the years there have been many rock-style bands that did not quite fit on rock radio. These bands soon came to be played on "alternative" radio, such as college, community, and pirate stations. Hence the alternative rock moniker stuck for these uniquely different rock bands. Some of my favorite alternative bands from the early 1990's include Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, and Radiohead. The Smashing Pumpkins follow their lead singer's, Billy Corgan, theory that, "Great music completely obliterates any conceptions of genre." The Smashing Pumpkins took their local Chicago sound of metal, alt-rock, psychedelic dream pop, and shared it with the world....   [tags: Music]

Multiple washers were added until the maximum amount of weights were in the basket. The shorter rubber band took more weight in order to stretch the rubber band, however the larger rubber band would not require as much force to change the rate of stretch of the rubber band....   [tags: material stress analysis]
