I haven't enjoyed most "mainstream" music in years. I assume that means whatever is played on top 40, club music or modern rock radio stations right?
Although bands I enjoy have been on SNL, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, also commercials and stuff. So maybe indie bands are more mainstream than I realize. But for the past 8-9 years I've been into progressive rock, classical, 80s new wave, power pop and very recently, some thrash and progressive metal.
I'm confused..what's Mainstream? When you said Mainstream I assumed that meant what was played on the radio (Beatles would be included..) like anything actually popular and out there and non mainstream would be underground stuff that few have heard of, cult popularity like stuff maybe played on a college radio station or only heard in bars.
Like..I thought Mainstream was anything that never popular to the masses, so Beatles, Beach Boys, even 40s music if it was ever popular or played on the radio would still be Mainstream? Underground music =not mainstream? Or is Mainstream only what is popular at the curren time frame?
if Mainstream means anything played on the radio that is/was ever popular, I'd say i've always been interested in that and have never really gotten into the edgier bands that are not so much played on the radio.
