Alternative rock style music first emerged in the 1980's and has been gaining popularity ever since. Subgenres such as grunge, indie rock, and Britpop are all included within the alternative musical genre. The creation of Lollapalooza in 1991, as well as the efforts of alternative bands like R.E.M., Nirvana, and The Cure helped to establish alternative music as the powerful genre it is today. Though tickets to see your favorite alternative bands may be hard to get because they are in such high demand, TicketNetwork always has the best selection of The Shins in stock.
