I live in the NY metro area and we have two Alternative stations, one on regular radio and one on HD radio. They are both pretty good, but Alternative music these days is really pretty wimpy. We used to have K-Rock, on regular radio, then on HD radio – that station played modern alternative plus harder stuff, like Royal Blood, Avenged Sevenfold, Rise Against, the one that starts with a V that I can’t recall right now, etc.
The funny thing is that Alternative stations will play harder stuff, but only if it was released in the 90s – grunge, Green Day, Queens of the Stone Age, and so on. But, they won’t play any new hard rock.
Anyway, do you have a great Alternative/Hard Rock station where you are? If you tell me the call letters, I’m sure I can stream it. Any other suggestions for some kind of updated Spotify playlist or something?
I have easy streaming access to Spotify, Radio.com, and IHeartRadio, if that helps.
