About & Contact

AlternativeNation.net launched in May 2009 (originally called GrungeReport.net) and covers 90’s alternative rock bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, Mudhoney, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Mark Lanegan Band, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jane’s Addiction, Hole, Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Queens of the Stone Age, the Pixies, Garbage, Weezer, Radiohead, 311, Fuel, Filter, and Green Day. It is owned by BWB Media Inc. and operated out of Newport Beach, CA. We also cover artists who have come out in the last decade and carry on the tradition of guitar based rock like Cage the Elephant, Dead Sara, Wolfmother, Jack White, Silversun Pickups, and Deftones. The one thing in common with the artists we cover is they all rock (or at least did at some point) and are under the age of 55.

AlternativeNation.net was formerly named GrungeReport.net from May 2009-June 2013. The new website domain name was paid for thanks to a generous donation from reader Joseph Thomas and another reader named Andrei Toth came up with the new name. We have over 100,000 followers on social media including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
