College Rock is a term that was used to describe alternative rock before the term “alternative” came into common usage, because it was played on student-run university and college campus radio stations located in the United States and Canada in the 1980s. The stations’ playlists were often created by students who avoided the mainstream rock played on commercial radio stations. The bands of this category combined the experimentation of post-punk and New wave with a more melodic pop style and an underground sensibility. It is not necessarily a genre term, but there do exist some common aesthetics among college rock bands. Artists such as R.E.M., U2, The Cure, Camper Van Beethoven, The Smiths, XTC and The Replacements became some of the better-known examples in the mid 1980s. It also embraced the 90′s and noughties ‘Acoustic Rock’ of Jeff Buckley, Radiohead & Ryan Adams

Many might argue that the entire Seattle scene of Nirvana, Pearl jam, Soundgarden et all was born of this religion just as Stipe and co began to lose theirs! Even Green Day and Jimmy Eat World owe a debt to the ‘scene‘ in fact any band that has picked up a guitar in the last 25 years that has not had the ‘metal’ tags around it’s neck has one foot stuck in the genre… The modern age has seen CMJ (College Music Journal) take up the strain of the pressure placed upon artists to gain coverage outside that secure mainstream bands such as Against Me, Rise Against, Royal Blood and Gaslight Anthem are ‘Sons Of Springsteen’ and owe just as much to the ‘College Rock’ tag, Tramps like us may have been Born To Run, or Born To Lose but we were Born To Be Heard!

Those (like me) who remember when we really were in a ‘Radio Free Europe’ and there it is, Modern Day College Rock! music that has something to say, it has an edge BUT it has melody and this makes The Buttons right at The Front! This is a great ‘Retro-Modern’ music that’s got a long road ahead with shades firmly on for their bright future. Now if we can only convince the Radio people that College Rock is back from black and ready to become major unit shifters then we really would be talking, but it was hard first time around, I don’t envisage it being any easier now, but I for one am going to try! Get Fraggled! Get Juiced!

Oh and one more thing! Over %75 of ‘College Radio’ And ‘Alternative‘ ones in the USA have MORE listeners on FM and More hits to their site & More ‘likes‘ and interaction on their Social media than %90 of the UK’s Commercial Radio Stations including most of the ‘Big‘ hitters like heart, capital etc. And they wipe the floor with City/Juice in my city of choice! In fact the combined listenership of those two stations does not equal the biggest of the Alt-College stations in America. So think on next time you spin the dial to find the same ol’ song and dance!
