What is your worldly view? 

Is the sin of being too real your sinew?

Alternative rock rings the bell of your soul?

You are so undone, 

Originality is the religion you dole?

Show your flaws without fear…

Is your inner self, you wish to hear?

Are you too solemn to want to be pretty? Seeking your higher self through the no-nonsense, no-bullshit persona within the music and lyrics of Alternative rock and sub-rock genres. Is your nirvana searching for a deeper meaning? Willing to swim across the tides of tricksters, beguilers, and dissemblers? Evolving from the poltergeist chains of grunge rock as a stereotypical teen to sublime emotions of the classic rock ballads. A musical genre, a lifeline your heart beats to, living under its belly vicariously, to germinate into an eternal free spirit.

As depressed as Kurt Cobian relating to Nirvana, backstroking through identity crisis as a teen and taking penance in rebel of Linkin Park, mellowness of Bryan Adams, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, through the discography of Lynard Sknyard, Pearl Jam, and the list goes on.

When Pink Floyd overthrows conventional education, The Beatles pave a way for eternity exploring thoughts and emotions, Def Leppard singing a motley of meaningful things in life we experience. There is always more to love than sweetness and beautiful feelings. Love is the toughest thing to deal with when its real, coz love lets you discover your inner daemons and gives you strength to fight them off, because you want to love to the highest purity, breaking away all the flakiness.

Unbound to the ways of the world, living by your imperfections, flaws, gumption, learning and unlearning, Alternative rock is a wide spectrum of thoughts and emotions in poetry and lyrics with upbeat music score that ignites the realm within you. Discover yourself over and again in the musical fete of rock genres with a bang that screams to say anything but unreal.

For those who dare to wear vulnerabilities on their sleeve, and get up and go with a vastness in your soul, because you know that being unbound is your journey through different dimensions. Beyond the veil of superstitions, false faith, conditioned notions, lays a realm, the penultimate opening up your inner self destroying misleading ideologies, coz everything in life is too real to experience and keep evolving.
