Hi! And welcome to my Alternative Music Test. Firstly, this test is NOT about the rock genre called Alternative Music, rather it is about music that is not mainstream, music that people who really know about music listen too. Music that either doesn't get into the charts or has its own specialised charts. You can expect questions about obscure rock artists, world music, folk music, jazz, contemporary classical music etc.
If your musical tastes are limited to chart pop chances are you will get very few questions right. If however, your music collection is diverse and varied and all encompassing you will do well. Just so as it's not too difficult, most questions relate to well known artists. Also, very important, no cheating by looking things up on the net. I want to know what knowledge is in your head right now. If you happen to have any of the CD's I mention, it is ok to look them up to get the answer though. Ultimately only you will know if you cheated, but every cheat gets found out some day!
