What makes alternative music considered alternative?

Report as

If it used lots of synth and vocalized harmony in contest with the instruments. In short, it uses lots of electrical alteration

Not necessarily. Mumford & Sons, Weezer, and Death Cab for Cutie are all alternative.

Well yeah, there are some exceptions. But most that are considered alternative have those qualities

when its not pop or metal or country. basically when you can't put it in a mainstream category.

and btw I could name 50 alternative bands that didn't use any keyboards or synths. so electronic has nothing to do with it.
