The fine artists at U.K. design studio Dorothy have put together a masterfully specific poster that fully encompasses the many twists and turns “Alternative” music has taken since its inception so many years ago.
How many years ago? Well, that’s certainly a source of much contention — and owning this poster will likely be the bane of your existence at any parties you throw.
The point is, no one agrees where “unknown” ends and “Alternative” begins — but you can place your bets safely that whatever you call it, it’ll probably end up as “Pop” in the long run anyway.
Also available are the history of Hip Hop, classic chocolate bars(!) and more!
Check out the posters below and visit Dorothy’s website to pick one up for yourself!
