Great Quotations: Kim Deal of The Breeders


Videos by American Songwriter

“Alternative” was a word coined by the media, to get more money for their advertisers. We were like, “What’s up? Nobody calls us ‘alternative.’ Why do they keep putting it on the cover of magazines?” Actually, you know who said “alternative music”? My mother. And everybody else in Dayton, all the truck drivers and the cowboys and stuff, they’d go, “I’ll tell you what it’s alternative to. Good music.”
