The 90s produced some incredible artists which wholly embraced the Do It Yourself ethos out of a combination of integrity and necessity. They created a true alternative to the garbage on the radio calling itself "Alternative Rock" or "Modern Rock", which was, for the most part, not really alternative to anything. These were the artists that shows like "MTV's 120 Minutes" show would play because the producers could sense a groundswell of support, though they were relegated to late night on Sunday nights when most people, other than diehard fans of the genre would be unlikely to be tuning in.
