Playlist Research wants to move away from the standard "alternative" playlists that are defined by industry trade magazines. Since the radio format is nowhere near as successful as it was 20 years when it was at its peak, a new methodology and definiton for the alternative format will be explored. The goal will be to combine rock and alternative on the rock list, which has already been the case for years anyway. Playlist Research wants the alternative list to be unique from the rock list since much of the music sounds like it's based on old formulas. At the moment, "alternative" has become a misnomer and just an additional marketing term for rock.
