Not to be confused with the other (incorrect) definition of alternateen (which actually is an umbrella of Punk
, and Death Metal
, all in one tight little generalization), Alternateens are the undereducated Hipsters
. They look relatively indie
, but stay within earth tones, have close to hippie
-esque hair, and tend to say they listen to "Alternative Music" not knowing the specifics of the genre. Alternative
encompasses all subgenres of rock (see whats above, give or take some). Alternateens are mostly found in small towns and are teenagers that try too hard with knowing so little about culture.
We were walking down the street in that tiny port town when we passed a teen center surrounded by Alternateens, who gave us the nastiest look.
