If an alternative band has a #1 hit are they still alternative?
I mean are they or are they then main stream.

mainstream and alternative are not opposites, indie is the opposite of mainstream, it would still be considered alternative but possibly also pop

I think the term alternative has to do with classification of the type of music not about being a sellout, so I think they still would be.
