  1. If Rock and Alternative are classified separately, then what falls into Alternative? How can anything considered Rock be sold the most when there is hardly any rock really being pushed out there?
    I can only assume that Rock means anything classic and alternative is “new”.

  2. Just a FYI I think it’s suppose to read that “…U.S. album purchasers in 2013.” not “…U.S. album purchasers in 2031.”

    I’m sure the future upcoming genre of neo-triple step will be the top genre in 2031.
