Abstract:

Music is a lot like literature that can be pleasing, enlightening, and changing the inner sense of life and is a compass helping us identify valuables categories in a wide area. Alternative rock that includes elements of punk, folk music, and heavy metal is a broad category of music that is usually thought of as somewhat out of the mainstream. In Sri Lanka, we can recognize a set of disciples that are interested in alternative music. Among them, university undergraduates are one of the most important sets of disciples because they have a different reading about Arts compared to others. So the current study aims to explore the influence of Alternative music on the lifestyle of university undergraduates. Five participants were selected by using a purposive sample technique from the University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka. Semi-structured interviews were conducted for data collection and analyses of the data were conducted through thematic analysis. The result suggests that alternative music causes a change in the different perspectives on the lifestyle of university undergraduates like increased drug usage; different ideas and attitudes about sexual behavior, married life and love; political views about current society; and cultural acceptance. The current research will help open new research areas for Sri Lankan researchers who are interested in this field. More research is needed to get a complete understanding of this topic in the Sri Lankan context.
