Haha! I didn't see that. I guess they had to put a sub-genre of rock. Maybe they think ska isn't neccesarily rock so they said alternative instead just to have it in?
That's a terrible explanation. It's what i thought of when I first began to think about it..
They probably didnt want to make the Ska genre in the game with that being the only track in the category.
It's not that you're awesome, it's usually that I'm pretty horrible.
It's nice to have Harmonix officially label me as Obsessive-Compulsive rather than just hearing it from my friends.
It's especially odd considering their one of the biggest bands from Boston.
Oh well, maybe with the addition of No Doubt and perhaps some other Ska bands in DLC they might patch it and make a quick change.
