“Alternative” is a label Jurassic 5 welcomes as a group. “We like alternative because to me it just means that we have a license to do whatever we want,” Cut Chemist tells Chris Harris of the Hartford Advocate. “We’re alternative, and I like that. It means on the next record, we could sh** we could do a folk record if we wanted to, and the critics would be like, ‘This is so alternative — I love it.’ That’s fine with me.” He adds the group won’t pander to the lowest common denominator to increase record sales. “I don’t want to be a part of the mainstream if it means making records that sound like everything else in the mainstream,” he says. “I don’t listen to that sh** and I don’t like it, and I don’t like anything it stands for. If I’m going to drive around in a Hummer limo with champagne and girls and sh** it’s not my steeze.”
