The website was originally created in 1999 by editor-in-chief Ryan Jones.

The site concentrates on new music, but its journalists also review reissued albums and box sets. It had also begun garnering a following for its extensive coverage of underground music. In the past year Alternative Addiction has released unsigned bands compilations, started its first online store, a digital downloads section and has a message board and mailing list with over ten thousand subscribers.[1]

Alternative Addiction works with Columbia Records, 604 Records, Rock Ridge Music, Lava Records, and Geffen Records among others.[1][2] It currently features the latest news, interviews, record reviews, as well competitions.[3][4]

The site has published "best-of" lists as annual features detailing the best albums and tracks of each year since 2002. The site has also a rock chart which is based on readers' vote. Charts are announced on Tuesday and feature twenty tracks and ten albums.
