So we're watching this band, and I say to Eric, "am I missing something, or are half of his drums not actually there?" The drummer had a big accoustic kit, but a bunch of what he was playing was pre-recorded. (Which struck me as unusual, because when people fake it, they tend to fake it with electronic instruments, not real ones, least of all real ones that they actually brought with them.)

So Eric says, "That's the only thing preventing them from being an alternative rock band!"

And I say, "oh, so it's the faking it that makes it be Industrial?"
