The term anthemic is not strictly a word, yet is used to describe music that has a particular presence to it/atmospheric feel.

In hardcore/punk an anthemic band would be one who have plentiful singalongs and a tight, melodic, and often heavy rhythm section. Bands such as Bane and With Honor are a good example of this.

Statement: "Woah this band are amazing, every song is really anthemic"

Reply: "Yeah, they're incredible."
