On June 25, 2004 The Wall Street Journal announced "There's a new wave of garage bands featuring Mom on guitar, Mom on drums and, on lead vocals....Mom." These suburban hausfraus kick out the jams to tunes like “Take Out the Trash”. The moms play so loud, they can’t hear their kids dialing the runaway hotline.
This genre of music is commonly referred to as "Mom Rock". Examples include The Mydols, Housewives on Prozac and Hormone Replacement Therapy.
