"Annoying" rock music that meets the following criteria:
1: "Sensitive" lyrics often depicting self-pity accompanied by crunching guitars.
2: Band members who consider themselves "artists" for commercialized and formulaic material.
3: An obsession with power ballads.
Typical Doug Rock songs begin with a tender acoustic riff to establish a sense of melancholy before the "crashing electric guitar climax" expresses the emotional angst of the song's protagonist. Most songs follow a formula of the subject suffering form a personal or situational shortcoming with redemption dependant on the favor a love interest or the subject's renewed faith.
Guy 1: Did you hear that Nickleback song?
Guy 2: No, I avoid Doug Rock whenever possible.
