A catch-all term for all the ball-less, sterile, wuss-rock (coldplay, snow patrol, james blunt, keane - ad nauseum).

Bands that verge on autism, having a degree of "talent" (ability to play), yet an inability to convey emotion, other than a vague stab at it (emotion)...
A prime example being "yellow" by coldplay!!! What does this mean, a near dissatisfaction??? Or perhaps an even better example "have a nice day" by stereophonics - a "nice" day? not a great day? just a nice one. "Eunuch-rock" - the kind of glib, nonsense you'll see selling cars, mobile phones or insurance on tv.

6 Words Related to Eunuch-rock

A new name for the soft rock, easy-listening sounds of 70's and 80's music that is characterized by it's earnest, treacly male lead singers who apparently have removed their genitalia in order to tap into their feminine sides and, ironically, appeal more to their female paramours.
To qualify as being "Eunuch Rock", the band must have a male lead singer and can sometimes, but not always, feature an acoustic guitar, twinkling piano or saxophone solo.

Definitive examples of Eunuch Rock are: Stephen Bishop (of Tootsie fame), Ambrosia, Air Supply, Player, Christopher Cross or anyone who sings in a falsetto.
