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.
The maternal equivalent of dad rock. These are the female singer-songwriters your father never grew fond of as well as the heart-throbs of your mother's youth. Includes any album made before you were born that requires a vagina to fully appreciate.
You: I looked through mum's old vinyl collection for some rare Beatles LPs, but all I found were these late-80s Bob Dylan records!
