A type of 'music' (I use that term loosely) that is constantly overplayed on your average shitty mid-west "alternative rock" radio station. All bands and songs sound exactly the same and there is nothing innovative or original about any of it as musical talent is kept to an absolute minimum. For whatever reason your average white-trash/trailer-park type loves this 'music'. The worst offender of these bands is Nickelback as they continue to shit on our ears with their 'music'. Simply by tuning into one of these dreadful radio stations you will hear 1 of these bands within minutes, but will not be able to tell them apart as they all sound exactly alike. Only your average white trash scumbag will be able to identify songs & bands as this information is meaningless. He can easily be identified at the nearest Hot Topic by his wallet chain, black Doc Marten's perhaps with flames on them, pony tail, tribal tattoo, overload of facial piercings, and half assed wannabe goatee on his chin. If none of this is visible the one dead giveaway to find him will be his silk button up short sleeve shirt with either dragons or flames on it, perhaps even both, and his extremely wide legged all black jnco pants.
Other "Radio Rock" bands include but are not limited to: Seether, Theory of a Deadman, 3 Days Grace, Shinedown, Hinder, Trapt, Breaking Benjamin, Disturbed, Daughtry, Chevelle, Staind, Papa Roach, Saliva, Stone Sour, Saving Abel, Alter Bridge, Creed, etc.

Bands like Nickelback, Staind, Seether, Shinedown, Papa Roach, Avenged Sevenfold, all the overplayed rock music on the radio and MTV. IT ALL SOUNDS EXACTLY THE SAME!!! There is nothing unique about them; the music, the lyrics, every song and every band sound alike. And for some unknown reason, people actually like it. bitches...
radio rock sucks. it's extremely rare when a mainstream band is actually good.

Radio Rock is not a concrete term. It can refer to over-produced, generic bands, but also to innovative, popular/alternative acts that get frequent radio-play on a variety of FM stations.
Elton John, Coldplay, Myslovitz are examples of radio rock by this definition.
