n. The music that is played in a corporate retail chain in order to influence the buying habits of customers. Although Retail rock varies from store to store, one thing remains consistant: the music, like the products found in the store at which it is played, is fake mass-produced garbage that must be avoided at all costs.
(1) While browsing in CVS, Barbra noticed the song playing over the store's radio was 'I Don't Want to Wait' by Paula Cole. She immediately bought several packs of Q-tips.

(2) Ashley's boyfriend watied outside Abercrombie & Fitch while she shopped for the latest fall fashions; he could hear 'No Such Thing' by John Mayer blearing over the store's speakers, and he didn't like it.
