A popular term referring to a sub-genre of hard rock strongly influenced by post-grunge and nu metal. Originating in the mid-late 90s, butt rock is comprised of raspy vocals, similar to Pearl Jam, Creed, or Nirvana, backed with radio-friendly guitar riffs, drum beats, and basic bass lines.
Generally found on CBS owned radio stations across the Midwest, Great Plains, and Southwest, butt rock is overly commercialized, processed music that lacks innovation and creativity. Butt rock predominantly targets a demographic of blue collar workers, generally men 18-45, that drink cheap light beer, have a fascination with big trucks, avidly watch Monday Night Football, and are wannabe UFC fighters.
Women that listen to butt rock are usually huge fans of Guns N Roses, and are drawn to the sub-genre by the subconscious influence of corporate agenda, or out of sympathy for their significant other’s terrible local band.
Butt rock groups include Nickelback, Seether, Theory of a Deadman, 3 Doors Down, Breaking Benjamin, Staind, Puddle of Mudd, Three Days Grace, Five Finger Death Punch, amongst others.

A style of hard rock from 1986 to 1992 with nothing original to add to the genre of hard rock. Their songs consist of the same over-used series of power chords and corny lyrics and may often contain the use of keyboards or (Lord help us) a keytar
, but are just following what hard rock and metal bands have done from 1970's-1985.
Butt Rockers have been plastered all over MTV through the late 80's and early 90's because of a pretty boy
image seen by recording executives as a pre-teen goldmine.
Butt Rock Pioneers include Bon Jovi, Poison, Warrant, Skid Row and Winger, Lita Ford, Europe and Telsa.
Performers are usually depicted as having long, "big" hair that is either bleached blond, dyed black or permed to death. Tight, ripped jeans or spandex, bright colored ripped and/or shredded shirts and excessive use of animal print bandanas.
Butt Rock bands rarely put out more than 2 albums. Their first album was only popular because the sounded like one of their predecessors, then trying to experiment with their own style was grossly insufficient to have any lasting effect on the market.
Motley Crue is still touring after nearly 30 years.
Warrant (or any member of) hasn't been heard from since 1991, despite attempts.
Butt rock has no originality.
A derogatory term for any hard rock music. The term comes from a nationwide advertising campaign on hard rock radio stations in the 1990s that used the tagline "Rock. Nothing but Rock." Listeners quickly changed that to "Nothing Butt Rock". Though it refers to anything played on hard rock stations, it commonly is used to refer to 'hair-bands' or used by people to distinguish the 'bad' butt rock from the hard rock that they like.
He sat around stoned all day listening to butt rock on the 'Wild Hare'.
are synonomous with butt-rock. Hair bands were a phenonmenon exclusive to the 80's and 90's. If the guy used at least one can of hairspray per day, and wore eyeliner, it was a pretty good bet he was a butt-rocker. The SURE thing is whether or not he had a perm, and hair that stuck out/up higher than 3 inches.
These people that consider Creed and Nickleback butt-rock were obviously born in the late 80's or early 90's. Butt-rock is NOT alternative music, it is NOT heavy metal, and it is NOT from the late 90's. Try Poison, Warrant, Slaughter, Winger, White Snake, Guns 'n' Roses...
