"metal" you hear on the radio. characterized specifically by the "wanna-be tough guy" fan base.
hinder, nickel back, evanescence, seether.. all douche rock bands.
A genre of music most popular with late high school-college age students, boys and girls alike. Excellent for road trips, experimentation with sex and/or marijuana, and "chill" afternoons. Douche rock is not quite underground and not quite MTV-mainstream, allowing listeners to feel as if they listen to groups that the masses are not yet aware of.
Douche rock acts usually blur the lines between rock, reggae, folk, and jam-band without ever becoming legitimate in any genre. They can most easily be found at summer music festivals and outdoor venues such as Alpine Valley in East Troy, Wisconsin. The music is often characterized by an acoustic guitar toting frontman backed by a band that is almost certainly more talented than he is.
Most fans of douche rock will attempt at some point to cross over into legitimate reggae, folk, or jam-band fanbases, concerts or festivals. This can have mixed results. Many quickly rush back to the security of the Jeep Liberty their parents bought them and their collection of 'Dave' bootlegs.
Dave Matthews Band, Jack Johnson, Mason Jennings, G-Love and Special Sauce, John Mayer, John Butler Trio, Michael Franti, 311.
"Dude, wanna go catch Jack Johnson's 3 night stand at Deer Creek?"
"Nah, one night of douche rock is about all I can stand."
An hypocrite and empty rock/emo/metal(core) with banal lyrics and musicianship.
If you want to listen to some REAL good modern rock with great lyrics and musicians, listen to Karnivool and Alter Bridge.
Examples of douche rock are: Nickelback, Seether, Fall Out Boy, Three Days Grace, Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet for my Faggotine and similar crap.
The crappiest rock music I've ever hard. Being a douche rocker means you have to sound like a prepubescent boy when you're singing, hit random, incoherent chords in songs, and have no timing, rhythm, or skill when you're drumming. You also have to cream you're manpanties whenever one of your crappy hits is played on "Z100", MTV's "TRL", and the like.
Douche rock bands include the likes of All American Rejects, the late Green Day, Nickleback, Alter Bridge, AFI, and jesus christ Fall Out Boy. I HATE FALL OUT BOY!!!
Doucherock is taking over the free world while badass modern bands like Velvet Revoler and Avenged Sevenfold are consistently pushed to the side in favor of these fucking Gap clothed, Starbucks drinking, Z100 listening, straight edge clown shoes.
Fuck Douche Rock
Fall Out Boy, Hawthorne Heights, All American Rejects, Alter Bridge, Nickleback, Jimmy Eat World and AFI are all festering examples of the douchiest douche rock in the universe. I'd list more, but I'm afraid I'll grow a vagina if I did.
