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.
"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."
If you want to listen to some REAL good modern rock with great lyrics and musicians, listen to Karnivool and Alter Bridge.
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
