A colloquially and loosely defined sub-genre of mainstream alternative/indie rock that is popular among people who range in age from 28 to 49 that are apart of gentrification movements in communities that disparage and displace working class citizens. Bands that encompass the gent rock sub-genre are the the following, but not limited to: Dave Matthews Band, Iron and Wine, Band of Horses, Arcade Fire, the Bad Suns, and bands/musicians who cover Wagon Wheel at a local dive bar during open mic night
Person 1: "Hey dude, do you want to go downtown tonight to see that jam band everybody in town is talking about?"
Person 2: "Nah. I'm good. I think I will just stay here at my neighborhood dive bar tonight and drink Hamm's. I'm not a big fan of gent rock anyway and I don't feel like hanging around a bunch of yuppies who think they know everything there is to know about craft beer while bragging about how much money their parents give them."
Person 1: "Yeah dude, good call. Those people gent-terrify the crap outta me anyway."

-or-

Person: "Those gents and their gent rock. I am not a big fan of Dave Matthews Band, but the gents sure are! I am more of a metal kind of guy. These gents are pricing me out of town, which is too bad, because I like it here in Boulder. I think I might move back up to Billings where I can afford to live and be around people like me who are not so yuppie. People in Billings don't judge me for drinking Hamm's and listening to metal."
