The nasty emo step-child of nu metal. It is the bands trying to bridge the gap between Mudvayne and Madonna. They think they can be emotive and whiny while still being rock. They are wrong.
Moron: I hate nu metal. Nickleback is for losers.

Me: Nickleback is whinge rock. You're a moron.

Whinge Rock consists of all the bands your dad probably likes. Prime examples of whinge rock are mediocre bands such as Nickelback, Puddle of Mudd, 3 Doors Down, and Three Days Grace. Whinge rock is characterized by power chords, a singer who tries to sound tough, and being repetitive. Linkin Park, albeit whiny, is not whinge rock because the fanbase is too young, and it has more nu-metal traits than those of rock.
Nickelback, Puddle of Mudd, and 3 Doors Down just toured together. It was the ultimate tour of mediocrity and whinge rock.

A form of music in which the singer moans on about their life in a whiney voice to a lame, watered down rock backing while pretending to be metal.

Often mistakenly called Nu Metal by people who don't realise that was once a legitimate musical movement before it was hijacked.

Prime exponents of the Whinge Rock scene are Nickelback, Puddle of Mudd, Linkin Park and Evanescence.
