The term anthemic is not strictly a word, yet is used to describe music that has a particular presence to it/atmospheric feel.

In hardcore/punk an anthemic band would be one who have plentiful singalongs and a tight, melodic, and often heavy rhythm section. Bands such as Bane and With Honor are a good example of this.

Statement: "Woah this band are amazing, every song is really anthemic"

An occurrence, action, event, or happening that surpasses "epic" proportions. In order for something to truly be anthemic it must be worthy of songs of praise and glory written in its honor.
Wow, that final over time goal was anthemic!

I can't believe nobody has properly explained this.... anyway, "anthem", when used stylistically, means theme. For instance, if a venue, such as a dance club, has a contiguous design feel, it can be said that it sticks to an anthem.
Of course it can also mean a song that is used to convey underlying values, principles, spirit, commraderie, etc., eg. a national anthem.

1. The most brilliant japanese band ever (Loudness fans, you don't know what you're missing =3)
3. A official song you sing with pride that's mostly patriotic-
National anthems are used in a wide array of contexts.
