Get the dadcore mug.
1) a way of life, as "father".

2) An expression of the realization that square is a badge of honor, that success is possible with a positive attitude, that family is paramount, that honesty is everything. As Jesus Christ says, "let your yes be yes, and your no, no." Encompasses dad rock, tucked in shirts, eye contact, good posture, hard work, dirty jokes with "the boys", politics, creedance, Good relationship with parents, being a role model, "grown-up", pays more than his share of taxes, leans right of left, and unlimited BBQs.

A genre of modern indie rock that blends the traditional post-punk leanings of indie with the dad rock of the 70s.

Expect a singer-songwriter playing average electric guitar solos over the top of an incredibly bored backup band.

Examples: the War on Drugs, Wilco, Kurt Vile, etc.
