(noun;adjective) One-hundred eighty pounds - the accepted weight at which a chubby girl is truly classified as a fat chick, no ifs, ands or buts (but definitely too much "butt"). As porker lard seems to increase exponentially in effect, a "double industry-standard" is about 220 lbs. and a "triple" starts around 260.
As the industry-standard bullied her way past Glenn, he smiled and once again thanked Heaven that his wife was nowhere near industry-standard weight.

The Music Industry Standard Response is the general reply you will get from emailing or calling someone in the music industry. IE: NO FRIGGIN REPLY WHATSOEVER... NONE, RADIO SILENCE, A VOID OF COMMUNICATION, Absolutely bugger all response.

MISR is used by almost any part of the music industry as the first port of call when faced with a long question, a question they don't like, or respect enough with an answer.
"Hi Sir, I would like to book the Bum Luvin' Criminals for my wedding, do you think they would like $10k ?"

*Silence* - Music Industry Standard Response (ie no reply)

...And a day later we watch a bit of bush roll by, and a squeaky sign squeak in the wind.
