Let me correct this by saying specifically a genre… I want a genre that you would place this song in, category was a bad word.

Alt-Country maybe? Didn’t hear the whole thing, but that seemed to be what it sounded like…

Adult contemporary?

First of all, I would like to say after listening to this song that it is a GREAT song. Secondly, I would probably classify it as rock seein as one of the lyrics states “I still believe in this rock n roll”.

Country or country rock.

It is definitely in the genre of Rock, but rock has a broad spectrum. I’d put it in the category of southern or country rock.

marinelife's avatar

@eambos Yes, Southern rock works for me.

Nickleback is usually considered alternative rock, but this is “softer” than some of their songs. As an individual song, I’d go with southern rock more than country rock.

I third Southern Rock

@eambos Where the heck IS Chip?

Yeah, it’s Southern Rock Lite. I mean, I couldn’t see Lynyrd Skynyrd singing this.

Pop Evil is a rock band, listen to Pop Evil- Hero: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDOdu-hETms I would say in the rock genre. They played at the Rock on the Range (which is a rock concert in Columbus, OH), great band live!
