College rock was a term used in the United States to describe 1980s alternative rock before the term "alternative" came into common usage. So named because it was primarily played on campus radio stations, these bands combined the experimentation of post-punk and New Wave with a more melodic pop style and an underground sensibility.

    The people calling this "horrible" must be devoted fans of MeTaL and Hard Rawk. Or they are youngsters who don't even understand what this is (none of the naysayers here are old enough to remember the 80s).
