    Jangle Pop is not a genre. And for the guy who mentioned The Smiths, they are Alternative/Indie.

    For all those people laughing and questioning jangle pop, it's not quite how it sounds by the name. According to wikipedia, it is "an American post-punk movement of the mid-'80s that marked a return to the chiming guitars and pop melodies of the '60s."
