Jangle pop

Jangle pop is a sub-genre of alternative rock from the mid-80s onwards that “marked a return to the chiming guitars and pop melodies of the 60s bands such as The Byrds, with their electric twelve-string guitars and straightforward song structures. It is often considered related to the broader power pop sub-genre. Edit this Artist photo: Pernice Brothers

    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."
