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.
