Question What do you call this type of music?

These are some of my favorite songs:

"Don't look back in anger" - Oasis
"Somewhere only we know" - Keane
"The Reason" - Hoobastank
"One Headlight" - Wallflowers
"Don't Panic" - Coldplay

Could you classify it a style of music? It's somewhat melancholy, and certainly the lyrics are, but they're not sad songs. It's kinda like rock/alternative but not really. Ballads?

I would say soft-rock, but that sounds so ... soft :retard:

Don't try to put true music in boxes, it can't be done!
Only marketing products fit in those.

Yeah you're right, but I do know the names of two kinds of music I like: classical and electronica (techno etc..) and the third one is THAT. So I thought I might be able to put a label on it.

So for now, I'll just say, "songs with words I like".

I like three of those songs. I haven't heard the other two but think I might like them.

Yup, I will call it soft rock too.

You can call it "Brit-rock" or "Brit-pop" cos most the bands that write this style of music are Britain or Ireland.

You are the one... you're my number one...

All the songs fit into the "Indie" category, although Hoobastank are usually a rock band and "The Reason" was just their to give them exposure to a wider audience.

I suppose they're Power Ballads!

I would say Alternative Pop/Rock cuz none of those bands are really true rock bands. Good choices though. I love the Oasis song.

Indie, Dirty Sanchez? Indie bands are like, Sonic Youth, or The Flaming Lips.
