On June 25, 2004 The Wall Street Journal announced "There's a new wave of garage bands featuring Mom on guitar, Mom on drums
and, on lead vocals....Mom." These suburban
hausfraus kick out the jams to tunes like
“Take Out the Trash”. The moms play so loud, they can’t hear their kids dialing
the runaway hotline.
This genre of music is commonly referred to as "Mom Rock". Examples
include The Mydols, Housewives on Prozac and Hormone Replacement Therapy.
