Jangle pop

Jangle pop was an American musical genre that arose in the middle of the 1980s, combining angular, chiming guitars and power pop structures. The first and most famous jangle pop band was R.E.M, who eventually became one of the biggest bands in the world.

Jangle pop was primarily a southern and midwestern US phenomenon, though a group of bands called the Paisley Underground led a more psychedelic movement on the West Coast.
