Urban Dictionary : Mom Rock

A genre of rock music that appeals to thirty- and forty-something caucasian women, many of whom have children.  Examples include Bon Jovi, Nickelback, and Los Lonely Boys.

Historical tidbit: The very first tape I  bought was Bon Jovi Slippery When Wet, from a mall in Winnipeg.

 I think it was summer of 1987.  I was 9.

 What was your first record, 8-track, tape, cd, mp3?

Do you have any famous musicians from your hometown?  For me, Diana Krall comes close,as she hails from the neighbouring city, Nanaimo BC
