Merch website Merchoid recently conducted a survey asking, “Which band truly epitomizes dad rock today?” revealing which bands each state considers the pinnacle of dad rock. The top dad rock band for Mississippi? Nirvana.

The term dad rock describes a genre of rock music associated with the tastes of middle-aged men, typically encompassing classic rock bands and artists from the 1960s to the 1990s. This genre includes iconic acts like Led Zeppelin, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nickelback, Fleetwood Mac, and Nirvana, whose music still resonates, even if it’s tinged with nostalgia. While it playfully jabs at the music preferences of older generations, dad rock also highlights the enduring appeal and influence of these legends.

The list of overall winners were:

  • 1. Nickleback (26%)
  • = 2. Van Halen (12%)
  • = 2. Blink-182 (12%)
  • 3. Red Hot Chili Peppers (10%)

  • 5. Linkin Park (8%)
  • 6. Guns N’ Roses (8%)
  • 7. Coldplay (6%)
  • 8. Bon Jovi (6%)
  • 9. Limp Bizkit (2%)

The survey reported that 57% of respondents considered today’s music to be lacking compared to the classics, while 40% claimed both eras were of comparable quality. Only 3% found modern artists to be superior.
