Oasis is “power pop” in the US

No wonder European bands have a hard time breakin in the US. I am currently trying to plant some Willowtree songs on music sites over there, and I have understood that we fall under the category “power pop” together with 90% of all the other European bands.

“Power pop” :D

When I hear that word I think of pink bubble gum.

Oasis = Pink bubble gum
Creed = Big juicy double whopper

Other interesting categories listed are:

Modern Rock (Creed, Fuel, Stone Temple Pilots)
Pop (backstreet boys, Christina Aguilera, Destiny's Child, Elton John)
Indie Rock (Pavement, Modest Mouse, Built to Spill)
Alternative Rock (Radiohead, Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam)
Alternative Metal (Incubus, korn, Staind)

My conclusion:

If you wanna be a proper American, always listen to Creed and always be way too hungry to settle for chick food.

Describing the mighty Oasis as power pop is not right!!!
