The band for today are Pop-Rock, but don't let that scare you. The lyrics will make it worth it, it's not completely generic, and it's catchy in a good way.
Give Zombie Me a listen.
And here you can see a perfect example. Yes it's pop, yes the level of talent doesn't have to be too high to accomplish the song, but it's fresh. It's also happy, which is pretty odd considering what the track's about.
This is also the first track on the album. It's a good opening track, too. It shows the Pop side as well as the pop culture references like with the Ghostbusters or All in the Family (I hope I'm not the only one who caught it..)
The rest of the album can get a bit rocky sometimes, but if you need more of the style after today's song, you should look into the self titled debut.

Some tracks step out of their overall style and really push what they can be. If they made more songs sound like Old Man Walking I'd be pretty impressed with them. However, as far as this album goes, the album is half full of cheesy, cliche, or just plain generic tracks.
Luckily it has a pretty fair running time, and some of the references will keep people around just out of curiosity. After a few listens it might get stale, but some people will truly appreciate the lyrics.
