  Twee pop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Twee pop is a type of indie pop that is known for simple, sweet melodies and lyrics, often combined with jangling guitars.
Twee pop bands who use 'buzzsaw' rather than jangling guitars, such as Shonen Knife and the Beatnik Termites, tend also to be influenced by Buzzcocks and The Ramones.
In the 1980s 'twee' bands were simply described as 'indie' or 'shambling', the latter term coined by DJ John Peel, who originally applied it to a session by the group Bogshed.
