I was wondering if there is a specific term for rhythmic rock music like Stupid Girl or The Sex is good by Saving Abel.

The rhythm is not really complex, but very appealing (for me). Yet I have trouble to find similar songs from other artists mainly, because it is hard for me to describe it. It has what I would describe as "groove", though I doubt that is the correct expression.

Any suggestions welcome, it does not need to be accurate as in terms of music theory (that is why I did not ask on Music: Practice & Theory). I would equally appreciate hints to other bands/artists with this style of music.

Saving Abel are usually described as a riff-heavy post-grunge band with Southern rock influences. For a good description of these and related genres, as well as a list of similar Artists, check out AllMusic or any online music recommendation system.
