I think that rather than a genre we should apply a specific theme song to the Woot-Off. I liken to the 1812 Overture. Lively, chaotic and exciting.

I see it as an odd amalgam of various Broadway styles/productions.
A dramatic, exuberant, joyful, heart-wrenching, spectacle where the mundane mingles with the bizarre and the bold and bland walk hand in hand while delicately balancing the tasteful and the tasteless in a narrative that can only be described as Les Miserables meets Spiderman, Turn Off the Dark meets Oklahoma! meets Rent meets A Chorus Line meets The Producers meets (insert any random Broadway title here).
I'm tired of having to type this crap out just so a couple more people may understand my point of view. Woot! is Woot! (damnit, I never noticed this before but its name already sounds like some Broadway debacle). Some of the music lifts our souls while other 'pieces' make us feel like someone is cleaning our ears with crooked rusty jagged drill bits turning slowly against our eardrums because the cordless drill that's being used is underpowered (yes, I'm looking at you Woot.... and you, Harbor Freight). Some of the dance numbers can only be described as frenetic, uncoordinated undulations upon the stage that is the realm of internet commerce, but for every such convulsion there is a celebration of life and movement to match.
Blah, blah, blah....
I've successfully wasted twenty minutes of my workday here in the office thanks to you, Woot!
No, seriously, thank you Woot!
Since Wootoffs are presented in a much more rapidfire style, I'll just throw it out there that they could be in the style of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog simply because I think that Joss Whedon's snide, sarcastic, playful, yet ultimately filled with loss, sense of humor would fit in well with your writing staff.
you almost go it....just a little to the left....now up....keep going....keep going......there ya go.....ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Bad country - instead of "I lost my wife, lost my horse, lost my bottle..." It's "I lost my credit card code just while buying the Bundle of Crops!"
