Ok seriously after reading some the comments here on the pop section I can honestly say that you pop haters should really stop putting these mean comments. I mean how would you like it if I said your metal or rock music you listen to isn't music just because I didn't like it? Exactly not good right? So basically stop saying that pop is not music just because you don't like it. Like I don't like rock or metal but I don't go around saying that these two genres are not music because they are just like how pop IS music! I'm 19 years old and I love pop songs and will always love them! They are catchy and upbeat and my favourite kind of songs! Like my mom loves gentle and soft songs and I tried to like them but it didn't work like I couldn't stand it at all and kept waiting for the soft song to end. I gave rock a chance too and the same thing happened. Like in order for me to like a song and download it it has to be pop songs! Sometimes with the things I find about pop music on the internet ...more - LuLup
Sorry, but Metal Rules! Kids like you shall be sacrificed to Satan. - GreenDayFan21
Pop isn't a real genre. Rap can be "pop", country can even be "pop" but if it was an actual genre aside from those other genre then it is in the correct place laugh out loud
The people have voted and guess what? This genre is number 15. It just comes to prove that most people aren't into what radio stations offers them. It's mainly teenagers who listen to this stuff because they are in a phase where they are trying to look cool, rebellious and grown-ups. Pop music songwriters take advantage of that weakness and offer songs about drugs, sex, rebellion... which is exactly what teenagers are looking for. I wish a revolutionary man would appear and show through his music/lyrics to the youngsters that maturity is achieved through wisdom and not drugs.
POP IN FACT IS A GENRE. NOT ALL POP MUSIC IS GOOD, BUT SOME OF IT CAN REALLY BE VERY MEANINGFUL AND CATCHY. POP MUSIC PLAYED ON THE RADIO MOST OF THE TIME DOES NOT HAVE THE BEST MEANING, BUT THERE ARE ALSO HIDDEN POP MUSIC THAT IS NOT ON THE RADIO THAT IS PRETTY DECENT. STOP HATING ON POP MUSIC. STOP HATING ON EVERY GENRE OF MUSIC. PEOPLE HAVE THEIR OWN PREFERENCES AND BY SAYING THAT WHAT SOMEBODY ELSE LISTENS TO IS "NOT MUSIC" IS HURTFUL. ITS LIKE SAYING THAT YOU CAN ONLY LISTEN TO POP MUSIC OR ELSE YOUR NOT WELCOME IN THIS WORLD. I ACTUALLY HATE POP MUSIC BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN I SHOULD HATE ON IT BECAUSE I LOVE METAL AND I HAVE TO DEFEND METAL. EVERY GENRE DESERVES ITS CHANCE.
Pop ain't music, most of it is just extremely gay distorted sex noises in a stupid rhythm that took like five minutes tops to come up with. If this is "music" than it is a disgrace. I mean really, how hard is it to stand up on a stage and make stupid moaning sounds? Not hard, unless your easily embarrassed! Screamo takes practice, singing pop doesn't. Biggest truth you'll ever hear. Oh by the way, pop is just as sinful as heavy metal to those of you Christians out there!
Haha pop music in the world right now is so superficial its fun to listen to to turn in your car while in traffic but it's devoid of any meaning, it has no substance at all, I mean I'm not saying this cause I'm a hard core rocker I'm saying this because as a normal sane person. I mean if the number one song is about your butt then that's a problem.
I like pop music. Don't know what the hate on here is all about but I have my singers. Adele is my favorite pop singer as of now and we also have singers like Michael Jackson, Pink, Lady Gaga, Tori Kelly, Demi Lovato, and more. This genre gets too much hate. There can be good pop music now, everyone here is just so pessimistic and wishes they lived in the 90s. - DCfnaf
I didn't want to vote, but I had to say that pop should not be called 'music'. Pop bands have no talent. The only talent in those bands are the people that are hired to work the computers. Pop bands always use computers to edit their music and voices. If you want a band that has never before used computers to modify ANYTHING of their music or voices, try Nightwish. For all you people who like female-fronted metal bands with real talent, Nightwish is the way to go.
Why do people keep saying Justin B is bad? Oh wait never mind, he is! Haha
The old pop is great. Michael Jackson is the greatest pop musician ever, ever. But the new pop, Justin Bieber? - 05yusuf09
Hey news flash, here's an awesome concept: Pop does NOT immediately equal sellout/bad. Get that OUT OF YOUR HEAD. - WonkeyDude98
Old pop really had it all. Meaning, good lyrics, catchy instrumentals. It wasn't all dirty love songs, just listen to Journey, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, Whitney Houston, and ABBA. - naFrovivuS
To all you saying "Pop is not a genre" it is now, used to describe mainstream music with similar themes- easy on the ears melody, clean singing, and other things. And metal is a material, so why can't pop be a genre? - SoldierOfFortune
Pop is good. You rock fans should leave pop fans alone. There's some good pop songs. You're just looking for somebody to pick on. There's some pop fans that could be sensitive and you overly crazy rock fans could hurt them. There's some meaningful pop songs. But NO what does the rock fans wanna do? JUST BEING MEAN TO PEOPLE WHO LIKE POP. You can't control the music that people like. Us Pop fans don't brag to listen to this and that, unlike you guys. You could hurt someone's feelings because of being so damn stuck up. There's some decent rock fans like IronSabbathPreist but YOU VISITORS ARE SO FREAKING STUPID. LEAVE POP FANS ALONE. I'm starting to get mad. - JaysTop10List
Pop music is way overhated. Pop music is as diverse as rock music and heavy metal, with many different subgenres. Like most great music in general, the best pop music will not be found on the radio.
Honestly, the people who hate this contradicts themselves. They say Pop isn't a genre of music, but then they treat it like a genre by calling all of it garbage. - DCfnaf
I hate the pop of today, but I like older pop artists like Michael Jackson and Prince. Even The Beatles are considered to be a pop band, and The Beatles are my favorite band of all time
The only good pop singers are Michael Jackson and Prince. Everyone nowadays just uses autotune and have the stupidest lyrics I've ever heard.
Yeah, Michael Jackson, Adele, Prince, and Bruno Mars is all I can handle form this genre
Well, taylor swift is ruining pop so I don't listen to today's pop anymore.
You mean 80s pop like Michael Jackson, right? Because pop music sucks now.
Michael Jackson would be ashamed to see what became of this genre
Some were good back in the day, but now its just horrible, we need another Michael Jackson or Prince to fix this mess
If a Pop artist were to hear a Hard Rock or good genre like that, they'd be shocked that you can write a song with more than one word repeating.
Pop killed music! It is absolutely awful! The only reason people listen to the genre is because they've been brainwashed by these huge corporations and trends and they think the 'musicians' are 'good-looking'.
