Power pop is a popular musical genre
that draws its inspiration from 1960s British
and American rock music. It typically incorporates a
combination of musical devices such as strong melodies,
clear vocals and crisp vocal harmonies, economical
arrangements and prominent guitar riffs.
Although it has a sizable cult following, the genre of power pop
does not get the attention and respect it deserves.
This site was created to honor artists who produce
great power pop music, even if they may be categorized in
another form of popular music (i.e. rock, pop, new wave, alternative, etc.)
Firstly, the artist has to be known for playing power pop music.
Secondly, the artist has to have made more than one single album, this
eliminates a bunch of “one-hit-wonders” from the list. And lastly,
we require that the artist has released their first record at least 15 years ago.
