Ok so we now from music history that genres tend to come and go, every genre that was the biggest one in the world will eventually disappear to a degree, we all want to see the resurgence of Rock/Metal but when do you think that Pop will met the same fate as the rest?

I think it's probably sooner than we think

it never will, that's the point.

Pop has no defining charecteristics other than being the most popular kind of music

Considering pop has been around since the 50s, and counts The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Michael Jackson and their ilk as part of the genre, as well as the ability for pop to assimilate and utilise stylistic variations from pretty much every other genre in existence... I'm going to say it isn't.

Hell, pop and rock and roll are closer to each other than most 15 year old guitarists think.

Never. Pop changes all the time based on what is popular.

And yeah. I definitely don't want to see a resurgence of metal.

But what's worse, the pain or the hangover?

Pop is always changing, the current top 40 will be replaced with another style you hate

i would really prefer that rock/metal not resurge. the best pop, imo, was the largely electronic new wave in the 80s. we should do something like that again.

They're actually the same since pop is "popular music" and rock is "popular music."

Even when Rock/Metal was at it's peak in terms of popularity, the unpopular stuff was by far the best examples of them.

Well 'popular' music will only go away when everybody stops listening to music altogether.


As for what you probably mean by 'pop' music, it will be gone and replaced with something else that's labeled 'pop' sooner or later, the same way it has done since always.

As for the 'resurgence' of metal? I assume you mean 80's Metallica levels of popularity? Not going to happen.
Rock and metal isn't even as unpopular as people think it is. People are just too lazy to look for bands outside of the same old 'Metallica, Guns n' Roses, Iron Maiden' that everybody already know exists.

I have to agree with this. When I try to think of Pop as a genre, there's still mixes of other genres that blend into what it is as a whole.

For instance, when I think of pop right now, I think of a mix of dance/electronic/hip hop/rock-choruses/etc.

And in a decade or so I'm sure it'll be a different mix. It is a genre in my eyes, but it changes as to what's popular.

i want my bubbly j-pop and metrosexual male-fronted j-poprock to live on forever.



But on topic, pop is going to be relative. It "started" with the ability for people to collect and share recorded music/the vaudeville jazz age and has continued to this day. Essentially pop music anything that isn't classical, traditional folk, or ultra-experimental music.

Everyone in this thread should watch the film American Pop as it is my favorite and it traces the course of American Pop music from ~1915 to 1980 (when the movie was made).

Ended in the 90's everything they call pop now is actually called poop now.
Whats goes around must come down

Im just going to say that pop is short for popular, however popular music is coming to an end slowly.
Statistics show that there are more people listening to a greater array of artists whereas before it was the opposite. There will always be some music more popular than other music but the gap is gradually closing.

listen to the number 1 hits in the last 2 years and notice the variety of subgenres and genres. it's quite silly to think that metal will become pop.

Pop isn't a genre? Then how has it remained exactly the same since the sixties?
