commonly mistaken for being a shortened version of 'popular music', pop music is a term that applies to songs which use a pretty formulaic verse chorus bridge, verse chorus as the standard.. a rock n' roll song that hits it bigtime is still a rock song.. popular country tunes are still country tunes.. hip hop be hip hop. due to mass-corruption on many levels of humanity, pop's name has been spoiled--forever linked to (but not limited to) the latest top40 geared studio manufactured product pusher of the month.
fella #1: "did you watch conan last night?"
duder #2: "nah, too busy watchin'the music video station."
fella #1: "those music video's are nothing more than 3 1/2 minute commercials, played over and over until we know the words, associate that with liking it and buy the album."
duder #2: *singing latest madonna song in his head* "huh? whah? sorry, i wasn't listening."
fella #1: "record companys decide and let the music channels and radio stations know what the next hit single shall be. they can afford to do that sorta thing."
duder #2: "but kelly clarkson totally rocks!"
fella #1: "wrong. she will be gone shortly and forever erased from our memories."
duder #2: "who was on conan?"
fella #1: "broken social scene.. amazing band, proving that the pop music has room for growth, depth, and talent."
duder #2: "you gonna eat that?"
fella #1: "ugh.. take it." *hands over his sandwich*

A publicly accepted form of techno, (meaning that the music is composed using ELECTRONIC SEQUENCING SOFTWARE). The only thing that makes people think it's not techno is because pop music uses vocals as the main part of the song. Unfortunately, pop music sucks shit because whatever the "singers" are saying has already been said 5 million times before by previously manufactured talentless scumbags.
There has never been a more vile abomination to the music industry than the scourge of pop music, all of which is supported by the Record industry Asswipes of America, or RIAA.

a tamed crappy genre which is destroying music (bring back punk). Not only is the music manufactured but the pop star's life is manufactured, they marry someone, divorce them so they can write a bloody book about it! once a pop act has released one bloody album they get someone to write a biography (aka kiss there ass) about them and put the word unofficial on it so it'll look more cool, cool my arse. Absorbed by the fucking public who dont know shit about actual music (rock music where the band writes there own songs). Basically the apocolypse of music until another sex pistols turns up and fixes it.
stupid teenage girl: i love justin bieber hes so HAWT
me: fuck off, pop music is for arsehole's

A style of music which is judged by those who like it more on the appearance of those singing it than the music.
Britney Spears is hot. She MUst be extremely talented.

The worst form of "music" in the whole music world. Usually involves no talent. Singing voices are usually digitally improved. Has some stupid electronic beat in the background.
Britney Spears has no talent, making her a pop music artist.
