A music genre performed mostly or totally on electronic instruments: synthesizers, samplers and drum machines.

Often confused with New Wave, but it's not the same. New Wave is guitar-based genre, and synth-pop evolved from new wave by replacing guitar-based arrangements with synths.

It was extremely popular genre in 80s, but in 2000s had sort of comeback, and loyal fan base
Depeche Mode, Human League, OMD, A-HA, Erasure, Pet Shop Boys, New Order are great synth-pop bands

The ultimate use of synthesizers in rock (closest genre it is related to but its place can be disputed) music.
Uses electric sounds, and usually only consist of only synthesizers using the drum parts on them for beats.
Some synth pop bands can be considered glam rock, or electronica however it can reach into almost any genre depending on the band.
Circuit Pop and Asterix are super at that synth pop type thing.

A very addictive music genre that has a lot of dopamine inducing synths in it.
