RockBoar.com Picture    Power pop is a popular musical genre that draws its inspiration from 1960s British and American pop and rock music.

   It typically incorporates a combination of musical devices such as strong melodies, crisp vocal harmonies, economical arrangements, and prominent guitar riffs. Instrumental solos are usually kept to a minimum, and blues elements are largely downplayed. Recordings tend to display production values that lean toward compression and a forceful drum beat. Instruments usually include one or more electric guitars, an electric bass guitar, a drum kit, and sometimes electric keyboards or synthesizers.

     While its cultural impact has waxed and waned over the decades, power pop is among rock's most enduring subgenres.
