Pop Punk
POP PUNK (also known as PUNK-POP) is a music genre that fuses elements of punk rock and pop music . It typically combines fast tempos , loud and distorted electric guitars, and power chord changes with pop-influenced melodies, vocal styles, and lyrical themes. Pop-influenced punk rock emerged in the mid-1970s with a music style that was stylistically similar to power pop . By the mid-1980s, several bands merged hardcore punk with pop music to create a new, faster pop punk sound such as Dag Nasty , the Nip Drivers , T.S.O.L. , Social Distortion , and the Descendents .

and United Kingdom

Pop Rock
POP ROCK (also typeset as POP/ROCK ) is rock music with a lighter, smoother approach that is more reminiscent of commercial pop music . Originating in the 1950s as an alternative to rock and roll , early pop rock was influenced by the beat, arrangements, and style of rock and roll (and sometimes doo-wop ), but placed a greater emphasis on professional songwriting and recording craft. It may be viewed as one genre field, rather than two distinct categories. The detractors of pop rock often deride it as a slick, commercial product, less authentic than rock music .

Power Pop
POWER POP is a pop rock music subgenre that draws its inspiration from 1960s British and American rock music. It typically incorporates a combination of musical devices including strong melodies, clear vocals, economical arrangements and prominent guitar riffs. Instrumental solos are usually kept to a minimum, and blues elements are largely downplayed. In the 1980s and 1990s, power pop continued as a commercially modest genre but by the mid-1990s through the 2000s, power pop was mainly in the underground. While its cultural impact has waxed and waned over the decades, power pop is among rock's most enduring subgenres

New Wave Music
NEW WAVE is a genre of rock music popular from the late 1970s to the mid-1980s with ties to 1970s punk rock . New wave moved away from smooth blues and rock and roll sounds to create pop music that incorporated electronic and experimental music , mod and disco . Initially new wave was similar to punk rock, before becoming a distinct genre . It subsequently engendered subgenres and fusions, including synth-pop . New wave differs from other movements with ties to first-wave punk as it displays characteristics common to pop music, rather than the more "artsy" post-punk , though it incorporates much of the original punk rock sound and ethos, while exhibiting greater complexity in both music and lyrics. Common characteristics of new wave music include the use of synthesizers and electronic productions, the importance of styling and the arts, as well as diversity

Surf Music
SURF MUSIC is a subgenre of rock music associated with surf culture , particularly as found in Southern California
Southern California
. It was especially popular from 1962 to 1964 in two major forms. The first is INSTRUMENTAL SURF, distinguished by reverb -drenched electric guitars played to evoke the sound of crashing waves, largely pioneered by Dick Dale and the Del-Tones. The second is VOCAL SURF, which took the original surf sound and added vocal harmonies backed by basic Chuck Berry rhythms, a movement led by the Beach Boys . Dick Dale developed the surf sound from instrumental rock , where he added Middle Eastern and Mexican influences , a spring reverb , and the rapid alternate picking characteristics. His regional hit "Let\'s Go Trippin\' " (1961) launched the surf music craze, inspiring many others to take up the approach

Bubblegum Pop
BUBBLEGUM POP (also known as BUBBLEGUM MUSIC or simply BUBBLEGUM) is a genre of pop rock music with an upbeat sound contrived and marketed to appeal to pre-teens and teenagers, which may be produced in an assembly-line process, driven by producers and often using unknown singers. Bubblegum's classic period ran from 1967 to 1972. A second wave of bubblegum started two years later and ran until 1977 when disco took over and punk rock emerged. The genre was predominantly a singles phenomenon rather than an album-oriented one. Because many acts were manufactured in the studio using session musicians, a large number of bubblegum songs were by one-hit wonders . Among the best-known acts of bubblegum's golden era are 1910 Fruitgum Company , The Ohio Express and The Archies , an animated group which had the most successful bubblegum song with " Sugar, Sugar ", Billboard Magazine's No. 1 single for 1969

Electric Guitar
An ELECTRIC GUITAR is a fretted stringed instrument with a neck and body that uses a pickup to convert the vibration of its strings into electrical signals. The vibration occurs when a guitarist strums , plucks or fingerpicks the strings. It is sensed by a pickup , most commonly by a magnetic pickup that uses the principle of direct electromagnetic induction . The signal generated by an electric guitar is too weak to drive a loudspeaker , so it is plugged into a guitar amplifier before being sent to a loudspeaker, which makes a sound loud enough to hear. The output of an electric guitar is an electric signal, and the signal can easily be altered by electronic circuits to add "color" to the sound or change the sound. Often the signal is modified using effects such as reverb and distortion and "overdrive" , with the growling sound of the latter being a key element of the sound of the elec
