My whole life I introduced all types of song to my Dad yet he never liked any kind Pop songs, when I was in 6th grade- my friends weren't into them and I've even met people who would actually try to shut me down for playing them. For each of them I ask why? they could never give me a reasonable answer.

So here I am- can you tell me why? OR if you do like Pop songs why do you think people don't like them?

If you never heard a what a typical Pop song sounds like these are some examples.

I'd imagine when people (nowadays at least) hear the term "pop" for music they think of Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, etc. If that's the case then I can see why. I don't care for pop either really. Many of the better known artists seem like they're untalented or gimmicky. Maybe I'm oldschool or just don't care for it though.

I like some. It's not my main genre but I don't mind catchy songs. That's probably why I liked Lady Gaga's stuff from back around '08 or something.

Why listen to pop when you can listen to this.

It depends on the pop artist, but I don't mind it. The most popular artist I like is Beyonce. She's got some good beats, I dunno man.

Honestly, the hipster thing has died down, but I still experience incidents where people who are my age or younger try to say they wish their generation's music didn't suck, and that they listen to [said older band like the beatles or pink floyd] in an attempt to be edgy. Or maybe they genuinely like them? Either way, they sound SO pretentious saying it, and that's pretty hilarious.

I can't do any of the modern stuff, I stick to 80's and 90's. Although I do love pop if its in a other language other than English.

I just mentioned this song a day or two ago! In the thread about naming a song you like even tho you know it's bad. Or something like that.

Some are really catchy and upbeat. Others are just annoying with meaningless lyrics. It depends on the song really.
