What is the exact difference between Rock music and Pop music?
Let me first assure you that I understand what I'm doing here is sharing my own perception of things, I don't offer this as the authoritative and received rule, but merely as the way I see it. And let me also announce, before I begin, that my point... read more
It used to be that popular music or "pop," as it came to be known, encompassed every type of music with the exception of classical music. I think even now the same rule applies. Country, R&B, Jazz and Latin are all forms of popular music.
The term though now is applied more to music that teenagers and young adults like. Justin Bieber would be considered pop, but you wouldn't put an artist like Jack White or a group like Coldplay in the same category, even though they might show up on the pop charts. These artists would be classified as rock artists.
The line is very vague as to what distinguishes pop from rock. That is the trouble with musical categories.
Duke Ellington once said something to the effect that there should only be two categories of music, good music and bad music. I wholeheartedly agree.
Besides autotune you mean?! LOL Many rock bands and artists still believe in writing their own lyrics and using their own melodies and are focused more on their vocal skills rather than the theatrical aspects of performing/performances. Many pop stars are seemingly more interested in how they look than how they sound.
not being very astute on this subject, i should probably run away from this question, but, i will give a try. Pop... short for popular music seems to have a wider appeal because it has a more visual component. the music itself requires dance moves and staging. Rock simply is music. The lyrics scream to be heard with the instruments underlining that scream. Pop is more gentle to the ear. Usually more on key, and lyrics?... the words tend to be more gentler too.... being an old Rock fan, i just don't think there is anything else to say.... great question, though. take care.
