The genre typically incorporates melodic hooks , vocal harmonies, an energetic performance, and "happy"-sounding music underpinned by a sense of yearning, longing, or despair. The term "power pop" was coined by the Who's Pete Townshend in to describe their style of music. However, the term became more widely identified with subsequent artists from the s who sought to revive Beatles-style pop.
The sound of the genre became more established thanks to early s hits by Badfinger , the Raspberries , and Todd Rundgren. Subsequent artists occasionally drew from developments such as new wave , punk , glam rock , pub rock , college rock , and neo-psychedelia.
Power pop reached its commercial peak during the rise of punk and new wave in the late s, with Cheap Trick , the Knack , the Romantics , Nick Lowe , Dave Edmunds , and Dwight Twilley. During this time, music critics who wrote about the phenomenon popularized the term's usage. After a popular and critical backlash to the genre's biggest-ever hit, " My Sharona " The Knack, , record companies generally stopped signing power pop groups, and most of the s bands broke up in the early s.
Over the proceeding decades, power pop continued with modest commercial success while largely remaining an object of critical derision. The s saw a new wave of alternative bands that were drawn to s artists because of the s music they influenced. Although not as successful as their predecessors, Jellyfish , the Posies , Redd Kross , Teenage Fanclub , and Material Issue were critical and cult favorites.
In the mids, an offshoot genre that combined power pop harmonies with uptempo punk, dubbed " punk-pop ", reached mainstream popularity. Power pop is a more aggressive form of pop rock that is based on catchy, melodic hooks and energetic moods.
An essential feature of power pop is that its "happy"-sounding arrangements are supported by a sense of "yearning", "longing", or "despair" similar to formative works such as " Wouldn't It Be Nice " The Beach Boys, and " Pictures of Lily " The Who, This might be achieved with an unexpected harmonic change or lyrics that refer to "tonight", "tomorrow night", "Saturday night", and so on.
This mirrored similar developments with the term " punk rock " from earlier in the decade. There is significant debate among fans over what should be classed as power pop.
He later wrote that "much to my chagrin, the term was snapped up by legions of limp, second-rate bands hoping the majors would see them as a safe alternative to punk. Power pop has struggled with its critical reception and is sometimes viewed as a shallow style of music associated with teenage audiences. The perception was exacerbated by record labels in the early s who used the term for marketing post-punk styles.
If you're labeled that, you're history. I guess you could say I think this music is for pussies and should be stopped. I wanted something with more gravitas. Power pop originated in the late s as young music fans began to rebel against the emerging pretensions of rock music. When Pete Townshend coined the term, he suggested that songs like " I Can't Explain " and " Substitute " were more accessible than the changing, more experimental directions other groups such as the Beatles were taking.
Club ' s Noel Murray said that "once the sound became more viable and widely imitated, it was easier to trace the roots of the genre back to rockabilly, doo-wop, girl groups, and the early records of the Beatles, the Byrds, the Beach Boys, the Kinks , and the Who.AC/DC. AC/DC are an Australian hard rock band, formed in by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, who have remained constant members. Commonly classified as hard rock, they are considered pioneers of heavy metal and are sometimes classified as such, though they themselves have always classified their music as simply "rock and roll".
