Mainstream pop music you like Jan. 19th, 2013 @ 02:28 PM Reply

Us Newgrounders have some rather refined taste, and I doubt any of you would be caught dead listening to autotuned bubblegum pop like Justin Bieber or LMFAO. Judging from what I see, most of us here appreciate the more 'real' side of music (whatever that means to you).

However...

Is there any modern mainstream music you make exceptions for? I'm typically not very interested in what's the kiddies listen to these days, but I do make an exception for Cee Lo Green, one of the few popular artists right now that I really think has talent.

What about you, Newgrounds?

People only listened to cee lo for the fuck you song. Gnarles Barkley is the shit.

I do enjoy a bit of Bieber every now and then.
Thats pretty much it unless you want to count Kanye as pop.

About You has 6,000,000+ views. I'd consider them pretty popular.

Ha, did not know about that. I guess they're mildly popular I guess. Still I hear no radio plays, and that's the only song with that many views. Plus given they're a new band, it's pretty soon for them to get the popular status.

Gnarls Barkley was good.

I don't judge music by its fanbase. I honestly listen to something and I either like it or hate it. Music is that simple for me. I don't know whats mainstream or indie. None of it is exactly underground. It all just blends together and I havent listened to the radio in a decade. I like The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant, QOTSA, RZA. Those are all pretty pop.

Soul II Soul is one of my guilty pleasures, but other than not nothing really noticable. Got a thing for Rick Astley, dude's voice is just divine.

Lady Gaga, Britney Spears (some of her music anyway), Aqua (not so popular anymore... but they were)

I'm sure there are others, but I can't remember most of them.

There have been some of Aqua's new music in the radio (dont know if it is there anymore) also it is possible its just because i live in Denmark its/was there (Aqua is danish)


I'm think i may have spelled wrong in my post but Tom Flup have not made an edit buttom so don´t blame me :D

Well it's like they aren't a established band and big fan base or anything, and who haven't heard of them. Also according to some hipsters, when a bands song is being played on a radio channel or something, that means they're mainstream.

But any way, yeah I also like Gorillaz.

Can't say I like much of any mainstream "modern pop" music.
Then again my definition of modern would be anything from the end of the last decade into this decade.

yes I am 100% aware this decade isn't even halfway over yet.....

I'd like to see his argument for how they are not mainstream pop. I am honestly amazed how people categorize what is mainstream/pop and what is cool/indie.
