You can click on the pop music band names to see more information about that particular notable pop music group. If they're near the top of the best pop music artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top pop music bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the pop music band names themselves. List items include The Beatles, Michael Jackson and many more. Vote for your favorite items by clicking the thumbs up button.

The list includes all new pop music bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of pop music, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into pop music music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good pop music bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent pop music bands. This list answers the questions "who are the best pop music bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest pop music musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular pop music bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
