Recently, electropop has literally popped up everywhere. Though the genre was established in the 1980s, electropop started becoming popular in the 2000s. Defined as a form of electronic music that incorporates synthesizers into its sound, electropop bands were initially labeled as being cold and robotic by critics, but ultimately electropop artists had the last laugh, as with synth pop, the songs eventually became wildly popular. It's influence can be heard anywhere on modern pop radio, and can't be confused with electronic dance music, though may feel inclined to do so.

So, what are the best electro pop bands? Any list of electropop bands and artists has to include the likes of Kraftwerk, New Order, Owl City, Chvrches, Pet Shop Boys, M83 and Lykke Li. These electropop artists are widely known as being the best in the genre and with good reason. Their songs are known by even the most casual of electropop fans and they're catchy and fun, aka the hallmarks of a good pop song

That said, it's up to you to determine what are the best electropop bands. If you notice someone is missing from this list, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best electropop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest electropop 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 electropop bands that you might've heard of.
