List Criteria: Vote up and add all of your favorite pop artists whose biggest fans and target audience are teens.

In the entirety of the music world, teen pop is one of the most popular genres that resonates with its listeners the most. The primary fans of the genre - teenagers - tend to be rabid followers of trends and consumers of culture who actively share their interests with other on social media, so it should come as no surprise that many pop musicians' popularity has shot up with the help of teenagers. While teen pop is generally marketed to teens, the music has the typical elements of pop music - catchy hooks, upbeat lyrics, and simple melodies - that make it appealing to a wide audience. Lyrically, teen pop focuses on issues that resonate with teenage life - love, relationships, friendship, and the triumphs and trials of growing up are common themes addressed by teen singer. These are issues that many teens relate to, and thus teen pop stars remain popular well after their teen idol days because of how important they are in shaping the lives of their fans during their formative years.

So, who are the best teen pop bands and teen pop singers of all time? This list includes current teen pop singers like Katy Perry, One Direction, Demi Lovato, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, and the Jonas Brothers. During the late 1990s, teen pop bands ruled the radio charts with the likes of Britney Spears, N'Sync, and Backstreet Boys leading the charge - these 90s pop bands are included on this list too. No matter what teen pop band you're a fan of, you can be sure that they'll be represented on this list.

That said, it's up to you to determine who are the best teen pop bands of all time. If you notice that a teen pop singer isn't on this list and should be, feel free to add them. This list answers the questions "who are the best teen pop bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest teen pop 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 teen pop bands that you might've heard of.
