Pop-Rock:
Pop rock is a music genre which mixes a catchy pop style and light lyrics in its (typically) guitar-based rock songs. There are varying definitions of the term, ranging from a slower and mellower form of rock music to a subgenre of pop music. The detractors of pop rock often deride it as a slick, commercial product, less authentic than rock music.

Pop rock has been described as an "upbeat variety of rock music represented by artists such as Elton John, Paul McCartney, Rod Stewart,Chicago, Icon For Hire, and Peter Frampton." Critic Philip Auslander argues that the distinction between pop and rock is more pronounced in the US than in the UK. He claims in the US, pop has roots in white crooners such as Perry Como, whereas rock is rooted in African-American-influenced forms such as rock and roll. Auslander points out that the concept of pop rock, which blends pop and rock is at odds with the typical conception of pop and rock as opposites. Auslander and several other scholars such as Simon Frith and Grossberg argue that pop music is often depicted as an inauthentic, cynical, "slickly commercial" and formulaic form of entertainment. In contrast, rock music is often heralded as an authentic, sincere, and anti-commercial form of music, which emphasizes songwriting by the singers and bands, instrumental virtuosity, and a "real connection with the audience".
Simon Frith's analysis of the history of popular music from the 1950s to the 1980s has been criticized by B. J. Moore-Gilbert, who argues that Frith and other scholars have over-emphasized the role of "rock" in the history of popular music by naming every new genre using the "rock" suffix. Thus when a folk-oriented style of music developed in the 1960s, Frith terms it "folk rock", and the pop-infused styles of the 1970s were called "pop rock". Moore-Gilbert claims that this approach unfairly puts rock at the apex, and makes every other influence become an add-on to the central core of rock.

Pop-Rock:
Pop-Rock ist ein Sammelbegriff für Musikstile, die Elemente der Pop- und Rockmusik miteinander kombinieren.
Die Musikwerke weisen meist eine einfachere Struktur, eingängige Melodien und Wiederholungen des Refrains auf. Instrumente sind hauptsächlich elektrische Gitarren, E-Bass und Schlagzeuge, elektronische Instrumente werden meist nur begleitend eingesetzt. Eine Eigenschaft von modernen Pop-Rock-Stücken ist der Wechsel eher balladenhafter Verse mit kräftigeren Refrains. Der Musikwissenschaftler Tibor Kneif beschrieb das Genre: „Der Begriff Pop-Rock bezeichnet heute eine ins kitschige, billig Sentimentale abgleitende Richtung innerhalb der Rockmusik.“

Die Kategorisierung von Künstlern erfolgt subjektiv meist durch Musikjournalisten bekannter Musikzeitschriften wie dem Billboard-Magazin: In den 1970er Jahren waren bekannte Interpreten Elton John, Peter Frampton, Paul McCartney bzw. Wings und Fleetwood Mac, während in den 1980er Jahren vor allem Billy Joel, Hall & Oates und George Michael erfolgreich waren. Eine weitere Pop-Rock-Welle datiert in den 1990er Jahren, als Interpreten wie Melissa Etheridge Erfolge hatten. Andere moderne Pop-Rock-Interpreten sind beispielsweise Michelle Branch, Vanessa Carlton, Avril Lavigne, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus, Pink und im deutschsprachigen Segment Juli, LaFee und Tokio Hotel.
