I wanted to give a hearty thanks for visiting our little corner of the internet and hope it aids in your music discovery. Keep in mind, our Top 25 for 2017 will be out the end of this week. David Bash’s top list is also something to look forward to after New Year rings in. Overall this was a good year for power pop as the majority of music that falls into this genre expanded from soft pop across the spectrum to hard rock. Less fell into that traditional, Beatlesque bucket directly and if that makes power pop an arbitrary category for your music, so be it.
Thanks to all the artists who created this year, thanks to all the Facebook groups I follow; Power Pop Rock, No Hipsters Allowed, Audities, Power Pop Action, and Powerpopalooza. Also a huge thanks to Dave “The Boogieman” and Johnny Lightning for promoting the site on 11L Radio New York International. Looking forward to a good 2018!
