Pop music is a genre of popular music that originated in its modern form during the mid-1950s in the United States and the United Kingdom. …pop music remained roughly synonymous with Rock and Roll music until the late 1960s, after which pop became associated with music that was more commercial, ephemeral, and accessible. It originated with the ragtime music of the 1890s and early 1900s.
