  American Pop Icons - Introduction
Pop art was in fact proposing a new kind of subjectivity, one that did not rely on an artist’s singular expressive gesture.
Pop, which came to encompass the fields of music, consumer design, and fashion, corresponded to an entire way of life among young people in the 1960s.
In Pop art, the narrative or epic impulse of Abstract Expressionism was replaced with straightforward depictions of the everyday, and the mass-produced was afforded the same significance as unique works of fine art.

 Pop Art
Pop generally involves the use of existing imagery from mass culture already processed into two dimensions, preferably borrowed from advertising, photography, comic strips and other mass media sources.
Pop artists, especially in America, have a preference for centralized composition and for flat areas of unmodulated and unmixed color bound by hard edges.
Pop concentrates on the contemporary subject-matter integral to the ready-made sources the artists have used.

Pop Art brought art back to the material realities of everyday life, to popular culture (hence ``pop''), in which ordinary people derived most of their visual pleasure from television, magazines, or comics.
Pop Art emerged in the mid 1950s in England, but realized its fullest potential in New York in the '60s where it shared, with Minimalism, the attentions of the art world.
In Pop Art, the epic was replaced with the everyday and the mass-produced awarded the same significance as the unique; the gulf between ``high art'' and ``low art'' was eroding away.

 AllRefer.com - pop art (American Art) - Encyclopedia
pop art, a movement that first emerged in Great Britain at the end of the 1950s as a reaction against the seriousness of abstract expressionism.
British and American pop artists employed a common imagery found in comic strips, soup cans, and Coke bottles to express formal abstract relationships.
Incorporating techniques of sign painting and commercial art into their work, as well as commercial literary imagery, pop artists such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol attempted to fuse elements of popular and high culture to erase the boundaries between the two.

 American Psycho (2000): Christian Bale, Willem Dafoe, Jared Leto, Reese Witherspoon - PopMatters Film Review
And so, the closest we come to actually witnessing one of Bateman's murders is when he is stabbing a prostitute in bed while both he and she are covered by a bed sheet, and we only see the spread of blood as it saturates the fabric.
Throughout American Psycho, we are rarely witness to explicit violent acts; instead, we are shown their aftermath and clean up (which are, of course, disturbing in their own right).
American Psycho's violence and its critical reception raise a number of important questions about gender, subject matter, violence and "appropriateness." In 1991, Ellis's book was a perfect target and example for feminist critiques of patriarchy.

 Pop music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The expression "pop music" may also be used to refer to particular subgenres (within the pop music genre) that are in some cases referred to as soft rock and pop/rock.
The average consumer of pop music is often understood to be in his or her early teenage years, or a female of an older age, making it an important mediator of youth culture.
Partly because youth culture itself is an object of social concern, pop music has historically been the source of numerous moral panics, especially as many of the styles that influence it trickle up from minority groups (racial, ethnic, sexual or class-based) about which the dominant class holds negative stereotypes.

What surprised me about American Pop, seeing it again after about fifteen years, was how raunchy it isn't, given Bakshi's rep as an X-rated Disney.
Coonskin is, I think, Bakshi's masterpiece; American Pop is his epic, a sprawling and messy work whose flaws are inextricable from its brilliance.

The American tourist by then had become a fixture in Europe and the subject of a number of jokes, and had elicited extensive comment by irritated Europeans.
The Ugly American was a caricature built on the reality of a boisterous, loud, uncultured, unsophisticated, arrogant, insensitive clod -- one who was prone to throwing around too much money, dressing absurdly, and acting oblivious to the subtleties of high culture.
Seldom are Americans mistaken for Europeans, but it is commonplace to mistake Europeans (even the French!) for Americans, especially among the young.

 Turkey's anti-American pop culture. - By Richard Morgan - Slate Magazine
When one of the American soldiers expresses concern that a truckful of Iraqi civilians are packed in too tight to breathe, a fellow soldier stops the car and bullet-soaks the trailer and its human cargo.
The Americans' motive is Uncle Sam's lust for the country's rich borax supply (Turkey is home to 60 percent of the world's borax, a mineral used in weapons, radiation shields, and space technology).
This wave of anti-American Turkish pop culture is so widespread that it has been the sole topic of its own Senate foreign relations committee hearing; Turkey is, after all, a key NATO ally.

The term Pop, which spread to music and fashion, corresponded to an entire way of life among young people in the 1960s, becoming a significant sociological phenomenon that completely altered perceptions for the remaining years of the century.

 Opinion: American Pop
It seems that a society so obsessed with doing as much as possible every day (work, sports, school, music lessons, dancing, drama rehearsals, homework) no longer has time to sit down and enjoy a good old-fashioned root beer in a frosty mug.
The decline of traditional soda pop is just another instance of popular culture usurping our heritage.
Once people start enjoying root beer again, the possibilities will be endless: our pop culture may again accept milkshakes, cream sodas and chocolate egg creams into its ranks of trendy beverages.
