 Bubblegum pop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some of the defining characteristics of bubblegum pop include catchy melodies, simple three-chord structures, simple harmonies, and repetitive riffs or "hooks." Bubblegum pop is also characterized by its lightweight lyrics (which may include nursery rhymes or nonsense lyrics), often surrounding themes of romance and courtship.
Bubblegum pop is also reminiscent of pre-rock novelty songs such as "Abba Dabba Honeymoon" and "The Hut Sut Song," which hit the charts in the late 1940s, and hipster foolishness like Slim Gaillard's "Cement Mixer (Puti Puti)".
Bubblegum pop then appeared to be declining at the turn of the early millennium, as audiences tired of the many boy bands and pop princesses but suddenly started a new rebirth as network executives at Disney molded their female stars such as Hilary Duff, Hayden Panettiere, and Lindsay Lohan into pop princesses.

 Bubblegum pop @ Soundbug
Bubblegum pop (bubblegum rock, bubblegum music) is a genre of popular music and/or rock and roll.
Though many disagree, the band members actually referred to themselves as a "nouveau bubblegum band with teeth." Their songs were all simple, three-chord riffs with catchy choruses that occasionally made little sense (such as "Gabba Gabba Hey") and appeared on their album covers in cartoon form.
Though the band covered "Indian Giver", a massive bubblegum hit, at one point, many critics would still not classify even that song as bubblegum because the purpose of such punk covers (many punk bands cover pop hits) is to deconstruct the original.

Bubblegum was the biggest commercial trend in American rock during 1968-9.
But, in fact, Bubblegum was a recognizable and valid genre, significant for its overwhelming success with the under -18 audience, and also, in retrospect, for many records of lasting worth.
Like any artificial trend, Bubblegum lasted only a couple of years, but while it was around it provided a fertile breeding ground for some of the 70s leading producers, and for studio experiments and musical innovations whose effectiveness can't be denied.

 AAW: Bubblegum Crisis Review
The character design in Bubblegum Crisis, by Kenichi Sonoda, is attractive, with a noticeably more mature look to several of the women, and though the art and backgrounds are a bit inconsistent, they generally look good enough and improve significantly as the series progresses.
Despite the sort-of-sequels, Bubblegum Crash and Bubblegum Crisis 2040, my first recommendation if you liked Bubblegum Crisis would be AD Police Files; it is much darker, more realistic, and stylish than the series that spawned it, and arguably better, too.

Although Bubblegum has gained a certain cachet of cool in some circles over the past few decades (while remaining a pop pariah in other circles), during its original heyday it was viewed strictly as fodder for juvenile tastes, pure pabulum for pre-teen people.

 PopMatters | Columns | Iain Ellis | Alternative Rock Cultures | Bubblegum Pops the (Counter-)Culture
Fake and faceless, bubblegum pop in the late '60s and early '70s offended the prevailing rock myths of artistic creativity and rugged opposition to the powers-that-be.
As such, bubblegum was not only a tacit reaction to rock snobbery, but it was also the second coming of the novelty pop that had dominated the US charts in the late '50s.
As with bubblegum, the humor of punk's back-to-basics model was an implicit (and often explicit) satirical counter-reaction to the self-importance of many of the rock idols/idles of the day.

 Splendid Magazine reviews Mark Lanegan: Bubblegum
His tattered wail has always hinted at a man who's seen more than his share of fucked-up situations, and has, more or less, escaped them with a few broken bones and a deeply scarred psyche.
He has never sounded more desperate than he does traipsing through Bubblegum's dark alleys -- and strangely, it's that superego-addled despondency that makes this his most compelling, not to mention complete, work to date.
It's all his worst junkie desires come to life, from the greasy stomp of "Sideways in Reverse" to the moribund and reflective "One Hundred Days" and loved-to-death lament "Come to Me".

 Barnes & Noble.com - Music: Bubblegum, Mark Lanegan, CD
The acoustic lament "Bombed" -- which, with its "when I'm bombed, I stretch like bubblegum," serves as a de facto title track -- falls into the latter category, its unsteady gait causing concern that those hellhounds on his tail just might be closing in.
The disc's more aggressive tracks, notably the rat-in-a-cage rattler "Sideways in Reverse," aren't markedly brighter, but the bulldozing guitars (some brandished by Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme and Nick Oliveri) impel Lanegan to strain against the dark forces more fitfully.
Dark forces lurk in just about every corner of Bubblegum, whether they be erotic, as on "Come to Me," a lustful duet with PJ Harvey, or substance-fueled, as on the insistently oozing "Driving Death Valley Blues." Less convincing singers make rock 'n' roll cliché of these themes; Lanegan makes them frighteningly real and engrossing.
