  Bubblegum pop - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 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.
