depends on your definition of 'pop'gtx

I would call any band that has either sought or achieved mainstream status 'pop.' So I would call Sonic Youth and Primus pop. But then I would call Nirvana and Butthole Surfers pop, too. Bands I wouldn't call 'pop'?--true old school punk bands like MDC, or grindcore bands like Incantation, or new weird art stuff like Lightning Bolt, or bands that just didn't care like Killdozer...

early versions of King Crimson had Greg Lake and John Wetton as bassists/singers, but, King Crimson's true front man is Robert Fripp...
