In reality, pop music has been seminal to the empowerment of many belittle minorities and the creation of a more variegated culture. Instead of pointlessly demeaning pop music as being worthless or hackneyed, one should praise it for the plethora of changes it has brought to the United States. While it may not be able to evoke nostalgia of the foregone “good old days”, pop music is a moving force that constantly pushes against the fabric of the society, urging the public to accept new ideas or alter their point of view. Regardless of the vagaries in government, politics, or the economy, pop music has proven itself in the past half-century to be unstoppable in its ability to revolutionize the American culture.
